In case you ever wondered where my artsy/crafty side came from, I'd have to say I come by it naturally. My mom loves to come up with wonderful projects for the girls too!
When we were visiting my parents recently, my mom had everything needed for the girls to paint a few pumpkins. We took them outside, geared up for a mess and set the girls to painting.
The girls decided to paint a couple of masterpieces. They considered their colors, applied it meticulously and painted more carefully than I've ever seen them. They did not get a speck of paint on themselves or the newspapers!
In the end, we had a couple of beautiful pumpkins and the girls had a great time creating art with their Granny.
