Charles and Linda Wellington
First Appearance: Season's Meetings (Linda Wellington: December 5, 2003; Charles Wellington: December 6, 2003)
When Ki's parents unexpectedly go to Australia for Christmas, Nick brings his girlfriend along as he heads home for the holidays. Nick's parents are fairly simple folk, and their son definitely takes after them. Charles Wellington is a police officer with an occasional flair for practical jokes and a twisted knack for playing Monopoly, while Linda is a teacher with her own strange sense of humor. The two currently live at Nick's childhood home with their two dogs (Roxie and Trixie) and one cat (Chessie). Nick's sister, Lori, occasionally returns home between semesters of graduate school.
