    She wants a puppy. Also a kitten. Or a dog. How about a cat? It should be fuzzy. PS: This letter continues on the back, where presumably she further details her various cat/dog suggestions.

  • The 'flattery will get you everywhere' approach

    This kid is a genius. I want to buy him ALL THE THINGS just for being smart enough to butter Santa up with compliments.

  • 'Is 39 things too much?'

    She’s not asking for TOO much. Just 39 things. Also let it snow, okay?

  • Don’t worry about the mess, we’ve got a maid!

    Just RELAX, Santa. Mom will get those “crums.” Let your hair down ... and let the toy bag fall open.

  • And one last thing ...

    I love that she wants both a $5.99 gift card AND a million dollars. Hey, dream big, kid.

    He don’t want anythang but it ain’t because he’s dumb. He’s sweet as pie, if you ask me.

  • Restrooms are that way

    Extremely polite? Check. Informative? Check. Apologetic and authoritative at the same time? Check and double check.

  • A little harsh, Isaac

    I’m sure Santa appreciates the diabetes warning, but what’s with the threat? C’mon kid, take a clue from the flatterer earlier in this slideshow.

  • How’s the missus?

    Those are some good questions, and it’s always nice to remember Jesus even if it's because of your acting duties. Well, good-bye.

  • I have a logistics question for you, Mr. Claus

    Best not to ask too many questions, Melanie. Over 100,000 happy children would agree, the true magic of Christmas lives in your heart.
