While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads

The students in Lisa Andersen’s third grade class at Heyburn Elementary wrote letters to Santa earlier this month. The originals were mailed to the jolly red elf at the North Pole, of course, but Mrs. Andersen shared copies with the Gazette Record and reprinted with permission here.

Students in Lisa Andersen's third grade class at Heyburn include Allison Cilburn, Kyler Jackson, Trace Wicks, Kolby Burton, Greyson Sands, Lexi Chappell, Rae McDonald, Dayton Hegge, Lance Hamblin (back) McKayla Spray, Caden Fitzgerald, Ricky Nelson, Kyra Wine, Taci Watkins, Darriene Todd, Alexa Hammack, Sarah Spence and Kyle Renfro.

DEAR SANTA …

Dear Santa and Rudolph,

Do the reindeer sleep in a stable or with the elves in the North Pole where they make toys? Are all elves short or tall? How many elves are there in the North Pole? How old are you?

I’m 8 years old. What I want for Christmas is a lego set for girls. Can I have a lot of candy and presents? Merry Christmas!!!!

Does Rudolph like carrots? I’ll put out some cookies and milk and some carrots.

Sincerely,

Lexi Chappell

Dear Santa,

Is it very cold at the North Pole?

Sometimes I act a little crazy, but I am not on the naughty list. And, by the way, how can you deliver so many presents? And eat so many cookies! All I want for Christmas are king size M and Ms! Oh and one more thing is, I would like to have an elf of one of yours if you don’t mind. How old are you? I’m 9 years old.

Sincerely,

Allison Cliburn

Dear Santa,

How many elves do you have? What do you do when one reindeer is hurt? How do you eat all the cookies? Do you travel with the Earth’s rotation so it is all ways night so you can deliver all the presents?

Do you have a Christmas tree? Don’t worry I’m going to make a toy list and please write back. I will write more questions on my other toy list.

Your friend,

Caden Fitzgerald

Dear Santa,

My dream presents are iPad, Kindle Fire, mp3 player. And can one elf give me a present? Hope you like your cookies and milk. And will you give Rudolph his carrots and tell him it’s from Alexa? And will you tell him to give me a present. Because I love him. And I will give him a present too!

Dear Santa and Prancer,

Is everything good and the North Pole? So are you stuffed from cookies? So what I want for Christmas is a Kindlefire. I want the temple of lights set. I want a Xbox 360. I want a iPod too. I want lego Indiana Jones the video game and a phone. So is Rudolph okay? Can I have a elf on the shelf too?

Love,

Kyle Renfro

P.S. I want a dirt bike too!

Dear Santa and Rudolph,

Tell your elves I said hi. Can you give me lots of candy? Give me lots of presents. Does Rudy have magic? Is it cold in the North Pole? Am I on the list?

Love,

Dear Santa,

What I want is Angry Bird books and sky landers. Santa, how do you eat all those cookies? How many elves do you have? Out of all your reindeer, I like Rudolph. Santa, you are a good man. Is your friend God?

Merr Christmas. You friend,

Dayton Hegge

P.S. I know you have a son named Arthur!

P.S.S. I should have said “May I.”

Dear Santa,

How many elves do you have? Do you get cold? How can you get to every house in one night? Could you give me a elf? What kind of cookies do you like? Could I get a lizard that can change colors and a watch that can tell the day, time people and the time.

Your friend,

Kyler Jackson

Dear Santa and Mrs. Claus,

May I have some trucks please? I will leave some cookies for you. Be sure you give some to your reindeer! I will leave milk. How many elves do you have at the North Pole? How many reindeer do you have?

From,

Ricky Nelson

Dear Santa,

First, thanks for Elfie. I like his smile, his cheeks are as rosy red as yours. Tell Elfie I said hi.

How many elf brothers and elf sisters does Elfie have? Elfie is so good at staying still. He won’t even blink! I’m going to miss my elf, Elfie. But I’ll see him next year. After all, he will keep you company after you get back from Christmas. You’ll be as tired as a dog.

If you have enough time, for Christmas I would like a white Zoomer dog please. Do you ever get tired of cookies? Do you ever get sick from all those cookies? You better brush your teeth good!!

Well, tell everyone at the North Pole I said hi!

Love your friend,

Taci Watkins

Dear Santa,

Do you have any backup reindeer? How many elves do you have? Do you travel with the rotation of the earth? Can I have NBA2K14 please?

Sincerely,

Greyson Sands

Dear Santa,

I know what I want for Christmas. I would like a giant stuffed animal penguin and a plasma car! I hope I get an elf this year. Do you like cupcakes or cookies? Does Rudolph like celery or carrots? And do you want milk? Does Rudolph like milk or juice? And maybe a tiny present from Rudolph. Will you give my dogs a present please? Do you like hot cocoa?

You friend,

Sarah Spence

Merry Christmas!

P.S.

Keep an eye on my brother Jacob!

Dear Santa,

Hi my name is McKayla. Do you like it in the North Pole? Are the elfs fun? I think they would be fun to play with! Can you give me a Kindle Fire please? Do you like cookies? I don’t like them, I love them! Can you deliver to my Dad’s house please, and a puppy. I would like a black lab or a Jack Russell cocker spaniel mix. Those are my favorite animals besides a horse or leopard.

Love you Santa! Tell Rudolph I love him too!

McKayla Lynne Spray

Dear Santa,

I want more rubber bands and could you leave an elf if you don’t mind.

How do you deliver presents in one night? About the elf, one thing is that I bet they work hard!

Well I know that you work hard so I should make a short letter. Have a good Christmas!

Your friend,

Darriene Lee Ann Todd

Please get me all the stuff I ask for. Can you get me somme tools to build a fort in a tree! Please?
