I'm allowed another two ain't I? The babes wants to do one, probably will be a skeleton or something (through the eyes of a 2 year old!!!)

Wow LLM that's brilliant!

Notts - loving the bats too!

Not sure I'm going to do one as never carved a pumpkin in my life. Think I may just stick to making halloween cakes as usual lol.

C'mon folks

I am getting my pumpkin delivered tonight

Tell you now the kids entries will be better than mine BUT I am going to give it a go

Never carved a pumpkin before (mum used to do them for us though) so this has inspired me to change that

Going to make pumpkin soup with the insides

So any tips for a first attempt?

These are our 3 that we did today ^^^^^^^^

Just to add our kids are 13, 12, 10 and 7. The older ones drew on the designs and they all helped to carve them out.

This is my first ever attempt at carving a pumpkin so I'm pretty pleased with it.

Yes I think everyone is getting extra large pumpkins as substitutes

Some great carvings, keep them coming folks

uploaded a pic of my girlfriends pumpkins on page 1, dunno if im going to be getting myself, was thinking of going down the pumpkin vomiting route aswell, think hers are good though as are urs timandvick!

is urs charlie brown evil pumpkin?

i can always get her to send me a pick with her name next to them btw, as she doesnt have an accoutn she'll have to go under my name which means i have one more space left....
