Pumpkin Carving Contest {Winner}

UPDATE 11/01/15: Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by our blog and cast your vote for your favorite pumpkin this year. We had a great response and it was a very tight race.

No, I’m just kidding it wasn’t even close. The pumpkin that won this year pretty much blew all the others out of the water as the overwhelming favorite.

Brent!

Congratulations Brent you win bragging rights for the year (but don’t let it go to your head). Second place went to Doc Brown carved by my dad and third place went to Darth Vader carved by my brother. My hipster cat pumpkin and my mom’s Linus pumpkin followed behind.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in our family pumpkin carving contest. It was really fun and we can’t wait to do it again next year.

Gray House Studio Pumpkin Carving Contest 2015

I mentioned a few posts ago that my (Courtney) family takes pumpkin carving very seriously. We are a family that enjoys making a friendly competition out of just about anything. Thus, eight years ago this fun little pumpkin carving contest was born.

Each year we look forward to gathering together, picking out pumpkins and spending a fall afternoon outside together drinking apple cider and carving.

We share photos of our creations and invite our friends and family to vote for their favorite. That is when the competition (and trash talking) begins. The carver with the pumpkin that gets the most votes wins bragging rights. It has become a fun family tradition that we look forward to every year.

We have been polling the opinions of our extended family and close friends for years but since starting the blog we have made so many great friends and have such supportive readers that we thought it would be fun to get your thoughts too! Thank you for taking the time to participate in our fun!
