In Which We Receive a Birthday Surprise

We all follow the Hittygirls group as best we can, which is pretty tricky to do, since they are such an active group!  We couldn't overlook the invitation to sign up for the birthday drawings, as there were so many reminders to encourage us to sign up!  We were so fortunate that our person's name was drawn on Friday, January 22nd, at noon!  We had no idea what we had won, but we were all eagerly watching for mail!  The package came with Thursday's mail.

We found a box full of wonderful surprises!  There was a cute little card (perhaps we can frame it for a picture in our new house?), a knitting bag (with knitting supplies inside), a yellow knit shawl, and a wonderful yellow felt hat!

Since Hitty Rachel was already wearing a blue and yellow dress, we asked her to model our wonderful gifts!

We think she looks quite fetching with her new accessories.  The yellow is a very soft hue, but still sunny and cheerful.  Hitty Rachel is very glad for the shawl today, since there are 7 inches of fresh snow on the ground outside!

Happy Birthday, Ancestor Hitty

The Chesapeake Bay Hittys celebrated Ancestor Hitty's birthday with Hittys and Hittygirls all over the world on Friday and all weekend long!  It sure was fun - it left a big smile on all our faces!  There were drawings for prizes and surprises, tutorials, cake and hundreds of Hitty related e-mails!  We didn't take pictures, since our people are busy remodeling and have made a terrible mess - you'll have to trust us when we tell you we had fun!   We were happy to discover on Friday night that our person's name was drawn to win a surprise!  

Happy Birthday, Hitty - we love you!

In Which We Disclose Our Housing Project


Progress has been very slow, but we are sure that eventually it will be a very nice little cottage to move into. Our contractor is a perfectionist and is often distracted by working on too many projects at once, but she has good intentions.  Surely we'll be able to move in sometime this year.  Until then, we'll enjoy our little bookcase apartment.

In Which the Hittys Enjoy A Good Book

The Hittys start the new year by taking turns reading from the wonderful book that they received from Hitty Robertson. They love all of their books from Esther Robertson's Hittys.
