Richard and his lovely wife Megan have been together for three years, and have five children between them. However their holiday happiness has a couple of hitches: each half of the family have their own traditions and they don't like sharing them. The decoration budget is limited, so only one room is decorated, and the decorations are either old or from the drug store. Richard's traditional breakfast of pancakes from a mix, although tasty, doesn't have a lot of panache.
To make sure they cover everything, the Fab Five are staying over! The early holiday celebration also includes a holiday brunch for friends and family. When they arrive, the kids are shy until Jai shows them their practice Christmas tree. Yes, a practice Christmas tree (to test their decorating skills)! After going to a tree farm to pick out a real Christmas tree, the Fab Five get to work. Thom supervises the decoration of the tree and makes over the rest of the house, including turning the basement playroom into a real theater; Carson gets the kids matching PJ's and formal wear, and new outfits for Richard and Megan each get a new outfit too; Jai helps the kids create a play for the brunch and teaches them acting exercises, and has the family write wishes on rocks which they place around the tree; Ted teaches Richard and Megan how to cook better pancakes and eggs with bacon mixed in; while Kyan doesn't do much, as Richard's hair is good and he actually had a nose hair trimmer ahead of time!
To show how fortune the family is the Moons, Kyan, Jai and Carson go help build a house with Habitat for Humanity, before a rep from Housing Works - a organization for people with HIV/AIDS - arrives, and the family donates toys and things.
Everyone nestles in for the night, the Fab Five in sleeping bags ar the foot of the Christmas tree, and they all wake the next morning to presents (including a free babysitting job courtesy of the Fab Five) and a day of food, friends, and fun.
