Jo and Jay get hitched!

The waiting is over! Jo and Jay were finally able to tie the knot on Sunday 3rd January, 3 months after they had originally planned (thanks to the visa process being so sloooooooow).

The week leading up to the Big Day saw 'Nine Acres' slowly filling up, starting with Jay arriving on Monday, we arrived on Friday, as did Ian, and Matt arrived early on Saturday morning. Added to this, Jay's family arrived Tuesday, and his best man Jake, on Thursday. Big as Nine Acres is, this was stretching it, and they stayed in a hotel nearby!
For us, it was our first overnight stay with Eden away from home, and we discovered just how much 'stuff' is needed to look after such a little person! With such a busy house, we found out that Eden loved watching and listening to all that was going on most of the time; there was just one evening where she was abit overstimulated, ending in a crying fit.

Unfortunately we were too busy to make a trip up Clent, but managed to fit a game of Settlers of Catan in (Ste loved his Secret Santa present)!

The wedding was lovely! Jo looked amazing, and everything just went really smoothly. Eden was really good through the service. As I was on bridesmaid duty, Luke looked after her, and her Great Grandma got a hold whilst we were saying prayers.
I wasnt able to feed Eden myself whilst in my bridesmaid dress (not easily anyway) so we gave her a bottle of formula - she was so full she slept all through the reception, which happily gave Luke and I a chance to chat to all the guests.

We waved the new Mr and Mrs Nigh off, in the bitterly cold weather - so that they could go and catch their train to the airport, and onto their new life together in sunny Florida!
