My kids are really into "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" this year, so I wanted to do Peanuts-themed pumpkins this year. As you all know, I am quite the football fan as well, so I decided to go with Snoopy wearing a football helmet and carrying the pigskin, and Charlie Brown lying on his back after Lucy pulls the ball away. However, I still needed to have a "Great Pumpkin" so I cut out silhouettes of the Lombardi Trophy and the Stanley Cup on my third pumpkin to commemorate the dual Pittsburgh championships. I don't think you can get a Great Pumpkin any better than that!

*You* carved that?
That's talent, my man. I see alternative career options for you (professional Halloween pumpkin carver).

No , seriously, that's really good.

Last year, since the big news around Halloween-time was the November election, I did Obama and McCain themed pumpkins

Before that, I did Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas (however, I did that one about a week before Halloween, and that pumpkin started to rot prior to Halloween...see the black mold in some of the cuts? Ewww....)

My best work, however, was carving pumpkins of my kids for their respective first Halloweens:

Since they are now 8 and 5, I should probably do updated versions of them next year, but those are some difficult carvings to make. They are surely worth if they come out nice, though.
