Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater

So, I didn't carve our pumpkin this year. We usually have a pumpkin carving contest at work, and after that got nixed this year, I just wasn't in the mood. Apparently, someone was though:

We couldn't figure out what could have possibly done this, but when Rocco started barking at the window yesterday, I saw the culprit:

It was hard to get a picture without Rock's big head in it, but I managed one:

I guess there's slim pickings out there for food this year, so we bought a new bag of bird seed for the poor little critters. They supply such great entertainment for my boy; I have to keep them happy!

Is that a squirrel or a rat??

AhA! So you're the one telling them it's okay to eat the birdfood!!! Nooooooo! Don't feed them the good stuff! They're just gonna eat your pumpkins anyway!!!

Tee, hee! We've had squirrel damage on our jack-o-lanterns before, too : ) What else can we expect, leaving perfectly good vegies sitting outside!

Too funny! We didn't carve any pumpkins this year either! Did you see the "extreme pumpkins" at Keana's blog (meowfish pie knits)?

So cute!! I was thinking maybe it was raccoons because someone I used to work with complained every year about the raccoons eating the pumpkins off of her deck. I had no idea squirrels liked them too! I think you got a pretty good photo of the little guy :)
