I want to share a tip we have been using for years on how to clean out a pumpkin in 2 minutes. Yes, 2 minutes! You don't even have to touch the slimy guts -- and you'll be ready to carve pumpkins with your kids in no time!
Whether you're hanging shiny red ornaments on fragrant green Christmas trees or mounting pretty green pine wreaths adorned with lovely red bows, red and green are the colors of Christmas. But don't feel limited to these classics when decking the halls.
Christmas wrapping idea: Buy brown wrapping paper (cheap to buy at Walmart or a craft store) and use that paper to wrap your gifts. It's useful for every gift, and you can customize it by writing on the paper.
