I know it was you, Fredo.

Well, Halloween has come and gone and today we had the results of the inaugural Pumpkin Carving Competition.  A total of seven entries were received, and every entry had its own brand of creativity and ingenuity.  Let’s take a look at the results.

First off the bat, Cheryl’s pumpkin.  A goofy addition but I believe it achieved the desired effect.  PS – what happened to the top of its head?Cheryl Pumpkin

Next in line is Chris H’s pumpkin, sitting by the fireplace.  A thoroughly creepy bug-eyed pumpkin, well done for what may very well be a first-attempt.

Next in line is Lee’s pumpkin, definitely one of the scarier additions inspired by the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas, and just look at that nose!
