santa. >> you didn't know who was watching you. >> and this is my brother and i when we traveled to the alps at the local walmart. we are in our christmas best right there. >> my tradition that's awesome, and thanks, everybody, this really hurts. my mom used to deny she did this, but i found proof going back to the archives. we were forced to dress alike on christmas. i played the role as the middle child and jenim had a lot of issues because of that. jim is the oldest. no, i didn't dress you like that every year. we're all wearing mock turtlenecks and nobody had the guts to wear mock turtlenecks. and again, three best. then we chose to wear these tuxes. we decided to do that. >> but you kept the cummerbund.
>> the proud father would stand at the base of the stairs with a camera and watch the kids run down every year. one year it was the best, because after they had opened up all the presents, one of the kids, peter, saw in a christmas tree there was a letter from santa. and it was a poem, and when they started reading, they didn't know what it was going to lead to. eventually it led to their first dog. watch. >> peter, mary and sally, too. i can't say how proud i am of you. there is one gift that wouldn't fit on my sleigh so i am going to deliver it another way. >> sometimes when you look around you'll probably thrive around town to pick up a friend
who goes under your bed. you can name him tommy, teddy sam or fred. >> and your parents will get used to your voice after you pick up the puppy of your choice. yeah! >> that was a great year. >> what kind of dog? >> a golden retriever, blond like all of us. >> what a special christmas. >> you did that every year? >> that's a great tradition. >> and in just a little while we'll be sharing ours as well. >> but first, more music. we're going to celebrate now with opera singer renee fleming. she'll be performing "silver bells" from her album "christmas in new york." here it is. ♪ city sidewalks, busy sidewalks ♪

day parade, and you thought it's going to be nice out. >> it was snow and wet snow and raining. nobody expected it and we were completely unprepared. but to see 3 million people lining the streets looking with such joy at everything that was happening, it was very inspiring. >> andthis album is fantastic. it's called a crossover in the english language. it's been on the billboard charts for a while. explain your approach. >> once we established it wasn't going to be an orchestral recording, i thought let's do something classic. i thought, i love the multi genre approach because there's all these fabulous styles of music. we collaborated on this disk with kelly o'hara kurt allen
fabulous colleagues. >> from broadway to jazz to opera, you do it all. you also sing in german, czech and russian. we have a lot more for you on "fox & friends" christmas. our next guest is as charming as a cactus. don't miss the grinch straight from our studio. >> plus we asked for your kids' christmas wishes, and a lot of you have cell phones and a lot of you sent us really cute stuff, like this. >> what would you like santa to bring you for christmas, maddie. >> i want a dog and a cat. >> the cute wishes pouring in from across the country. ...on its own. so let's do something about it. premarin vaginal cream can help it provides estrogens to help rebuild vaginal tissue and make intercourse more comfortable. premarin vaginal cream treats vaginal changes due to menopause

♪ ♪ cut it out. >>see you tomorrow. ♪ ♪ suffering from the flu is a really big deal. with aches, fever and chills- there's no such thing as a little flu. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. attack the flu virus at its source with prescription tamiflu. and call your doctor right away. tamiflu is fda approved to treat the flu in people 2 weeks and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash,
or signs of unusual behavior stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. ask your doctor about tamiflu and attack the flu virus at its source.

merry christmas to you. >> merry christmas to you. >> this is such a meaningful project that's been going on since 1993? >> 22 years this year. >> knowing that 60,000 children will really be receiving the gift of goodness. why do you want to do this time and time again? >> what it is, we've got 60,000 that's going to iraq. we will collect about 10.2 million this year for children in 110 different countries. but i believe that the children of the world god made us and created us and christmas is about god giving. god gave his son to this earth to take our sins and if we are willing to put our faith and trust in him, he'll forgive us of our sins and heal our hearts. so christmas is about god giving. the bible says that god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall have
everlasting life. we ask people to take a box and fill it with toys for a child. you have school supplies in here, a doll and things for the hair pencils and pens and toothbrushes. >> we see the result of this. it's a glimpse right of the greatest gift we have in christ, but when kid open this gift. look at this picture here. pure joy. reverend, this is what's happening across the globe. >> and it's been -- we ask everybody that packs a box to pray for the child who will get the box. no one -- i don't know where the person's box will go, but god does. god will answer the prayer of one righteous person. can you imagine 10 million people praying for 10 million children what god will do this christmas in the hearts and lives of these children around the world? you take the refugees in the middle east. about 70% of the refugees are children, and they have lost their homes they've lost everything that they've known and loved that's left behind,
and they're afraid, they're cold, they're scared. when you can give a gift to them, the joy and the hope that it puts in their heart that somebody out there loves them and hasn't forgotten them. >> you know what, when the kids pack it up they really have children their classical in their hearts, and sharing that is so important. i have to think your dad had such influence on you and your spirit of giving and loving. how is he doing? >> he's 96. he's doing fair. it's bain hard year for him. he's slowing down but his health is still pretty good and he meets with family and friends people come by to see him every few days. he's staying connected but he's just moving a little slower this year. >> well, aren't we all. i think a lot of people can say that, but not slower in heart at all. you have 10 grandchildren. >> 10 grandchildren. >> how are you celebrating
christmas this year? >> we have solomon in the army and he will come and spend christmas with his family. >> what is krour me sayyour message this christmas? >> that god loves sinners and god is willing to forgive sin. god will fill your heart, he will love you, and he'll take the pieces of someone's heart and he'll put it together and make sense out of it. there are so many people out there that feel the things they have done, they'll never be forgiven, that god can't forgive them. >> no matter what they've done? no matter what i've done this week? no matter how bad i've been? >> many people don't think god will forgive them. he will but you have to come to him through jesus christ. no one has taken our sins except christ. when he went to the suffered on that cross for us he was buried with our sins but
god raised him to life, and he will come into each and every heart that will trust him by faith. >> what a message to share and truthfully what a gift to give to children across the globe. reverend, we thank you. best to your dad. a big hug to him this christmas. merry christmas to you. steve is over with another friend of ours scotty mccreery, with some cheer. >> from just a few short years when we first met him on "american idol," scotty mccreery has become one of the hottest stars, and we're happy to have him back this year. welcome back. >> nice to be here. >> where do you spend christmas? >> we go home in north carolina so we have a good time. >> what are the traditions in the mccreery house that in your head you say, that says christmas. >> as much as i'm on the road these days i see grandparents and cousins for the first time maybe all year.
my sister is in red. >> is there some food that a loved one prepares that says that's how we have christmas at our house? >> as long as my grandma makes the ham, i know it is the holidays. >> you cut an album a couple years ago. it was a christmas album. >> did i. >> but it's got to be kind of weird, because even though they play it at christmastime you record it during the summer, the fall. >> we did it smack dab in the middle of the summer so it's a little different when it's 90 degrees outside you're wearing shorts and a t-shirt singing "let it snow." it works out. we tried to decorate the place all christmassy and bake christmas goods, so it worked out pretty good. >> it's hard to say, i'm dreaming of a white christmas. >> what are you going to do for us today? >> we're going to do a little elvis right now. >> ladies and gentlemen, let's get to it with his album

and may even put you in the hospital. prevnar 13 is used in adults 50 and older to help prevent infections from 13 strains of the bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia. you should not receive prevnar 13 if you've had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine or its ingredients. if you have a weakened immune system, you may have a lower response to the vaccine. common side effects were pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site. limited arm movement, fatigue, head ache muscle or joint pain less appetite, chills, or rash. even if you've already been vaccinated with another pneumonia vaccine, prevnar 13 ® may help provide additional protection. get this one done. ask your healthcare professional about prevnar 13 ® today. instead of mailing everyone my vacation photos, i'm saving a ton of time by posting them to my wall. oh, i like that one. it's so quick! it's just like my car insurance. i saved 15% in just 15 minutes. i saved more than that in half the time. i unfriend you. that's not how it works. that's not how any of this works.

place, to die for you so that you might have life. does that make sense? >> it does. and there's an innocence about children too. you can see christmas in their eyes and see the wonder and the joy that i get to see that now. and the second chance you get to see through your children's eyes. >> clayton if you could think of any way that god could possibly come and give us that second chance, that would be acceptable to us how about coming in the form of a baby? >> sure. >> a baby who doesn't stand in judgment over you and say if you don't do this i'm going to get you, but rather a baby who just begs to be cuddled, to be held. >> i love that. >> and what about for those people who say hey we've lost that vision, we've lost that idea. it's about santa claus and presents? >> well, i would say it's okay that it's also about that. those are very human things. and god came to us in a very human way. a very messy way. what could be more human than a dirty diaper or a stable? >> sure. >> and stockings are very human. and we celebrate in a human way.
and i think god and the angels are up there very happy that we're very happy. >> well, we're very happy that you're part of our family. you have been for years. we love ya. >> thanks very much. it's so strange. brian used to glaze over when i would talk about spiritual things. now you're like engaged. we've come a long way. >> and you've come a long way. >> thank you. >> nice to have you here father. >> let's get back to some music. remember her? america fell in love with jackie when she was only 10 years old and a contestant on "america's got talent". >> she's now 14 and her voice is more beautiful than ever. singing "the christmas song"."

>> family friends and traditions, but what's the real reason we're celebrating today? >> here with us with his christmas message is our friend and former arkansas governor and pastor mike huckabee. >> i'll be home for christmas is more than an old bing crosby song. it's the sentiment that most of us feel as we approach december 25th. no matter what we do or where we are, there's just some kind of a magnet that pulls from inside of us that makes us want to be with our family and be home for christmas. now, i travel a lot. and as it gets closer to christmas i try to think of all kinds of alternatives to getting home, if my flights get canceled or weather leaves me stranded some place i just don't want to be. i've had some close calls of almost getting stranded in new york around christmas when i wanted just to be home. but while i've gotten home later
than i wanted i've always made it home for christmas. no gift under the tree is as good as that for me. and my thought of the first christmas about how joseph and mary had seen their plans to get home get all messed up as well. i'm sure they wanted to be back in nazareth for the birth of their baby, but instead they ended up stuck in bethlehem. though i'm pretty sure weather and airline schedules had nothing to do with that. now, they didn't realize it, but they were having an appointment with destiny because centuries earlier when the prophets had predicted the birth of the messiah, the city for his arrival wasn't nazareth or even jerusalem. instead it was the sleepy little village of bethlehem. and it was an inevitable that their baby was going to be born there. i'm sure they suffered some anxious moments trying to figure out what they were going to do if they didn't get home. after all that's where their families were.
that's where they would have support and comfort and be surrounded by those who could help make the birth as easy as possible. instead, all of their hopes and prayers couldn't sway the will of god who had determined long ago how and where his son would be brought into the world. there are times in our lives when things go exactly according to plan, but when god has a bigger purpose we can possibly imagine, none of our efforts no matter how well-intentioned or practical, will ever be able to change his course for us. we might be able to get the airlines to change our flight, but only god can control the actual journey. and no matter how strange or irrational it might seem to us there really is a purpose to the path. oh, yes we all want to be home for christmas. and i hope you and i both make it. but being where god wants you to be, that is to be home for christmas. so here's wishing your christmas
to be your best ever. >> she considers herself a singer, reality star and red neck, jessie james decker is here to share her family christmas story with you. and she's going to sing for us too. and you heard them earlier recreating a christmas classic on the harp. the sons of serendip have one more surprise for us when we come back.
