A (not so) typical evening at the Nickles' house

10:00 pm - Lee goes to bed while Kristy stays up with Lydia for a while

12:15 am - The power goes out, just as Kristy was about to give Lydia her medication (no, Kristy had not been to bed yet). Kristy decides to try to wake up Lee rather than feel her way around in the dark holding an infant.

12:17 am - She succeeds.

12:20 am - Lee finds the flashlight.

12:25 am - Stephen wakes up

12:50 am - Everyone is in bed somewhere in the house

1:30 am - The power (and a number of lights and electrical devices) come back on - only mommy and daddy notice

4:00 am (or so) - Stephen comes in mommy and daddy's room and needs a "visit"

4:15 am (or so) - Lee gets back to bed from Stephen's room

6:50 am - Lydia announces to the household that she is ready for breakfast

I just have to say it: I love my family dearly. I'm thankful to be able to laugh at all this now - I was too sleepy to do so last night!

Recent Stephen funnies

Here are some funny things Stephen has said over the past couple of weeks:

  • We did that miles and miles ago...
  • While pretending to make cookies - "We need 2 cups of salt and 1 cup of cinnamon."
  • Either Lee or me: "Stephen, why did you do X?"
    • Stephen: "Because I did X."
