It’s Carter’s first Halloween! And we are off to Hogwarts! I am so excited to share our family Halloween costumes that took me weeks to think about and only moments to put it all together. My husband and I haven’t actually celebrated Halloween since we were in college doing “college things”. But I always loved watching my sister dress up my niece and nephew in their costumes because she always has a way of dressing them up creatively and reflective of their personality. We chose the Harry Potter theme based off of being able to find ways for all of us to be involved and because of my love for books that I want to share with my son (so much that I’m hoping to take him to Hogwarts at Universal next summer when he’s almost 1 – mostly because I have never been and we can drop by Disney so he can meet characters from Winnie the Pooh and the Lion King).

We are still determining whether Carter will join his cousins in trick-or-treating this year, or whether we will just sit on the front porch and hand out candy to the kids in the neighborhood, but either way, Carter is set to celebrate his first Halloween as a two-month old heading to Gryffindor.
When I started looking for our family Halloween outfit, I began it by basing it on what we could find for Carter in his size. Many costumes were for 0-6m or 3-6m which were way too big for him. Finally, I found out that buybuy BABY had tons of Halloween costumes and found a Harry Potter outfit that would fit him exactly.
After finding his look, everything else fell into place. With just a few clicks on Amazon to pick out the dress pieces for mom, dad, and the fur baby, and then we were all set for our family Harry Potter Halloween costume.
