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.

Rock the Desert 2010...Rocked!

In the words of one of our favorite bands, Skillet, "It rocked our faces off!"  I don't know if you have ever heard of Rock the Desert?  If you are part of a youth group, I'll bet your youth have.  We had the blessing of seeing awesome bands like Skillet, Casting Crowns, Hawk Nelson, Decypher Down, and so many more.  It was a hot, 3 day event, but an incredible one at that.

I took my camera Friday night to the Skillet concert and captured a few pictures to share with you.

A huge thunderhead cloud kept inching closer and closer but the Lord kept the rain away until last night.  We were blessed with 2 inches of glorious rain!

This sunset was gorgeous!  I have no idea who these people are in my photo but I love everything about this.  God is so awesome!

Finally it was time for Skillett!  Woo hoo!

And this one who sang at the top of her lungs with the rest of us. 

I didn't realize how loudly I was singing until I tried talking after Skillet was finished.  I barely had a voice.  Casting Crowns was the last band of the evening and I was so thankful that we stayed.  I had forgotten how much I adore their praise and worship.  They have a new album out that I need to get with a new song called "If We Ever Needed You."  It is a beautiful song!

During one of the songs a young family in front of us decided to go home.  It was already midnight and they were tired.  The mom picked up her 3 year old son and mistakenly gives him the biggest wedgie.  The funny part was that she had no idea, but the rest of us did.

Many people around us were raising their hands in worship and singing and then a little voice in the darkness loudly calls out, "My hinie!  My hinie! My hinie!"  and we all giggled a little bit because the mom still didn't have a clue.  The young boy notices all of our attention, so he lowers his voice a little and changes his tune to, "My butt!  My butt! My butt!"  And we all cracked up laughing.

Okay, I seriously laughed out loud when I read the last part!

That sounds like something that would happen in our family...more than once. :)

My daughter just asked me "why are you laughing?" Oh, an Aunt named Kiki made me. :)

Blessings to ya',

How awesome! My kids have outgrown the youth groups and my grandchildren are just starting to get close to the age, so I haven't heard of this. But Britt Nicole is a big hit with us. :) Super pix too! :)

PS.. I heard that the soldiers were given a concert by a Christian band at Ft Benning but I don't know who it was. I was wondering if it was this group that was touring. I can't wait to see Josh and find out!

This sounds similar to "Spirit West Coast", which we have out in California every summer. Love the pictures my friend. Totally amazing! Oh, and I seriously cracked up at the "hiney" thing. Too funny!
