Viva Los Mexico

I met with our attorney yesterday. The news we got is that the visa isn't really close to being processed. After counseling with her we determined that the very best course of action we can take (so as to avoid any immigration complications later on) is to get married "abroad". We have decided that this means we will be heading to Ciudad-Juarez, Mexico.

This is right across the river (apparently walking distance) from El Paso, TX. So sometime in December we will be making a run for the border. Immediately following that we will set up our first home as Mr. and Mrs. Ray Elder in the beautiful country of Northern Ireland.

So much to do between now and then. I've been researching the rules of getting a marriage license in Mexico. It appears that Mexico only recognizes civil marriages so we will have a civil ceremony and then hop on over to the temple.

All are obviously invited to attend. All you will need is a birth certificate and a government issued photo id (or passport, obviously). Start brushing up on your Spanish and I'll keep you posted on when an official date is set.

Wow that's crazy/exciting. Keep us posted on all the news and when you have a date. We just might have to make a run for the border.

What date in December are you talking about here? El Paso is, after all, only a hop-skip-and-jump away from Silver City, NM, home of Wendy's family.

By the way, YEEEEEE-haw!!!
