My little Godson

I am honored to be the Godmother to Joseph Michael, Kyla and Michael's new baby boy. It's such a special role and I look forward to watching Joseph grow up in the Catholic Church and walk in his faith journey with Christ. He is such a blessing to our family. Sarah and I flew up to Minneapolis over the weekend for his baptism. It was such a special and meaningful day.

The new little family.

My parents and Kristina and Annie were also there. Along with Michael's family.

We are excited that Sarah and Joseph are only 8 months apart.


We also enjoyed an afternoon at the Minneapolis Arboretum one day. The tulips were in bloom and were just beautiful.

I don't remember the last time we took a picture of just the five of us.

Sarah enjoyed some good one on one time with Grandpa. She loves her Grandpa!

We had a great weekend and enjoyed our time with the new Zajicek family. I can't wait to see them again, already miss that sweet boy!


  1. Oh, how I LOVE seeing the Eckel family picture! And every single one of you haven't changed a bit since the last photo together, I'm sure. Y'all are one handsome/beautiful bunch! I just can't imagine how proud Mama and Papa Eckel are of their sweet girls and all their precious grandbabies!!

    Joseph is just as cute as he can be and you are definitely a proud Godparent! What a blessing that you could all join Kyla and Michael for Joseph's big day. I know that must've meant so much to them. I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time!

  2. Love all of the pictures from your special weekend. You captured some very special moments at the arboretum. I just know Kyla and Michael were such proud parents of sweet Joseph. So glad you and Sarah got to go.

  3. Congratulations to Kyla and Michael! Joseph is precious. I love the photo of the five of you. You have such a very special family, Katherine. I am so glad you were all able to be there for such a special moment. blessings to all ~

  4. What a fun trip to Minneapolis! I know Kyla and Michael appreciated having you all join them for such a special and memorable occasion in Joseph's life.

    You got some really great pics with your family! Please, please tell me you have framed the picture of Sarah kissing your cheek. Oh, girl! That is one of my all-time favorites!
