12 Days of Thanksgiving, Day Eight

I am so very thankful for naptime.

Yesterday, after going to the theater with our friends to see Madagascar 2, Hoss and I took a nap.

When we got home I was suddenly very tired, despite sleeping in that morning. Ok, so maybe 7:30a.m. is not really sleeping in to some, but its an entire hour and a half more than I get throughout the week.

I scooted Hoss up the steps to nap time. He was not very happy about it, but that was just a perfect sign that he needed a nap! He ran to his room, but I asked him if he wanted to go to Mommy's bed for naptime. He stopped mid stepped, turned around and ran into the other room. Even though he continued to be upset, he climbed on the bed and laid down, falling asleep within minutes.

I also fell asleep within minutes. Two hours later Donnie was waking me up.

It was a perfect Saturday afternoon nap.

If it wasn't for naptime, I would not have been able to get all that baking done! And I know what you mean about 7:30 being late, we made it until 8 Saturday morning and were amazed! Usually Daniel is up by 7
