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.

Holy Cow!

I can't believe Christmas is already over. Everything except the tree (it is naked) is wrapped, boxed, and carefully put away. I am waiting on two rolling Christmas tree bags to arrive on my doorstep any day now.

I had to purchase rolling bags because apparently my man is tired of, "getting a hernia," every time he has to lug our humongo tree up into the attic. I reminded him that the kind man at Hobby Lobby (love and support that store) told me it was one of their lightest trees. And since my man is pretty manly (most days, unless you ask him to lug the humongo tree up to the attic) I thought it wouldn't be a problem. Guess I was wrong!

In fact, he refused to put our beautiful 9 foot, pre-lit tree up in the attic one more time. So, the naked tree sits alone in the corner waiting for the new rolling bags. Poor tree!

Okay, enough about that....one of my favorite things for Christmas, and you know that I have several favorite memories, but one of my favorite things was this Holy Cow toy that I purchased at Walgreens.

It's a plastic toy that shoots foam balls up to 24 feet.  And for every cow purchased, $2 went to Toys for Tots.  Win, win!I saw it on the Ellen Show and just knew they would bring some joy and lots of fun.   I was right!  I put one in my dad's stocking.  Surprise:


I love the glint of pure orneriness in his eyes in this image:

And my mom's face as she too knows that look very well!
 

Uh, huh!  I mean, Holy Cow!  Look out!  I'll give you two guesses as to whom he was aiming.

If you guessed my girls, his granddaughters, you were right!  Look out girls!
 

I took mine to school this week....and it was FUN!  It's a great stress reliever.  Maybe the state of Texas needs to issue teachers with one of these Holy Cow's the week of STARR/TAKS testing week.  Holy Cow! It's a great stress reliever!

LOL! That's to cute. Loved the look on Hannah's face. I think I would have given everyone a Holy Cow, just to make it fair. And then let the games begin. Ha! Ha!

Yes, Lana you totally do! Kim, the girls each had one in their stockings Christmas morning. Fun! Fun!

I tried to find one of those for my son's stockings. I looked at my local Walgreen's but wasn't able to find one!
