 "I am NOT a pumpkin! I am TRASH!"

Hey everyone—hope you all had a happy and festive Halloween! 🎃 I'm back for the seventh year in a row with my annual Pixar pumpkin carving post. Just when you thought I forgot...the tradition continues! Since I try to theme my carving to correspond with the Pixar film of the year, Toy Story 4 was my natural go-to this time around; and Forky seemed like the perfect character to try and tackle! Luckily I found an awesome stencil online that I was able to print off (download HERE) with a design that is spot on for Halloween (love his frightened expression).

If you're new here, be sure to check out my previous carving posts from 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. It's been a ride!

Once again, my wife Brita usually carves one every year as well, but unfortunately she couldn't find the time to make one happen this year due to her work schedule. Bummer! She's really good at it too. Anyway, here are my pics documenting the process this time around from start to completion. It was tons of fun carving with all my family at my sister's home a few nights ago. They hosted a fun and festive get together.

This is the first time ever that I've utilized the scraping technique. Since I'm usually pretty awful at carving jack-o-lanterns in general (I'll admit), I was pretty proud of myself for doing this. I was nervous and didn't want to mess up, but I did it—and pretty accurately! I feel like I've been improving each year as I've pushed myself to try more complex designs. This one took me a full three hours.

Lastly, I always have to show off our Halloween costumes as well—so here we are last night as construction workers! You know, since our baby is under construction. I love my wife's "Bump Ahead" shirt; thought that was super clever. By the way, only 34 days until the due date! We are SOOO excited for his arrival.
