An easier time for Halloween costumes: when Mommy got to decide!

I make sure we spread the Halloween fun out over the month with non-scary Halloween activities. We pick out our family Halloween costumes, curl up together for a family movie night to watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and continue the ghost and pumpkin tree tradition my mom and I started when I was a kid.
Okay, so the little one is easy. Woodstock. Mommy's got that one covered.
Now I've got to figure out how to make a Snoopy scarecrow carrying a pumpkin with a ghost in it and what exactly that means to a 5 year old's imagination. Ah, the good old days of Halloweens when I dressed him as a puppy and he had no say because he couldn't talk are gone. Of course, I'm joking and I love that he's picked out my all-time favorite characters for this year's Halloween costume theme.
How is the costume hunt going in your neck of the woods? Have your kids decided on their Halloween costumes yet?
