Life isn't always sweet, even for girls called Candy. When Candice Parker married the love of her life on Christmas Eve, her romance with Gerald Ford became a family affair. Over the years, they have faced their trials together, bringing them closer as each challenge is met and surpassed. The holiday season still terrifies her, but she is surrounded with family and friends ready to see her through the difficult winter months. This year, when her mother Lanelle's failing health threatens to spoil their holiday, Caroline is eager to help. Candy agrees to bring in Carol's old friend Holly to take on the care of the ailing matriarch, while hoping to finish her education and keep the household strong. In true Ford family form, chaos is not far behind Holly's addition to the staff, and the house is once again faced with tough choices that could spell disaster for their delicate balance. Is there room for another couple within the walls of the Ford residence, or will this year see the end of Candy's Christmas spirit?
