Our Pumpkin!

We made a Jack-O-Lantern!

Clint did the carving, but I did the scooping!


(Awkward picture of me...but then again I have orange goo all over my hands)


I drew a face on with a pen and Clint carved it perfectly.


We decided to make a happy pumpkin, but he actually turned out closer to goofy.


And he sat happily in our house :)


Making us laugh with his goofy smile!


Sorry to say, he imploded into a moldly mess the DAY before our apartment complex's pumpkin carving contest, so we were sad. BUT, when we went down to see the entries, no one had entered one! (And there were 3 prizes: $50, $30, and $20!) So we thought of a way we might be able to win a hundred bucks - plagarizing! We took down our (fake) pumpkin Lauren Neaves made for us with "The Brocks" on it that we had been keeping out in the hall with candy in it for our neighbors. We acted like it was a joke, but really, if we were the only participants...we're thinkin we're in the money. By the end of the night, there was one other entry, but I'm thinking were in for at least $20. We should probably split that with Lauren though. Anyway, we'll let you know who wins the carve-off...er, pumpkin off. We know who to thank if we place (thanks Lauren!). Great fun!

And just FYI, pumpkins don't last as long as they should. Especially when you keep them inside. They implode into a sticky, moldy mess that makes you have to scrub your carpet. But we loved ours!
