Storyline

Widower Tom Baer, a school counselor, recently married school coach Cindy Noll, a widow. Their respective offspring gets along fairly well, despite different parenting styles, but as their first Christmas with all step-siblings approaches, each set is desperate to respect their own seasonal traditions, reminiscent of their late parents. Tom's father, retired preacher Joe Noll, and Cindy's mother-in-law (from her deceased husband, Dave), Evie, a businesswoman, each liked by both, hoped to bridge the gap, but when that fails, she returns home alone. Just that gets the kids reconsidering their pouting pact. Written by KGF Vissers

Welcome back, Dixie
21 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Christmas is jeopardized when a newly blended family can't seem to get together on how to celebrate the holiday. All is seemingly made well when the two kids from the dad's side decide to go with what the daughter of their stepmom wants, which is to spend the holiday in Boulder. Unbeknownst to them, that daughter has decided it will be best to skip Boulder and stay in town for a Christmas Eve pageant in which her two step-siblings usually perform. To complicate matters, the former mother-in-law of the wife shows up for an extended stay and has her own ideas. The heart of this typical Hallmark TV movie is Dixie Carter's performance as the grandma to the Boulder-loving daughter. As always, Carter is terrific. And she is nicely supported by John Ratzenberger as the fun-loving and very shrewd grandpa to the pageant-loving kiddies. Ratzenberger and Carter play off each other very nicely. A pregnant-looking Julie Warner is the wife being pushed and pulled by the three kids.
