Granny and Grandpa invite their grandchildren, Jimmy and Julie, to visit them for an "Old Fashioned Christmas" at the family farmhouse in Vermont where Granny grew up. It's not long after Jimmy and Julie arrive from California, that they become very unhappy and bored. "There is nothing to do here", they exclaim. There's no TV, DVD, Internet not even a telephone. Plus their Grandparents made a rule that no iPads be used!

Suddenly, a loud crash is heard above the grandkids bedroom. Jimmy and Julie are frightened. Granny and Grandpa decide to investigate. All of them carefully climb up the stairs into the attic with Grandpa leading the way, flashlight in hand. The light shines on the cause of the noise. Granny discovers her outdoor winter friends, Toby the Toboggan and Sally the Sled, have fallen over. With the help of Granny's old winter friends, Jimmy and Julie experience "The best Old Christmas ever!"
