31 Days of Halloween: Days 9 & 10

What a busy few days it has been! The weather had been holding up nicely until this morning. We had thunderstorms this morning as I took Pickle to school. When I came back home the 2 younger kids and I took a nap. When we woke up, it didn’t take long to realize the power is out.

2 year olds don’t understand what that means. “Mommy, I want to watch videos!” “Mommy, I want to watch tv downstairs!” “Mommy, I want to watch Bubble Guppies!” After explaining every time that we don’t have power to be able to have any of that technology right now, she still insists on watching something.

Since the lights are out and it’s still pretty cloudy outside, I opened the curtains to let the light in. I finally got my first glimpse of seeing the leaves change colors.

So pretty. I kept wondering for a couple weeks now when things would start changing. Well, here it is.

I also figured I would snap a picture of our livingroom window. I used an exacto knife and created the witch and the victim. The rest is from last year’s dollar tree haul. Oh, and Pickle’s artwork from school is on there too.

Monkey and I are playing shadow puppets and eating peanut butter sandwiches. She also has been cooking up a storm in her play kitchen.

What do you do during a power outage to keep occupied?
