The Rhodes family is a tight-knit, hard-working, loving and joyous clan who have always put family first. When grandpa James and grandma Jackie’s daughter, Makia, was diagnosed with a potentially deadly brain tumor leaving her unable to work and in need of daily care, they did not hesitate to take Makia and her kids into their 941-square foot home. Now with seven people living in this small dilapidated house, the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team arrives to brighten their spirits and build them a larger and safer home. Joining the team this week are members from the band Journey. Then, just in time for Christmas, 65 Santas stop by from the Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santas to assist in the demolition. Plus, as a very early Christmas present, the family learns their mortgage has been paid off.
