Here's another Ashley story...
When Ash was young she decided she wanted a big teddy bear... we thought ok, we'll find her one for Christmas. We began to look around for one... while we were looking we found out that she meant a BIG teddy bear, one bigger than her. I think she was about 4 at the time.
We couldn't find one in our town anywhere. So off I go to the big city. After looking at many toy stores I finally found one...not a cheap one but a BIG one. I called my brother's and sister and we decided to chip in together to get this for her.
I make the purchase and take it to the car. I was just going to lay it in the back seat of the car but I didn't want it to get banged around. So, I put it in the passenger seat next to me and buckled it in. You should have seen the looks I got...
I found out that this teddy bear is still around....and very well loved if you know what I mean. I'm sure he was, he became a pillow to lay on and a sled to slide down the stairs...but he definitely was Ashley's buddy for quite a few years....money well spent.
Thanks for letting me ramble,
