Our annual pumpkin carving contest!

Friday we held our annual Pumpkin carving contest! (It had been so hot, we waited until Friday so they wouldn't rot!)

The winner gets bragging rights and choice of dinner at a local restaurant.

Here are the kids working on their designs....




and here are the entries......a WITCH:




Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde:






The Headless Horseman:




and a coffin:



Please REMEMBER TO VOTE in the comments! (Last year we had a tie.)

Now, I know you are wondering what we did with all those pumpkin seeds..can't let them go to waste, right?

We roasted them of course!

They were delicious!!!

I think the most original idea is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide, so my vote is for that pumpkin! :)

I have to go with the headless horseman. It looks like it took the most skill to make.

Also, I love the movie.
