Nicole's After Dinner Surprise (Photostory)
After Christmas dinner, most of the family retired to the living room to relax before having dessert. Danielle decided this was the perfect time to show Nicole her new bedroom. Nicole had no idea she was finally getting her own bedroom. Danielle led her to the closed door on the third level, then covered her eyes.
"Are you ready?" (Danielle)
"Ta da!" (Danielle, removing her hands from Nicole's eyes)
"So what do you think?" (Danielle)
"Is this my room?" (Nicole)
"Yes, it is. I had them install the wallpaper you and I picked out months ago. I left plenty for us to decorate together." (Danielle)
"I love it." (Nicole)
Nicole walks in to get a better look.
"We will have to buy you some new desk accessories. And there is plenty of room for your school books." (Danielle)
"Now I can't wait to go back to school and get some homework so I can work at my new desk." (Nicole)
"Now that's a first....you wanting homework." (Danielle)
Nicole moves over to the corner with the beanbag chair.
"I love the horse pictures." (Nicole)
"I knew you would. Behind you on the shelf is a place for your games, DVDs and the tv, which is only allowed to be on during the weekend." (Danielle)
"We will have to pick up a few more board games. That's always a good way to spend family time." (Danielle)
Nicole moves to the last area, the bed.
"Awww. It's so soft." (Nicole)"
"Maybe tomorrow we can get online and try to find a comforter, some curtains and a throw rug." (Danielle)
"Okay. I really like my room. Thank you for putting it together." (Nicole)
"You're welcome. Your dad and I want you to feel at home here. So now you have your own personal space. And when you aren't here, I'll make sure the boys stay out." (Danielle)
"Did Julian see my room, yet?" (Nicole)
"No. You can give him the tour. He'll probably be upset that you have a tv and he doesn't." (Danielle)
"Speaking of Julian, he's probably wondering where we are. Are you ready for some dessert?" (Danielle)
"No, I'm still full from dinner. Can I stay here?" (Nicole)
"Sure. Come downstairs when you're ready." (Danielle)
Danielle leaves and Nicole takes another look around her new room and smiles.
