Dear Santa: How is Mrs. Claus? I am doing fine. I have been good this year. I would like some more Play Station games like MBL, Crash Banticoot and Atlantis. I also would like rollerblades, a cotton candy maker, more Hot Wheels. My mom would like film for her stocking. My dad wants a K-State flag. We will leave you some puppy chow. Oh yes, I forgot … please bring me slippers, binoculars, and telescope. Love, Brandon Meierhoff, age 8.
