Grasshoppers ate my first two leaves off of my pumpkin starts before I could get Sevin or something on them. Will they survive?

    As long as the terminal bud was not destroyed, they will keep growing. The terminal bud is the end of the vine. That being said, with the plant being so small, they likely did damage the terminal bud, so it is best to plant new seeds ASAP.
