Pumpkin Carving Contest 2013

Thank you for joining us for our 7th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest! 

If you'd like to catch up on last year's contest, please follow this link.


Sheri and my dad are the judges, and the only rules are: no pumpkin carving tools or props may be used.


The participants are:

Sweet Pumpkin,



Grinny,



Pumpkin Fairy, 



and Too Much Candy



The judges were busy in the judging room for quite a while leaving us on our toes about who would take the traditional glitter pumpkin prize...


And the winning jack-o-lantern of the 7th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest is...


(oh the suspense!) 


GRINNY!



Congrats to Grinny and all the participants. 


Until next year, pumpkin carvers!

I love the Fairy!

All the others are amazing - the Too Much Candy (is there such thing?!?! please...) is such a guy's thing that I had to laugh.
Next year make smaller glitter pumpkins, Sheri and Luchiest-Man-On-Earth, they all deserve to be awarded.

Really Love that Fairy. Might not speak with Sheri again unless she tells me it came on second runner up ahahahahah

Crazy Bunch! That's what you are. Crazy and Blessed with Fun and Love.

Enjoy!!!

Dearest Sheri,

Thank you dear and devoted friend, for coming to visit my post once again! I am so tired and busy with school that I can't figure out what to do for a blog post. I feel as I've run out of inspiration. But what keeps me going is ALL OF YOU. Thank you for hanging in there with me; I need to post at least by SUNDAY, so come back then! LOVE! Anita

Pumpkin too much candy is my favourite of them all. What a delight to carve those pumpkins. I would like to do it here in OZ but Pumpkins this kind is so pricey here.

Enjoy autumn and Halloween. Looking forward to seeing more.

Tulla and Catie said...

Funny idea and results that earned their price! Have fun!

What a fun post and Grinny was a worthy winner although I did like the Pumpkin fairy too. Family traditions like your competition are so important.
