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

Lost Lewis Smith
3 November 2014 | by Carolyndowning70See all my reviews

I watched this 3 times to see Lewis Smith. i guess he was on the cutting room floor. Lewis is the best contemporary actor I've seen since the day of big studio & big stars. I'd buy anything he does but the business is more interested in nepotism than quality of performance. The story line touched on real issues & confusion in blended families. Many hallmark stories portray realistic content but entertainment still needs to give an escape from some of the daily conflict. Inspiration is so much desired in a very difficult political & financial climate. More period/teaching story lines are great for taking us away from daily disappointments.
