Making a list..checking it twice..?

Soon..the Hilltop kitchen was filled with woodland creatures...

The Dutchess was making sure that everyone had their tea and cookies before she sat down at the table...for a minute she looked at all the sweet faces of her friends...then,whilst raising her voice she said..

-My dear Hilltop inhabitants...its so good to see you here and I'm so happy that you all came visiting me on so short notice...I have a very important message for you all...its about the Christmas presents..

-What about the presents my dear Lady..croaked Gustave....do you need a list....I have mine ready...
-Mine too...said Elvira...
-.....and mine....uttered Sir Horatio with his mouth full of cookie....I could make copies for all of you.. -Really....twittered Miss Moussie....I don't think we need a copy of your list this year Horatio....but just because I'm curious..how many items where on your list...Hmmm?
  -....nothing special my dear miss Moussie..nothing special ..said Horatio....and he stuffed another cookie in to his mouth..
-How about YOUR list then..dear Mr Mole..said the Dutchess...did you have a list ready for us..
-Nnnnoo....stammered C nervously...no no....I completely forgot about Christmas....I was reading this book you see..and ..well....Sorry...
-Typical...mumbled Horatio..typical....
-Forget about the lists...twittered Miss Moussie....while she looked Sir Horatio firmly in the eye......this year we are going to do things differently..!
-...............we are, croaked Gustave...?
-Yep.....squeaked Miss Moussie....we have come up with a marvelous plan...didn't we dearest Dutchess.....?

And now our Dutchess explained why she wanted to do things differently this year...and how special it was to care about your loved ones.. and therefore make them ONE very very very special gift... Then....Miss Moussie placed the Duchess's bonnet on the kitchen table.....and twittered....

-Go ahead my friends...pick a card out of this hat...but don;t tell who it is you have picked..don't read the name you see written out loud.....this is going to be the biggest secret to keep in the weeks to follow....!!!
-How exiting whispered Elvira...I wonder WHO will pick ME..-
-Maybe I will....hooted Who who sat next to her...

.....The next few minutes in the kitchen where  silent and serious....they all picked a card...and they all secretly looked at the name written...Horatio did this hiding behind the tea cosy.....you could hear him sighing....-Phew...thank goodness..!
  -Mr Mole did not say anything...and he did not read what was written on his card !...Why not?....Well...he simply had forgotten his reading glasses....
About an our and many cups of tea later... all the Hilltop inhabitants where back in their nests...Mr Mole entered his labyrinth...

  -Now...let me see said C....where are my reading glasses...aah..there they are..in the flowerpot.. With the glasses on his nose he slowly unfolded the little piece of paper and he read....

                      .....MR. C. MOLE........

Oh dear! I hope that Mr. Mole finds a solution to his dilemma before it's too late. :)

We love hearing news from the Hilltop; it sure beats what's on tv!

Love,

Marqueta

WHERE IN THE WORLD WAS I? Well, I certainly was no where near Hilltop when this purely enchanting tale was unfolded! DEAREST DUTCHESS! YOU ARE BACK IN THE DRAWING SEAT! YES, YES!!!! Oh dear, there is much magic being stirred up UP at the Hilltop! Bravo my sweetness....we are working hard out here trying to make the magic, but daily tasks keep the days rolling by and missing out on all the fun. Big hugs to you and THE GANG! Much love, Nita
