A Visit With The Robertson Hittys
It all started with the passing out of gifts. Hitty Jean just couldn’t believe that after so much time planning her trip and knitting shawls, hats and mittens for the Robertson Hittys, the time to present them had come. The Robertsons squealed with delight over the mittens. Hitty Jean was so pleased with how grand they all looked in their new knits:
Hitty Belle loved her new sweater so much that she wouldn’t take it off. She even wore it during the Hitty Club luncheon! Hitty Jean understood completely. The Robertson Hittys had presented Hitty Jean with a new dress which she absolutely adores:
After that first busy day of gift~giving and Hitty Club, as well as dinner out and much chatting, the Hittys were getting tired. Hitty Robertson was preparing the bedroom for sleep, and Hitty Jean tagged along. Hitty Jean couldn’t help but envy all the wonderful dolls and stuffed toys in the Robertson Hitty’s bedroom, but how on Earth could a Hitty even fit into a bed so full of toys?!
Before bedtime, Hitty Jean was given the traditional *photo op* in Twin Manor’s Entrance Hall:
The next day, Hitty Robertson and Hitty Jean went through some fabric. They had fun selecting some for Hitty Jean to take home. Hitty Jean is hoping to learn to sew herself some dresses.
Hitty Jean met Hitty Pat and Hitty Bee, who introduced her to the family pets:
There were so many Hittys together, and so much chatter. But there is someone else who lives at the Robertson’s who is not a Hitty, and that is Gretta. Hitty Jean found her to be very shy and worried that Gretta might be feeling left out. It turns out that Gretta was just waiting for the Hittys to leave the room, so she could have the candy corn and toys to herself!
Hitty Jean had to get up very early on the day of her departure. So early, in fact, that she did not expect anyone else to be awake. She quietly dressed and went to the kitchen for a drink. To her surprise, Bécassine was there! She had prepared a wonderful breakfast for Hitty Jean and insisted she sit down and eat:
While Hitty Jean sipped her coffee and nibbled on a bagel, Bécassine cautioned her about airport safety and instructed her to call when she arrived home.
Hitty Jean had had great fun with the Robertson Hittys. Such kind and hospitable Hittys they are. Hitty Jean is sure she will miss them very much, but also hopeful that she will visit again…someday.
However, if the Robertson Hittys find out what Hitty Jean did when no one was looking, she may not be invited back. She can’t help but feel a pang of guilt about her naughtiness.
But that’s a tale for another day…
