Ye of little faith, Behold.....The Pug-kin!

So there's one thing the momma just can't resist.......a Challenge!     She can't stand hearing "That can't be done"   and especially   "....can't be done by her........ which is about a million times worse!

So she got her pumpkin on, and got her tools ready:

There were lots of pumpkin guts:

But her trusty assistant #2 was there to lend a hand:

And after LOTS of scraping and marking and carving, the pumpkin began to take shape:

Using her surgical skill (and tools) it was finally done!

And then it was time for the photo shoot:

(This fine photo could not have been taken without the help of #3, thanks, cupcake!)

Who said it couldn't be done?

That is a BEEEYOUTIFUL pugkin!!! Mom is totally impressed and you inspired her to do her own handiwork. Stay tuned!


Pee.S. Mom says she loves every song that you have on your playlist!

Wow! This is amazing...we think your Mom and her assistant did a great job. Our Mom can barely carve a regular face on a pumpkin. We love your pug'kin!

OMD that is too kewl! Mommie wants to try carving some pumerkins this Halloween! Any recomendations on pumpkin carving tools...they ones in the supermarket seem flimsy and cheap! We love your pumpkin pug!

Oh how fantastic! Was it very hard to do? I really was thinking of doing that this year. I still have my old tools, somewhere, I think. I really miss my scalpel.

I can't wait to see it all lit up. Be sure you take a pic and show us.

WOOWWWW that's AMAZING! I've never brought a pumpkin and much less carved one! you got it perfect!

BRUTUS said...

Whoa!! That is fantastic! What skill and patience you momma must have to carve your likeness into a pumpkin! We haven't even gotten a pumpkin yet, but if we even manage to carve a toothy grin into it, that'll be something!!
