Confirmations and Christenings...

On Saturday, April 22nd, my cousin Bylgja (meaning small wave), was confirmed. On the same day, her newborn brother was Christened and given the name Johann Ingi after his paternal grandfather and maternal grandmother (my Amma Inga)...


Below you see my mum's three younger sisters, youngest to oldest from left to right; Helga, Groa, and Syta... They're all wearing Icelandic costume, and the silverwork on the bodices of their costumes are our particular family silverwork...


From the left you see my cousin Alda (meaning large wave - we have a whole nautical theme going in our family, I have another cousin named Bara, which mean's Giant wave, LOL)... Then there is my uncle Magnus' sister (I think)... Then my Aunty Helga (in Icelandic costume), my uncle Magnus, my cousin Heidrun (Heidi), and my cousin Bylgja, and I'm assuming the girl on the end is their cousin, but I don't know her name...
