It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

Our electricity went out for a good 4 or 5 hours today, so boyfriend and I had to decide on something to do without it. Usually since we lay around and watch 24 all day, it was a little difficult. My mom's been bugging us lately about carving the pumpkin she bought, so we decided to go for it!

He and I both are extremely addicted to Angry Birds so when we found this amazing blog (with the templates), it was a a no brainer! Since I have been pumpkin-carving-deprived for most of my life, we decided on the red bird so we wouldn't have to do any shaving around the eyes.

This is the beautiful pumpkin chosen for us. That's about as far as I could get with the knife.

As you can see here, boyfriend had to finish up the carving.

Here's all the insides! Thankfully since the pumpkin was a little older, the guts weren't too mushy. We're planning on toasting those seeds tomorrow. I wish our electricity would have let us today!

There's me pretending to cut for the sake of the picture. Pay no mind to my wild hair and pajamas.

And here's the finished product!
Sorry for the horrible quality of the last picture, but I wanted you to be able to see the detail at night.

P.S. On a completely unrelated note, I started listening to Christmas music today as well.


  1. Fun! We're going to carve a pumpkin this weekend, but I have no idea how we'll carve it. Haha! I'm looking forward to it though. Yours is cute!

  2. hi! thanks for your comment. I was actually just thinking that I was starting to overuse all those instagrams but I just can't get enough!
