13th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest and #Giveaway (x2)

Posted October 23, 2017 by Prairie Wife - 17 comments

Well it’s that time of year again…our annual Pumpkin Carving contest and, holy cow was it a tough one!

Weeks ago we had planned the theme of “Self Portraits” but, on the night of our carving, The Cowboy decided this theme wouldn’t work for our anonymous voting.

So, we each picked a theme idea, wrote them on pieces of paper, and put them in a bucket.

The winner was DRAGONS…

To make things even more difficult The Cowboy said we had to do it “old school” and not look up any pictures online or even use books to help us.

Cowboy J is now in the double digits and per family rules is allowed to participate in the contest…good luck figuring out what one is his, he was AMAZING!

We had a wonderful family night with carving and painting our pumpkins! It looks like we need to get Zip the Wonder Dog one next year.
