Show 'N Tell Tuesday: Our Pumpkin

SHOW:



TELL:
Mike and I carved our pumpkin Sunday Night and I just LOVE it!! I decided to do a "N" for Nabors! I can't take all the credit though . . . I just drew the N and then Mike carved it. We have not carved a pumpkin in the past. I grew up always going on a picnic in the Fall with my parents and brother every year and my Dad would carve one, but since Mike and I have been together, we have never carved one ourselves. We've always bought several pumpkins and put them on our porch or inside for decoration - but never carved one. He said he had only carved a pumpkin once or twice before in his life - so for not having carved many, I think he did an AWESOME job!!! I just love it!!! I think I will make this a tradition and we will do a "N" pumpkin every year. Then when we have kids we'll do a fun one with a face of course too - but this could be my pretty pumpkin. It really helped me complete our kitchen table too. I love coming home at night and lighting a candle in the pumpkin, it looks so pretty!

Oh and I found my Bittersweet berry wreath and put it outside on our patio door. I love this wreath because it's great for Fall and then is also a good transition wreath getting into Christmas. I'm not as big on wreaths as I used to be, but I love this one. So that's our carved pumpkin and wreath. I posted about some of our other Fall decorations a while back. Since then I have made a few changes, not many. But now that our pumpkin is done and I just found my wreath that was tucked away in a box from moving - I feel like I've got all I want out for Fall. Now before I know it, it will be time to put it all away and get Christmas stuff out! But I'm going to enjoy my Fall stuff till Thanksgiving!

I love your pumpkin. I have been meaning to get some and paint monograms on them, but haven't got the chance. I'm such a slacker :).
