Welcome

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.

Hannah's Birthday Bash...Let the Games Begin!

Yesterday, I posted pictures from Hannah's birthday bash but I left off details about the game we played.  Have you seen the show, "Silent Library?"  Yes, I know it's on that channel....really, our girls don't watch that channel unless this show is on.  All of their friends have been talking about it so we decided to check it out.  It is so stinkin' funny.  Funniest Home Videos has nothing on this show...and I like the title of the show far more than that other Jack show on this same channel.

Hannah hosted a fun scavenger hunt party last year.  Here is the link in case you missed it.  Some of her friends were hoping we would do another scavenger hunt, and to be honest I nearly hosted a mall scavenger hunt, but then I found my mind and realized this might be a disaster...for the shoppers. Ha.  So, we settled on our take of the show Silent Library.

If you haven't seen the show, it involves a group of people who draw cards.  The person who turns over the skull card has to do a crazy stunt. Now the stunts on this show involve outrageous stunts that we would never think about doing because hello! we would have to face these parents and we want their children to be allowed at our house again one day.

So, we seriously modified some of the stunts. To get ready for the party, Hannah and I headed to our local Dollar Tree where everything is a dollar.  Hannah and I had fun looking through the store and coming up with crazy games to play.  We must have been a sight to the other shoppers when we found a few items that we were really hoping to find. 

My little mastermind had a blast picking out props and clever titles for the games.  And thankfully, all of her friends enjoyed the game although a few were a little nervous about what game they might have to play. Naturally, if they didn't want to participate they didn't have to play...but they all did!

We divided the group of 20 (Rachel was our helper) into two teams.  And we didn't play with cards that had skull and cross bones, we used regular playing cards.  The person from each team that drew the Joker card had to do the stunt for their team. If they finished the stunt before the other team did, then their team earned a point.  The team with the most points won!  But, there is always a catch, right?  Silent Library is held in a library...a place where you have to be quiet.  That's a tough feat when you are doing outrageously funny stunts.  And it's tough with a room of 21 teenagers too!

Here are a few of the games we tortured Hannah's friends with played:


Got Milk?  Okay, it wasn't really milk.  It was a concoction of Milk, Dr. Pepper and a shot of Buffalo Sauce in a baby bottle:

 This game was called Cannibal Crackers.  They were dog treats in the shape of people...people treats.  This guy ate his the fastest while downing a can of Sprite.  (Don't worry!  I checked the ingredients...it was all edible).

 This game was called, "Snap, Crackle, POP!"  They had to carefully place a tiny Pop Rock in their nose and wait for it to pop.  Hannah got to do this one:
 This next game was called, "I'll Shoot Your Eye Out!"  We had the contestants put on silly glasses and noses while a team mate shot rubber washers out of a toy.  It was funny!

 Okay, this game I wasn't so sure about but my little mastermind talked me into it.  We called this game, "Bite Your Tongue."  We found disgusting treats made out of dried mango and chili.  The contestants had to eat one and finish it before the other team.  Kaitlyn wasn't so sure. 

 And neither was Caleb.  There were extras in the package (I didn't want them) so we asked if anyone else wanted to try it.  One of Hannah's macho guy friends decided to give it a go...and he ended up in the guest bathroom.  Oiy!  

 This game was called, "Got Spam?"  Icky!  Just the sight of my man pulling the spam out of the package made me queasy.  These two guys were game for the challenge.  The one on the right dry heaved the entire time but he finished it and he won for his team!

 A milder game involved having contestants chew an entire package of that rolled up kind of bubble gum.  They had to chew it until they could blow a bubble. 
 And this was the much anticipated game!  Anything with the words, "Stink," and "Bag," are going to be big hits, don't you think?  This game Hannah named, "Eat it!"  And we definitely took this game outside because who wants this smell in your house...it already smelled like 21 teenagers!  Ha!

There were three packages inside.  Without opening the package, the contestants had to crack open the liquid packet inside and then quickly throw it on the ground.  The instructions explained that the package would swell up until it popped...and then the contestant had to get close to the ground and open their mouths to "eat" the stinky air.  No, those are not the instructions on the back of the package....it was all Hannah. Now, do you get the mastermind nickname? 


 Her brave friend Sydney, who is a cowboy, didn't think twice about this game...he was all in! He gulped in the stinky air and proudly expressed it was, "The worst thing he ever smelled in his life!"  And then three other guys begged to try the game too.  And course, we obliged...we are great hosts like that!

 There was another mild game that involved eating Tapioca pudding out of a snack pack without a spoon.  Easy peasy:


And the last game was called "Sausage Toss!"  The two contestants donned black trash bags as their teammates hurled 3 vienna sausages at them.  And yes, we did this outside too.  If you look closely, you can see 2 tiny Vienna sausages flying through the air.  It was all fun and games until one of them tracked squished vienna sausages into my livingroom.  Yuck!  I called in the dogs later that night...they were glad we had a Silent Library party.


All of Hannah's friends were great sports...and they all still love Hannah.  A lot of them posted on Facebook that this was, "The best party ever!" Yes!  I'm thankful we have a year to plan the next party.

Oh my goodness! You rank as the coolest mom ever. And that's saying a lot because I was up until I read this post. LOL!
Can I help with next years party? Will you fly me out? Can I make more teenagers eat spam? LOL!

What a fun day for Hannah!
Have a great day my friend.

Wow, she came up with some creative games! I'm glad they all had a fun time. She is sure a pretty 14 year old!

I prayed today for Rachel and her college decision.

Have a great rest of the week!

How in the world did I miss this post?

I'm officially disgusted, in a good way. The nose thing made me shiver. Ugh!

I agree with Kim - you are a cool MOM! :)

Blessings friend,
