Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

My Funny Valentines

Happy Friday! Woo-hoo! What a week it has been. Hello Friday, I am so glad that you are here!

Last weekend Mr. Incredible and I were asked by his parents to sing at their Sunday School Class Valentine Banquet. We adore singing together so we of course said yes. We sang, "When God Made You," and "How Deep the Father's Love for Us," together and he sang, "I Will be Here," to me. It was very romantic and made me have butterflies inside all over again. I love that man of mine!

I also got to act like a semi-professional photographer, yes I am exaggerating that a bit, and take pictures of all of the couples. It was fun. I stood on a chair and everything...you know for a better view point and better lighting. I took my shoes off to stand on that chair...that's how fancy and professional I was. Here are a few of my favorite portraits:
This is my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. They have been married for 18 years:
And it is starting to show a bit, don't you think? Ha! Just kidding! I thought this was too funny not to capture and I am so glad that I did:

Our cousins got into the action too. Nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day to my beloved," quite like the choker hold. Pose for the camera!
I'm sure that you can tell this was all in fun. They are madly in love with each other and they have 4 of the most beautiful children ever....next to my girls and my nephews, of course!

But speaking of the nephews, after the banquet I found my nephews in the children's area of the church. "Double A," the one who refers to us as his liebs threw his arms around me and said he was so glad to see me. I whispered in his ear, that he should ask his mommy if he and his brother could go home with us for a while. His eyes were as big as saucers, he was excited. After his mommy said yes, the next words out of his mouth were, "Shot-gun!" which in our area means I get the front seat!

No, we didn't let him ride in the front seat, because he is too young for that, but it still cracked me up. The boys giggled all the way home and then they started saying, "Aunt Kiki, remember the last time we were at your house we....Aunt Kiki, do you remember when we....." and then I realized it had been way too long since they had spent some time at Aunt Kiki's house which is the hard part about being so busy. I missed spending time with them I think as much as they missed spending time with us.

We quickly plugged in Mario Cart on the Wii and the games began. The girls have "throw back" hats that they like to wear....why I'm not sure...but a lot of their friends have them and they think they are cool. So, as long as that is as "gansta" as they get, I'm down with that (how's that for my cool gangsta language?). That is what Hannah is wearing in this photo:

You can see Mr. Incredible's new toy in the cabinet. He is so proud of his new tv, it brings him all kinds of joy (I love you, sweetheart!)
I won't tell your Uncle Mr. Incredible what you were just touching:
A quick bite to eat in between games. If you look closely, Rachel still has her wii remote in one hand and her food in the other. She is a bit competitive...I wonder where she gets that!
Cousin love before the mario cart wars begin again:
And then the sugar kicked in and the silliness began:
"A" had fun with Hannah's throw back hat. He is almost cracking a smile...yes I see it....try to keep a straight face cool breeze:

And then my youngest nephew looked up at me and said, "What-up dawg! Peace out!"

But that's not all he said. He talks about his "liebs" in his silly "German voice," with a little help from Aunt Kiki:

He is such a little ham!
I think this video qualifies my post to be included in Kim's Friday Funnies, don't you?

Ya'll have a fabulous weekend...and think of me please....tonight, my home will be taken over by 10 outrageous teenage girls who will be in the mood to "par-tee" as we celebrate Hannah's birthday and not sleep a wink, I'm sure!
