The only rules are no pumpkin carving tools and no props may be used.


Let's get the carving party started! 
 
In the running we have Jack Skellington...

Hi Jess-I'm back from my break. What a fun contest. That mansion is pretty spectacular for not being able to use any pumpkin carving tools. They are ALL winners if you ask me- xo Diana

They are all so cute. The g.washington was clever. I am glad I am not the judge. Smiles to all, Susie

What a fun tradition! Haunted Mansion is my fave too. When my son is bigger, we will give a go to this carving fun although Halloween is not really celebrated here. Happy Halloween : )

I wanted to tell you that I scrolled down to the wedding pictures. You are a GORGEOUS family! You are ALL beautiful. I love the veil that was handed down from Mother to daughter-made by grandmother. What a special, special day- Imagine the beautiful little grandbabies you are going to be blessed with- xo Diana
