Early yesterday morning the girls were busy getting the room ready for their Hitty Thanksgiving in honour of their American friends and guest Hitty Perdita Mischievous.
They busied themselves at the table, laying out food, plates, cutlery and crockery,
The first guests to arrive were the Peach Tree Hittys
Hitty Perdita Mischievous was given a seat at the head of the table.
They waited patiently for their other guests to arrive
and hoped that the Wren Cottage Hittys will remember some extra seating!
Some time later,
All had arrived! They did bring two bench seats with them, which helped but there was still some who had to sit on the floor, but they were okay about that.
A very enjoyable feast was had for sure.
Much talking, eating and drinking went on.
The guest of honour thoroughly enjoyed herself....
...and managed to restrain herself from trying any magic tricks!
