punkins.

I asbolutely love love love Halloween. It is one of my favorite holidays...right up there with Thanksgiving, 4th of July, and of course, Christmas. So basically, I love all the holidays. :)

Some things that get me super pumped about Halloween are costumes and pumpkin carving. Today, I shall focus on the pumpkin carving

Willy and I went to a quaint little pumpkin patch down the road from my house at a little church situation. There were tons of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes, and it was tough to make a choice. However, we eventually found our dream pumpkins...and of course as we were paying I had to throw in an extra dollar to snag this little guy...

He is just so precious...

At first I was struggling with what to carve on my pumpkin...Willy knew pretty quick what he wanted to do, and I am ashamed to admit I didn't come up with my idea as quickly as I should have. However, it came to me - Minnie Mouse. Sadly, there was no printer so we were forced to test our skills and relied on google to provide us with our images. From there, we sketched them onto some paper and went from there... 


And here is my little Minnie...

All lit up...with a bath and body works candle...

Willy is by far the most devout Seattle Supersonics fan in the world...this whole layout was pretty tricky - and he definitely was "too strong" for our cheap tools because by the end of the night they were all broken. 


Pumpkin carving is just so fun - despite the nasty pumpkin smell and all the slimey goop and seeds you have to dig out of the pumpkins... It is all soooo worth it when you turn out the lights and light up your pumpkins and see that they look this goooood babayyy...


Happy Halloween!
