Purty Pumpkin Pickin'

Happy Friday all!

Yesterday we went and picked out our gourd. This was our first trip to a patch and so of course I had to get photos!
Sea of pumpkins

Wart-y pumpkins. Kinda gross

Dead pumpkins? They are actually supposed to be this color. Ugly. But very ghoul-ish.
"Farmer John"

But no farmer John's wife. Someone had to take the photo!

Then I finally asked the salesman to take our pic :) Please excuse the white pumpkin in the background that was at just the right spot to make me look like I have an Mennonite cap on. Lol. 

Our choice. One for mom and dad and 4 little ones for our fur children
Then we brought it home to carve
The inspiration for this year's design

An Ernie pumpkin!

I thought about getting 3 more after Halloween and doing all the dogs. Not after this! They take a while to carve. Thankfully John did 80% of it. What an artist!

He was terrified to be next to it. Lol.

On display.

All lit up

And I just had to leave off with a group shot of the canine members of the White household. Notice Eby the loner in the back 
I'm so glad the holidays are on their way! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  1. The pumpkin looks fabulous! I know it must have been a lot of work. One of my kids happened to be sitting by me and saw it and loved it, too!!! (Hope they don't want us to do one of our dog!?)


Feel free to show some love and ask questions!
