Los Angeles: Hollywood beauty Jennifer Garner is having a tough time getting her daughters to pick a Halloween costume.

The `Alias` actress has daughters Violet, 4 and Seraphina, 21 months with husband Ben Affleck and they keeping changing their minds about the costumes, reported People magazine online.

"It seems like every time we ask her, it`s a different farm animal. My oldest daughter has a very clear idea, but it`s contingent upon my younger daughter," said Garner.

"Costumes are not ready in my house. Now, I`m realizing I need to at least get the orders in," she added.

Juggling family life, work and philanthropy, Garner says she`s doing her best to strike a balance.

"No matter what, it is very tricky and difficult ? just to be a good parent at all," said Garner, who had been filming `Arthur` with Russell Brand and Helen Mirren.

"I have a lot of help. And for that I`m very grateful. I wish every mom could have a hair and makeup team once a week to show up and fix them up," she said.
