Halloween 2016: Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's annual family photo doesn't disappoint

Ever since Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka welcomed their twins, Gideon and Harper, back in 2010, they have proved time and time again what incredible parents they are.

We mean, they are definitely up there as one of our all time fave celeb families.

The Harris-Burtka family really come into their own on Halloween, with the clan making it a tradition to post the most adorable and lovable family Halloween portraits every year, so much so that we have actually found ourselves getting excited about what they will be dressing as each year.

In short, the famous family’s Halloween costumes have become as much of an October 31st tradition as eating too many toffee apples and watching Hocus Pocus.

When Gideon and Harper turned one, Neil and David kicked off the tradition with a Peter Pan themed extravaganza, with David dressing as Peter Pan, his husband as Captain Hook, Gideon as Smee and Harper as Tinkerbell:

Aged two, Neil was the Tin Man, David the Scarecrow, Gideon the Lion, and Harper Dorothy as they recreated The Wizard Of Oz:

The next year, the proud dads dressed as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, with Gideon as The White Rabbit and Harper as Alice for their Alice In Wonderland Halloween portrait:

And then, the family decided that the only appropriate theme was, of course, Batman:

Last year, Neil proudly showed off the family’s Star-Wars-inspired costumes:

And yesterday, just when we thought that the family couldn’t get any better, they proved us wrong with this fantastic Halloween tribute to Old Hollywood:

That’s little Harper as Marilyn, Neil as Groucho Marx, David as Charlie Chaplin, and Gideon as James Dean.

Absolutely fantastic – needless to say, we are already counting down the days until Halloween 2017, just so that we can see what theme they go for next.
