A lighthearted look at a family and how Christmas at their house is changing. It is about the Wallace home. Marianne is the Mom who is all about tradition and the family always being home for Christmas. But her kids are growing up and going their separate ways. It is also about football and how their youngest son, Kevin, goes out for the team his senior year. How Marianne ends up helping the team more than she bargained for, how her husband signs her up at church to head the hospitality committee and how she tries to keep it all together, even though her Christmas seems to be falling apart. A true to life story with alot of smiles and good times. I really liked how Marianne and her husband Mike interacted during the story. It was a delightful read.
