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.
