There is much chatter and excitement in Rose Cottage today as preparations for Christmas Day are underway.
Hitty Mischievous is getting stuck right in and helping...never fear, her arms aren't raised in order to make some magic....
...but rather to reach up to get the jars of sweets and candy canes down. She is sure everyone will love those, especially the children!
Other of the Hitty household members are having a nice time chatting and reading beside the tree.
Noel, Miles and Brittany are in the yard playing and chatting about their hopes and dreams for Christmas.
The Hittys pose for a Christmas Portrait.
The whole family!
