A Day Late, but still true.

     I know this is a day late, but I really thought this video was put together well.  It was simple and to the point.  I enjoyed hearing everyone's "stories" of where they were on that day 10 years ago.  We really were a part of history.  I'm not sure I like how our country has changed since this attack ten years ago, but I am still very proud to be an American.  I'm reading George Orwell's classic 1984 right now, and in it "Big Brother" destroys an documentation of real history.  It made it all that more impressed on my mind that we need to remember and learn from our history... otherwise... what's the point?  Here's what I remember about where I was on 9/11/01: I remember I was getting ready for school when my dad called home to my mom. He explained to her what was happening. She told me, but honestly I wasn't sure what the world trade centers were, and I interpreted it as a bomb threat or something like that. After I was dressed I walked in to watch t.v. before leaving for school. It was then that I realized the magnitude of what was happening - it was then that the 2nd plane hit. On the way to school every radio station played the horrific events, and I have a clear image of stopping at a four-way stop and taking it all in. Looking at the faces of the other people in their cars, knowing they were listening to it too... wondering what would happen next. I got to school and told many of my friends who didn't know what had happened yet. The library became crowded as people gathered around the t.v. to try and watch the events unfold. Some teachers continued on with their lessons (life must go on they said) and others said this is history in the making and turned the news on and we cried as we watched. ... Crazy to think that 10 years has gone by.

A few crafts around the house!

Old garden rake turned necklace holder via Pinterest! (I also can't seem to figure out how to rotate this picture...)

This is still a work in progress.. see that ugly thermostat?  I'd like to cover that with a picture frame too, but I'm still on the hunt for one that's the right size.

My daughter Brinnsen's nursery wall.  I don't have a vinyl cutter.  :(  sad day, I know.  So instead I cut out scrapbook paper and that sticky drawer liner paper. (you know what I mean right?)  And there you go!  Wall circles without using vinyl!

 I'm trying to remember how to post things to my page.   I just love reading blogs, and do some crafts on my own... maybe I'll get as far as to post some of those projects on here!

Face Lift

No, I did not get a face lift.  But my blog got one!  I spend most of my time updating my Facebook page, but I've recently picked up the hobby of blog hopping and thought it'd be fun to update MY blog.  It's very possible that this will be my only post this year - at least that seems to be my trend - although I'm not at home with my daughter Brinnsen and have some more time to "blog".  Maybe I will even post some of the crafty things I see other places that I attempt to recreate.  Wish me luck!

For Camille

Well...what can I say...I'm not a daily blogger...more like...a yearly one! I'm finally done with college, and waiting to hear back about some jobs. Jeremy is enjoying working at the bank, and doing some math and spanish tutoring on the side. He's also still working towards his accounting degree. Oh yeah! We also got a puppy! Well, he's 6 months old now. He's a chow/lab mix. I'll try to remember to add some pictures. Hope everyone else is doing great...keep us updated! Kristiana & Jeremy

Home Sweet Home

This is kind of a weird angle of the house, but there she be! We're really excited as things are moving along, and can't wait to get in. Oh yeah, on a side note, I got a job today! I'll be working with an 8 yr. old boy with high functioning autism. Life is going good, hope all is well in Moscow!

Jeremy, my sister Emiline, our friend Mike, and I all went floating down the Boise River this Saturday, it was a blast! Jeremy and Mike and never gone before - and that's always fun to take a first timer. It was a great trip... though we did get distracted waving to some stranger and were carried away in a quick current under some tree branches... and though there was no bodily harm, are ego could not say the same. (Though I'm sure the stranger got a kick out of it!)

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
