Creepy Crawlers

Today when I got home from the store, I saw this huge spider in my holly bush.  It was pretty scary looking I took a picture of it before I killed it.  Did a Google search on spider types and found it.  The name of the spider is St Andrews Cross Spider.  I was happy to read that it is a non-toxic spider.  They also mention that it is considered beneficial because the large webs catch flying insects like flies and mosquitoes.  Um….It my be beneficial but I really don’t I want them hanging around my house.

Welcome Fall

Fall is my favorite season of the year.  I love the crisp cool air it brings.  The trees are just beautiful.  Football season begins, and fall ushers in my favorite holidays, Halloween, Thanks Giving and Christmas (but not in that order).  Not to mention my birthday and my anniversary 🙂

I hope to really get out and enjoy the different festivities this fall and we started out this past weekend with a visit to the pumpkin patch and of course I took plenty of pictures.  I’m still learning my new camera and noticed that most of my pictures came out over exposed, but that’s cool I still captured some great memories.  Here are some of our pictures from our trip.  Had a hard time deciding which ones to post so there are quite a few here.
