Photo Wednesday 3: when the light goes out

The other afternoon, the power went out.  It was out from 4:30 to about 7:30.  So we all climbed into bed together and read by flashlight.  First, I read two books that Whit’s godmother sent to the kids all the way from Beijing.  Then everybody read their own books.  I generally hate when the power is out but this was about as good as it gets.

    Love this! Especially the fact that Whit could go mining as soon as he finishes his book 🙂

    And this will be one of Whit and Grace’s favorite memories… what a wonderful shot!

    Thanks for letting us in on it…

    XOXO

    Can my power go out? Family reading time looks so cozy.

    Oh that does look like heaven! And a great memory for the kids because I remember every special time I cuddled with my parents and little brother and sister in their bed.
