Elizabeth Shephard’s second grade class

Locust Grove Elementary

Dear Santa,

How are you doing? How are Mrs. Claus and the elves? I hope you are all doing good. I am giving you some cookies and milk and candy. Oh, and how is your favorite elf, Santa? I hope Rudolph is good.

For Christmas, I really want a happy new year with my family. I want to play with my family in a snowball fight. I love my family. They are nice. I want good thoughts for my family and I hope I get a present from Santa, maybe a little more presents. I hope you have a great Christmas.

I want a DSi. I won’t get board. I get Yoshi games.

I am nice because I help my brother and sister do homework. I help my mom start the car up and I put decorations up for Christmas.

Thank you so much,

From Brian Monteleone

Dear Santa,

How are you? How is Rudolph and the elfs and Mrs. Clause? I can’t wait to see what amasing stuff you put under my Christmas tree. For Christmas this year, I want a pet turtle because I don’t have a pet reptile. They do not try to get out of their cage. It does not eat big animals like mice or rats. I also watched videos about how to take care of a pet turtle. You can watch it swim around. By the way the type of turtle is called the red bellied slider. They are cool because their belly is red. I really hope you get me a turtle this year.

The next thing I want for Christmas is a Lego castle troll warship. My brother always destroys my castle and that causes me to lose my Lego pieces. Please, it comes with a dragon that has armor on. It also includes a dwarf that’s trapped. There is also a prison on the ship. It also has a missile launcher on the front of the ship that shoots three missiles. It also contains two little boats with oars on them. It also has a troll with drums.

The final thing I want is an Air vs. Land. I want this because I don’t have any remote controlled helicopters. I also want this because I do not have any that when you shoot, it would fall down. I want this because I don’t have anything that plays against each other.

I’ve been good because I’ve cleaned up almost the whole inside of the house. I’ve been good because I’ve helped my mom pick up my room. I’ve also helped my dad take care of my brother when my dad is sleeping.

Thank you so much Santa,

Aiden Meredith

Dear Santa,

How are you? I hope you are feeling good. How’s Mrs. Clause? Are your elves ready for Christmas day? Is Rudolph ready too?

For Christmas, I hope you bring a lot of cool things for me and my brother. I would like the new WWE Extreme. I would like it because I think it is so cool! There is a cage at the top of it and you can bust it open. It comes with the world championship belt. I hope I get this toy.

I also would like a 3D DS. I want a 3D DS because I never had a DS and I want one. Also, you do not need 3D glasses. There are a lot of really cool games like this game called Teken 6. I hope you bring a 3D DS for me. I also would like the new zombie lab toy. I want it because the things you can eat, they taste like candy. The candy is cotton candy and blueberry and the other one is watermelon.

I think I am on the nice list because I never hit people. Also, I act good. I am nice to everyone. I help my mom, dad and brother. I have never gotten coal and switches before on Christmas. I hope you put me on the nice list this year.


Keaton Edwards

Dear Santa,

How are you doing? How do you deliver all those presents in two nights? How do your reindeer fly? These are just some of my questions. What is your favorite  food? Maybe if it’s easy enough, I could make it.

For this Christmas, I want a scorpion. I think it would be a good pet because I could teach my sister and my little brother about scorpions. Also, it would be cool to show my friends. Also I think it could teach me responsibility. Would you please think about getting me a scorpion.

By the way, I also want a terrarium for the scorpion. I know I need terrarium so the scorpion has a place to live. Also I need a terrarium for the scorpion so I don’t get stung. I hope I get one.

I think I’m on the nice list because I do nice things. On December fifth I found a bell for my mom. I usually do a good deed every day. I hope I am on the nice list.

Thank you so much,

Dexter Vilt

Dear Santa,

How are you doing? How do your elves make all those toys? Have you got enough rest this year? I can’t wait to see the presents under the tree.

For Christmas I would like some new books. My mom really wants me to read a lot of chapter books. Plus, I need new books because my books I have right now are starting to get boring. Can you please bring me new chapter books?

Next for Christmas, I would like a nail printer. I want a nail printer because sometimes I have trouble painting my nails. My mom never has enough time to paint my nails. I really would like to get my nails done at a place in La Grange but my mom won’t let me because she is always saying it is so expensive. Can you please bring me a nail printer for Christmas?

Last for Christmas, I would like a few pairs of new shoes, so I can have new shoes to wear at school. The reason why I want new shoes for Christmas is because my mom doesn’t have that much money. I would really like new shoes for Christmas! Can you please give me these things for Christmas?

Santa, I’m pretty sure I’m on the nice list. For example, I’m always nice to people most of the time. Whenever I’m at my grandma’s house I help her cook in the kitchen. I work really hard at school and help out the teacher with stuff. Can you be nice and give me this stuff for Christmas?


Mia Rivera

Dear Santa Clause,

How are you? How are the rain deer? How are the elfs? And Mrs. Clause? I have a question. Can you please visit my grandparents and try not to damage their wall. They might be a little upset. Make sure you put a lot of presents under the Christmas tree! I will make sure that you get some good cookies and milk.

For Christmas this year I want a Barbie three-story townhouse because it lights up. I can have a Barbie neighborhood. If I don’t get it I will be unhappy on Christmas day. It has a lightup Jacuzzi. Also I love it.
For Christmas I also want a rainbow projector in my room because I love it. I like rainbows. I know my nephew Connor Talyet would like it too. I would turn it on at night and when I wake up in the morning there would be a rainbow in my room!

So please bring me these presents. I am pretty nice every now and then. I am on the nice list because I water the plants. I unload the dish washer. I feed the cats. I help my mom cook dinner. I sometimes take down the trash with my mom and make breakfast and lunch.

My friends think I am nice too. My family loves me especially my grandparents. They really love me! I work hard at school because I try to stay on track.  I do the best I can. Please get me these things.


Emily Marie Holliday

Dear Santa,

How are you? How is Rudolph? How are the elfs and Mrs. Clause? I want a digital watch because it keeps me on time. I don’t have a fashionably cute clock. I want a vest to keep me warm, made out of good material so it lasts long. I can wear the vest instead of a sweatshirt.

I think I am on the naughty list but I’m being nice by using manors, working hard and helping my mom.


Carter Murray

Dear Santa,

How are you and the elfs doing? My elf is behind the T.V. His name is Dennis. How much snow did you get recently? How long is the slay ride to my house? How do your randeer fly? How can you deliver all the presents in one night?

The first thing I want is a DS. You won’t get bored in the car. You will have a DS2. You can slip it in your pocket instead of carrying it. It isn’t big at all. Also you can take a lot pictures in a lot of fun places. I am also going to hand me down my leapster to my sister. If I had one I would like it a lot.

Dagedars looks like they are really cool looking and they can do lots of cool tricks. First of all, they can fly. They have lots of really cool paint designs on them. You can play with your friends.

I hope I am on the nice list so I won’t be getting on the naughty list. I won’t get coal in my stocking. I think I am a really good kid so bring me these presents because I share with my friends and try to be friends with everyone.

P.S. I Love Christmas.

Dear Santa,
How is Rudolph? How are you? How are the elfs? How is Mrs. Clause? I hope you have been getting some rest. Also I love it when the elfs start hiding and we get to find them. Also you get to eat candy for the countdown days in until Christmas.
For Christmas this year, I would like a DSi because it’s entertaining to play with. Also because my family is always busy they’re busy now setting up the Christmas tree. When I get home they will be busy putting orantiments on the tree. Then they well be doing something else which is carrying boxes into my room.
Also I would like a ipod for Christmas thes year because I can listen to music and also download games and take pictures on it. I think I should have a ipod because I think I’m on the nice list.
Dear Santa,
I would like a Monster High DS game for Christmas because I never he time to play with my family. Have a good game on your DS. Finally because so you have entertainment wall, you wait for something so we won’t be bored and bother are parents while they are talking to a adult. We will be entertained with are DS, DSI or DSiXL.
Why I think I’m on the nice list
I  think I’m on the nice list because I help put oramiments on the tree. Sometimes I say please and thank you. If I have a friend over I let them pick what we do first. Whatever they ask me to do I do, i help shop for things, and I help my mom cook.
Love Kaitlyn Brown

Dear Santa,
How are you? How are your elfs doing with you? How were the cookies we made for you last year?  I will make some cookies that are delicious this year. I can’t wait to see what is in those boxes. I love Christmas because of you and Jasis. I hope you have a good holiday this year.
For Christmas I would like a sled. A sled for Christmas is good so you don’t have to sled on your stomach in the snow. My old sled broke because it rammed in to a tree a lot of times. I push my brother off of the sled most of the time so I could save it.
I think I am naughty and nice because Santa said I am. One nice thing is I help people do their work like Colton. One naughty thing is sometimes I mess with my brother. A nice thing is I will never disturb someone. I hope I am nice. The naughty or nice but I said I was naughty and nice but it is a toy.
