Night with no power!

About 2 weeks ago, we were getting ready to put the kids to bed and the power went out. The kids freaked out b/c their fans, nightlights, and radios went out and their rooms were pitch black dark and silent. We ended up being without power for 4 hours so we had to find ways to entertain the kids until they became really sleepy. Above, they are playing with the flashlights and telling silly, spooky stories.
Next, they pretended that they were in a Star Wars movie.
The flash from my camera really lit up the room when Z was telling her story.
Here they are with no flash from my camera.......just their flashlights. We ended up reading about 10 books, told all kinds of stories, made shadow puppets, and played other silly games. They finally fell asleep around 11:00!!
