Dear Jodi,
This is an immature bug, and available identification images are generally of the adults, so let mom and friends know why they had so much difficulty.  We believe this Leaf-Footed Bug nymph is in the genus
Acanthocephala, probably Acanthocephala terminalis based on the range according to BugGuide sightings.
