‘Dear Santa’ contest brings in many kids’ letters

Although the task of reading over the many “Dear Santa” entries was fun, The Rockford Squire staff had a hard time choosing only three winners. The first three letters to Santa listed here are the winners, and the remaining thereafter were just so cute we had to print as many as we could fit in! The three winners may come into the Squire office, 331 Northland Dr., to claim their NorthStar Cinemas “Cinema Cash.”


Erin Morgan, 5, personally delivers her letter to Santa to The Rockford Squire newspaper office. Morgan had a little help from mom with the writing, but chose the color of her marker carefully.

Dear Santa,

I would like a LaLa Loozy doll with a tree house and a bus. I would like a car, but not a big one. Kind of like Cam’s, but he has a jeep and I’d like a car. A Barbie car. And a cat women figure. I like your elves Santa. And I like your suit. Make sure you don’t eat too many cookies or you will have a tummy ache.

Erin Morgan, Age 5

Ashley Faulkner, 9, has plenty to say to Santa in her letter to him this season. Faulkner added some extra paper to make sure she had room for her comments. She reminded Santa to not eat too many cookies or he could have a tummy ache.
