(Sorry this picture is lamely small)
Ok, a quick update... yes UW is beautiful. So, while I'm in a good mood I decided that I needed to let everyone know how I am doing. Let's be honest, the first few weeks were... rough. Needless to say, I am now settling into my routine and getting back into the mindset of doing homework and 'just get it done so you can go to bed' land. If you were to really be standing right where this picture is taken, you would be just the to right of a building in which I have my music class. It is the music building... Shocking, I know! The quad doesn't look like this right now. The cherry blossoms have all gone into hibernation and are now resting warmly unlike anyone else on campus. Today is actually rained and I was excited. It's a good thing I live in Washington!

My ward is really great. I've found some wonderful people to spend my time with and now I am in the process of the configuring my life to be what I want... I just need the right balance of school and social life and hopefully a job soon. Bottom line is that I am definitely starting to get the hang of life and yes I will have my rough days but mostly I just shove it all into the depths of my prefrontal cortex and hope that my brain will never reach that section of my filing cabinets.

Ok. I have stalled enough. Back to homework...I'm a geek, Give me a call sometime.

love Maren :)

What We Love About Kristine!

October 11, 2009 is a verrrrrrry big birthday in Kristine's life.
Here's a few things that we looooove about Kristine: (Not in any specific order)

She married Alex! (We were a little worried about that one. . .) Actually we've realized we need to worry about all our kids. We're so happy she's a voluntary member of the Booth family.

For what ever reason she's gotten in the car, boat, airplane, car, boat, airplane. . .more than once.

She's the internet queen. She can find anything online, did you know that Windex takes out red nail polish from couches? and anyone's blog can be found (so beware)?

She uses a hair pick when she drives...I had never seen that before and thought it was cool and tried to use it... needless to say that she is the only one to be able to successfully pull it off...

She's very organized, has a job, and always a wipe in hand (does she shower her baby with wipes...only time will tell). . .some might call her obsessive, we call her hygienic.

She talks to old and young alike, is extremely thoughtful, a good snuggler and flamingo sleeper. (Sophie)

We love that she makes board games more exciting for the whole family.

She appreciates middle of the night food runs and the bodily results.

She loves to GeoCache and even in scary places where there might be cougars (Cornwall Park ;)).

She loves both chick flicks and guy movies with snacks of course.

Although she's not adventurous in food, she let us suck her into Thai food...mwahahaha.

She let us come on her honeymoon! (This might show a little insanity, but we appreciate her budgetmindedness. . . )

And finally, she can flash her baby blues, and beautiful smile even after squeezing out another adorable Miller/Booth!

YOUR THE BOMB KRISTINE!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!WE ADORE YOU!!!!! (you don't even understand how much!)
