The children of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie lead an extraordinary lifestyle, but in some ways they're just like every other kid in the country.
And just like millions of other American children, the Jolie-Pitt clan recently mailed off letters to Santa to pass along their Christmas lists as the holiday nears.

Jolie recently stopped by a small post office in the village of Littlebourne in Kent, England, along with her entire crew of kids, including 11-year-old Maddox, 8-year-old Pax, 7-year-old Zahara, 6-year old Shiloh and the set of 4-year- old twins, Knox and Vivienne.
People Magazine got the inside scoop about the trip from Fiona Lindsay, an assistant with the Littlebourne post office who was on hand when Jolie and the children stopped by.
"It was so cute. All the children sent messages to Father Christmas and were absolutely beautifully behaved," Lindsay said. "Just like any other kids in a sweet shop they were excited, but Angelina controlled them perfectly."
Lindsay said she was taken aback when she first realized Jolie was inside the post office, but that Angelina and all her children were sweet and friendly.
"[Jolie] was so polite and a really nice person," she said. "I was quite shocked at first but Angelina was so lovely I soon relaxed."
And the children were perfectly behaved during the visit.
"It was lovely. They were all very polite. They were just a bunch of gorgeous, happy kids," Lindsay said.
The post office assistant even got a change to interact with the kids for a while and make some recommendations about what they should do while they're in England.
"The children bought a packet of sweets each, plus a few toys and some magazines, and we ended up having a general chat about how they all were and what they were going to eat that night," Lindsay said. "I suggested they pop over to the fish and chip shop across the road as it is a shame to come to England and not have some. I just hoped they liked them."
