Carving out a Winner!!!

The polls are now open (well, the comments section is, anyway). So, pick your FAVORITE pumpkin picture and leave a comment with its corresponding number. The submission with
the most votes, wins!

May the best pumpkin win!

(remember, the only criteria was that this activity united the family...something they did together...or otherwise family-oriented!)





(I feel that this one needs explanation--she and her hubby grew this pumpkin together!)








I was very pleased with the variety of the submissions--so thank you to all who sent me your pictures!


PLEASE VOTE!
(That goes for everyone...not just those who submitted!)

Cook Family said...

they are all excellent but my vote is for #8!

Anonymous said...

It's a toss up between 4 and 5 for me. I love the proposal idea but I also like the big pumpkin.

mom said...

#8 - I love romance

Parkers said...

#7 is my favorite, because I know how hard it was to carve those pumpkins.

Rhet said...

#5 is alive. Nice gourd.

The Schwendimans said...

I'm gonna have to go with #12 - that's one cute idea!!

Corrie said...

#9 is great!!

Deedles said...

Hard choice! But I have to go with #12 because that little baby is SO CUTE! :)

Clark's blog said...

I vote for 5, my guess is its way beyond the normal ability of a kid to do that good a job. Now if it was carved by a 30 year old then I feel stupid.

scotty shug said...

number 2 for sure.. hands down the best ever carved pumpkins right there! good job steph:)

Anonymous said...

Gotta vote #8 - I love it!

But #12 is stinkin' cute too!

Liz said...

I think #1 is the hardest pumpkin because of those letters. I do like #12 though because of the baby and the scary face pumpkin. Heck...they're all great!!

katrina and the king said...

#3 & #8

Geneve said...

Gotta go with #4! How romantic!

Lydja said...

#6!! I carved it for my new born, Edin. He was two weeks old when Halloween came.

#8...it's classy and beautiful and just embodies romance.
