Great Pumpkin Carve


Despite the cold, rain and wind, my Mom and I had fun working on our pumpkin at The Chadds Ford Great Pumpkin Carve.  2011 marks our 9th year at this fabulous event and I'm so excited to write that my design won the award for Most Halloween!



Lighting the pumpkin...


My Mom likes to paint her face and hair like a pumpkin:)


The inside is neat...

Some of the other pumpkins. My favorite was the barn owl but I really like Totaro too. 
To be eligible for judging, you can't add anything to your pumpkin though. 





Happy Halloween!
