"Not only was this costume extremely easy to create since it is considered semi-homemade," wrote Campbell, who was pregnant with her third child at the time. "But the kids were so excited to tell everyone that they were police officers and we were the robbers! I even found an option if the baby happened to arrive early, where you can wear the baby in a carrier and make the baby the bag of money. Cute, right?"

We think this family should be under arrest — for looking so adorable!
