Neil Patrick Harris, his husband David Burtka, and their twins Harper and Gideon have been winning Halloween since the twins were one.

They started this tradition back in 2011 and haven’t missed a single year.

The Harris/Burtka family doesn’t just dress up, they coordinate their costumes every year to a certain movie or theme.

Starting as a cute little family that never wanted to grow up, to a creepy collection of horror films, their family is not shy when it comes to the creativity of their costumes.
