Wedding day!

Today Ted and I celebrate 12 years of marriage. The past 4 years have been a lot more interesting than the first 8 were, but we haven't had much time to reflect on that. For the past few days, our minds have been consumed by a much more recent wedding: Tia Glenda and Tio Bill finally tied the knot yesterday!

Arriving at the reception

The kids were supposed to be the ring bearers and flower girls, but things didn't quite go as planned. While waiting to get our pictures taken, Isaac realized that we'd put mousse in his hair and freaked out. He did not recover in time to walk down the aisle (hours later!), but Jude saved the day by marching to the front of the church by himself, carrying both his Bible and Isaac's ring pillow. (Witnesses tell me that he walked right up the platform toward his Abuelito, who was officiating the ceremony. After a bridesmaid delivered him to his daddy, he loudly declared, "I did it! But I walked too fast.") The girls, who were right behind Jude, got off to a good start, but when Dahlia ran out of petals halfway to the altar, it was her turn to freak out, and both girls turned back, crying.

With a 25% success rate, it feels like it was a whole lot of effort for very little return. But I am consoled by the fact that, by the time Glenda and Bill celebrate their 12th anniversary, all they'll care about is how adorable the kids looked in their wedding attire:

We love you, Tia Glenda and Tio Bill! Thanks for making us a part of your day!

Haha! I'm sure as the mom you were shaking your head, but I bet it was just adorable!

At our wedding, my brothers were supposed to unroll the aisle runner and carry the rings up (ring bearers). They were a little older so they got to do both. When they were unrolling the aisle runner, they got a little too excited and yanked a little too hard. It came undone at the alter end and flew up in air. The pastor and Sean and to track it down and then stand on the end of it for the rest of the processional. LOL! Sometimes little accidents make the very very best memories!

I bet their tio and tia wouldn't have it any other way!
