Taking Carving To A Whole New Level

Today me, Ed, my brother and my three nephews had a pumpkin carving contest. The teams are as follows:

Team Jigsaw: My brother and my nephew Jake
Team Dagger: Ed and my nephew Nicolas
Team Ginsu: Me and my nephew Joey

I will not reveal which pumpkin belongs to which team (yet), but I'd like you to vote on the pumpkin you like the best. If you voted on Facebook, please don't vote again here. If you'd like to come out of the woodwork and vote, I'd appreciate it. Additional comments regarding the pumpkins are welcome too!

I posted the two pictures so you can see the pumpkins in the light and also in the dark, only lit by candles. Please vote according to the order the pumpkins are in, from left to right.

umpkin A, Pumpkin B or Pumpkin C

You have until 5pm mountain time on Monday to vote (that's 5pm on the west coast, 7pm in the central time zone and 8pm on the east coast)

I thank you on behalf of the pumpkins and the teams!

Cool Pumpkins!
My favorite one is "C" which doesn't mean it is the best pumpkin - just my favorite.

Ooh this is hard. Really hard. So hard I may just vote three times, the other two under an assumed name...joking of course.

I pick #3. Love the 'stache.

Michelle | Bleeding Espresso said...

Erm, that's C. Duh.

Sean Jennings said...

OMG Pumpkin C kicks butt, so much detail.Good luck to all the teams.You should have a pumpkin pie contest from the contents of pumpkin A,B, and C!!

Although I think ALL of them are excellent, I vote officially for "A" - I think it's very witty with the way it glows when it's lit. Plus I like how the carved out pumpkin was re-used for the UFO letters. Love you! Jules xoxo Kisses to you all!

This is hard. I'm sort of a pumpkin purist, so I like B. Its the closest one (IMO) to a jack-o-lantern: eyes, nose, mouth - done. I guess C has is sort of jack-o-lanternish too and has lots of awesome detail. That said, Pumpkin A looks totally cool when its all lit up though and I was drawn to that one first so my vote is for A.

Now I'm totally trying to fiture out which team made which pumpkin.

OK-My daughter, Emily, likes pumpkin "A"-I like pumpkin "c"-and I will ask the rest of the family when they come inside from throwing acorns. They are all awesome!

I like C, Frank

"C" is pretty darn fancy, and "B" looks good in the dark, but, I'm goin' with "A" for originality and understated awesomeness.

Brother Bill, the Nominally Silent Reclusian, from the Hermitage on Hunter's Hill in Paluxy, TX, home of "Paluxy Pete", the Official State Dinosaur of Texas! woot.

I think C is going to win, so I'm going with A to try and even the score.

Fandango Travelers said...

I am voting for A - I really like all three, but A looks really cool in the dark.

Unknown said...

Well, I have to go for "C". but "A" seems to be most original.
And then there's "B". hmmmm
I vote for "A" and that's my final answer.

Ed's and Bill's mom

I love to carve pumpkins, wish I was there! I like to boil and then roast the seeds while carving out and decorating pumpkins!

MY vote for most creative:
pumpkin C3
My vote for most scary:
pumpkin B2
My vote for most futuristic:
pumpkin A1

Who's making the pumpkin pie?

I think Pumpkin B is so cute in the dark picture (can't see the blood), but Pumpkin C is my vote due to the amount of detail in it...LB

Carving pumpkins is not an easy job! I think they are all great but my vote goes to "C" for the complex cuts. Glad to see you are all working together as a team:) Love you all! Hugs and Kisses to the boys from Cousin Renee and again Great Job!

LOVE the creativity and detail on A and C, but pumpkin B screams Halloween. (I think that's Salena and Joe's.)
Wish I was there with you guys!
Love, Big Girl Cousin Dean

Gil said...

I voted "B", I guess I must have been on FB.

The Daily Rant said...
