We decided to have a blackout night just for fun on Tuesday. J's day off is Wednesday so he could help me move the mattresses back in the morning. This was really fun! We turned off everything except the air conditioner and refrigerator. I put candles in the bathroom, kitchen, and living room. We played a board game and then told ghost stories. It was a night full of laughter!
The candles- I have used that large one on the left for about 4 years now with every power outage. It has 4 wicks and lets off great light! I recommend having something like this in the closet for emergencies.
We celebrated the return of power with homemade pancakes for breakfast. It was a fun, free family night. I hope you will try it sometime.
