Annikah Joy is a true story teller, tale weaver, and lover of all things fantastical and make believe. We got out the paints of one unusually quiet afternoon and she painted and spun some stories that were too great not to record. I asked her to tell me the story of each picture and recorded exactly what she said. It was too fabulous not to share.
“This one is The Grumpy Old Lion
This is a lion and he does not like people (insert sound “ahhh” for added emphasis) but he is very beautiful but also mean but I don’t know why. We should all pray to God so he can be nice.”
“This one is the slippy snake
This here is a big snake named Kia. His name is Kia because he likes to eat keys. He is sleeping right now so Shhhhh. Oh wait!! He already waked up and now is finding some keys for food.”
by Annikah. After each story the always seeking approval Anni asks “Don’t you love that story Mama?” And of course I reply “Yep, I think it pretty much rocks!”
