At the foot of the old rugged Tree

Micah Reitan

         dear Mr. santa Sir,
         Me is sorry to bug you again mr. Santa air, but it's me, Teddy, again. I 'c' you found my letter, cookies and milk, now that you made you way down my chimney I want you to no something, before you give me some presents.
         I no when I sitted upon your lap at the mall earlier this afternoon i told you that i wanted you to get me a new nerf football and a remote control car and a Bat Man action figure and a super-duper water soaker. . .for the summer of course. But that isn't what i really want mr. Santa sir. So i is writing you just to let you no that i changed my wants, i mean, i want a new nerf football, and a remote control car and a Bat Man action figure and a water soaker and all, but not as much as i want you to get me the following things. Please don't get mad at me, i won't change my mind ever again. Honest i won't.
         Mr. Santa, when you get home from the mall today could you bring back my best friend Kristen Lee? She used to live right next door, but she moved away to the hospital for a while. She don't live there none more. Mommy says she lives with Jesus now. So, i is wondering if you could tell me how to get there. . .to Jesus' place that is. Me and Steve down the street would like to play Bat Man and Robin with her some more. Her was the best kat woman in the whole wide world. Not to be mean or nothing, but Jenny Henderson just ain't the same.
         Another thing, when I was at sunday church school last week with Steve, we seen crying bald headed people on t.v. They is camping outside somewhere it is hot. Mommy says they were very very very very very very hungry and sick. So, could you give them as much Macaroni and Cheese they want so that they can grow more skin and hair?
         Also, i wish you would stop giving daddy that stuff he drinks at nite. Every time he drinks it he gets mad and all. He then hits mommy in the face. POW. Mommy crys be cause it hurts her lots, i don't like to "c" mommy cry.
         sir, Make Rick and his friend stop picking on Dawn because she is from asia. Dawn talks funny but i still like playing with her in the "Kansas wheat fields." I just wish Eric, Kenny and Bradly would stop picking on her because her eyes aren't round like ours.
         Well i gotta go to sleep Oh wait! One last thing, Mr. Santa sir, will you come to Christmas church with me? i would like that a lot if you would come with me and Mommy and Daddy and little baby sister Julia and big bruver Karl to church. You shouldn't have to work that night. Church is an hour you know. And it's really fun 2. We sing and pray and celebrate Jesus' birthday. It's a big fun birthday party. And unlike Rick's party, everyone is invited. And if you can make it, will you bring Kristen Lee along with you? i miss playing batman and robin with her. she is still the best katwoman on our block.

Sorry to bother you.

Teddy
