This year, Emma decided to make her pumpkin into Gerald the Elephant from the Pig and Elephant series by Mo Willems. She specifically chose the book, "There's a Bird on My Head". He turned out pretty cute and he got to sit right next to a pumpkin decorated as Piggie and Pigeon in the library. While she was painting her pumpkin, Josh painted one as well. His pumpkin was a self-portrait complete with the red hair and wearing his church jacket.
