If you’ve been a reader for a little while, you might know that Sean and I compete every year in our annual pumpkin carving competition. There are two competitors: Sean and me. And there are two judges: Sean and me. So it’s not really a competition per se, but we both treat it like one. This year I stalked Pinterest hoping for something creative but easy enough to do. I found some really beautiful ideas, but some of them were a little too intricate for me. I’ve learned that I don’t have the patience (or skill) to do those things, though I’m always tempted. So, instead I opted for something pretty traditional, but a little vamped up.
Sean on the other hand had to rethink his whole original idea. Why you ask? Well, because his original idea was related to the Texas Rangers and after they lost this past weekend, he didn’t want to think about the Rangers at all. Actually, we’re still not talking about them at my house.
So here are our pumpkins:
Can you guess who each belongs to? Mine is the awesome one with terrifying teeth, while Sean’s is the one crying over the Rangers’ loss. We decided that we both did a great job this year and that we were both winners (honestly, Sean couldn’t handle another loss even if mine was better). As a bonus and because there are a lot of baby thoughts at our house, we decided to make a little pumpkin to0:
I wanted fangs instead, but trying to find them a couple of days before Halloween is impossible, apparently.
Do you all carve pumpkins?
