of spiders

Check out this black beauty that I came across while working in my flower beds today! I wish that I had taken "her" picture next to something so you could understand how big it was! I think she might have been about to burst with babies or something. Anyway I played with it for a while and made it flip over and do tricks all in the name of photography before sending her on to spider heaven! We find black widows all over around our house (outside). The kids have even gotten good a spotting a widow web! We go on hunts every so often and get rid of the ones that we find. Hopefully the population around our house is dwindling!

YIKES! I can't believe you were playing with your widow! Just a little scary! They are much bigger than most people think they are. You are a brave mommy!

I think I just had a nervous breakdown here at work. Why in the world would you play with a spider. I feel like they are crawling down my neck now. YOU ARE CRAZY. I would have constant hives if I lived at your house.

So first of all,thanks for the nightmares I am going to have! I actually found a crazy white spider the other day and played with it for a while before releasing it back into the wild.
