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 Brother'sWedding

My brother was married the first weekend in November. I was to be the photographer of the wedding and I had carefully circled the date on my calendar, bought a cute new dress to go with my favorite boots, and planned several pictures that I wanted to make sure we captured.

Two days before the wedding I was ordered to complete bed rest in hopes of avoiding being hospitalized for the pneumonia that hard turned into a scary state. And my heart, while already working too hard with my lack of oxygen, was broken. No wedding and no traveling....doctors orders. {sigh!}

I couldn't even call my brother or my parents to tell them without sobbing. The sobbing made me start choking, turn red, and gasp for air. So Mr. Incredible had to make the call for me. Their wedding was two weeks ago and I'm still not over it.  Yes, I know God had a plan but this one broke my heart.

My brother and sister-in-law were very gracious and thankfully God had already provided a photographer to take photos in my place....but still! 

A week after the wedding I was allowed to go back to work and slowly resume normal life.  We had plans to attend the Baylor vs. Texas Tech (sic 'em bears) and God gave me an idea to invite my brother and sister-in-law.  They graciously agreed to stay at the Gaylord Texan, our treat, and take some wedding pictures.  While it wouldn't make up for missing photographing the wedding, it would make me feel somewhat better.  It was just what this heart of mine needed and it was so fun!

And honestly, I couldn't think of a more beautiful place to take them: 
Love the twinkling Christmas lights in the background:

And seeing how happy-in-love these two are:

See what I mean?

We had to show off her cute wedding boots:

They got to sit in Santa's chair too.  So fun!

And then I set my camera and handed it to my first Sister-in-law, Mr. Incredible's sister, and she took our new family photo. 

It certainly doesn't make up for missing the wedding but it makes this heart of mine feel a little better.
