It’s almost October…let the fun begin! From October to January we celebrate! I wanted to plant a bug in your ear in case you’ve never done a Pumpkin Carving Party/Contest! Our family has been doing it for years…
This was our very first Pumpkin Carving Party/Contest in 2004!
Here we are last year!
We always take a family photo!
There are teams of two…and every team brings their own pumpkin, pattern and carving tools!
Through the years we’ve had some pretty fancy pumpkins…here are a few of them…
My family can be a little competitive…the mosaic below was from 2 years ago. (posted HERE) We vote on the pumpkins and when the face of Jesus didn’t win…I felt we’d reached a new low…
Last year I decided to take a break from carving pumpkins and have a chili cookoff…it was fun but everyone wanted to go back to pumpkin carving this year!
So on Saturday October 29 there will be a pumpkin carving throw-down at my house! I was thinking about posting pictures of all the pumpkins on facebook at around 2:30 and have all my peeps vote to find this year’s winner!
Would you help me find a 2011 Pumpkin Carving Champ for our fam!?
Let me know and friend me on facebook if we aren’t already buds so you can see the pics!
Also let me know if you decide to do a Pumpkin Carving Party for your family, or maybe you already do one! How do you find the winner?
Sending love to you~have a yummy autumn weekend!
(Unless you’re one of my buds from down-under~you guys have a yummy spring weekend!)
