Here is the everything from this year. Some I posted prior. I'll put them into one string next year. Seems like what everyone else is doing. First year doing the crazy patterns on foam. I had done a couple last year but nothing too difficult. Family killed it this year. Lots of cool stuff. Our annual family contest was won with by the "frozen" on foam. Vader came in second by my 20 yr old. Owl in third by my 11 yr old. Had a total of 222 votes this year. Got two weeks of life out of 3 of our real kins. We brought them home from our pumpkin walk after it ended. That was awesome. Already planning for next year!!!

All of those carves look great, and you have such a nice display.

BTW, where do you live? I'm moving there. I would love to have chaos like that around my house!

A suburb just north of Syracuse. No one wants to move here. We average 10 feet of snow per year. It is a lot of fun though at Halloween. Having slugs of 20 people role through can be overwhelming. People asking questions. I brought my tools down to show to people when I had the time. Sunday will be a relax / catch up day.

Ah, yes, the snow! The jackets in the photo were a clue... My family are all Canucks and I grew up in the northwoods, so I remember the mountains of snow! But seriously, you are lucky to have such an an active, engaged community on Halloween. Where I am in SoCal, the weather is great for trick or treating - no bulky down jackets needed under costumes - but it's severely lacking in ToT-ers. So I hang in the Forums for a little Halloween camaraderie! Nice job on your carves.

Great display, awesome carves!!! We don't get a big crowd where we live, so when we buy a house, that will definitely be a consideration for me... potential for Halloween fun. Your gathering spot looks nice and cozy! Thanks for sharing!
