A Pumpkin Party Tradition

Joanie's annual pumpkin party goes back - over 15 years, for me. 
I should ask Joanie how long she's been hosting it.
I'll bet she says 'close to 30 years...'
These photos make it seem like only gray-haired folks carve pumpkins,
but there were some 20-to-40-year-olds, a handful of teens,
and couple of little kids.  Everyone made a pumpkin.
Everyone enjoyed homemade chili and corn bread, and yummy desserts. 
The pumpkins were lined up on Joanie's front porch, where the carvers
(and the neighborhood) admired them.
Can you pick out the one I carved?
The creme-de-la-creme, featuring intricate scenes, were
still being worked on when this photo was taken.
My personal favorite  : )
