Sunday night we had our annual Pumpkin Carving Contest.
This year we changed things up a bit.
Instead of just the kids and us carving it up, we had family over to play too.
We divided up into couples...
the Graduate & That Girl
the BIL & SIL
the Niece & her "Friend"
the Farmboy and I
We, the Farmboy and I, were pretty sure we had this one.
We were congratulating and patting each other on the backs before we were even finished.
Behold, our creation...
Chocolate Twizzlers sliced and cut up for fur. Chocolate chips glued on for stubble. Garlic for teeth. And an avocado... the skin for ears and the pit for the nose.
It turns out however,
pure brilliance is nothing when up against
PS. It also turns out, that it's not really worth the time to poke a gazillion little holes into a pumpkin and then carefully stuff strings of Twizzlers into each one of them.
Pumpkin juice and chocolate Twizzlers equates to something very much like
laser hair removal.
