Blessing Day


Claire's blessing day was a great affair. Over 50 family members and friends joined us from six states, and Germany for the big day. We feel very fortunate to be surrounded by such an amazing circle of support.

Niels did a nice job and we were pretty surprised that by some miraculous measure Claire didn't make a single peep with practically half a football team surrounding her.

Isn't she a dream in white?



Grandma and Grandpa Colton came all the way from Germany!

Niels' Grandma Haycock suffered a stroke in December and is living in an assisted care center until she improves enough to move back to her home. We were so touched that the center allowed her to leave for a few hours so she could attend the blessing.

More Family and Friends
Practically my second family, The Hofheins, made the trip from Utah and helped make it a very special weekend.
A big thanks to all our friends and family for your love and support!
