My 1st Pumpkin Carving Experience!

I've always been interested in Fall. I think there's so many things to do! A lot of good food to eat since it's harvest season, and there's Halloween!

2 weeks ago, I experienced my first Turkey Shoot -- which is on my Youtube Channel, and then I went to Holiday World last Saturday (my first amusement park experience in the US).

Anyway, this post is about Pumpkin Carving, so here goes!!

I've never imagines that I would be able to have this experience, and I didn't expect it to be technical, to be honest. O_o It's a good thing my father-in-law was guiding me through it, and was helping so that my baby wouldn't go to where I was working because -- I have to use a saw! xD

I picked the pumpkin, with a good face. (They told me to have one in a bit of an angle so it would look good with a face on. xD)

The process:
My father-in-law, Bob, cuts the top off in an angle, so that it won't fall inside.
Also leaves a square cut so it won't move or swivel.
Who knew. xD

This is me gutting my pumpkin!!
It was a bit tiring, coz it was my first time. 

It took me 13 minutes to have a smooth inside.
Pumpkin fully gutted!

Then I chose a design and pinned the pattern down.
Onto the poking!
I used a pencil to poke the stencil!
16 minutes.

Now, onto the actual carving!
I used a small saw, from a carving kit, and I started cutting the design.
My father-in-law gave a lot of advice on how to make it easier to carve.
I did it for about 20 mins!
I'm a beginner.

This is the finished product!

Of course we had to test it, so we lit 2 candles inside of it and~~~

Do you know who this is?

I'll give you a hint:
He likes Christmas time! xD

Today's the DAY!

OMG. I have been waiting for so long to have a snack like this!
The only thing not ideal is me being at the park, under a tree.
(I can do that .. but I didn't know it'd be so cold for me during Autumn)

Yes, it's my first Autumn! The tree outside my house is FINALLY turning red!

Anyway, this blog is about ---

Finally, I can have my matcha latte and taiyaki <3

I know, it seems so childish, but I have not eaten Taiyaki until today! So I'm super excited! I love it! Every bit of it! And I also made the matcha latte by myself! :)

See you again for the next blog!
I promise I will write more!
