What is the one gift you are hoping Santa will put under the Christmas tree this year?

Gracie Rose

C.C. Loughlin, Grade 2

I would really like to have a stuffy Elf. It’s like an Elf on the Shelf, but you can touch it and cuddle it. You can squeeze it, too, and have it sleep in the bed with you.

 

Rebekah Adey

C.C. Loughlin, Grade 2

I hope it’s a Nerf gun. David, my brother, has a few of them and he’s always shooting me so I want to be able to shoot back at him.

 

 

Anderson Murphy

C.C. Loughlin, Grade 2

I would like to get the video game “Super Mario Maker.” A lot of YouTubers have it and it looks like a lot of fun.


Jake McCloud

C.C. Loughlin, Grade 2

It would be a remote control car. I want it to be a Mustang. I think it would be fun to play with and it’s on my list.

 

Sydney Rowe

A FlipaZoo figurine. It’s rubber and you pull it one way and it’s an animal and pull it another way it’s another kind of animal.

 

James Wayson

C.C. Loughlin, Grade 2

I would like a little toy school bus to play with. I really like to play with school buses. I like wheeling them all around the floor.
