"This is my sister Sophia, and she has been the best sister ever!" Logan Brown, 8, of Glen Ellyn tells the man in the red suit.

Sophia looks at her twin brother and jokes, "He has been naughty!"

Then the pair get down to business, telling Santa Claus they'd love to find basketball shoes for Logan and a trampoline for Sophia at their house Christmas morning.

Tonight's the night for Santa to show whether he'll make good on requests like these, made recently at Yorktown Center in Lombard.

Abby Tubacki, 8, of Westmont asks Santa for an Apple iPod Touch and a Nintendo 3DS game system.

Her sister Hannah, 10, asks for an Apple iPod Touch, too.

Alexandra Engstrom, 5, of Villa Park is in a quandary. "I don't know what I want for Christmas," she tells Santa.

Don't worry if you haven't had a chance to get your requests in. Santa, who apparently doesn't need much turnaround time for his reindeer-propelled trip around the world, will greet kids until 5 p.m. today at Yorktown and is keeping similar hours at shopping centers around the suburbs.
