I’m really into holiday traditions. I’m not sure if it’s the nostalgia of years past or just an all around general enjoyment, but there always has to be a carved pumpkin on Halloween, sweet potatoes with marshmallows on Thanksgiving, and a big tree with all the ornaments that I’ve collected over the years on Christmas. I’m excited to continue my family’s traditions, as well as make new ones with Will.
We went to a local pumpkin patch a couple weeks ago before our Nola trip to get our pumpkin. I just got around to carving it last night, which reminded me that I should probably post these photos. Better late than never has become my adopted motto. I didn’t have the best tools so I ended up using a huge knife from my kitchen, which wasn’t the easiest thing to maneuver. I think he came out pretty well. I’ve named him Mr. Jack O’ Lantern Jr. I’ve named all my pumpkins that since I can remember and I’ve lost count on if he’s the 19th, 20th, or older. It’s that whole tradition thing.
