    Man, those costumes are fantastic (the parents). If I were that little, I’d be freaking out! Great photo.

    Alice in W was for the kids’ school event.
    This is their annual family photo. Gideon and Harper are very sweet, and really do have spooktacular parents.

    OK I’m happy for these guys but do they have to rub their perfect family in the faces of us singletons? I know I’m being crabby and jealous… but that’s just it. I want what NPH has and it gives me the sads every time I see his happy, picture-perfect family :(

    @Jaker, LOL.

    @Adrenan P, you’re a jerk. I suppose people who adopt kids aren’t really parents? What trash you are.

    Joan Crawford? No, I sort of picture Anne Geddes as she holds the kid upside down with one hand and the hot glue gun in the other.

    jk jk

    These are NOT their children. They belong to a mother who is not in the picture.

    go drink a tall heaping deep glass of STFU!

  7. Lifesart says

    These ARE their children, by all that is right and legal. And I’ll bet these kids are happy, and well cared for and loved beyond measure.

    So THAT’S what Grandpa Munster must have looked like as a young bat. My, my, MY. It almost makes one want to travel back to the Ninth Century.

    Jeeves, pack my bags and fire up the time machine. Oh, and don’t forget the Plague-be-Gone.

    Adorable pic! Nice to see how much fun this family has together.

    Misery loves company. And judging by some of the pathetic replies here, misery also loves the Towleroad comment section.

    Hah! I don’t know if I read this blog for the great stories or the comments. It’s a tossup because the bitter trolls are so insanely pathetic.

  11. Lucas H says

    That’s freaking cute overload right there. Can they adopt me too? Or can I be their new best friend? PLEASE???

    I could really use a fraction of the money in their costume budget. It could put a sizable dent in my student loans.
