    I wish I would have known it was your birthday, I know I need to get those DVD’s to you. I haven’t forgotten, I promise!

    Hope it is a great day, and a fabulous year πŸ™‚

  2. I love them… too funny!! At least you got some use out of them but are you sure they had actually finished growing? Excellent πŸ™‚

  3. Now pumpkin carving at that size is a delicate and demanding operatation so I am very impressed with your results. I intend to compete next year by carving a tomato. A cherry tomato.

  4. showed your before pic and your carved (after) pic to my girls and they both said,
    “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, how cute!”

    might start a new trend – instead of the world’s largest pumpkins – might have a whole tiny thing going.

  5. Cute Mini Jack o Lanterns and Happy Happy Happy Birthday, hope this is your best year yet!
    : )

  6. A little birdy told me that it was your birthday today..(okay, it was MizFit).

    Wishing you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY and year full of love, happiness, and good memories to last a lifetime.

    Oh — and DO have a piece of birthday cake to celebrate πŸ˜‰

  7. Happy birthday! Hope you had a lovely pumpkin filled birthday. The mini pumpkins look amazing – better than their grown up version by far!

  8. As we say in the Netherlands: ‘klein maar fijn’. (small but great/lovely/pleasant/good/nice, one of those hard to translate words, don’t get me started on ‘gezellig’!).

    Congratulations, I hope you had a nice day πŸ˜‰

  9. HAHAHA! I love the huge flame towering above the pumpkins! Did you use a Swiss Army knife to carve them? Very cute & Happy Birthday!

  10. I can’t tell you how happy it made me to see that you carved the tiny pumpkins. Totally awesome and fun.

    And I see from the comments above that you just had a birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope it was fabulous.

  11. OMG…happy bday Red!!!

    And the mini-o-lanterns are soooo cute! Miracle you could carve so intricately with out cutting off an appendage.


  12. Those are *wonderful*!!
    I didn’t carve so much as a tomato (although I’m tempted to carve the tomato tonight; it seems somehow appropriate).

  13. I’m a little late with birthday wishes but HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!!!

    These are THE CUTEST pumpkins ever!!!

  14. Hello Shauna from somewhat sunny California. I’m a new commenter, but a fan since last February when I happened upon your book in (I hate to say this), a bargain bin at a bookstore outside of Auckland (Devenport, I believe). Love your teensy pumpkins! Happy belated birthday.
