Army Pumpkin





It's early Halloween morning and my sister, Jennie, is on her way to the airport with her two small children.  Her husband, Kris, is on National Guard active duty and is returning home after spending three weeks in Uganda.  He was due home this past Wednesday; however, one small plane issue delayed their homecoming for several days. 

Jennie's work had a pumpkin contest this past week and in honor of Kris and all service men and women, her department entered this pumpkin complete with real Kris accessories.  (She brought it home yesterday to show Kris upon his return.  She walks out of the room for two seconds and her 4 year old managed to dismantle it!  I called her when she was trying to figure out how to get it back together.  HEE HEE!)




Unfortunately, army pumpkin did not win.  Here are the winners.

BEST CARVED:



MOST CREATIVE: (Chef's garden with cat and goldfish - there is a real goldfish in the cat's belly!)
