This is one of the reasons why I love West… Christmas time…I would say that at least 90% or better decorate there houses, yards, trees and shrubs…but the very best part is the letters to Santa in the West, it is just wonderful…so I am going to reprint some that made the paper…this time of the year the paper not only publishes them..they are not edited or spell checked….they are straight from their little hearts….

Dear Santa,
What I want for Christmas is 12 pony books and pink pig and that little tv and that game when you hit the ball. Santa, please don’t make a mess like last year, Love, paige 2nd grade mrs. Pratka’s class

This year there were 8 pages of letters to Santa…some that really got to me were two letters from a brothe and sister who at the end of their letter asked Santa to take flowers to their brother Adam in heaven….some kids asked for stuff but them asked Santa to be sure and remember to take toys to the poor kids…some asked him to be sure and not to forget the kids who lost everything in the flood….kids..they break your heart…

The West VFW and Ladies Auxiliary donated $5,000 to various organizations in west..pretty cool…Two births, 4 birthdays, 6 deaths. Two ribbon cuttings for 2 new business in west. both stores are fancy smancy gift shops…just what we need..I want some one to open the dairy queen back up…I miss my ice cream cones…and my occasional ‘dude’……

First thing I did when I got all hooked up at home was to go back and read alll my post and see the pictuers that sooner had added. Wow….I cant get over how much work he did to add just the right picture to the right post….how he found some of those pictures I will never know…Sooner…my dear sweet boy… are so great for doing that…thanks sooooo much..will never be able to tell you how much it means to me….and the pictures of my beautiful daughter…thanks again…and also to barbara who would read my email and then post them on to the blog….you are the bestest…as the price of fuel is so high..i hope that Santa left you coal in your stockings…… thanks again to you both….
