These adorable parent and child Halloween costume ideas will make you want a kid, stat

Halloween is by far the best holiday ever. Not only do you get tons of delicious candy, but it’s a sanctioned day to dress up as whatever your heart desires. Those of us with a penchant for home decor can also decorate our homes or throw a truly fantastic Halloween party, although none of our parties will rival Neil Patrick Harris’ extravaganza. But a girl can dream.

If you have a small child, that’s no excuse to ignore the holiday. In fact, the possibilities are endless—perhaps more so than the usual couple costumes hilarity.
