A Day with Marly Kate

Lee's friend, Marly Kate, came to spend the afternoon with us on Monday. He was so excited and began to show her all of his toys as soon as we walked in the door. She was a good sport about all the boy toys he showed her and played with them. After lunch, she had other plans. Lee came running to me and said, "Mom, we need 2 blankets and some clips." I asked what kind of blankets and clips and he said he didn't know, but that's what MK told him to get. So I asked her what she wanted. She said she needed 2 small blankets for her "wedding dress and wedding hat." The clips would hold them in place. So I got her dressed and ready for the wedding. Little did I know that she had instructed Lee to get shoes on and wear his nicest coat. So Lee appeared in the appropriate attire and was ready for their wedding. MK had recently been to a wedding and remembered lots of details. I alternated between getting teary eyed and laughing hysterically at these two.

MK told Lee how to hold her hand. They appear to be dancing, but this is how MK said to stand while they were getting married.
This is when she instructed me to say "Lee and Marly Kate Latta Hayes." Then she wanted me to throw flowers at them while they walked out of the church.

I'm thinking this is at least high school graduation video material.
They have made it to the reception at the fairgrounds and are now dancing. I asked what song they were dancing to, and she said a song I didn't know and Lee said the Chipmunks Christmas Song.
Now they're in the car on the way home. I was especially curious to see what MK would say about this. She told Lee to get his PJ's on and go to bed. So they went to their separate rooms (thank goodness!) and went to bed. Then MK yelled, "Lee, who is going to read us our bedtime story?" Lee said, "I'll call my mom." What precious memories we all made during our afternoon together.
