Santa came to the local shopping market today. He brought horses and a carriage, not enough snow for his sleigh, I guess.
Juss got to sit on Santa’s lap. He told him everything he wanted for Christmas, (except he forgot to add a game system, which is good, because he’s not getting one any time soon.) Then, apparently, Santa asked what Juss was giving Santa. Being a sharp boy, he said "cookies". Then, Santa wanted to know what Juss was giving his reindeer. Juss said that he said grass, but Santa wasn’t satisfied with this…I thought it was quite a fine answer though, and told him so. He said he was going to give Rudolph a huge among of grass, cause he liked him.
(Juss knows there is no Santa Claus, and all about the real St. Nick, but that does not dim his enjoyment. ;-)
After that, we went to see Music Man performed by Middle School students, which was just about like it sounds (no great surprises like the professional quality singer among the middle school cast of Oliver we heard last year.) But the children seemed to enjoy it. It was at Ping-Ping’s school.
