JOPLIN, MO.--- The Boys and Girls Club in Joplin had a very special guest this afternoon. Old Saint Nick stopped by to take pictures with the 250 children at the club. Smiles were abundant as the kids hopped on Santa's lap to ask for that very special Christmas present. Santa says electronics like video games and iPads are at the top of many wish lists. Kids also asked for traditional gifts like dolls and toy cars.
"Everyone of these kids is special. Their wants and wishes are absolutely important to me," said Santa's Christmas Elf.
After their visit with Mr. Claus, each kid received a goodie bag filled with treats and toys.
