Elinor's blessing day

Collin blessed Elinor at church last Sunday.  It was wonderful to have so much of Collin's family join us for the occasion.  We had a little brunch at our house afterward and managed to take our first family picture since Elinor was born.  Really, it was the first proper family photo since Samuel was a baby.  Embarrassing.
Especially this one.  Who are these weirdos?
Everyone oohed and aahed over Elinor's blessing dress.  While I would love to take credit for it, a talented seamstress I am not.  It belongs to my friend Kristen, seamstress extraordinaire, who made it using some hand tatted lace from another friend's mother.  Still with me?  Good.  Now prepare to ooh:
And aah:

And aw:
Yeah, we're kind of in love with this girl.  And this might possibly be the best cousins picture we've gotten to date.  At least no one is crying.  Awesome!
And of course there's the silly face one...
Thanks for coming out and making this day special, everyone!
