An RSLS Christmas 

Piggyback Santa

A few weeks ago I was chatting with my mom on the phone, and she was laying it on thick.

"This will be the first Christmas since [Biggest Sister] was born [1949] that I won't have any of my children in the house on Christmas morning. I've only put out a couple of the Christmas Village pieces for decoration. I was going to make a strada, but there's no point for just your father and me." *Sigh*

So I offered that The Girl and I could stay over on Christmas Eve, since we're going to be out that way on Christmas Day anyway. She replied, "Well, that would be okay. Just let me know, because I'll have to put together the strada the night before..."

She made it sound like a bit of a chore. Little did I know that this just made her holiday. By the time we arrived, the house was covered with holiday decorations, including this Santa who got a seat on the stone pig. Christmas in New England!
