This year's pumpkin!

May I present El Senor Pumpkin con un sombrero. This year I decided to try and paint our jack'o'lantern, since my carved pumpkins never turn out as cool as I hope for. He's kind of sugar skull/day of the dead inspired.... I wanted him to be nice and colorful :)
I made this hat a little while ago, and didn't have a use for it, but hey! It was the perfect size for the pumpkin. I tied on some scraps and ribbon and novelty yarn, and some colorful feathers for good measure.
I hope everyone has a happy happy halloween this year!

Oh! And thanks for all the love, to you guys who have been leaving such sweet comments. One of Bobby's friends from work told him about an excellent sports injury/orthopedic office where he got disc replacement surgery. He was really happy with the doctors and all, so hopefully I can get an appointment soon to see if there's some sort of procedure that can help me out... And a doctor that won't tell me I'm "too young" for surgery! I'll keep you posted.
