This 1970s home movie captures scenes from the daily lives of the Strait family. The family travels to Indianapolis, Indiana, for the holidays. Young children Jennie and Austin take advantage of the wintry weather, making snow angels and building igloos. After the children enjoy a first round of opening presents on Christmas morning, the extended family gathers for a second celebration later in the day. Back home in Texas, Jennie celebrates her fourth birthday with a Snoopy-themed party. Later, the Straits travel to south Texas for a vacation in Brownsville and South Padre Island.
