Pumpkins Photo Gallery


I hold a yearly pumpkin carving party in the week before Halloween.  Friends come over to carve whatever squash they prefer (usually squash, and usually pumpkins - we've had acorn squash, turnips, a pineapple, a mini-watermellon, and even a jack o'lantern made from a lime) and when everyone's done I take a photo of the assembled results.  A copy of the previous year's photo is always included in the photo (though not always lit well enough to gain the full effect this could offer).  In 2011 we added "The Flaming Pumpkin Tower of Doom" to the party!

More photos added yearly.
