Mike decides to give Ed a Christmas present. He has the street leading to Outdoor Man renamed Ed Alzate Way. 

Ed does not like the present, leaving Mike stumped. While Ed is bartending at the VFW, Mike confronts him about the gift. Ed shares it is another reminder that he is not needed at Outdoor Man anymore.

After listening to Ed talk about the veterans at the VFW, Mike comes up with an idea. He enlists Ed to help Outdoor Man hire more veterans. Mike believes Ed's insight can benefit both veterans and the company.

Ed agrees to work with all Outdoor Man stores to hire veterans based on their unique skills and the company's needs. 

Kristin, Ryan, Kyle, and Mandy plan to see the Nutcracker instead of helping decorate the Baxter's Christmas tree. Vanessa and Mike decide to decorate the tree just the two of them like they did when they were first married.

However, as the decorating begins without them, Ryan, Kristin, Kyle, and Mandy quickly realize they would rather be part of the family tradition than see the Nutcracker. 

The family is enjoying decorating and drinking hot chocolate when Eve arrives with a new star for the tree. 

Kristin, Mandy and Eve write and sing a new Baxter family Christmas song for the family.
