    Dear Santa,

    I want a iPod-touch for Christmas. And I need it so I won’t have to play with my mom’s phone. And I want a campus bag cup and hoody. They are pink with a blue paw print with UK. And last but not least Cookie my walking and talking dog that has a purple dog toy.

    Love, Allie H.
