Creativity runs deep through my veins, and I was subtly reminded of that today as I sat down with my 9 year old daughter, Lily, and my mom, carving pumpkins.
Never one to embrace the stencils at craft stores for pumpkin carving, I set out on my own this year and surprised even my mother, herself a truly gifted artist, and the source of my creative spirit. "Now that's inspired!" she said, and I got the sense of pride only a daughter can understand.
This is Penelope, aka my 6th child, and the target of my childrens' jealousy from time to time.
