One youngster wanted an X-Box. Another a flat-screen TV.


"My Christmas wish is to have the Packers go to the Super Bowl," said Eric Stanevic of Land O'Lakes.

While someare looking forward to what Santa Joe may bring - others are also remembering their favorite memories of the past.

We hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday season.
