An Evening of Christmas Fun

They line the family room floor: five kids including little man himself with several of his nephews and a niece. A couple of pillows press up against the already displayed presents under the Christmas tree. As they slumber the lights cast a colored glow on their smooth child-skin cheeks.

Popcorn, tangerines, and frosted cutouts. Charlie Brown and Emmet Otter. Sleeping bags, pillows, and blankets galore. Stories of Billy Budd and Christmases gone by. Giggles, jokes, and a few reprimands. Eventually sleep overtook. Papa took the end position and Nana slept between the two 3 year olds.

What could Holiday Inn possibly have to beat this?
