Pumpkin Fever!

Daddy came home with some pumpkins so I had to check them for quality and size.

i suppose these will do

The plan is that mummy and daddy are going to help me carve one each. Once finished, I get to decide the best one to enter in Sammy’s pumpkin carving contest!

The thing is in the whole time mummy and daddy have been together daddy has NEVER carved a pumpkin. Mummy on the other hand does one every year. She was very proud of her (rather basic) Jack Skellington pumpkin:

Mummy’s Jack Skellington pumpkin from last year

Until she saw this online:

NOT mummy’s pumpkin

So she really needs to up her game this time!! But most of all I hope they both manage to keep all their fingers!

In the meantime, don’t forget to enter mine and Mollie‘s Halloween costume contest! You have till the 28th to submit a photo. Your costume can be real orΒ  photoshopped.

You can catch up on the details here

Can’t wait to see your entries!

  1. Yes, we’ve seen some pumpkin carving that means we’ve retired from the field! Good luck M&D and do be careful πŸ˜‰

  2. We love the ET carving, but I think you probably need to carve for a lot of Halloweens before you can do one that good!

  3. Sweet Baby Jesus, I need to carve something nice otherwise I’ll lose this one too.

  4. Misaki we will have our entires ready today. I will send them to Mollie and ask her to pass them on. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. We think your mummy’s Jack Skellington pumpkin is pretty darn nice…that E.T. pumpkin…whoa baby! Hope you get to eat some pumpkin treats.

  7. Oh Misaki your Daddy picked out some lovely pumpkins for your parents to decorate! I love your Mom’s pumpkin from last year and that ET one is amazing…..if my Daddy tried to do THAT, I’m sure he would have said some language that would be unrepeatable and perhaps lost a finger or two! I’ve sent my costume contest entry in to Miss Mollie and can’t WAIT to see the “winning pumpkin” at your house that is entered in my pumpkin decorating contest…..Halloween is such FUN!

  8. Too bad your parents can’t take carving lessons from the guy across the hall from me. He makes a scary freak-head pumpkin every year. It’s not out there, yet. So far, so good. Maybe he’ll keep it inside this time.

    Love and licks and shivers,

  9. Our Lady doesn’t like carving them so she has gotten some from Michael’s that are fake and carved them once and keep them forever. Hope you got to help carve. Hailey and Zaphod

    There are some ruper cool carved pumpkins out there. Mom gave up on carving – usually carved herself more than the pumpkins and it was a bloody mess. Now if anything we paint them. Good luck πŸ˜‰

  11. Clowie says:

    I think you’ll need to supervise them very carefully!

  12. at least you pumpkins look like pumpkins… I ‘ve got only a monster ;o)

  13. cafall says:

    Mom draws on her pumpkins – she isn’t very good with a knife!


  14. p.m.terrell says:

    Wow, that is an amazing ET! I wonder how long it would take to create something like that? Of course, skill is needed of which I have none… πŸ™‚

  15. Kyla says:

    Misaki, do your own and show us.

  16. Looks like you did a fine pumpkin inspection job!

  17. Fluffy Tufts says:

    I love your Mummy’s Jack Skellington pumpkin. ET is good, but not very Halloween-y! πŸ™‚

  18. We think you did a mighty fine job!
    Oink oink,

  19. Hey Misaki, Jet here.

    Mom bought a pumpkin for us about 3 weeks ago. We do not carve them for some reason, she likes to look at them whole! When she was young, my human grandpa and Mom painted them!

  20. rubytheairedale says:

    Your Moms does a great job there on the pumpkins Misaki!
    Ma tried to carve one one year….nearly had to call her ‘lefty’, if you know what I mean!



  21. Kia says:

    I like your mom’s pumpkin! That ET is pretty awesome though. Good luck to your pawrents and their carving πŸ™‚

  22. goldenwoofs says:

    Woof! Woof! Looks like a good size. Cooking or Carving a big decision to make. Happy Wednesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  23. You Mom’s pumpkin looks pretty pawsome to me! I hope they let you help this year…maybe they could carve a pumpkin to look like a Misaki.

  24. catchatcaren says:

    LOVE that ET pumpkin!!! Mom isn’t very good at carving pumpkins AT ALL! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  25. Zena says:

    We don’t do the pumpkin/halloween thing, but……. just for you two Mollie & Misaki, I have bullied The Producer into getting an app to make a scary picture of Raffles πŸ™‚ Ha!
