Michelle rubs hands with smiling five-year-old daughter Kaitlyn, as her little brother, Thomas, 3, toddles in behind the pair for a slice of the mandarin his mom has managed to peel with her free hand.
Behind them, eldest daughter, Isabella, 7, practices her figure skating routine on the living room rug, before dad, Jimmy, helps her try on her ice skates in preparation for her lesson in half an hour.
Happy and apparently quietly contented with their lot in life, the Jins look every inch the regular nuclear family.
What the naked eye doesn't see is a gentle little girl, Kaitlyn, who was born with a tragic shopping list of severe physical and cognitive conditions that rule the Jin's life.
Due to her myriad of serious health conditions, her parents, Michelle and Jimmy, sleep in shifts and Kaitlyn herself has slept, since the day she was born, in an infant's car seat.
She suffers from microphaly - a neurodevelopmental disorder - brain abnormality and gastrointestinal reflux, the latter of which dictates she sleep in a car seat to keep her semi-upright.
Until recently, every road trip, no matter how short, was a mission in itself with the deconstructing and assembling of Kaitlyn's heavy wheelchair in and out of their car.
That was all until Variety - The Children's Charity honed into view on the recommendation of a family social worker.
Now, thanks to funding help from the charity, the family was able to buy a special mini-van with a wheelchair accessible ramp.
And, also partly thanks to Variety, Kaitlyn will soon have her first ever bed - specially designed to keep her partially inclined to deal with her acid reflux condition.
"She wakes up through the night, every night, every three or four hours and she takes about another two hours to go back to sleep, so I don't even go to bed, I just stay up," said Jimmy, who has done the "night-shift" ever since Kaitlyn was born.
"Thankfully, we run a small online business from home, so we can be flexible. But having Kaitlyn in a proper bed we hope will have a significant effect on her general health, growth and well-being - maybe I'll get to sleep, who knows.
"We're so grateful to Variety and to the system that's helped us so much with Kaitlyn, as every day is a challenge to keep her healthy and happy."
Jimmy said the new bed can't come quick enough, as Kaitlyn - who, thanks to Garden City elementary, can attend school part-time - has long since outgrown the infant's car seat that's no longer safe.
"She can rock back and forth quite a bit in that seat when she feels like it," Jimmy added.
"We've been to sleeping clinics, so the hope is that we'll all, some day, get a better quality of sleep at night and that can only be good for her and everyone's health."
Considering the impact Variety has had in the Jin family's life, Jimmy urged everyone to get involved in any way they can in next weekend's Annual Variety Show of Hearts Telethon, taking place on Global TV, Feb. 16 & 17.
"(Variety) has done so much for us and made such a difference to our lives," he said.
