Dear Santa Claus,
I can’t wait till Christmas morning. I’ve been good, but I’ve been bad. I want the movie of Pocahontas, a set of walkie-talkies, a barbie.
Love, Lauren Olmsted
P.S. I am a spy, so I would like a spy kit.
I would like some blue finger nail polish. I would also like lots of makeup.
I am nine years old. Thank you! From Niki Fanning

From Timothy Becker
P.S. Write back.
P.P.S. I hope the reindeer aren’t sick.
I want a 410 shotgun and a sega and a bee bee gun and you can throw in some other things.
I want a boom box, a snowmobile to share with little Ed and four tickets to Florida to visit my aunt. Thank you for the legos last year.
Sincerely, Evan Herter
