We carved a pumpkin yesterday :)
All Noah's design and most of his cutting, with a little help.
I love the color and smell of pumpkins.

Martha Stewart had some other pumpkin decor ideas on her website last year and I shared these then, but here they are again.
Use a drill to poke holes in a pumpkin. (after it's cleaned out)
Put a string of Christmas lights inside, poking the lights out thru the drilled holes. Cut a larger hole in the back of the pumpkin to pull the cord out...plug in...and that's it. So pretty! I want to do some of these.

You can also cut out shapes all over the pumpkin and light it with a candle. See the Charlie Brown zig-zag one? Love that!

If you haven't subscribed to Donna Downey's new monthly newsletter yet, you should. It's really cool :) She has it divided into sections where she shares ideas on organizing from her scrap space and also gives you a challenge to alter something in her "Trash To Treasure" section. You can subscribe on her website/blog here.

I'm going to work on rearranging Noah's playroom today, so I'm off to organize.

The expression on Noah's face cracks me up! You must shake your head sometimes and think 'What a kid!'. Live entertainment, 24/7.

By the way, how are you doing on Redeeming the Season? I was doing so well, then I seem to have gotten stuck.
