Chadds Ford Great Pumpkin Carve 2010


The view of the pumpkin patch from our pumpkin.
We had pumpkin #8 and it was our 8th year of carving here.

My crazy mom and I.
She loves to paint her face like a pumpkin.

I'm starting to carve, working on the full moon.

The finished design, a barn owl and raven.
We won People's Choice, a first!

My daughter Zoe admiring our carving.


The crowd view from the back of our pumpkin.

Screaming skulls.

Christine O'Donnell is a witch... hahahaha!

Skulls and snakes were popular this year.

What a great idea!
I would not have the guts to carve up a pumpkin like that.

Loved this Sleepy Beauty themed dragon pumpkin.
