The judges are still out from our pumpkin carving festivities, but to give you an idea of the pressure I was under, let me show you one line from an email I received last week:
"No pressure but I'm expecting something along the lines of Michelangelo's David given your current schooling."
While I definitely didn't attempt David, I took the Michelangelo thing to heart...
|After a little research, S and I decided on Watermelons...|
I dare you to attempt toting four watermelons on London transport on a Saturday night.
|Can you guess what we carved?|
|Yes, all four Ninja Turtles.|
|This did however result in a 'Who's your favourite Turtle?' debate. I would back Michelangelo all the way to the bank, but I was quickly put in my place.|
Kat toasted yummy pumpkin seeds with three different flavours. Who knew Taco Seasoning made for killer pumpkin seeds?
|Despite how it looks, Paul still has all of his fingers.|
|How to successfully scare away all small children from ones doorstep...well done Crosby.|
|"No, it's not Batman!" Wu-Tang Pumpkin expertly carved by Matt Baird|
|Inspired by the most stolen artwork of all time.|
|'A' for effort Chuck and Jordan ;)|
And then we named all the Vancouver Grizzlies that ever lived....oh, nostalgia.
|What did one ever do before smart phones?!|
Alright, give it to me straight. Which pumpkin / watermelons take the cake?
