Today's Headline: "Strong quake shakes Southern California"

"The 5.4-magnitude quake — considered moderate — was felt about 11:42 a.m. from Los Angeles to San Diego, and as far east as Las Vegas, 230 miles away. Nearly 30 aftershocks quickly followed, the largest estimated at 3.8. ...

"As strong as it felt, Tuesday's quake was far less powerful than the deadly magnitude-6.7 Northridge earthquake that toppled bridges and buildings on Jan. 17, 1994. That was the last damaging temblor in Southern California, though not the biggest. A 7.1 quake struck the desert in 1999. "

A little earthquake, but no reason to panic. Jon was nice enough to call to make sure we were all okay, though.

My Sister Lani married Ryan in the Redlands Temple

Mathew & Emma both love Grandpa Watson.

What a ride!
I guess Mathew thought he could put his Great-grandma's walker to better use.

I saw that Melissa posted first, so, at the risk of sounding like the girl from SNL...
I made Emma's dress (and pattern).
Mary made the flower clip for her hair.

I know this one was silly, but I had to try it, and I was surprised at the accuracy--Sleeping Beauty was my favorite when I was little.
You Are Aurora! (A.K.A. Sleeping Beauty.)

Thoughtful and loving. Authority figures probably have been sheltering you all of your life. Thankfully you're a very tranquil person who is content with what life has given you, but secretly you want to know how the outside world works.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

Toddlers are so funny

Emma is walking now.

She likes to follow Mathew around and do everything he does, including the things he does to get in trouble.

Mathew loves tractors. He went outside by himself recently, and when I was out looking for him I said "Mathew, where are you?" I heard him, off a distance, say "on Daddy's tractor." (He had climbed to the top of a lift, about six feet high, with no ladder, by himself.)

The Bride

I always seem to let a lot of time go by in between posts, so sorry to those who get bored of seeing the same old stuff all the time. We have been pretty busy lately planning and preparing for Lani's wedding. We had a bridal shower for her at our house recently.
