Giggles By Candlelight

We lost power tonight, and although the temperatures were rising quickly inside and we were missing the olympics, the kiddos made the best of it.

Cade made the girls a fort and they took turns telling stories.  I'm so glad I grabbed my camera because I absolutely love these pics!  What sweet memories were made tonight :)

Then they got Dad in the fort to tell them a story. He came up with a story about a princess who lived in a castle that glowed pink at night. Ends up, it was the fire breathing dinosaur (yes...he said dinosaur) that made the castle glow. :) The girls were totally into it every single second. So cute! August 2012-8720

So sweet! Love the part about a fire breathing DINO :)
It looks almost like Miss Gracie got a haircut in a few of these, but it might just be me or the low light in the pictures :) sad that y'all are missing the Olympics! :(
At least y'all are having fun :)

I've heard you have to watch out for those fire breathing dinos!!! :-) I love love love these photos...better than the Olympics anyway! (I'll fill you in...more men diving is suits too small, Gabby goofed up bars (but still smiled a mile wide...love her!) indoor biking...very odd, men's beach volleyball in just the right amount of clothing. :-)). Hope you have great day...thanks for sharing!

Absolutely precious! The best part was the story by Richard. I love hearing about sweet, imaginative daddies. :)

These are absolutely precious Jen!!!! They capture such sweet memories. One night we lost power and all 3 kids piled in Kate's bed and they told stories too. Dave took phone photos (I was not home) and while they are nowhere near as good as these, I cherish them too.

I love that Richard said dinosaur instead of dragon because that is the kind of stuff we do al the time too!!! it is exhaustion and age in our case.

I texted you...Kate wants y'all to come over Thursday for a fancy tea party!!!
