What To Do When the Power Goes Out

To start off the new year, we had snow and an ice storm recently, which caused power outages.  We were fortunate (or unfortunate if you were one of my children) to have lost power for only a few hours.  So what can you do when the power goes out?

Play a board game 

Roast a bagel by candle fire

Pose for a few pictures

Build a fort under the table

And when it is completely dark out and stomachs are rumbling..........

Go out to eat

Proof that Peter does eat  ; )

Mom (to Peter):  Will you put the draft guard in front of the door to keep the draft out?

Molly (playing happily):  What!  There's a giraffe out there?!

We don't have any giraffes outside, but we do have a lot of snow!  We'll will post pictures soon hopefully.

Kid Logic Friday

This comment was made by one my older children who thinks he needs to watch what he eats:
"This pie is soo good - can you never make it again!"

We were explaining to Molly that it doesn't get light until later in the mornings because it is winter.  Just before bedtime Molly asks, "Is the Morning going to pretend it's still night-time again when I wake up?"
