Pumkin Carving Contest

As I mentioned before we had our annual Pumpkin Carving Contest last weekend, and it was the best yet!  This started 4 years ago on a random Saturday night in October, we were bored and my sister suggested that we have a contest.  There were only three pumpkins in the contest that day, and we had a blast!  We decided to keep the tradition up, since it has grown so much we decided to have it out at our office, because, there is plenty of space to spread out, and boy was it a good decision.  This year we had 15 pumpkins in the contest, and the competition was stiff!  These are not your ordinary carvings, we get really into it and everyone usually comes up with some really creative ideas.  My dad had a hayride for the kids, and we had some arts and crafts for them so they had a blast as well.  Here are some pictures from the night.

Now some after pictures





and the winner is.........


You can't really see the sign but it says "How pumpkin pies are made".  My brother in law and I have been partners since we started the contest and are very competitive.  After losing last year we started working on our idea right after the contest, and it paid off!

The little orange thing you can't really see is the grand prize.  It is a pumpkin and the team that wins signs the back, and keeps it until the contest next year. 

As a bonus here is our little pumpkin all ready for bed.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
