OUR NEW FAMILY PET!


So, last week the boys discovered this cute little gal as they went to dry off their football that had fallen into the pool. It was hiding in a towell thrown over a chair. Luckily, they saw it before it saw them. This was a pretty substantial sized black widow and it made the small hairs on my head stand up.

SCARY !! I'm impressed that you stopped to take a picture of it before you squished the little booger. You did squish it right?

OK, seriously scary! I would move the very next day if I found one of those any where near or in my house, not kidding!

I think it is time that your pet spider bit you and got you to at least update your blog one more time so the stupid spider is not front and center anymore!

I hate spiders !! They just creep me out !! Anyway, I have been thinking about you recently b/c I was telling Mike that story of the boy who carried his younger brother thru the snowy water and up a hill - you told the story in Primary and I never forgot it - you have a pic in your house that you brought that day too ... I was trying to find a copy of it to show Mike and so, can you tell me the name of it ? I loved the story. My email is cortniepotter@yahoo.com - I look forward to hearing from you !! Take care -
