On the second of Feb, Joshua's darling sister got married to the man whom she said is the only one who can give her that "so sweet" feeling! Congrats! Our family woke up at 5am so that we could get to my in-law's place in time for Joash to do his special duty: opening the car door for the groom.
|Taking his job very seriously.|
|Let Daddy give you a hand...|

|Too early for the kids to be in the mood for smiling...|

After the morning's tea ceremony, we headed home to rest. I made all the kids take a nap so that they could last through the wedding dinner. After changing up, we took a cab to the hotel ballroom. The two hours wait for the dinner to start was extremely difficult for me cos I had to keep the kids occupied at a place where they were not really allowed to play freely. Even Jaide was eager to run around with her older siblings. Keeping them in line nearly drained me of my depleted energies!
Thank God for sustaining me as Joash and Jayna still had an important role to play during the first march in. They were very excited during our rehearsals at home and before the guest arrived at the ballroom. They were raring to go and kept asking me why we had to wait so long to start! *faint*

|Can I run around too?|
|While we waited...|
|Ready to be flower children!|
|Joash took this job seriously too...|
|... very seriously!|

When I asked Joash why he did not look up and smile, he told me that he was making sure the flower petals fell onto the right places. Wow, he sure is a perfectionist! Well, I'm just glad that the kids did a good job and did not embarrass my sis-in-law on her big day. Phew! Too bad Jaide was not old enough to join in the fun. LOL
By the time we slept, it was already 2 am. We were all utterly exhausted but happy to have lasted without any incident despite my pregnancy. Thanks be to God for His grace! May the Lord watch over and bless their beautiful marriage!
