He did it!










Anyone who knows Carson or has read my blog for long enough, knows how much Carson likes to pretend. He loves to get dressed up in his pirate clothes, his cowboy get-up, or his knight armor and pretend. A while back, we went and saw How to Train Your Dragon, which we all really liked...especially Carson. Shortly after we saw the movie, we were browsing the toy aisle at Wal-Mart and Carson discovered a viking costume from the movie complete with a viking helmet, sheild and ax/hatched thing and had to have it. We made a deal with him that if he would save his money (20 dollars worth) he could buy it. So, since before Easter, Carson has been doing odd jobs for mom and dad to make some money to buy his viking outfit. This week, he finally got enough money to buy the toy! As soon as he had enough, we ran to Wal-Mart to get his toy...and he's hardly put it down since!
All of his saved up money. He even had some to spare!

Carson's mean look!

Carson even managed to talk my sister into dressing up in some armour so they could attack Christian.

Way to go Carson! That is awesome! Saving money is not an easy feat! Glad you got your viking costume! Blake has his eye on the same one!

AWESOME!!! We loved that movie too! Weston gets a kick out of saving his own money for things he wants...it sure makes it more fun when he finally makes his goal!
