Noah and Paul

"I love Christmas and the feeling I get on Christmas morning opening presents.  I think all kids should have that same feeling.  But I know some families don't have money for presents, so I donated my Birthday money to the Christmas Bureau. I hope some kids now have the same toys as me at Christmas."
