Letters to Santa

Hope your Christmas was wonderful! The kids sent the letters they wrote to Santa to our newspaper, and they were published on Dec. 23rd.

Dear Santa,

Merry Christmas! I know I screamed bloody murder when I went to see you at Winter Wonderland, but I really do like you! I talk about you all the time at my house! I told my Mommy and Daddy I would sit on your lap to talk to you, but I lost my nerve when the time came. Maybe next year?!

I really hope you'll bring me a baby doll! I love them! I hope you'll bring my brothers and sister some nice things too!

We can't wait for you to come to our house!

Love, Mallory Felker (19 months)

*By the way, Mallory has been very traumatized by her visit with Santa. Every time someone has asked her about what she wanted Santa to bring her, she cowers and makes a sad face and says, "Santa. Scared."

Dear Santa,

I have been a good boy, and my brother and sisters have been good, too!

I want Sonic Unleashed for PlayStation2 for Christmas, please. Sonic is SO fast! And I really, really want that Sonic game for Christmas. I also want some underwear for Christmas - boxer shorts underwear. Isn't' that awesome?!

I will leave some milk and cookies for you on Christmas Eve!

Love, Drew Felker (4 years)

*And he was very serious about the underwear thing! No characters or anything - just plain underwear! I think the majority of it was the humor factor. That boy likes to make people laugh!

Dear Santa,

How are things in the workshop? I'm excited for Christmas, are you? Did you know I got to play the part of your wife, Mrs. Claus, in my school musical? Are your reindeer getting ready for the big night?

Please bring me a Nintendo DS and some make-up for Christmas. I have been good this year, too! My family read a book called The Autobiography of Santa Claus. We learned all about your life.

Merry Christmas! Elizabeth Felker (7 years)

Dear Santa,

hi! How are you? I am excited for Christmas, are you?

What I really want for Christmas is basically all video games. I want Ultimate Band and Lego Batman for my DS. I want Backyard Football 2009 and NCAA Football 2009 for my PlayStation2. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
