  • These are such great ideas! There are 5 of us, but we’ve never all dressed up together. I was starting to think about costumes today, and we might have to do this! We usually have 1-2 dressed up as Star Wars characters, but maybe this year we’ll take the leap and all 5 of us can dress up together. 🙂 Thanks for the adorable ideas! I also love Inside Out, my kids LOVE that movie.
