Uninvited Guests

The cool weather of autumn brings with it some uninvited house guests! This fall our family has found five, yes - five! of these creatures! We have found tiny ones smaller than a pinky fingernail and the largest was the size of my thumb! UGH! Not only do they trigger an internal instinct to kill but my maternal instinct has me cleaning under all beds, moving all things off of the floor and constantly, constantly, constantly reminding my children to wear their slippers and shoes when they are in the house! Bare feet are not an option!

Most of these creatures were found on the floor while we were walking... yet, one was found on L's mosquito netting just over her bed! They crawl and climb!

I couldn't get the fumigators here fast enough! Yet, since the fumigators have come we have encountered two more... so, I think I'll be calling them back to fulfill their warranty!

I am so grateful that no one has been stung by them here in Mexico!

EWWW! I'm not a bug fan- especially not these ones! I'm glad no one has gotten stung!

Awesome that you found my blog :) It's good to hear from you again :)
We sure miss having you guys around!

That gives me the hebbie jebbies, ew. I freak out when I see spider in my house. I keep telling myself to be brave so Owen doesn't learn to squeal every time he sees a bug. It's not working out so well.

It's been such a long time, It's so nice to see you making the most of your time in Mexico, your kids are getting so big!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, oxoxox

Reminds me of the one who joined me in the shower in Thatcher... gotta love the scary mission apartments.

Anne & Mary - It is SO great to hear from you! We miss you all as well! We look forward to coming home in 7 months - although we have loved our time here and wouldn't trade it... there are things we miss at home - like WASP SPRAY, COCKROACH SPRAY and overall INSECT KILLERS!

Love to all!
