The Fourth Annual Great Pumpkin Contest

Once again, The Hospital Of Saint Raphael is holding their annual Great Pumpkin Contest.
Now for those of you who don't know about this contest, this is the fourth year that the hospital put out a challenge to the employees to decorate a pumpkin. The only trick about this treat is that the pumpkin can not be cut.

Now I'm not putting out bragging rights or anything but if you look back at the last two years on my blog, tucked away ever so neatly in the months of October 07' and 08', you might noticed that "Team Pathology" won both years. I might also have to throw in the fact that I, along with some really talented co-workers are Team Pathology. OK, that's enough of self praise.... we rock.

This year, Team Captain: Marsha, thought up the most excellent idea of transforming out giant, egg shaped pumpkin into the man-eating plant, Audrey 2, from the play "The Little Shop Of Horrors". So with a bunch of clay, a few buckets of paint and a lot of imagination, we recreated a Broadway icon.

Here's a look at the making of Audrey 2 , along with some very worthy pumpkin entries from other departments in the hospital where their talented employees were kind enough to share their vision of how they saw their Halloween pumpkin.

Good luck to all that entered.

UPDATE 10-31-09: Our pumpkin won FIRST PRIZE!!!!
