My Children are so Brave :)

Yesterday about 8:20p.m. our lights went out. It was so dark we couldn't see our hands in front of our face. My dear, sweet children were all so brave. Not one was scared. Brent was standing in the kitchen and so was Ethan. Annette, Caleb, Josh, Lance & I were finishing our pumpkin pie and my Sweets was mopping the hallway.

I told everybody to stand still until dad and I could light a candle or find a flashlight. I didn't want to smack into a wall ( I bump into walls when we have daylight and wearing glasses. LOL) so my dh said for me to stay where I was and he'll get his 'man' flashlight. You know those Dwalt ones.

Once he found his flashlight I lit some candles and the children thought this was a grand adventure. In fact they all wanted to go upstairs and make their beds. Because of the holidays they have all been sleeping on the floor in the game room. So I took them upstairs and helped them into their little beds (blankets and pillows). Josh had his area ready for any emergency. His clothes, flash light and his new Jonathan Park Communicators.

I'm glad that they were so brave and had fun. We all went to bed early and the lights were back on by 10:30p.m.

We had a wonderful CHRISTmas. My dad and brother came over. I try to make it special for my dad. He is kind of lonely and misses mom.

I didn't buy the children lots of gifts of their own. I did purchase them all one gift and some books. Everything else I bought was Playmobiles and are shared or what we call community toys.

My Sweets read from the Old & New Testaments before we opened the gifts. It was a real nice day. And as always Joshua said, that it's the best. Every year is "The Best CHRISTmas". Too funny.
We are getting ready for new years. Tomorrow we make a little train out of chairs and my Sweets will read from The Polar Express. I'll be in the kitchen getting some dessert and Hot Chocolate ready. The children will come in with their tickets and I'll hole punch them. Once we are done with our hot chocolate we will all snuggle in the living room and watch the Polar Express. We do this every year.

Before we did this with my sis and her two children, but the moved to GA, so we are on our own now.
Next year we plan to ride the Polar Express here in Texas. I think the children will love it.
