Ashley's jump rope broke recently, so one of her birthday wishes was to get a new one.
Every time we went to the store, she looked around the jump rope isle.
Little did she know I had one waiting in the closet for her.
Living in the Swamp has made us appreciate the small things.
Being a poor college family, we don't have money for big presents,
and our kids have been surprisingly happy with the small things we give them.
Sweet Ashley was just glad to get something new
and be the star for a while.
Since neither of those things happen on an average day.
Then they all went outside to try out her presents
and have fun together.
