2nd Annual Pumpkin Carving & Decorating Contest

Once we picked our perfect pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch, we headed to our house to get ready for our Pumpkin Carving Party! (hence the same clothes as last post LOL)

Last year we had a pumpkin carving contest, and we had so much fun we decided to make it a tradition.

Everyone brought a dish. Our friend Pearlie made these super cute ghose brownies. They were so good – just ask Harley to took the last 4 :/

Before we started carving, we let the kids paint their own pumpkins they brought. Everyone brought a little pumpkin, and I bought finger paint and sponge brushes for the kids to decorate. I put down some cardboard boxes on the grass and let the kids go! They had a BLAST.

Now that the kids were done, it was time for the adults to have some fun. Let the carving contest begin!

Addison Kate is the oldest of the kids, so she decided that she would carve a pumpkin all on her own. She did awesome.

Seth and I were so proud of our pumpkin – little ET. Maybe I’m a little biased, but I believe he was the cutest :)

So what’s a contest without any judges? My mom and dad (and friends) stayed away until everyone was finished so they could judge the cutest pumpkin, the most original, and the overall winner.
