The Halloween Party Is Starting
A costume parade! Here they come…can you guess who is who?
Here’s Early~Tulip dressed as Snow White:
Hitty Fifer as a Kitty~Cat:
And here comes Bijoux as…ummm…Halloween Bijoux!
Next is…ahhh…who is this? Any guesses?
Tadie is dressed as a Cowboy-Boot Wearin’ Pumpkin:
And Sweet Mabel is adorable as Mrs. Claus:
Speaking of Adorable, here comes Hitty Adora in her Native American costume, bringing up the rear:
Prizes will be given later for the *Cutest* costumes…Miss VanDroo is the judge:
The parade is heading indoors, where Hitty Jean takes a last look at the tables of goodies:
Hittys Maple and Apple are the first to arrive. “Where should we park our brooms?” they ask.
Now the twins are here! They greet Kookaburra:
“Kookaburra, who’s your Ghost Friend?” asks Hitty Maris. Turns out her name is Ghibelline.
Cherry~Merry arrives and greets her good friend Hitty Maple. Hitty Maple is quite an accomplished Pianist, and has already begun to play all the old Halloween Favorites:
“I could listen to Hitty Maple play all day,” thinks Cherry~Merry. “Why imagine! She has even played in a concert at the Robertson’s!”
Tessa~Vanessa arrives. She is a bit shy, so she hangs back behind the table. I hope someone talks to her:
Hitty Jean begins to pass the drinks. The *Paraders* will be arriving any minute and she wants to be sure everyone gets some of her famous hot cocoa:
Here’s Hitty Adora – the first *Parader* to arrive. Hitty Adora is another who enjoys Hitty Maple’s musical gift. “Wonderful rendition of *Monster Mash*” she says.
“Hi there, Tessa~Vanessa!” says Hitty Fifer. “I think we’d better take a candy apple before they’re gone!”
Miss VanDroo is happy to see that all the *Paraders* have made it safely indoors.
Cherry~Merry and Hitty Apple are enjoying their hot cocoa and having a pleasant chat. They do not see “Bird Princess” sneaking up behind them:
“Sillys….It’s ME!” exclaims Hitty Primrose.
“Holy Candy Corn! It’s YOU!” cries Cherry~Merry. They all share a good laugh. Hitty Primrose promises she won’t sneak up on anyone else:
Over in the corner, Tadie and Early~Tulip are admiring the *Cutest Costume* prizes. They are sure they will *wither* if they don’t win!
Early~Tulip gets a candy apple and considers their options. “I think I have a plan,” she says:
There is plenty of lively conversation as the piano plays on. Hitty Maris is complimenting Hitty Jean on the wonderful candy apples. “They’re almost gone!” she says.
The wee elves have a nice chat with Bijoux:
Then, everyone gathers around the piano for an Old Fashioned Halloween Singalong:
While everyone is occupied, Hitty Jean takes some time to tidy up. She looks at her friends, all having such a nice time, and her pegs swell with happiness. It has been a lovely party, hasn’t it? But wait! She suddenly realizes that not everyone is gathered ’round the piano. Who’s missing?!
“So this…thing…is supposed to represent Miss VanDroo. And if we put the pins in just exactly the right spots, we’ll win the *Cutest Costume* prizes,” whispers Early~Tulip.
Tadie isn’t so sure about this:
“What ARE you two doing?!”
Uh, oh…Hitty Jean has discovered the littles practicing Voodoo.
“Voodoo is a serious art!” she yells. “It is not to be taken lightly!”
Hitty Jean sends them off to sing with the others…
At the end of the party, Miss VanDroo announces the Prize-winners. Early Tulip and Tadie!!! Those two rascals won! They couldn’t help but be pleased:
After the guests leave, Miss VanDroo and Hitty Jean begin cleaning up.
“What a wonderful party that was, Hitty Jean,” says Miss VanDroo.
“I hope I find that Voodoo doll before Miss VanDroo does…” thinks Hitty Jean.
