This is what happens when you guide your family into a certain costume direction and it turns out incredibly right:
Halloween is my favorite.
Welcome to the jungle, my friends.
We were Guns 'n' Roses! No, my kids don't exactly know who they are, but they understand rockstars. And they recognize the brilliance of a good electric guitar solo.
And they can sing a mean "Sweet Child of Mine" line.
Here we have Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin (with browner, curlier hair), and Slash.
My family is awesome.
