Pumpkin Palooza

We joined some other families in the ward for a Pumpkin Palooza ... although the violence was a little disturbing. There were knives
and guts
and crazy looking people hacking away...
and tattooing
Who says Family Home Evening can't be fun??
Above the girls are "christening" the pumpkin Jasper (as in Twilight (gak!))

Everyone got in on the fun...
The artists at work
The final product

The Bryan's went "old school" with the triangle eyes and nose etc. (on the left)
Betcha can't guess who wanted the vampire pumpkin While our friends were MUCH more creative (above right and below)

Very fun night! Thanks Birnels!

Have YOU carved your pumpkin yet? Do you use stencils? Paint? Dress them up? Put stickers on? go "old school"? or something else??

thanks for coming! i love how you make it look so gorey (sp?) and violent, hard to believe there were little kiddos running around. ha ha ha.

Cool! Jeromy does the carving in our family, with "help" from the kids, of course. He uses stencils sometimes, but usually he just makes a cool face.

We're having a little Halloween party (for kids) next week, and we want to paint little pumpkins. Do you know what's the best kind of paint to use for that? Let me know if you do!

What a fun pumpkin carving party! I love the vampire pumpkin :) What a fun night. We'll probably do that next week for FHE, if we do it too far beforehand our pumpkins will start growing mold.... ewww!

It looks like it was a very fun activity. Halloween is like Thanksgiving holidays for me, I still need to get used to them. I have never carved a pumpkin, I need to do it someday. The vampire one was my favorite!
