Ms. Andreatta’s Class
Dear Santa,
How are you doing? I would
like some makeup, a micro-
phone, some dolls, a mermaid
tail, and a necklace.
I love you, Chloe Walker
Dear Santa,
Tell the elves hello. Christmas
is my favorite holiday.
Love, Dawson Tincher
Dear Santa,
Hi Santa! How are you do-
ing today? Can you please tell
Mrs. Santa I said hi? Tell the
reindeer I said hello. Are you
having a good day today? I
love you. Do you love me? I
want a Nintendo DS. I want an
iPad. Love, Kaci Davis
Dear Santa,
How are you doing? Is Red
Nose the Reindeer real? Are
Vixin and the other reindeer
real too? How do you deliver
all those presents in one whole
night? If you are really real
then how come I do not hear
any bells?
Love, Bradlee Coker
Dear Santa,
Hi Santa! For Christmas I want
a phone. I want my step-dad to
come home. I want a new dog.
I hope I get an iPod touch. I
love you and merry Christmas.
Love, Autumn Withers
Dear Santa,
Hi Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus.
How do you deliver all the
presents in one night? How
is the North Pole? Are the
reindeer doing ok? Do you take
any vacations? What is your
real name? For Christmas I
want a stuffed animal. I want
a Wuggle pet. And I want all
of the Webkins. How did you
name your reindeer? Do you
have any daughters or sons?
Do you have time to play or
pet your reindeer?
Your friend, Riley Barham
Dear Santa,
How are your reindeer doing?
How are you feeling? How is
Mrs. Santa doing? Have a safe
ride. I hope you are doing well.
I have some cookies and milk
for you.
Love, Angeline Anthony
Dear Santa,
Tell the reindeer hi for me
Santa, ok? How are you doing
Santa? Tell the elves hi for
me. How is Mrs. Claus? Is she
doing alright? Are you watch-
ing the elves? Is it snowing
outside? I want an iPod.
Your Friend, Jeremy Gossett
Dear Santa,
Hi. What is your real name?
What is Mrs. Santa Claus’
name? How are you doing
right now? Do you like the
cold? Are you going to bring
me some presents? Can I have
an iPod touch and a real four-
wheeler?
Love, Bailey Holloway
Dear Santa,
Hello, how are you? It would
be good to see you. I have
been good this year. I have
cleaned up my room by my-
self. For Christmas I would
like to have presents. I would
give dad a big fast race car. I
want a stuffed animal.
Love, Bobby Hardy
Dear Santa,
Hi Santa. How are you doing?
I will give you a present. How
are you feeling? I will give
you cookies. I would like a
new video game. I would like
a monster truck. I would like a
zombie land.
Your friend, Dorian White
Dear Santa,
Have I been nice or have I
been bad? How are the rein-
deer doing? Can I have a board
game? Can I have a football?
Can I have a color wheel?
Your friend,
Timmy Humbert
Dear Santa,
Hi Santa. Are you having a
good time at the North Pole?
Can you tell me how many
reindeer you have? I bet you
have over a billion elves help-
ing you deliver all the presents
to the kids that have been so
nice. Do the elves and the
reindeer and you make the
presents? Well the reindeer
probably don’t because they
paw things so they can’t pick
up the presents. But if they did
they would drop presents or
their paws would squish it.
Your friend, Carson Huseman
Dear Santa,
How do you deliver presents
in one night? All I want for
Christmas is a paper jam and
a penguin friend. How do you
eat so many cookies in one
night? Do you have a baby?
Do you have a baby reindeer?
Love,
Andrea Banegas
Dear Santa,
Hi. How are you going at
the North Pole? Am I on the
naughty list? I want a dirt
bike please. I want a iPad too,
please.
Your friend, Jacob Carlock
Dear Santa,
I hope you are having a great
day with your deer. Have fun
with your pets. Give them
treats, make your pets happy.
Have fun with the kids and
make them proud, happy, and
have a good day. Make grown-
ups happy. Give them hugs and
make them laugh. Say funny
stuff and tell them to have a
great day.
Love, Tristan Gonzales
Dear Santa,
Hi Santa. How are you doing
at the North Pole? Can you tell
the reindeer hi for me? How
do you make toys? Can you
get me a Wii? Can you get me
Disney Universe? How do you
fly the sled? How do you fix
the sled?
Your Friend, Gary O’Bannon
Dear Santa,
Please can I have a PSP?
Please can I have an elf? Please
can I have a horse? How are
you doing today? Are you busy
today? Do you have a baby
reindeer?
Your friend, Haydn Linville
Dear Santa,
Hi. My name is Hannah
Seaton. How are you doing?
Are the reindeer and elves do-
ing fine? I think I would like an
iPhone and the big high-tops
for Christmas. Do you like the
North Pole because I think it
would be awesome and you
would get to see Rudolph the
Red-Nosed Reindeer and elves
and also you know what the
presents are. How do you de-
liver the presents in one night?
Your friend, Hanna Seaton
Dear Santa,
I hope you can get me a laptop
for Chrisgtmas if you still have
money left over. I’ll try to stay
green at school and be a good
kid at school. I am a new kid
in school and...so....I saw lots
of my old friends since kinder-
garten. And my friend Kaci has
been in my kindergarten and
1st grade class. For Christmas,
I want a laptop.
Your friend, Ryan Klein
“One of my favorite Christmases was 2008. I had breast cancer
surgery in June of 2008 and was half way through chemo treatment,
which lasted 53 weeks. My family decided we needed to do some-
thing fun – to meet half way between [Mineral Wells] and Colorado.
We rented a cabin in Ruidoso [New Mexico] for one week.
“For a Christmas tree, we found a branch from one of the fur trees
and stuck it in a wine bottle. I was bald as a doorknob and everyone
wore hats because I had to wear a hat. My grandsons fed the wild
‘reindeer’ from the porch. They wanted to pick up the ‘reindeer’ poop
to show their friends back home Santa found them in Ruidoso.
“It was old-fashioned, with no shopping, and that was our treat –
being together,” she said. “It brought to mind how very fortunate we
are to spend time together with family. It was the best Christmas gift
of all.”
Penni Beauregard

Dear Santa,
How are you doing? Are you
having a good time at the

Sincerely, Rishita Babu
Dear Santa,
Hi Santa. How is Ru-
dolph the Red-Nosed
Reindeer doing? Is
he fine or is he not
fine? Santa, what
is your real name?
Is Mrs. Claus ok?
What color are your
elves’ clothes? Are
they green, blue, red,
yellow, pink, purple,
or brown? Do the

an oak tree? Do the

night? Love, Hay-
leigh Warren

“Doing my windows [at Witschorke’s Antiques and Collectibles.] I’ve
done it about 20 years; every year is different, doing the windows
for the public to enjoy. It’s a lost thing now. It’s just stuff that we
fi nd, some of it is from Leonard Brothers. They always did elaborate
windows, too, so we picked up some of their stuff.”

"We were at my grandmother's house, a big Victorian home there
in Mineral Wells, and she had 10-foot ceilings so the Christmas tree
was ... all the way to the ceiling. There's about 40 of us and we're
in this living room and there's wrapping paper everywhere and it's
really the only Christmas that we all got together and did Christmas,
Thanksgiving being our bigger holiday. Just a fond memory of us all
being together, I think she made 12, maybe 15 dozen yeast rolls.
They were rising everywhere in the sunroom; just pans and pans and
pans of rolls rising everywhere. It was the fi rst time I fi gured out
what a bourbon ball was, candy; I didn't realize it was going to be
so potent."

“The movies – I like ‘Jingle All The Way,’ ‘Home Alone’ I and II, our
family watches it almost every year. I watch almost every Christmas
movie because we got the DVDs from the library. My husband likes
‘Christmas Vacation,’ but I feel a little bit of offense because it is not
really for kids. Sometimes it’s a little rough for the kids. I like the
new one I just saw, ‘Christmas Mail.’”

was cold and he ran out in shorts and fell down and said, ‘Why is it
cold?’”

“My favorite Christmas memory was when I was a kid going to my
Grandfather’s house in Post. Every Christmas, he would always take
myself and my two cousins out to the bunkhouse on the ranch. There
was a pot-bellied stove in there, and he would keep the fi re going
and cook the Christmas meal on it. He would pull the Chuck Wagon
up there and cook out of the Chuck Wagon.”

“I’m from Mexico, so when I came here in 1980, I saw the Christmas
lights. I miss them now. They used to have these little lights, spar-
kling through downtown, and, to me, that was just magical. That’s
the Christmas I remember. It was in the ‘80s, I was just a tiny tot
back then. The Christmas lights when I fi rst came to Mineral Wells,
to me, was just like, ‘Wow,’ to see the decorations. The lights and
the parade, that was big when I fi rst came here. I grew up where we
didn’t have Christmas like this.”
