Carter and Santa


Carter was ready for Santa this year. He went to visit him during the day on Monday and showed Santa his Wal-Mart Wish Book with the stickers on all the items he liked.

Say what you will about Wal-Mart. The wish book was a cool idea (and a good marketing one, as well). It gave Carter a visual reminder of all the things he liked and it made me remember being a kid and looking through the Sears and JC Penny catalogs at the pages and pages of toys. I would carefully make a list, listing the item and page number of each thing I wanted. Just like Ralphie, I had to have a specific item each year. Good memories and hopefully Carter will have them too.

  1. Phillip you got a good lookin’ kid there! Looks like he was ready to tell Santa what he wanted this year. It’s sorta cool to come to your site weekly and see how your son has grown. Odd have been friends for a few years now but have never really physically met. Maybe someday!! LOL Oh yeah congrats on the new addtion on the way!! Merry Christmas to you and your Family!
