The Big Bang

Ok,here goes... Astronomers often describe seeing light 'from the Big Bang' What confuses me is that if all the matter in the universe was created in the Big bang then how did the planet we live on & look from get to our point in the universe BEFORE the light from the Big Bang? That would imply that we got here faster than light. Light travels in a straight line & we cannot see light that has already gone by us, so surely the light from that event should have passed by us a long time ago...? Am I missing something?
