We are so, so close!



After an astonishing show of solidarity that brought pumpkin-sized tears to my eyes, we and the Scholar Pumpkin have rocketed into SECOND PLACE!! That's right, we are only three votes behind Blake and Bekah Boys and their Mummy Pumpkin as of the early hours of November 7.

I really think that we can pull it off - those of you who were waiting until the drama hit a fever pitch can feel free to go ahead and vote now for #13.

Hmmm, maybe the Boys don't have this competition all wrapped up.

I just checked and you guys are one vote apart. I think you shoudl both be given points for your creative politicing...the Boys with the video of their carving session and you with your 'We the People' speeches...

Additionally, I voted for both of you and for Scott Burns...I can not believe that the Smoldering did not rank higher...
Anyway, my hat's off to you Ms. Gates for your mastery of words and your perseverance ...
let the final count allow the best man to win

People voted without even seeing the pictures...are we voting for the pumkins or the people?
