Everyone hail to Jack Shellington the Pumpkin King!
🎶 How many songs can you spot in the captions?
Happy National Pumpkin Day! 🎃🐢 I claim ALL the pumpkin for my belly!!
Bonus GRUMP outtakes where I tried to get Mom to handfeed me my pumpkin treat:
Excuse me, where are my noms?!
I don’t care how cute my jack-o-lantern basket is, how dare you make me stretch for my treat?!
My pumpkin keeps moving. Hold it for me, Mom!
EDIT: Watch the video here! 🎥
Good morn—EXCUSE ME, why is this the same water that was in my water dish yesterday? Change this water RIGHT NOW, Mom!
I AM KING KIRBY, HEAR ME ROAR!!
Tumblr would only let Mom upload a blurry version of my gif. (1 MB limit?!) You can see the much nicer version here, at the end of Mom’s blog post. Mommy also posted on her blog the full video that the gif is made from.
This was all very exciting for my first autumn! I can’t wait to play in the leaves again next year!
Happy equinox (right on the dot!) with a flashback to my very first fall, five years ago!
Shiver me timbers, I know just where th’ noms be hidin’! No shiny navigator can fool Pirate Cap’n Kirby. Th’ shiny whatsit be nay navigator—th’ shiny be th’ noms!
At last, th’ best o’ th’ booty from ye scurvy landlubbers!

Nommin’ be serious business!
Radicchio be th’ finest booty I ever did nom!
Th’ Pirate Cap’n Kirby be grand pleased! Brin’ me more radicchio, ye scurvy dog!
The biggest surprise in my amazing birthday box from @anne-fine came in its own (delicious) package: A personalized stamp showing me with Mom! @anne-fine had our stamp specially carved by a female artisan in Japan! The stamp includes my name, and stamp me is even wearing a dapper hat! Plus, stamp Mom has lots of her favorite crafting medium: yarn! We love our new stamp so much!!
@anne-fine included in my birthday box two samples of my stamp and sent us an excellent demo video showing how to superimpose different colors on top of the ink. To top it off, @anne-fine sent us an ink pad and special aqueous markers to paint our personalized stamp—including a radicchio-colored marker!
All of our lovely stamp materials were wrapped in a 100% cotton bag that I sniffed and booped all over!
Mom, this pin turtle has a crown. Why don’t I have a crown?!
So many pretty colors!
This shimmery ink pad looks delicious, too…
I refuse to acknowledge that cuttlebone on my plate. Bring me REAL noms, Mom!
