Standing Sentry for Santa

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
 Except for one sentry who kept watch instead;

 And mamma with her camera decided to snap,
 Grant settled down for a long winter's nap,
On Christmas Eve, David and I watched a movie in our sitting room upstairs after putting the kids to bed.  Grant wanted to wait up for Santa so we allowed him to stay downstairs on the couch.  When I went down to turn off Christmas lights for the evening, this is what I found.
He had his alarm clock on his lap so he would know when it was midnight.
It looks like he fell asleep before Santa got there.
Better luck next year, buddy!!
