One night last week Rob made a big pot of coffee, lit the fire in the fireplace, turned out all the lights in that area of the house, and lit some candles. We made us a cup of coffee along with some of the older kids while the little ones pretended with their little cups and sat in the living room enjoying the calmness of the room.
It was such a nice evening to just sit their in the dark enjoying one another. Some sat on the floor by the fire whiles others laid in our laps cuddled together. It was a peaceful time talking with one another.
There must be something about the darkness with just flickers of light that quieted the voices of everyone. Oh how, I enjoyed that evening. It was a nice time of relaxing and enjoying one another. That is not something that happens very often in a home with 8 little people ranging in age from 10 years old to almost 5 months especially with 6 of them being boys
