We’ve gotten to know The Middle‘s Heck family pretty well this year. We’re familiar with the quirky kids – Axl’s (Charlie McDermott) got a knack for walking around in his underwear, Brick (Atticus Shaffer) whispers to himself in an odd voice and Sue (Eden Sher) has mastered the art of failing…at everything!
But most endearingly, we’ve witnessed how their parents, Frankie (Patricia Heaton) and Mike (Neil Flynn), make sacrifices – sometimes of their own sanity – to guarantee that their family has a lifetime supply of love with Midwestern charm.
On behalf of her brood, Frankie sends us this warm (and frank) Holiday video card that’s full of the wit and dry humor that we’ve come to expect from the supermom.
New episodes of The Middle return to ABC on Wednesday, Jan. 6 at 8:00/7:00c. Until then, you can still get cozy with the Hecks on Wednesday, Dec. 23 and Thursday, Dec. 24 at 8:30/7:30c!
