Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday.
Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam..." from The Princess Bride
We love this movie, we quote lines from it all the time, and it has been a standard family joke that Braedon would stand up and quote this if Anna-Lisa was late to the wedding.
It has been a recovery week for all of us here at home. I seriously did not realise how wired up and busy we had been up to the wedding and I underestimated the time to allow us to get back into normality.
I have not even called my dear friend who has left me messages (sorry) but we were only just getting through the day it seemed and we certainly are dealing with some behavioural issues 'post wedding'
Sleep seemed to be a major component of the recovery week as well as just getting through the days activities.
We seem to be coming out the other side and even today started back with our regular learning schedule. Well truth be told a new look at what we are doing and implementing this.
You want to see some pictures I am sure.
So here are a few highlights of the 'big day'
Sorry for the lighting in the photos but it was a morning wedding and the light was shining right in across my camera angle.
Poor little Arwen suddenly started sobbing uncontrollably during the wedding when she realised that Braedon was REALLY getting married and it would all be different from now on. Needless to say that finished off her involvement as a flower girl for a while.
Only big brother Kynan was able to help soften the blow, as mummy had to hold little Trahaearn.
These are still my versions though
We certainly had a few last minute hiccups with it including the dug out finger marks from the under 5 age group.
This is Vellvin's dark hair and..........
Eden's lighter coloured hair.
I still remember doing this for our first born.
Indeed it was spectacular and they had rehearsed some very fancy moves...........so very typically Braedon that it was this that actually reduced me to tears.
Yes more than the wedding itself, it was this dance of complete love and devotion from them both that I will remember most.
After this the happy couple left to go we know not where and sadly as always the party cam to an end.
However I am certain that this is the start of a most happy and joyous life and we welcome Ann-Lisa more completely into our family as we share in this journey together with them.
Blessings to you and your homes,
