Surprise for Boo Bear

Tonight was a fun night. We gave Boo Bear her big Christmas present early. There was just no way to hide it. Lol! Dave drove to Nashville with the boys to pick it up.

Sweet Pea & Dave bring it in the door. It was heavy!

A new-to-her desk!
Boo loves to draw & likes to do her schoolwork in her room sometimes so I hoped she'd like it. I've been scouring Craig's List for weeks looking for a real wood one with lots of drawers.

Her reaction.


The boys were happy for their sister.

In her room at last.
Think she likes it?

Posing with her "new" desk.
It has 2 deep drawers & 5 other drawers. I love the large work surface & that it is solid wood & very sturdy. It needs a bit of touching up but we don't mind that at all. I am thrilled because it is exactly what I have been looking for & wishing for. We got a fantastic deal & I know it's a piece that will last her a long, long time. My childhood desk is similar and it's in fantastic condition. Sweet Pea has it in her room. It's an answer to prayer.
What was super sweet was the way Boo kept hugging Dave & I. She told us she has wanted a real desk but didn't want to ask us because she knew they were expensive. What a sweetheart. It makes all the hours of searching & the driving to Nashville to pick it up worth it to see her beautiful smile & thankfulness.
