So living here in TX we have now come to realize about the "bugs" everyone talks about. On the 4th both Stephen and Kiara got bit by fire ants, ouch! And we've had our fair share of crickets and spiders in the house. We've been getting these hairy looking spiders (yuck!) and they scare the jeebers out of us! Here is a link to what they look like, didn't want to post a pic of one and have to look at it everytime I log on to my blog! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_Spider As you can see - YUCK!!! So we finally signed on with a pesticide company like the rest of our neighbors have. They came and sprayed yesterday morning, we went and ran some errands after they were done and when we came home there were a ton of dead bugs all around the outside of our house. Less churping from the crickets last night, and so far haven't seen a bug in the house besides a house fly. Oh and on our back patio Stephen saw 2 dead Black Widows! Eeecckkkk! Hopefully this solves our problem!!!

EEEEEWWWWW!! We have our fair share of spiders too...but lucky for me, nothing too scary yet.

I can't believe James is 9 months old already! Aww..he's so cute!

Yuck! Matt was telling me about the insects in TX and I guess when it comes down to it that old quote "everything is bigger in Tx" rings true. Good thing you got someone over to spray! I freak out if i see an ant in my house because i know they are scouting for food!
And James is so adorable! I love his little smile, so precious!

Ants and spiders are the least of the bugs in Texas. We had an awesome lightening rain the other day. It reminded me of Texas.
