I Lost The Halloween Pumpkin Carving Party

I lost the Halloween pumpkin carving party that we attended on Friday – but I'm not bitter.  I did not go into debt to purchase the pumpkins.

My goal was to carve a "$" sign into the pumpkin.  Things were going great, until I chopped out the bottom section that was supporting the top section.   The end result?  A mangled pumpkin.  So I turned it around and came up with this creative carving.

Yes – I carved it upside down.  It is about the most creative I can get – after all, I am a degreed engineer.  If it isn't straight lines and symmetrical, I'm way out of my comfort zone!

My daughter's pumpkin came out nice!  Here is her pumpkin – no knives allowed just yet!

And here is Jenn's!

 The next picture is the pumpkin that won the contest.

And for your viewing pleasure, here are the other entries.

    Did anyone else notice that Joe’s pumpkin is the ugliest pumpkin in all the pictures? I mean, at least give it a snaggletooth.
