Naps are good. And...a Winner!

Sunday was a perfect day, starting with the light drizzle that came down all night Saturday night, turning the air cool and making it feel like it is now truly autumn, and ending with a steaming bowl of cream cheese chicken soup this evening. In between there was a lot of football watching, which is our favorite Sunday afternoon activity, some napping on the couch, some leisurely reading of the Sunday paper, and just some good family time.

Savannah and I were not the only ones that got a nap. This guy did too:



For those of you who cannot tell who that is, that would be Batman. And lest you think that we go out of our way to buy these kinds of toys for our daughter, I will put your mind at ease and tell you that it was a freebie out of the Cheerios box. For some reason he was selected today as the grand prize winner of a nap in my bed. She placed him with pillows on either side of him so he couldn't roll out, just like I do with her, and then covered him up with a sheet. Then she turned on the fan (remember when I wrote about our fan issues not too long ago?), closed the door, and then informed us that we needed to be quiet because Batman was napping.

We tried to keep it down.

So this perfect day is coming to a close, and it is time now to select a winner of the Starbucks gift card....

...and the winner is....

Kaley, Commenter #12. Congrats, Kaley! Email me with your address and I'll get it in the mail to you.

Happy Monday!

Who couldn't love that Batman took a nap in your bed...and had to have the fan on?
Kaley, you lucky girl you!! :) Congrats!

Gwendolyn said...

I used to find dolls or action figures taking naps in my bed on a daily basis. I kinda miss it. LOL

Wendy said...

I often find stuffed animals or various baby dolls taking naps in my bed, but they're laying on the pillows under the covers.

Congratulations, Kaley!

I've seen Batman napping all over the house, not just in the bed. Now, about the only thing that kind of startles me is the new cat. I'm still trying to get use to what sometimes looks like a stuffed animal moving around.

Kids are so funny how they pick their "things" for the day. Sometimes I think the smaller they are the better liked they are. Also much harder to find when they inevitably get misplaced!

Yay! Thank you Jackie! I will be thinking of you the whole time as I sip on my Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Have great day with Savannah and Batman :)

Jules from "The Roost" said...

Oh I remember the days of putting whoever was the favorite toy of the moment to bed! :) You are such a good mama to let her have a whole bed for batman :) And the fan is a must!:>)

Mmmm, Sunday naps.

Moriah @ Please Pass the Salt said...

Oh yes. Madeline puts all sorts of things to "nap;" turns out the light, turns on the sound machine, shuts the door, and then yells (loudly - which doesn't that defeat the purpose?) for all of us to be quiet for the toy/doll/animal.

Krystal said...

Oh, your Sunday sounded perfect! That is what we normally do too on Sundays after church! But not yesterday!

Savannah is so precious!

Love naps, especially Sunday naps.

My hope in Batman is now gone. Superheroes should not need naps.

Sara@ Butterville said...

What a hoot! We find toys in our bed all the time. And Congrats to Kaley!
Wish I ahd gotten a nap. I had 5 loads of laundry to do. Blehk.

My oldest daughter went through a Batman phase. She's the girliest girl you could imagine so it was a very strange phase. I look back at pictures of her 4th birthday batman party and I still think it was the cutest thing - my frilly little pink thing surrounded by the black and yellow batman decorations.

Your Sunday sounds like it was fabulous!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Isn't it funny how kids get attached to the oddest things...and batman in your bed--hey you could do worse ;)

Growin' with it! said...

you totally lost me after the remark about cream cheese chicken soup. oh now that is not nice. i will expect to see that recipe on here soon. i'm getting a cold and today something that delicious sounding is a must!

i'm off to take a nap myself now!

Rachel said...

I heart Sunday naps! Mine take place while I listen to 43 cars go around and around the track. Sunday Nascar naps are the best. I stay awake for the first few laps then sleep through the boring part in the middle of the race and wake up to see the last 100 laps or so. So relaxing!

I also heart sleeping with a fan. We even take it with us on vacation. I can not sleep without it!

Tracy said...

This sounds like something Ashley would do. I just love how these little "things" make me smile.

Michelle@Life with Three said...

We have that exact Batman -- I recognized him immediately. I'm a little ashamed to say that we bought the Cheerios for the express purpose of getting the Batman toy. Shameless, I know. But, it bought me a very cooperative son while I finished up the grocery shopping that day! ;)

ttm said...

Well seeing as how Batman fights crime and all I can see how he might need a nap. Thank goodness he has good friends like Savannah to make sure his sleep isn't interrupted!

Life In Progress said...

There's nothing like a Sunday afternoon nap! So glad you (& Batman!) got one.

Blessings From Above said...

Sounds like the PERFECT Sunday afternoon!

Jenn said...

I do hope Batman got a good nap!

Carolina Mama said...

We love Sunday afternoon naps. All four of us! :) ANd that soup sounds perfect.

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

Too cute...sounds like a perfect day!

jennifer@love,laughter,and lyrics said...

Avery loves to pat her babies to sleep. I find them all over the house - half covered in blankies or handtowels - face down and napping.

RosyRose said...

hi I'm Rose- so good to meet you, Don't you love when uninvited guests take over and you have to keep it down for them?!

mer@lifeat7000feet said...

Will you share your recipe for the soup? That sounds yummy!

mamajil said...

Naps are the best aren't they?! They are far and few for me but sometimes I just have to have one!! :)

I hope batman rested well! lol
