Pumpkin Carving Contest

Smitty and I have taught a Sunday School/Adult Bible Fellowship class of married couples between the ages of 30 to 40+ for several years. It has been our goal to have a monthly fellowship in someone's home. We recently met for our 2nd annual pumpkin carving contest in the home of a couple in Alvarado. We began the evening with a delcious fare of chili frito pie and then retired to the patio to begin the pumpkin carving extravaganza. These younger couples take pumpkin carving very seriously and the competition was very stiff. After having just returned from our fall foliage trip, we were inspired to venture from the traditional halloween- themed pumpkin as evidenced by the pictures below. I good time of food, fellowship, and friendly competition was had by all.

Our carving took 3rd place. The scary cat and strobe light just couldn't be beat.

Cool looking even in the dark!!

I love the carving! There were some unique pumpkin pictures in the Star-Telegram this weekend, and I think yours is as good as theirs!
