My name is Victoria. I have been a very good girl this year. I cleaned my room and even made my bed. What I would most like for Christmas this year is an art set. I would also like a tablet, an X Box 360 and a DDS. My house is the white one with a brown roof and no chimney. I promise to leave a card on Christmas Eve. Please say hi to Rudolph for me.

I have been good this year. I want a Razor Go-Cart, spy gear, a Next Generation toy shotgun with shells, and an Air Warrior sniper Nerf gun. Pretty please!
How are you doing? I don’t know if I’ve been naughty or nice. I’m wondering if you can say hi to Bif the elf for me, ok? I want a Nintendo 3DS for Christmas. Okay Bye Bye! I love you Santa Claus.
Dear Santa, I need a new toy box because I am going to need it to put my presents in. I want a John Deer Tractor to play with, a new calendar because I didn’t have one. I think I would have a TV. in my bedroom because I don’t have one. I don’t leave anything for Santa but I want something else. I want a table to set my TV. on.
