Xtreme Pumpkins!!

I am a fan of all things Xtreme, especially when it is spelled omitting the first E, like it makes it that much more!
Well, I have not bought any pumpkins for the house yet, but we are getting ready to head out to the pumpkin patch (yep, we really go out to the patch and pick the pumpkin right from the vine) and get our orange global treasures.
Granted we buy a couple at the real patch then head down the road where the pumpkins are already picked for ya and get a couple cheaper pumpkins down there, the markup on self-picked pumpkins is ridiculous. I am doing all the work afterall.
In the meantime, we are deciding what we will carve into them.
It's a big decision.
We always try to make our better than any others (at least on our block) and definitely unique.
A couple years ago we carved out characters from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, those were definitely unique.
Well, if you are like we are and want some really unique and Xtreme pumpkin carving ideas, you should head over to
(they are super Xtreme even though they opt to use the 'e')
They have contest winners pumpkins from previous years and this one, this one and this one are awesome.
They also have Design ideas, Carving Tips and tons of How-To Advice.
And if you need more ideas or want to see more pumpkins, there is also The Pumpkin Patch flickr group that has some great ideas as well.
Get carving!
