Please tell me you know who this is supposed to be....

We decided to paint pumpkins this year since carving can be so difficult and the kids are NOT interested at all. This is obviously, a cat:


But do you know who this is? (I've given two different perspectives.)




If you don't know, it's supposed to be June from Disney's Little Einsteins but Jason didn't know when I showed him. Of course, he said he doesn't keep up with those characters anyway. I'm just worried b/c I wasn't even close to finished when the kids went to bed and wanted to surprise them in the morning with my final creations and I really hope Caroline figures it out right away. (I'll update to tell you the result.)


So while I started working on painting the big pumpkins, the kids worked on painting the little ones. But not just ANY little ones - the little ones that came from OUR garden! :) I was so proud, we managed to get 2 small pumpkins this year after having no luck last year. So while not big enough to carve, big enough to call pumpkins and decorate. The kids enjoyed painting them and didn't miss the carving part at all. In fact, I have a feeling Caroline would still have been a little freaked out by it given her congenital fear of pumpkins. (She was deathly afraid at not quite a year old, a little scared at almost 2, and freaked when I carved them last year although she wasn't afraid when I was done.)

we don't watch that show, so I didn't know, but I think it looks really good.

I can't tell you for sure since I read your later post first and I knew before I saw the pic, but I'm fairly certain I would have pegged it. YOu did a great job!!! I love the cat, too- I don't think I would have ever thought to paint the entire pumpkin- great idea!
