A Virginia dad is making pumping carving an art form.

Noel Dickover is a government contractor by day who turns his kitchen into a workshop at night.

What started ten years ago as one man's obsession now includes Noel's friends and family. His daughter has been carving since she was 5.

"Our kids got into it which made my wife happy and then it just got crazy. And it's gone a little more every year," he said.

Last year, the family carved 50 pumpkins.

If you'd like to try your hand at one of Noel's creations, you can find his patterns and tutorials for free online on his website:
