Dear Santa,
I was good this year, but I don’t know why. I will leave you cookies, and I’m not sure I’ll leave the reindeer anything. Would you bring me Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, and a Nerf gun? I don’t know what I want you to bring the other people in my family.

Dear Santa,
I have been good all day year long because I’m nice to my friends. I’ll give cookies for you, Santa, and I’ll leave carrots for the reindeer. I hope you bring me new presents. Bring me some American Girl dolls and jewelry for Christmas. Myles will get some new baby food and toys, and Macy will get some new babies for Christmas. And Sadie will get some new bones, and for Daddy, he’ll get some watches, and for Mommy, she’ll get some jewelry too.
