But the most favorite thing of all I want is for my family to have a merry Christmas. That's all I want, Santa- you don't have to work too hard. Love, Nick age 7
(there were 270 letters to Santa. So many of them were asking for things for their brothers and sisters and their family...one wanted a go cart for his grandpa so they could go racing together. Plus they ask for stuff for poor kids and one kid said he didn't want as much as he did last year but he had been praying for everyone since 9-11.)

Dear santa, I want a ipod touch because it is so fun. And Dad and Mom won't get me one so I am asking you because you will get me one for sure. So I can count on you. Love, Shay Hill.

Jan said...

so glad the little darlings will be well armed. Are all the kiddies NRA in West?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

I like how they start out with the polite chit chat blah blah blah and then get down to BUSINESS! The AK47 and the pooping baby would be cool gifts. I hope Santa doesn't disappoint them!

Willym said...

think I'll open a gun store in the neighbourhood. They are a hoot particularly the two in whatever language they were written in!!!!

Hope you got all the baking, cooking and goody making done. Wish I could taste half of it.

baci e auguri di Roma

billy pilgrim said...

sageweb said...

Oh some of these are sooo cute..I love the little girl who wants balls for her dog..hehehe

Nit Wit said...

I thought in Texas the rule was no AK47's until you were 12.
I think Lacy wants a horse and 2 sets of horse shoes. I have no idea what a piktos is.
Shay may be pissed at Santa Christmas morning if he respects the parents wishes.
Orlando knows that every kid needs a Nievivagog, and 7 beusforu.
Libby wants Santa to surprise her. If he gives her a pooping baby and adds smell she might be surprised.
Natalie got one that cries real loud. I'm still waiting for the batteries to run down.

I can't believe how many 8 year olds want a laptop! What about Operation or Candyland? LOL I'm old school, I guess.

I still make my kids write a wish list for Santa.

I hope you have a great Christmas Jackiesue! Much love to you!

For my 12th birthday I asked for a .22. They refused.

Sling said...

Galt-in-Da-Box said...

Down there, they need to keep the kids well trained and stocked with ammo for the "immigration issues".
That's pretty awesome!
