A warm, comforting home where everyone feels welcome:

"There's nothing better than spending time with our big, crazy family on Christmas."


Christmas music:

"Give me Celine, Perry Como and 'Charlie Brown Christmas' and I am set."



"A white Christmas is the best Christmas. And it always puts me in the mood to watch the classic White Christmas movie with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. Irving Berlin is a genius."


Christmas Eve service at church:

"Our Christmas Eve service is at 11 p.m. Everyone comes in their pajamas. We sing carols and then everyone lights their candle at the end of 'Silent Night,' just as the clock strikes midnight."


Holiday baking:

"The kitchen is the heart of our home. I love baking up holiday goodies with my kids."
