Sami is so thrilled to hear he gets a Christmas stocking that he gives me a hard, long hug. I ask what he wants for Christmas, and he says "Money!" Why? He says it's to pay and put in his owl bank. I think it's because the other day at the store I told him he needed to bring his own money to buy a cookie.
Then he says he isn't going to tell me or Santa what he wants. I say he has to tell me if he wants something, so he says rope. And I suggest a cardboard box, which he decides is a good idea so he can make a puppet show. (But he doesn't want puppets!)
