*MORE New Neighbors* + House Tour

Kit woke up early to the sound of chattering outside.

 "What the heck?" 
"New neighbors! Oh my goodness!"
She burst into Samantha and Nellie's room. "Wake up! Wake up! We have MORE new neighbors!!"
"Calm down..." Samantha told Kit, Nellie sat up in bed.

Kit ran down the stairs to the second floor...
"Get up you three sleepy heads! You have got to see this!" Kit pointed to the window.
"MORE new neighbors!"
"Oh my goodness! Look at their beautiful house!" Kirsten said.

"Well what are you waiting for? Let's go SEE IT UP CLOSE!"
"Just a minute!" Samantha said, "we should get Nicki and Saige to go with us." Kit rolled her eyes, she was impatient.
"I'll go next door to get them." Molly said already out the door.
The dolls gathered together and stood on the wrap around porch.
"Gee whiz! Look at their porch! Ours is rickety and dusty! And our awning is missing..." Kit grumbled.
"Its not missing! It's been temporarily removed so the front of the house can be worked on." Samantha snapped.
Nellie and Felicity winked at each other, "they have a door!"
(KNOCK KNOCK) Just then the door came crashing down!
"Oh no! I am so sorry! Is anyone hurt?" Marie Grace said quickly.
"No everyone is fine, but you should be very careful." Nicki said.
"Oh my gosh!" Felicity grabbed Nellie. "Their door isn't even attached!"  
"Hello, we live next door and wanted to introduce ourselves." Felicity said. "Here is a basket of fresh eggs from our chicken coop."
"Oh thank you."
"Your house is lovely! We just recently moved into the house that sits on the other side of their 3-story." Said Saige.
"Yes it's the square white one." Nicki added.

"Cecile! Come and meet our neighbors..." called Marie Grace.
Just then everyone gasped. "Just the two of you live this big house?" Saige asked.
 "Bonjour! The house is not THAT big. It really only has one bedroom that is why I took the attic space." Explained Cecile.
"Attic space! I have an attic bedroom too. Can we see it?" Kit asked.
"Sure we'll give you the tour..." motioned Marie Grace.
The dolls looked high and low, gasping and murmuring all the while.
"Your bed is beautiful!!" Felicity said.
"They have real mirrors.." whispered Nellie.
"Attic space? It's not a space! It's the entire attic!" Kit exclaimed.
"Kit! Don't be rude!" Samantha said.
"Oh no it's quite alright. Yes Kit it is the entire width of the house, but do you see this tiny niche? It's impossible to do any thing with!" Cecile explained.

"Oh I think it's lovely. Maybe you could make it a closet." Samantha suggested.
"What's a niche?" Nellie asked Felicity. 
"It's like a small useless area, an alcove." Felicity answered.
"Well that sounds wonderful however I was considering it to be home for my volière." Cecile replied. The girls looked at one another..."pardonnez-moi I forget to say things in English - bird cage."
 The dolls enjoyed looking around the charming doll house and shared lemonade and conversation with their new neighbors.
