5th annual Pumpkin Carving Contest

Okay so here are a whole lot of pictures from the Pumpkin Carving Contest at Matt and Margaret's house.  As I mentioned it was SO much fun.  Funny thing is when they started this tradition we were all childless and now it is overrun by our kids, and so much fun!  I love seeing the costumes that everyone picks for their kids.  We had a fireman, a Steeler, a Daisy, a Cupcake, Scary Skateboarder, a UNC cheerleader, Yoda,  a Pirate, and a Gangster.  Quite a variety!
THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL PARTY!









So the Swann Family was not going to participate in the carving contest.  One set of Swanns did not even bring a pumpkin (Becky and Jeremiah, not to name any names), the other set of Swanns might have been called some names on my part to get them to play.  My heckling worked though and they carved a pumpkin, even though Niki gave Nick something that amounted to a sharpened paper clip to carve their pumpkin.   




THE WINNING PUMPKIN!!!!  
FINALLY!

Sounds like a lot of fun! I have seen post on this party before and it always looks like lots and lots of fun! Congrats again on winning!

Love all those pictures of those cute BMT kiddos!!

I'm glad you called Becky out too! Shame on her for not bringing a pumpkin to carve and a pumpking carving party!! ha!

Niki said...

It really is like a magazine ad! Those two little beauties look like they should be advertising Crewcuts or the BabyGap.
Yes, you did verbally abuse this Swann family (losers, I think we were called) but for the record, I wanted that pumpkin carved too. Obviously, I mean, I didn't want the first-class carving knife to go to waste.
Nice job on the winning pumpkin! And on the gorgeous pictures. I'm so glad you brought the camera!

Becky, as senior advisor to Mrs.Grant, I must apologize for her rash behavior. I would friend you on Facebook (that is if I was on FB). Anyway, it is plain to see that Bill should have won for his extremely creative representation of Charlie Brown.
