Christmas Decorations and Santa Claus

11 Dec

 20131209-014402.jpg Oh boy.  That human daddy of mine just digs himself deeper and deeper this time of year.  Mommy asked him to take out some decorations for Christmas.  Maybe it’s just me but I don’t think the leg lamp is exactly what mommy had in mind.  He tried to fight for it saying that it was a classic and came from the movie, “A Christmas Story“.  He continued by saying that if it was good enough for Ralphie’s dad then it should be good enough for him.  Way to go daddy.  You need a shovel to dig yourself deeper into the hole?

I just bet you that all mom heard was blah, blah, blah and blah. She was patient and she was kind.  She let him make arguments over the said leg lamp.

I don’t know about you but that’s the way moms seem to be.  They get quiet and listen while you dig the hole bigger and bigger.  Just, you know, letting you stumble over yourself.  I watched and tried not to snort because I knew it was coming.  She said, “Listen Ralphie, if I dared you to stick your tongue to the frozen pole, would you do that too because everyone else was doing it?”  She’s good.  The leg lamp was put back in the attic.


But you see, daddy doesn’t learn that easily.  Mom told him to put up the tree while she went out shopping.  For some reason, I just don’t think that this is what mommy was talking about.

Needless to say, mom was out for about an hour.  I know she thought she was going to come home to a tree… just a tad bit bigger than this I’m guessing.

Let’s just say that daddy was batting two for two this weekend.  So, our tree and decorations really didn’t get worked on like I thought they were going to.  And the discussion about actually putting up a tree took place.  Tree or no tree.  Because someone – looking innocently – knocked over the tree last year.  That keeps coming up for some reason.  I don’t get it.  The tree got tired and thirsty so it took a nap.  That’s it.  Really.


Let me tell you a secret though.  This weekend, mom had her iPhone unlocked and I was just looking at the pictures – yep that’s what I was doing – snorts looking a pictures.

I came across a person in her contacts that I couldn’t believe!  Mommy has the direct number to Santa Claus – thud piggy down.  So when the humans tell you that they know people that are important – it’s true.

I told Hemi and Mouse Girl about this contact in mom’s iPhone.  They couldn’t believe it and thought it was a joke.  We called the number and put it on speaker phone.  OMP (oh my pig!).  All of our mouths fell open.  It really was Santa Claus.  We were all shocked.  Mommy really does know Santa.  We *have* to be good now.  What if she sends him pictures or calls him herself?

Just in case, I’m off to clean up my pig pen of a bedroom.  Hey, I gotta be on that good list this year.  I have a big stocking to fill!

    That’s a good idea to clean your room…just in case. You can never be too safe when it comes to Christmas presents!

      Snorts – I couldn’t believe it myself Auntie Sharon. It’s actually the big guy – Santa Claus. AND, you can leave him a message of your Christmas list. I was astonished! XOXO – Bacon

    We no longer put a Christmas tree. I put it the year Doggy moved in, but the place where the tree goes is where Doggy likes to sleep during the day. The moment he saw the tree there he wasn’t happy at all, he would insist on sleeping under it and would knock everything down. He won, the tree is gone.
    Gotta love that leg lamp.

      See, that’s what I blame our tree fiasco on – it’s where I wanted to be – snorts. I don’t think we are doing the tree route this year. I overhead mom/dad talking last night. Hopefully they will put up what they were talking about this weekend. I will definitely be sure to get pictures of it. Dad’s leg lamp – snorts. You gotta love him! XOXO – Bacon

    HAHAHAHA…..I love that your Dad actually DID “put a tree up” although it wasn’t QUITE what your Mom had in mind. We watched that movie with Ralphie and the leg lamp last night – we laughed the entire time…..I bet Santa is gonna bring you LOTSA stuff this year Bacon because I know you’ve been an extra good piggy……right? RIGHT??????

      Snorts – Of course I’ve been good my friend. And if I haven’t, I’ve been good at it – snorts. Don’t you just love Ralphie – “You’re going to shoot an eye out!” That is one of dad’s all time favorite Christmas movies – thus the leg lamp. He tries to bring it out every year around this time. It’s a hoot. XOXO – Bacon

    Your daddy is a comedian. Plus he will probably have to live in a dog house soon.

    Love and licks,

      I wonder if that is why he got a heater and air conditioner put in that dog house of his? He’s always in it? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      LOL – I should post a picture of his stocking – snorts. That’ll teach him for attempting to be a comedian this time of year. XOXO – Bacon

        Oh yes. Mommy is often telling daddy that all of these comedians are out of work and he’s *trying* to be funny. It’s a riot with them two humans in the room. XOXO – Bacon

    I think the tree your Daddy put up is perfect.. 😀 Of course I might have mentioned that we are lacking festive-ness and just have up a foot and a half ceramic tree. It works. It makes me smile! I think we are going to have to call that number!

    • PigLove

      12/11/2013 at 9:27 am

      You so need to call that number and leave a message of what you want for Christmas. It’s a hoot! I’m working on my list this coming weekend. I like the lights for Christmas – forget the tree, just hang the sparkly lights for me please. XOXO – Bacon

    Look on the bright side… at least now you won’t have to write a letter to the North Pole. You can speak to the Big Man directly!

    • PigLove

      12/11/2013 at 10:18 am

      This is true. But it also means that mommy has a direct line when I’m bad :0 As if that happens – snorts. I’m walking on hooves – literally – around here to make sure I stay on the good list. XOXO – Bacon

    Your mom has the direct number to Santa Paws? Wow, that’s because she is a superhero, right?

    • PigLove

      12/11/2013 at 11:17 am

      It must be! You are so right my friend. I was shocked to see it in mom’s iPhone. AND, it looked like she had called it previously. I wonder what she was talking to Santa about. Heck, I wonder if daddy knows for that matter! You think there’s something going on there? XOXO – Bacon

    • PigLove

      12/11/2013 at 4:59 pm

      Apparently not – snorts. He is so digging himself deep this year. I can’t wait to see what Santa brings him – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Your daddy has quite a sense of humor…’ve got to love that NAUGHTY idea!!!!!

    • PigLove

      12/12/2013 at 8:20 am

      Snorts – he is quite the catch! There’s *never* a dull moment around the Hotel Thompson with him around. That’s for sure! XOXO – Bacon

    How do you hang ornaments on that tree? Do you draw them on the wall? LOL. That one made me giggle. My daughter wants one of those leg lamps. She loves that movie. Bacon I am sure you have been a very good pig. That is pretty cool your mom has Santa’s number.

      Snorts – Dad is off his rocking horse with that so called ‘tree’ of his. Get this – I heard mom/dad talking last night. We are doing a tree this year. We are doing something better! I can’t wait to share with ya’ll on Monday. It’s perfect for the Hotel Thompson 🙂 And no, the leg lamp is not part of it – snorts. Although dad would like it to be. XOXO – Bacon

    We agree with The Dancing Rider…..your daddy does have a great sense of humor. ( and perhaps a lump of coal in his stocking)

    • PigLove

      12/12/2013 at 8:26 am

      Snorts – he’s going to get something in his stocking – that’s for sure! He never lets us have a boring moment here at the Hotel Thompson. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh dear, I think your daddy needs to pick up his game! But Bacon I’m sure you have nothing to worry about on the Santa front, I mean the tree incident was last year and we all know the list gets rewritten every year. You should be fine now 🙂

    • PigLove

      12/12/2013 at 9:24 am

      What a sigh of relief. I thought that tree incident was going to follow me for life… well it seemed that way with daddy bringing it up again this year. But, I don’t think we are doing a tree this year. And this little oinker is so happy with what we *are* doing. But ya’ll will have to wait until Monday – we have to get it up this weekend. 🙂 Mysterious huh? XOXO – Bacon

      12/13/2013 at 9:19 am

      Gotcha! I think we are *finally* decorating this weekend. It took the humans long enough to figure out what we were going to do! XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
