Hallie's new "little" friend...

So this is Hallie's newest "friend". She found him on the window today! This thing is HUGE!! I used a ruler to measure him.... and..... he is 5 1/2 inches long!!!!!!!!! Scared the crap out of me when she found him! My little bug collector has read him stories, sang him songs, played her whistle for him, and even made him a "scrapbook card". We have had him "at our house" for about 4-5 hours now... we'll see how long he stays! As much as I HATE bugs, it is kind of interesting to see him up close! Here is a picture of Hallie reaching up by him so you can kind of see how big he is in comparison to her. (about 2inches or more longer than her hand!) That's all for now... I am sure she will be telling "huge bug" stories for a long time!


5 friends had to say...:

Wow! That is a huge bug! I don't think I would want that in my house - even if it was in a jar.
It can be fascinating to see creation up close!
Enjoy while he "visits"

that thing is HUGE!!! Kirsten is also a bug fanatic,going on walks with her in the early summer takes forever because she is constantly picking up potato bugs, she's obsessed with them!
