I need ideas for Me, Husband and my 2 year old!  Last year we were the Flintstones. The year before that was Nun/preist/devil child combo.  I was thinking Kiss but we are a kid short.  That would just be silly.  I also need something that will also make sence with just husband and I (if we went to an adult party)

Ready.... GO!

Is your kid a boy or a girl? That may make a difference.

Other ideas

3 little pigs
Little red riding hood, big bad wolf, and grandma
Mr, Mrs, and baby potato heads
Sully, Mike, & Boo (from Monster's Inc.)
Addams family - Morticia, Gomez, pugsley or wednesday, or whatever, pick and choose the favs
Sally, Jack, and Zero from Nightmare before Christmas
A Hot doy, Ketchup and Mustard
Trolls (Bright colored hair)
Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, and Alice (in wonderland)
Batman, Robin, Catwoman (again or combination of)
Family Guy Characters
Gilligans Island Characters (any combination)
Homer Marge and Maggie

I'll keep thinking, but if there is more of a genre or area that you are considering let me know.

When I was a kid, my mom made us M&M costumes.  My dad and her were M&M bags, one peanut, one plain, and my sister and I were little M&Ms.  The bags were just yellow and brown broadcloth sacks with openings for our heads and arms, with the lettering on the front done in white felt and fabric paint.  The little M&Ms were essentially 2 round pillows each, with a "M" on the front in felt.  We wore them like vests, with 2 shoulder straps and 2 side straps sewn onto each.  We wore these costumes for 4 years, and when my sister and I got older, we wore the bag costumes.  Oh, my mom also made little hair clips for us with M&M bags tied in the middle to make a bow.

Oh, I have a girl.  I like to do more pop culture costumes... because I don't really like cutsy.  I was thinking of Annie... (my daughter has red curly hair!) With husband as Daddy Warbucks and me as Grace.  But that wouldn't make sense if we went out alone. Undecided

My husband hasn't dressed up in a while, for some reason.  But my 2 yr old and I have dressed up together every year so far.  Her first Halloween I was Little Bo Peep and she was a lamb.  Hubby could dress up as a jailbird, and then when people asked, you could say he was your shephard's crook...  (Bad joke, I know.)  Then last year, I was a witch and Kit was my little black cat.  Hubby could be a warlock.  This one's kinda simple, though.  Maybe not as clever as it could be if you go out alone.  This year Kit and I are going to be mermaids.  I doubt your husband would want to dress up as King Triton, but you could go as King Triton, Ariel and Ursula the Sea Witch.  (Well, for that matter, I wonder whether you could want to go as Ursula the Sea Witch....)

considering you don't want cutesy, the jack, sally, zero combo suggestied by Ezri_B sounds perfect for you and it would work if it was just the two of you.

I'm taking my daughter out this year and I was thinking of the Doki Doki Yummy Chums
(made by same company as Hello-Kitty).  I was going to make her into a chicken chum and I could be the hamburger or the fries or soda, but then I was thinking since we both have carmel-colored skin we could both be chicken nuggets and I could be the food container too by wearing a box around my waist.  Roll Eyes

If you and hubby are separate your costumes would make sense, but it might be elorborate to do?
