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!

mine.........Little Winky





Curly Girl's....Casper!




Ripstick Boy's.....Jackula




Dean's.....Cap'n Barbosa


BOO!

I love this. I think we'll have to wait a few years before we start this tradition but as soon as the girls are old enough I'm going to insist we do this.

My vote is for - Jackula!

Seems like a lot of fun! I must vote for Capn Barbosa though. He is kinda of scary.

So fun! I'm with ya...I've got to wait until my kids won't hurt themselves. In the meantime, we do one family pumpkin and the kids decide what we carve. We are doing ours tonight and it will be a spider. The last few years we have also painted pumpkins (much safer for younger ones) but I still have not done it with them yet. I'm running out of time.....
