And by the way I would like to have night vision SO! much, so I promis to do my best to be good. So … MERRY CRISTMAS!!!!!
Yours truly, Rylan

Dear Santa,
How are you? I hope that your elves are very hardworking this year! I have been nice to my brother, and done my chores. I do what my mother says. I’ve also been good in school.
I’d really like some multiplayer wii games, so that my brother Evan and I can play together. I’d love to have an electronic battleship game, so the family can play together. I’d like for you to get my brother an electronic bank, because the bank he has doesn’t let him take out his money. Last but not least, I’d like to have the whole book series of Percy Jackson and Redwall.
I thank you very much for taking notice of my letter. I hope all kids get what they want this year!
Yours truly, Ryan

Dear Santa Claus,
How are you? Is your wife O.K.? I have been very very good this year. I have done my chores and helped lots of people. I don’t want to put to much pressure on you, so I’m only asking for 5 gifts. I want a 3DSxL and 90,000,0005 bucks and a free year suply of ever lasting flavored bubble gum and a trip to Hawaii and finally a highly power jet pack. Hopefully it’s not to much pressure. If it is don’t push you or the elves to much. Even if you can’t I’ll still have a little surprise for you.
Your’s truly,

Dear Santa Claus,
How are you doing? I just wanted to inform you about what I am doing this year. I am going to give Mia (My three year old next-door-neighbor) my old toy horse. I’m also going to give my old stuffed animals to Goodwill. I’m always helping my parents and family and do all my chores. All I want for Christmas is to be with my family and a science kit. Thank you for your time and pactience.
P.S. I’ll leave an extra cookie ;)
Yours Truly,
Savannah Legg

Dear Santa,
I have tons of questions but I’m just going to go with this … I’ve been working hard in school and seek. Plus, I have been reading books with at least 300 pages and made it into chorus! I’m kind of lonely sometimes other than my super duper anoying brother Jake. My elf on the shelf finally came. I thought it would never come.
It would be nice to have a new scooter and a million bucks along with a trampoleen, an 800 story house and a jet ski. Oh and the one thing I want the most, my family (except Jake).
Thats all I want you to know for now. All I can say now is merry christmas.
your old pal

How have you been? I wanted to tell you that I have been very good this year. There will be lots of milk and cookies for you. Please do not skip my house this year. Not saying that you ever did. And if you could give me some of your toy’s.
For Christmas if you could please give me a Kendle fire, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Third Wheel, and Exploders gun wich is pretty much a gun but with balls instead of bullets that bust open whenever they hit something, and an Exploders reload, and that’s it.
So please give me at least those four things, and I don’t care what else you give me.

Dear Santa Clause,
How are you? I am incredbly half normal and half excited. Well, at least I am normal though. Thease days, I’m trying to be nice to my friends and family. (Even the people who are being mean to me. They need some holiday sprit, too) It’s the holiday season! Lots of people need it! Everybody should be nice to each other! Not only because its the holiday season, people should be like that everyday! They’re just being extra nice because its the holiday season. I also trying to not fight with my brother. We fight like every hour!
This Christmas I want about 4,6, things. The top 3 from my list is a art kit I saw from Michel’s, some money about 25$ to 30$. And also a mood ring. The rest are art supplies and stuff like that. Also, a sewing kit. I love embroidery. Pretty much, that’s it! There are some other things I want but the things I really, really, want are thease things.
Thank you for knowing and reading this. Again, thank you!

Dear Santa,
How have you been? My teacher says you and the Mrs. Went to Washington, D.C. on vacation. Did you have a good time? What did you do? My class did a project on posting you on a picture of D.C. to show you went there. My teacher said I did a really good job. In fact, I have done a lot of good things this year. For instance, I help out with my baby brother in the mornings, which is incredibly stressful.
What do I wish for, you ask? All I want is for you to visit the nice folks in the U.S.A. That is my wish (and maybe a few candy bars).
So, I told you about what good I’ve done, and what I’ve wished for (don’t forget the candy bars!), so all that’s left to say is: Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year!

Dear Santa,
I hope you have had a nice year. As you know Holly has been wathing me. Please tell her I think she is the best elf on the shelf in the world! I think I should be on the good list because I am nice to everyone in my class even if I don’t like them very much. I’v been sharing a lot of my new beads with my little sister, also. I’m also helping my friend, Elise make Christmas presents for her family. What I really want for Christmas is an art set with colored pencils and paint. I would like a Kindle and some American Girl outfits too.
Please have a holly, jolly Christmas!

Dear Santa Claus,
I hope you don’t get cold in the North Pole. Here are the two reasons why I have been such a good girl. One reason is because I help my mom do work. Another reason is because I’m helping my brother learn to talk.
The first thing I want is a Y Fliker. The second present I want are tickets for four to go all around India for my family. The third present I want are two Santa dollars. The fourth present I want is a golden retriever puppy. The last present I want is for my special ed brother to talk.
Santa I hope I can come to see you in real life. Make sure all the elves are working hard. I hope to see presents from you.

Dear Santa Claus,
How are you doing? How are the eleves and Mrs. Claus? I am doing just fine. I have been helping out at the Light House at my church this year. At the Light House we give food to people who do not have it.
For Christmas I would like a scooter. If I get one I would like it to be light green or bright yellow. If you can not make one in that color than it would be fine if it is pink. I would also like a tiny boxer puppy. Can I also have a elf. I know they are suppost to watch you and make sure you are good but it seems so cool to have an elf. I would also like 600 dollars prleas. Can I also have some red suspenders?
I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Dear Santa,
Hi, How are you doing?
I have been respectful for my parents. Can I tell you something? Well, one night when Ollie didn’t come he couldn’t get up because he had a gameboy that he couldn’t lift. That’s why he didn’t come.
How I’ve been respectful. When my parents told me to get a shower, I did. I also shared some of my stuff.
Hopefully you don’t think that I’m over bored with the things I want. 1. Clothes for my dog and size small 2. teacher things 3. baby clothes
Remember what I did!!!
Love, Madison
