1ST Annual pumpkin carving contest!
Now that the kids are old enough not to cut their arms and legs off, we decided to start having an annual pumpkin carving contest for the family.
My sister and her family did this for years and it got ultra competitive with people hiding in corners and covering their pumpkin with towels only to REVEAL their masterpieces all at once.
I am sure ours will get that way....but for this first time out, it was more of a gathering event...and a whole lot of fun!
Here we are working over our poor pumpkins....pulling all their little guts out! We had a nice bowl of seeds saved but they got dirty so we ditched them.
And here are our masterpieces!
