Events: Pixar Themed Pumpkin Carving (2017)

Happy Halloween!! Today was a fantastic day full of tricks, treats and all sorts of classic family festivities. Hope you all had a fun and safe holiday as well!

Last night, my wife Brita and I continued our tradition of carving Pixar themed Jack-o'-lanterns. This is our fifth year in a row doing so! We started carving Pixar character pumpkins in 2013, the year I started this blog, and have done them every Halloween since. If you haven't yet, check out the ones we did in 2013, 2014 2015 and 2016. This year's designs were inspired by both of Pixar's theatrical releases— Cars 3 and Coco!

I did Lightning McQueen (that's about as complicated as it gets for me. I'm not a very good pumpkin carver, but I'm happy with how this one turned out) and Brita did an intricate Mexican sugar skull in celebration of Coco and the official beginning of Día de los Muertos today. This is for sure Brita's most complex and detailed carving yet and I'm always so impressed with how she takes her skills to the next level year after year. She loves the challenge!

I also have to give a shout out to my little Pixar buddy (my nephew Noah) for his adorable Sulley costume tonight! Here he is with my brother in-law Craig as the one and only Mike Wazowski.
