ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY ~ SUGARY-( the Pettifour-Pinafore )


Ameila and her grandma spent the whole morning creating sugary pettifours. They were having a lot of company for a special luncheon.
     " I wish I could eat just one or maybe two and then serve our guests, 
 because if we serve them all, they look so good that there won't be any left."
     "I know, and that's too sad isn't it." said grandma. 
      Ameilia thought for a while.
     "I know, we can share them! But, before we do I must have just one!"
     Amelia's grandma smiled and  let her choose the perfect one and then she said,
"I have an idea Amelia. Let's paint some designs on your pinafore. Then you will always have a SUGARY reminder of what we baked today."
    " A delicious idea!" exclaimed the child, and together Ameilia and her grandmother painted delightful designs on her pinafore.
  " What a nice way to remember this day!" grandma hugged Amelia and they carried the tray of sugary delights into the dining room to wiat for their guests.
