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.

Very Turtle-y

I heard the words, "Momma, come quick!"
And I thought to myself, "Oh, no! I wonder what's wrong."

Thankfully, all was well...we just had a visitor in the backyard.
We live on nearly 3 acres of land.
I have no idea where this little guy came from or how he got here.

He is tiny and he was scared.

Did you know turtles can scream when you try to pick them up? Me neither.
This one did and then he wet all over...nice!

Apparently after his huge journey, he was famished.

He took to the carrot like...well a famished turtle.

Let me go!

And off he went with the carrot.
Fast food to go...how very turtle-y!

So cute! I had some pet turtles when I was a kid. They are so cool looking. God's creation is amazing. How are you and your family doing? Blessings...

Oh too cute. We have huge gopher turtles that live around here. They will usually make their home in empty lots or the woods. Not that we have a whole lot of either over here. LOL.

I never thought I'd say this, but that little turtle is so darn cute!

My kids have been crazy collecting tadpoles - I have a container of 9 on the lanai right now!
