Every year we go to Pumpkin Carving at our friends' Becky & Gary's house. This has been going on for 5 years now! I love this event, it is just a blast. We bring pumpkins, pick out patterns and go to town. Then we get to have s'mores by the fire!! It is a fabulous event. Anyhow, Saturday night was our fifth annual Pumpkin carving, so here are some pictures to share:

Mr.Pate and I shaved a P in one pumpkin (my hand still hurts!)
Our other pumpkin, pretty reflective of us!
Showing off!
My friend Derick's pumpkin, Emily Dickinson! Hardcore I know.
A view of most of the pumpkins (yes there were even more than this!)


  1. wow--that emily dickinson one is crazy!!! yours are super cute though!

  2. Those are amazing. Where do you get the templates. I am having some friends over on Saturday for trick-or-treating and we are going to carve pumpkins and it would nice for me to have some templates already set out.

  3. Nina- mostly we print them offline, just doing a google search for pumpkin carving patterns. Some people use the templates from those boks you buy at Wal-mart too.
