Lights out!

We experienced at least a dozen, quick power outages on Sunday. While it did interrupt our lazy day of watching football and putting up Christmas decorations, it got a little funny at night.

We had candles lit through the house waiting for the power to go off as the sun had set.

Around 8 p.m. the lights cut off and Stacy and I were on the other side of the house from the kids. Surprisingly, the kids just kind of went on playing and called for us. They did not freak out like I used to when I was a kid.

One time later in the evening, Rigby, Stacy and I were in the kitchen and the power went off. I had a flashlight in my pocket and went to look for Lucy, because she was thinking it was hide and go seek time apparently.

As I turned on the flashlight and headed to the living room, my light caught a small girl face just as she let out a yelp and started to laugh. It scared me a little, sort of like those creatures on the movie "Descent." Lucy thought it was hilarious and just laughed.

The power soon came back on and we enjoyed the rest of the evening. Such random day events that I had to record.
