S: A wonderful Christmas full of memories
FC: Christmas | 2010 | Christmas is a time of joy, | A time for love and cheer, | A time for making memories to last | throughout the year!
1: Dear Santa..... | My name is Landon Kyle Simpson and I am 4 years old. Thank you so much for the gifts you brought me last year. I'm trying very hard to be a good boy so I can get a lot of presents. Will you please bring me a penguin stocking, a camouflage trampoline, a police motorcycle, a desk to do my homework on, a trumpet, and a fourwheeler. I'm going to make you an apple cake and leave it for you under the tree. I love you Santa! In Jesus name, I do. Love, Landon Simpson
2: Dear Santa Claus..... | Mommy says we will be leaving cookies and milk for you and some carrots for the reindeer under the tree. I think you would probably rather have apple juice and the reindeer would rather have chocolate (which are two of my favorites). So, I'll leave you a glass of it and some chocolate too. If you could leave a few cookies for my Papa, I'm sure he'd appreciate it. Please don't forget my big sister, Riley. I'm sure she'll be sending her letter with what she wants. Thanks, Santa Claus! Please tell Mrs. Claus, the elves, and the reindeer I said Hi! Love, Reese | Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas! My name is Olivia Reese Watkins and I am 2 years old. I have been a very, very good girl this year! My Mommy and Nene tell me that you are really nice and bring presents to all the good boys and girls for Christmas. I love to put on make up! This Christmas, will you please bring me a vanity like my Nene's that I can sit at and play with my makeup? And some makeup and dress up clothes would be great too! I love to play in my Mommy's high heels! Oh, and just in case you need a few more ideas, I also looooove Play-doh, baby dolls, puzzles, and Dora and Elmo movies.
3: Dear Ho Ho..... | My name is Slayton Mark Simpson and I am 16 months old. I try my best to stay out of trouble, but I am a very curious little boy! I loved all my presents from last year. This year, I would really like a fourwheeler (like my big brother) so I can try to keep up with him. Also, I would like anything Sesame Street. Elmo, Big Bird, and Ernie are my favorites! I enjoy throwing and catching balls. Any ball will do - I love them all! Please bring me a Choo Choo train and my own pair of boots. Thank you so much Santa! Love, Slayton Simpson

17: Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads. And Nene in her kerchief, and Papa in his cap, had just settled their brains for a long winter's nap.
18: When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, Papa sprang from his bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window he flew like a flash, tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below. | Landon Kyle

20: Riley Su-Ann | When, what to his wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer. With a little old driver, so lively and quick, he knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, and he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name! "Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donder and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now, dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"
22: As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky. So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, with the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too. And then, in a twinkling, Papa heard on the roof the prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As Papa drew in his head, and was turning around, down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, and he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack. His eyes-how they twinkled! His dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.
23: The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath. He had a broad face and a little round belly, that shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly! He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, and Papa laughed when he saw him in spite of himself! A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, soon gave Papa to know he had nothing to dread. Santa spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk. And laying his finger aside of his nose, and giving a nod, up the chimney he rose! He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, and away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight, "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
25: Dear Santa, please define good.
26: May all your Christmas dreams come true
