I doubt many of you remember last year's contest, but no worries. Rest assured, it took place. And now, bless all our good fortunes, it's come around again. Last week we had the McGhie's 2nd Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. Year one featured hanging bats, haunted houses, spiders, men in mirrors and the never-forgotten Curious George pumpkin.
Year two everyone decided to take it to the next level. In our earlier post of the Big Red Barn, Steff alluded to the fact that it was a fun night out with some good friends at a pumpkin patch. Mostly true. Mostly it was a trip to find the perfect pumpkin for the 2nd Annual... and it worked. So, let's not fool ourselves folks. We found el pumpkinos supremo. And it was game on for the competition... and the McGhie's were bringin' it.
At the end of the competition, we couldn't really determine a winner, as is mostly the case. We all had a good time and came out with some pretty awesome pumpkins to show off for the neighbors.
Next year, we're going to get serious... again. You all just wait. You'll see...
Here are close-ups of our pumpkins in case anyone cares (as I look down dejectedly and kick a pebble with my shoe)...
