Our new little friend


Our new catipiller friend... Posted by Picasa

So, Drew found this catipillar on the grape tomato bush yesterday. I am completely grossed out by him, he's probably the size of the palm of my hand (I we all know how much I love little creepy things). We went to the temple last week, and during the temple ceremony (which deals with the creation) I always think about how much God loves us to provide ALL the amazing things on this earth. He even sent this little (ok, not so little {shiver}) catipillar for our family to look at. The boys thought it was totally cool... For me, I realized how lucky I am. This has not been a particularly good week in our family, but to see all of us crowded around this little catipillar, marveling at how he looks JUST like the leaf (I seriously didn't even see it for a minute becuase he blended so well) I realized that God did create the earth for us, and he loves us, creepy things and all. And if that's the case, I can be more loving to everything and everyone around me. So, take His love, and pass it on...
P.S. Drew and I just looked at each other and said, "is that Catipillar gonna eat that plant?" Perhaps the catipillar will have to share the love elsewhere... :) My kids love grape tomatoes too much.
P.P.S This partiuclar species is the "Endromis versicolora /Kentish Glory" (I found it on the "what catipillar is this? site -- gotta love the internet, don't ya?

  2. Well, I'm still here (not giving birth unfortunately, lol) so I thought I'd check out all your latest blogs. This guy kind of freaks me out. I don't even like ladybugs, but I know my boy would have gone crazy for this creature.
