Last night we had our 4th Annual Pumpkin Carving Party—which this year perfectly coincided with my birthday. We had a bunch of friends over to knife into some orange gourds. Here you see us setting them up.
Hit the lights!
I'm really happy with the variety this year from some very talented folks.
Another assembling of the freakish lot. And now for some close-ups...
Pumpkins by Matt Boehm and Ellen Crenshaw.
A beautiful skeleton with a flower in her hair, by Tami Wicinas.
A stoic looking dude, by Dan Brennan.
This crazy character is by Hannah O'Neal. Great teeth!
A friendly feline by Heeby Jeeby's Dan Moynihan.
Two great pumpkins by my wife, Loren Lee, and Liz Chrastil.
And my contribution!
These are the 4 pumpkins that have been selected for this year's aging process. You may remember this evil soul:
Here are his mummified remains, a year later. He's a keeper!(recall this post from last year: The Story of 3 Pumpkins)
Thanks again to everyone for coming out!
