The family has returned to the small crossroads town for the holiday season, and Dad has hitched up the sleigh and horses for a late afternoon ride. The departed sun is casting a warm glow over the sky and river surface, but the bundled passengers and horses breath tell us the winter air is cold and crisp. For this homecoming excursion only the farm dog has been left behind. He is an important part of this rural family, but the sleigh is crowded and someone must watch the house.
