Lincoln Goes to Prom

I kid. Lincoln did not actually attend prom as a four month old.

But…. we couldn’t resist the chance to dress him up to take pictures with my oldest sister before her senior prom while we were in New Hampshire.

Its hard to believe that six years ago I was getting pictures taken before my senior prom in this same yard. And to think about what has changed since those pictures were taken. My goodness.

also, if you have any desire to see what high school elisabeth looked like at prom, here’s the facebook album from 2009… I could almost zip up that red dress last month when I tried it on…but Maddie put it best when she said “well, I could probably get this to zip, but what’s the point?”  #egochecked
I feel so lucky that we are close enough to home (a short flight or a 13 hour drive…it’s a lot better than when we lived in Utah) to be a part of all these events. It was also fun to play photographer for the evening! Here are quite a few more pictures of babies in ties and girls in gowns: 

^the littlest Earnshaw sister + the favorite nephew

^she’s a beauty

^a few nights after this we had another event at our home when one of the adults asked me how I was enjoying Bedford high school. It is always fun clarifying I’m the oldest daughter who is in fact done with college, married, and has birthed a child… the reactions are great šŸ˜‰ 
^these two are like an old married couple – and being home makes me determined to have children until I have at least two girls… #sistersareeverything #wellseehowthatgoes
^we took group shots before the other third of the people showed up so the colors didn’t work out this nicely for long… 

^we had our receiving line for our wedding reception on this patio… four years later.. 
^possibly my favorite shot of the night

^my dad had just gotten back from running a ragnar (living in a bus for 24 hours with 12 other runners and running the equivalent of a half marathon) — on one side of the yard we had all the seniors in prom dresses and tuxedos….and on the other were all the sweaty runners
^my favorite people in the universe

^maddie took a picture of her and her date + linc…and it looked a little bit weird (no, the high school prom dates do not have a baby..) 
^of course, the nails…
^both grandmas (one lives with my parents in an accessory apartment off the house and the other was in town visiting from Texas….grandpa was busy taking lots of pictures too #nikonfamily) 
^Love ya, Maddie!

p.s. you can find Linc’s cute little outfit here (and its 30% off)

and my pants are sold out but they have a very similar print still available on sale here (and I live in these – they’re awesome)


  1. Little Linc is looking so adorable in his prom pics!! šŸ™‚ Sisters really are everything…but then again, so are brothers. So if Lincoln has a brother, he'll love it!! You'll be a great momma to whoever comes your way. šŸ™‚ So glad you were able to get home and be with your family. So fun!
