Until I viewed this photo of Neil Patrick Harris and his adorable family dressed up as Alice in Wonderland characters for Halloween, I didn’t know that my ovaries could hug each other. But based on the squeezing sensation that’s currently going on down there, I’ll go ahead and say that it’s possible. I’ll also go ahead and say that I’m obsessed with this family. Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka, Harper, Gideon — I’d kidnap all four of them if the opportunity presented itself. (And it wasn’t such an hyped-up crime.)
NPH shared this photo of the fam on Instagram yesterday and informed us that it’s just (“just”) for the kids’ preschool Halloween carnival. And that they therefore have another fun-filled family costume debuting on October 31st. That’s right guys! Your ovaries are going to get ANOTHER workout in just a week’s time. Which brings me to my new Harris-Burtka family tagline: NPH family photos…they’re like Soul Cycle for your ovaries.
While the guys have wowed us on every Halloween since the kids have been born, I’ve got to say that 2013: Part 1 is my favorite so far. Maybe because it involves a baby dressed as a bunny (!!!) or maybe because David Burtka pulls off that Tweedledee hat better than any man should. I don’t know. I can’t tell you why my heart does what it does. All I can tell you is that they should serve as Halloween inspiration for families everywhere. If one other family, famous or otherwise, even approaches this level of adorableness, the world will be a better place. That’s just science.
