All festive, Brooke and Ridge admire the Forrester tree and he says it has come full circle. She wishes they could all be together. He says he will always be there.

She is the one Logan they can trust in the kitchen. Steffy and Liam arrive, as well as Wyatt, Ivy, Coco and RJ. As Viv and Julius arrive, Eric thanks them all for coming and helping out at the breakfast at the shelter this year as it means so much to him. Katie and Wyatt exchange glances as she parades around the room serving the hors d'ouevres. He manages to find a time to sneak a kiss in. Brooke tells her later that she saw them and she thought they wanted to keep it a secret. Steffy accepts some champagne but nixes drinking it. Liam gloats that this time next year they will be a freaking family. Donna is the last to show and totally shocks Brooke and the rest. They have a regular little Logan family reunion. She says Ridge made her promise the surprise. With tears in her eyes Brooke gives Ridge a big kiss. Donna hugs Pam in the kitchen and says admit it, she missed her. Eric tells Ridge that every year is special but this year with Thorne home and him and Brooke together it is more special than ever.

He asked this beautiful creature to marry him and she said yes. RJ is shocked and joins in the merriment. Even Thorne wishes them congratulations. Rick tells Maya that is all he wants for his mother – true happiness and it looks like she has it now. Lots of hugs and kisses all the way around. Eric tells the crowd that he would have said he was the happiest man in the world but now he thinks maybe Ridge could beat that and he could not be happier. Difficulties pass and he is happy they can all be together. Brooke counts out the names, Forester's, Logan's, Spencer’s, Savant's, all together making new memories and that is what makes it so special. Eric drags out a table of eggnog while Brooke thanks them all for coming and making this day special. Julius leads them in “Silent Night” as each join in while Eric tinkles the ivories.
