    Dear Santa,

    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.

    Merry Christmas,

    Victoria
