Hoo's excited for Halloween?

This summer (like every summer), we had big plans for growing our own pumpkins in our backyard vegetable garden. Mother Nature and Mr. Groundhog had other ideas and we were left with only two pumpkins. 
Although Chris is the master pumpkin carver, I'm the glue gun painter pumpkin designer when it comes to Josie's school pumpkin contest.
This year, she decided she wanted to create an Owl for her school's pumpkin contest.
We used lots of straight pins to hold our felt feathers into place.
Mr. Owl is now happy to be visiting Josie's school library.  Happy "almost" Halloween!

That owl is darling, Kim. I can't believe how cute Josie is-I think she gets cuter by the day!

If there is a judged contest at school I bet the OWL wins!!! xo Diana

I am so loving owls this year...and last...and the year before. They are so cute and wise. Your daughter's pumpkin owl is a winner to be sure.

It's so cute! Great job on the owl. Our pumpkins grew in the compost pile which is one foot from the groundhog den. They had a field day chewing on every single large pumpkin we had :(

Happy Almost Halloween to you!
It's been a LONG, LONG, time since I've done any blog visiting. Life is crazy, busy these days.
I know you are enjoying this month of October getting ready for Halloween!

Great job Josie and you did! How fun they are displayed in the library too.

I bet you are still recuperating from your party. Happy Halloween!
