Fall Fun


One of my favorite fall memories as a child was doing pumpkin carvings. Carving pumpkins is always looked at as a way of celebrating halloween by putting scary faces and such on it. But it doesn't HAVE to be that way. You can carve whatever you want onto a pumpkins! And in my opinion... they look much better without the faces. :) It came to my attention that my husband had never carved a pumpkin before, since it has always a favorite memory of mine, I wanted to share it with my favorite person! :)

Our first pumpkin we made said "Huskers."




Finished Husker pumpkins! 
We had so much fun doing the first pumpkin... we decided to do 2 more! :)

All ready to be traced! 
Andrew was a pro by the time we got to the last pumpkin! 
Tracing the design
Our handy dandy carving tools! 
After Andrew traced it, I cut it out...
...while he moved on to the next pumpkin! Since we did a husker pumpkin, we thought it was only appropriate to do a Gator one as well. :)
We did this one a little differently, because it it was so detailed, and it would be hard to get it to stay together cut out.

We traced it completely with a knife so that we could take off the top layer.


Finished! :)

That night we put a candle in it. Turned out pretty sweet, huh??! :)
Happy Fall Y'all! :)

The pumpkins looked really neat when they had a candle in them.
