Corey Takamura wants only one thing for Christmas: for her parents to get back together. However, Doc Tock, Corey's mom, has been spending a lot of time with their neighbor, Kyle Lee. Now Corey is afraid that Mr. Lee may be ready to propose. Corey has to get her parents back together fast! As she plots, she and her friends are also getting ready for the animal Christmas party at CARL (the County Animal Rescue League)--even though it means making treats for all the animals themselves. When the big day finally arrives, the Pony Tails get a wonderful surprise, and Corey comes to an important realization about her parents.
