A Dinosaur and Spiderman

_DSC5451 _DSC6071

Ollie got to wear the dinosaur costume that Noah wore 2 years ago. Check it out. When Noah was his age he was actually scared to wear it. Ollie didn’t want to take it off! I think he may have worn it for 3 days straight. He loved running around the house yelling “Raaaawr!” I finally had to hide it.



My friend, Heather, had a Halloween party. This is probably the only time you will ever see Joe in a costume. If you can’t guess…he is Remy and I am Colette from Ratatouille. Ollie cracks me up in these pictures.


Heather and I share the same love/hate for Martha Stewart. We found all this awesome Halloween stuff in the October issue and it was all over. Had to be done. Heather made that house and actually poured windows using melted sugar. Isn’t it cool how the light passes through. Cool….but crazy! Darn you, Martha!


I had an Azalea bush that died on me. (no surprise) So, I spray painted it and we hung the favors off of it. We also made ghosts from fondant, marshmallow bones, and skeleton cookies. All Martha creations. She really makes me crazy.



Halloween night we went to our church for a some candy, bouncy houses, airplane rides and all kinds of crazy activities. Lots of fun….but whoa, sensory overload! Good thing Amah and Yeh Yeh came with us.

Ollie was a fan of the popcorn, face painting and balloon animals. Daddy was a good sport.

Noah just liked to show off his Spiderman muscles. He’ll sing the theme song if you ask him. Although, instead of “spins a web, any size” he sings “spins a wrench, any size.” heh. (He’s also a fan of Handy Manny.)


Noah also enjoyed the balloons and face painting. I wasn’t with him when he got his face painted. But when he saw it in the mirror at home he instantly broke into tears. My perfectionist child was upset that the mouth wasn’t exactly how he envisioned it. I’m sure my Mom would laugh at this since she had to put up with much worse from me at that age. Sorry Mom. I understand now. :) I guess I had it coming.

These are so great! Did you really make that dragon costume? Seriously...you are the WOMAN...is there anything you can't do?? :) Ollie's face is pretty funny checking out you and Joe's costume, which are great too by the way...fun, fun!!

Adorable. The kids faces looking at your husband is classic. Loved all the Martha stuff. Very impressive. I've tried recreating her stuff and it doesn't turn out so well. :o)

The colors that you achieve blow me away...LOVE it!

Holy Crap Amy!! Seriously! Is there anything that you can't do? I can't believe that you and your friend made that. I would NEVER, EVER even attempt it. AND, they look PERFECT!!! You are seriously talented girl...

Amy L Cheng said...

Oh you guys are so nice.
Sadie...I probably will never sew a costume myself again. :)
Gina...Martha has brought me to tears MANY times. haha. My stuff normally doesn't turn out either... but by some miracle, it did this time. (and I think I only cried once...heh)
Kara...Thanks. The secret to the colors is the "blacks" in Lightroom.
Marisa...I can't take credit for the house. All Heather. She is actually a WORKING architect. I think 5 years in architecture school really helps with this stuff. haha. Who knew?
