There was a great hubbub around the gnome stump today, and when we went to see what was going on, we found that instead of just the two Steiff hedgehog residents at the stump--Mr. and Mrs. H.--there were four! Annalou and Russell arrived this morning by train. They had stayed behind in Germany while Bradshaw and Mrs. Hedgehog immigrated and got things arranged for their children. Now they're all reunited and they look so happy together. Mrs. Hedgehog gave the kids' faces a good scrubbing and straightened their clothes before we could take this photograph--she's very particular.
