Good Nap Most Christmas Days

For many years, as the gift opening started to wind down, my nephew would fall asleep on the floor.  I have quite a few pictures over the years of him doing this.  Some years his cousin (my daughter) is sleeping a few feet away.  There was something about the excitement of the day, the gifts, the food, and the warm room that inevitably led to a good nap for him.

We just him left alone and after a while, he’d wake up ready to eat. . . again.  Growing boys loved their food as much as their sleep.

Word for tomorrow – RISE.  If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word A Day”.
