A Mystery Solved

 The Morrison Family recently found out their homestead is taking longer to build than originally thought.
This newly formed and very adaptable family is enjoying life in a couple of caravans for a while.

 Hitty Daisy and Michael's adopted children have been asking lots of questions about their names and Hitty Daisy finally has an answer.
It all lies within the pages of The Milly-Molly-Mandy Storybook.

 Billy and Susan are beloved characters in this wonderful story.
Of course, Hitty Susan also has Hitty in her name because she is a is her new mother.

 Milly-Mollie-Mandy is actually the little girl in the story who experiences many happy adventures with her best friends, Billy and Susan.
The orphanage matron must have decided to split up the names for the three little girls who just happen to be triplets!
She was obviously a big fan of the book.

The children all agree they love their names and are eager to have their mother read them the storybook.
