All I want for Christmas is...

Santa doesn't have to wonder what the first-grade students in Wendy Todd's classroom at Paul Banks Elementary School want for Christmas. The youngsters' letters make it clear what's on their wish lists. And they aren't just thinking of themselves. There are inquiries about Mrs. Claus, concerns expressed about Santa's elves and even questions about Santa's longevity.

Dear Santa ...

My grandma has her decorations in the window now! If you have it, may I please have mocassins and a cheetah stocking hat please? How is Mrs. Claus? I am taking very good care of your elves.

Sincerely, Lawson Alexson-Walls

How do you stay alive forever? Can you please get me a macaroni penguin hat and a cardboard house? I love your elves.

Sincerely, Katrina Marshall

I like Rudolph. Can you please bring me Power Miner Legos?
