Help Us Decide Which Jack-O-Lantern Is Better

by Ryan

Last night we had a pumpkin carving contest and it was a lot of fun. Actually a video of the whole thing was streaming live online. I recorded it so that I can repeat it at a later date because it was a last minute decision to record it. I didn’t tell anyone that I had plans to stream it online so we didn’t notify anyone nor did the people involved really know what was going on until it started.

Every year we try to make it a tradition to carve pumpkins for Halloween and this year is no different.  We knew ahead of time that we wanted to do it and Peggy went ahead and purchased the pumpkins.  We also notified a few people to come over and we would have a contest but due to last minute events coming up last week, we had to change the dates and we didn’t even know when we were going to have it until the weekend.  So in the end, we only had 4 people to help carve pumpkins but it turned out to be a lot of fun anyway.

We decided ahead of time to have a contest and the losers will have to make a pumpkin pie for the winners.  Now that it is all done we need your help to decide who has the better jack-o-lantern.  Here is a picture of the finished products: they are named “Mr Sinister” and “The Witch” (we’ll let you figure out which is which)

Please add your votes to the comments below before 11:59 PM October 30th and we’ll tally the votes and proclaim a winner.  Also, I am going to add the live feed to this website (in the video box) so that you can watch the whole process.  Surprisingly, all the talk about toothpaste did not result into a single tube of Colgate making it into the video.
