12th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest/Wassail Party
This post has a lot of pictures, for which I apologize but this is a favorite family party and many were missing this year, so I am posting for them. (You know your husband comes from a large family, when you say out loud, "There will only be 17 coming this year. Yea, I know. It's sad how small this party is this year."
Here is Toothsome #4 with some of her decorations for the party.
This one is harder to see, but there is a face made of streamers on the glass.
My cute nephew hanging out and eating rice cereal.
The carving had begun.
The boys table.
My brother in law, whose wife had a baby about two weeks before, showed up late. It was great to have him there. (He doesn't look too exhausted for a new dad.)
Cute nephew again.
All of the nieces and nephews singing, "Ghost of Tam"
Toothsome #4 with her pumpkin. Toothsome #1 actually carved it for her and she added the sharpie herself. (He and she had worked on her face together for about 1/2 hour earlier in the day.)
This ended up winning, "Best Overall"--done by my oldest nephew.
Once again, a great party.
