                                                                   Fiesta Family!

Our family has a tradition of using Fiestaware dishes from Homer Laughlin.  We love the colors, shapes, sturdiness and cheerfulness of these dishes.  So far, one sister-inlaw, one niece, two nephews, and three daughters use it besides myself.  I even got my florist friend started for her birthday!
                                                              Who will be next?
                                                         Orange Poppyseed Scones!

I made these this hot 104 degree day because I was hungry and bored of hiding inside.  Boy, were they good!  The recipe called for lemon instead of orange, but since I didn't have lemon, orange was it and was a big hit!  I got the recipe from and want to try a lime, coconut version.

Sacramento Temple Wedding

We've been waiting for more wedding photos from our third daughter and here are a few.  We can't wait to spend time with them when they come to California in September.

Eunice Reasor Brown, joined the church in 1840.  She is a neice to my 3rd great grandmother

William Whitcher has a long line of early American history attatched to the Olson family.

We have been very busy doing family history for the past two or three years.  It is so rewarding to find your ancestors that you have been searching for.  Sometimes we find wonderful stories, obituaries, and pictures.  As we visit our family each Sunday during our dinners, we know how important it is to pass it on forward to the next generation.  Doing family history reminds us of where we came from, where we have been, and where we are going.


Finding photos of us dancing are few and far between. We have been married 28 years now!   I really like the ceiling of the wedding at San Jose.  It was made with butcher paper and twinkle lights.
