SHE LiVeS! The flu finally FLEW aWaY! 2009 Annual Tippetts PUmpKiN Craving Contest

I was a little worried there for a bit! I had the flu bug from H#!%!!! It kicked my butt! However I feel as if I MIGHT live! I still have a bit of the "cougha's"(bellaism's) & I get pooped walking upstairs! BUT the show must go on .........AND the winner is: This little cutie! Taya Shay won the 1st prize: The clever Pirate award! LOOK at that FACE!!! She would sit by this award after Papa made it a couple of weeks ago & DREAM of winning it! SOOO stinking CUTE!
The way this thing works is the Tippetts family & their family get to carve, design, paint,
decorate, bedazzle, any pumpkin & make it theirs! We then invites friends (the Barkers) And good neighbors (the Actons) to participate AND/OR Judge. AND we pay them in Homemade spud nuts(recipe: next post), apple cider AND hot cocoa!
I tell you it is getting harder AND harder every year, as the kids AND grand kids are getting BETTER AND BETTER every year. This year Shilo & her 3 children & hubby Cory took home the booty! We missed our Teisha & Johnny & Arbor, who live too far to come for the day! BOO!
Any way: see the cool standing skeleton? That was REALLY the best one!(shhhhh) It is Kevin's, YES we know you are a awesome carver & all around great guy, AND he was willing to share the 1st prize with his sweet potato Taya! Mr Gavin HAS to be given so extra Props! He carved that AWESOME Dracula,
ALL BY himself! SOOO GOOD GAVY! You take after Papa!
