I’m so happy that Matthew and I were able to carve our pumpkins this year. I didn’t even realize it, until putting this post together, but this is the 5th year we’ve had our little/fiercely competitive carving contest! When we first did it, Matthew had just moved down to LA. I think we thought of the idea when I was visiting him in the Bay Area, as a “when you move to LA, we should have a carving contest!” sort of idea. Now, 5 years later it’s one of our favorite traditions. We may not have had our usual trick or treaters for judges, but my parents, my brother, and one of my besties voted. Unfortunately, I think this was Matthew’s year to win. What do you guys think?
What do you think? Hairy, straw-chewing pumpkin, or cute, smiley, one tooth pumpkin?
