Ashlynn Gets Married

This is the stuff blogs are made of. I don't even know where to start.

Basically Ashlynn and her best friends little brother, Harry decided to get married. This decision was made in order for Maggie and Ashlynn to be "related" and so their kids could be cousins. They kept talking about this marriage that was going to take place until one night all of the parents went out to dinner and left the kids with the sitter. When we came back, there were pictures to document the incident.

You need to understand that when Harry and Ashlynn do anything, they don't do it halfway. It really would be a scary thing if they got married.

There were not just the obvious costumes (complete with top hat and sword) but Briggs walked Ashlynn down the aisle, They exchanged rings that came from genuine ring boxes and they finished it off with a bang by sealing the deal with a kiss. And not just any kiss. We are talking bear-hug-on-the-lips-kiss.

When I asked Ashlynn if she knew that she was not supposed to kiss boys until she was older, she just looked at me with total honesty and answered, "No."

After a few days, Harry and Ashlynn's play got a little carried away and we had to tell them to stop. Harry got down right mad when we took his wife home that night. Much to his dismay, his mom told him he wasn't allowed to sit with his wife at church until he was 18. Ashlynn asked the Primary secretary if she could hold her baby because her and Harry had gotten married.

I don't have pictures in my posession of the nuptuals, but if you click on Harry's familys' blog link you MUST view the pictures.

That is hysterical! And, a little too realistic. They sound like two peas in a pod.

Ash & Harry married- what a nightmare for the families! How funny and cute that was! We really have to watch what kids see us do and how much they mimic us. That was a cute story and someday they will both cringe at those photos.

oh my! WOW! I have to admit I was getting a little jelous that you guys found a family that you can totally get along with (husbands and wives and kids and so forth) still waiting to get that...but none the less, maybe it's a good thing we arent THAT close to anyone! HAHAHA!!! they are too cute though and if they do ever do the wedding for real, what great photos, if not, you can totally use them as leverage!!! :)

Kelly, knowing Ashlynn, I bet she was both her own bride and her own flower girl. She still tells me about the time she got to be your flower girl (big hit with her!)
