Christina Gretz is determined to make this Christmas merry for her husband and three children, even as their landslide-ravaged home cracks and creaks around them. They have endured snakes slithering into their house, popping noises awakening the children at night and huge cracks materializing in floors, ceilings and walls, all because of the earth movement destroying their home. Anxiety has become a way of life, with emergency escapes planned in case a bathtub crashes through a floor into a basement bedroom or a ceiling suddenly gives way. "I am determined to give these kids a normal Christmas and give them good memories. These kids deserve to be happy and not have this stress," Gretz says.
