Exciting News at the Park (Photostory)


Chow time!  All the guests have fixed their plates and have settled down to eat.

I'm not sure if we should read anything into Valencia not sitting next to Ian.  Maybe the blanket and grass were itchy.

Kobe and Sharmaine are deep in conversation.

Roberta, JT, and the kids are eating at the picnic table.

"Fabulous job on the grill.  I think you impressed Rod.  He's not known for handing over his grill."  (Roberta)
"Thanks."  (JT)

"You ready?"  (Rod)
"I'm more than ready."  (Danielle)

A quick kiss and they return to the group.

"Hey guys.  Hope you are enjoying the food.  JT did a fabulous job.  (applause from the group)  We just wanted to say thanks to everyone for joining us today.  We felt the picnic was a great way to welcome Mommy to town and a good way to get to know JT."  (Danielle)
 .
"JT, I have to admit, I was not totally excited when Mommy told us about you, but after today, I am a fan.  I think Mommy is in good hands."  (Danielle)

"Thanks for making me feel right at home."  (JT)

"Rod and I also thought since most of the family is here, this would be a good time to share some news."  (Danielle)

"We're moving!"  (Danielle)

"You're not moving out of town, are you?"  (Roberta)

"No, we're moving to a bigger house right here in town."  (Danielle)

"And the reason we're moving is because we are expecting."  (Danielle)
"Expecting!  You're having a baby?"  (Roberta)

"Oh my goodness.  I'm so excited for you.  How far along are you?"  (Roberta)
"Three months."  (Danielle)
"Three months?  How did you ever keep this from me?"  (Roberta pulling Danielle in close for a hug) 

"No offense Mom, but you are not the best at keeping a secret.  The whole town would have known before I had time to tell the family."  (Danielle)
"Ooo wee.  Wait til the ladies hear this."  (Roberta)
"My point exactly."  (Danielle, laughing)

So the time has finally arrived.  Danielle and Rod are having a baby together.  Yay!  I know you are all very excited.  So I have six months to find the perfect baby.  Someone should tell Danielle being pregnant and moving are not a great combination.  Hopefully, they will be moving sooner, rather than later.  Would you like to see their house?

Yep, they will be the proud new owners of the Country Estate.  I'm a little afraid of this house.  I think it is going to be much bigger than it looks here.

    1. Ladonna - Surprised me, too. When I saw that house months ago, that was the first time Danielle even considered having another child. She and I had already fantasized about who would have what room. She got excited about the baby room.

  2. Yay, a new baby for Danielle and Rod! This will be interesting. Love the new house for them! I have been eyeing this one too, so can't wait to see what you think of it! About Valencia not sitting next to Ian -- maybe she just wanted to look into those big brown eyes!

    1. Phyllis - I will give the 411 on the house once it arrives and I get it put together. After seeing Ian leaned up against Valencia later, I felt that things were just fine. Time will tell.

    1. D7ana - They negotiated the house down to something I was willing to pay. It was nice having all of her family there to share the news. Now she gets to break it to her friends.

    1. My doll stuff - I think they tried to throw everyone off by mentioning the move first. They are uber excited!

  6. I look forward to reading about the move into the new house, seeing how it is decorated, keeping up with Danielle's pregnancy, and finding out how evil Melanie will feel about Danielle and Rod having a baby. I know she will have something negative to say and/or do. People like her derive pleasure from making others miserable.

    1. DBG - Danielle wished you lived closer. She has a feeling the builders are going to need a little assistance with this one. I have first hand experience about how Melanie will handle the news. She may actually take it to another level.

  7. Hi there! I am a follower of your blog and your stories, although I never post because I never know what to say... I would like to ask you for advice, if it's okay to you, since you are a big AA dolls expert. I have a So In Style Prom Trichelle that I want to make articulated. However, I am worried about matching the skin tone. Do you know which is the closest one of the Fashionistas or Barbie Style dolls?
    Thanks a ton.

    1. Moonlight - Hello and thanks for being a follower. I am now a follower of your blog. I can tell from the little I've seen so far that you are a fashionista. I look forward to catching up on posts. As for your Trichelle. I don't have that particular doll, but if the skin tone is like the rest of the Trichelles, The Artsy or Desiree old articulated fashionista dolls should work. That is what my Trichelle is on. Barbie Style will probably work, too. I would take the doll with you to the store and get a visual since the Barbie Styles are still in some of the stores. Good luck. I wouldn't worry too much if it's not a perfect match. In real life some AA faces are shades different than their bodies.

  8. So let me tell you about my up, down, up. I knew from the post it was exciting news. When Danielle said something to Rod, I figured she was pregnant - the up.

    Then they said they were moving - the down - because I was obviously wrong. Moving is nice, but I thought it was a baby.

    Then they said the reason for the move...new baby - back up again! YAY!

    1. Janainah - That is hilarious! That's why they mentioned the move first. They figured people would be waiting for baby news.

    2. Youre welcome, I see many of us wanted them to have a baby, and here it is :-) it will all be worth it in the end, new house and new baby, and Melanie, may not be so happy with this news-if she is a good sport, she'd wish them well :-)

  20. What a wonderful surprise ending to this series of stories! I am delighted for them. Buying a house with a baby on the way is stressful. I know from experience. But as long as they are settled in before Danielle's nesting phase begins, she'll be fine. Gotta admit I can't wait to see Melanie's reaction to this news.

    1. Jewell - They are very lucky they found a new house, otherwise, I don't know if they would be adding to their family. They just didn't have any more room in their current home. The builder (me) is not really looking forward to putting this home together. I will probably have to hire help (my 7 yr old neighbor) to give me a hand with the lifting.
