6th Annual Chu Family Pumpkin Carving Party

Yesterday we held the 6th Annual Chu Family Pumpkin Carving Contest and the winner was...Tania with her lion fish. It's always a good time when we get together with my crazy, loud family and yesterday was no different. We dined on fish tacos (thanks Andy!), the kids and I made mummy dogs and my mom made vietnamese dessert and stew. There was also a game of football, some yoga and other random fun. Can't wait for next year!

Tips for winning next year:
Pick your design early
Buy a really big pumpkin. The size itself will be impressive.
