It is Christmas time in Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle sisters are having their share of difficulties, from one who is overdue with a set of twins, one who happens to be in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town, and one desperately trying to keep the church Christmas program from falling apart. Then there is the former ousted director of the pageant trying to retake her former position. What else could possibly go wrong? Think food poisoning, kidney stones, and family secrets, and chaos turns into a hilarious holiday journey.
