Pumpkin Carving Night
Tuesday was our first ever company “event” – Tesseract Mobile Pumpkin Carving Night. Check out the awesome pumpkins from our awesome team :)
Our company logo, carved by Luke Murphy.
Our Solitaire MegaPack logo carved by Jennifer Oldfather
Our Gin Rummy logo carved by me, Laura Ockel
The Ace of Diamonds by Alexis Behrle
And the Android logo, carved by Joshua Frank. It was the first pumpkin he ever carved :)
Now here are a few some images from the evening…
I don’t know which is scarier. The sign threatening to shoot you, or the creepy guy in the shadows.
They had A LOT of pumpkins at the pumpkin patch!
Does a Psycho Wizard really need a sign to identify him? And what’s with the scythe?
There were many of these seemingly random tableaus in among the pumpkins. The Wizard of Oz? Really? Why doesn’t the lion have fur? So many questions…
Yes, those are stuffed gorillas in the trees.
I really wanted someone to take my picture laying on the giant pumpkins. Luckily, there were signs warning me against it.
petting zoo was very educational.
Cute pun-kin tree :~)
So many gourds!
I loved this hanging corn!
Even though my fridge was broken on Tuesday morning, I still managed to put together some decent snacks for the party, including this Halloween-toned vegi tray.
With our snacks and drinks prepared and the dining room table covered in newspapers, we set about carving our pumpkins.
Josh was the only one who’d let me post a picture of him. I don’t think he’d seen the insides of a pumpkin before :)
I’d never carved a white pumpkin before, but they didn’t have any big ones, so I ended up carving the most intricate design onto the smallest pumpkin. Here’s how it looked starting out.
This is the spade that Jennifer removed from her pumpkin.
And this was one of the marvelous cupcakes Jennifer brought over. She did hot pepper cupcakes and pumpkin spice cupcakes. They were so good!
After dinner, we all came back and finished up our designs. It was a lot of fun.
In case you are wondering, here are links to the tools used to carve the pumpkins, and the LED lights (which were awesome) all purchased on Amazon:
