In this story it's about Christmas time and Samantha wants to help decorate the house, but a professional decorator has been called in and she ends up using the things she has made just in her room, feeling quite upset.
Then it turns out her Uncle is going to be coming with a woman, Cornelia, and everyone wants everything to be special for her, again leaving Samantha feeling left out of things.
She also wants a certain doll in a nearby toy store, but feeling she can't ask for it since she gave her other doll to Nellie (who didn't have any at all.)
Then Cornelia comes and she turns out to be quite different from what Samantha expected and they all have a really great time together. Samantha has made presents for people and they all like those, and she gets a special present from Cornelia.
A very pleasant story in the series with nothing major going bad at all and a good time for everyone in the end.
