The Great Pumpkin

Occasionally I would like to post something non-wedding related. Especially since I think this blog will remain in use once the wedding is over.

Last night Matt and I went to an awesome pumpkin carving party at our friend Tamisha's house. Every year she has a get together with fantastic chili, cold beer, and lots of candy. However, I should mention that this is a very serious event for Matt. Last year he discovered the joys of pumpkin carving. He attempted an ambitious pirate ship design that turned out looking pretty cool:

This year he stepped up his game. Here he is at work on his masterpiece:

Finally after a little more than 2 hours of work, here is this year's pumpkin (get the smelling salts ready):

Here it is at night, the "I Can't Believe I Spent 2 Hours Carving a Pumpkin" pumpkin:

Here it is posing with its pumpkin posse:

No, you are not hallucinating. Senator Obama graced us with his presence last night. It was uncanny how much this carving looked like him:

A Sarah Palin pumpkin is rumored to be in the works, we will keep you posted and alert the AP to any developments.

Matt even won a much coveted prize for his pumpkin skills:

Yep, a new t-shirt.
