Dear Santa:

I am writing you a letter because I am too scared to sit on your lap, so the mailman can bring you my letter. I have been kind of good this year, so can I please have a Maggie Doodle, Magic Smoking Grill and a Brady? Love, Audrianna Glover

Dear Santa:

My name is Chance Rampley and I'm 5 years old. I've been pretty good but next year I'll try my hardest to be better. For Christmas I would like to have a Harley-Davidson bicycle (if you have enough left).
