Hallmark is sending Candace Cameron Bure and Lacey Chabert down your chimney again this Christmas.

Cameron Bure, a Full House vet who currently anchors Fuller House, will play estranged twins who decide to trade lives in Christmas Sister Swap, EW has learned exclusively. Cameron Bure is certainly a familiar face in the Hallmark holiday universe, appearing in 2016’s Journey Back to Christmas, 2015’s A Christmas Detour, 2014’s Christmas Under Wraps, and 2013’s Let It Snow, and 2008’s Moonlight and Mistletoe.

Chabert, of Party of Five and Mean Girls fame, will star in The Sweetest Christmas as a struggling pastry chef who advances to the finals of a gingerbread house-baking competition. Like Cameron Bure, Chabert has five Hallmark holiday movies under her belt, as she also starred in 2016’s A Wish for Christmas and in 2015’s A Christmas Melody and Family for Christmas, 2014’s A Royal Christmas, and 2012’s Matchmaker Santa.
