Where were you when the lights went out?
We were gathered around the dining room table
with stacks of games, books, snacks, and enough candle light
to play and read by. Princess even played some
music on the piano for us.
I had originally thought we'd hang outside with
the fire pit and stars, but it was very cold here, so we stayed inside.
Princess had a blast as we geared up and didn't complain until we
had four minutes to go and she had to go to the bathroom.
She did not want to go in the dark. She left her flashlight somewhere
in the house when playing earlier, so although I had a votive lit in a wall
sconce, I followed her in with a larger candle.
Once the timer went off she said we should do this every night.
