First, a message from our guest blogger, Jacob:

We had as many of our friends and family as we could invite in our house on Saturday, 30 October. At one point, our kitchen was so full of people, I couldn’t imagine one more person able to fit!

Although I felt like I didn’t get a chance to talk enough with everyone, it was nice to have most of the people we care about in one place. I’ve lived in NOVA for 17 years…it will be strange to pack up and move away for so long.

I started to take pictures, but got distracted with photos of Ana and Jacob…then Jacob got fussy. Unfortunately, I didn’t pick up the camera again after that. I wish I could have snapped photos all night!
