Comments & ID Thoughts

Hello! I found this spider outdoors at the edge of the roof over my gutters , not a hidden spot, but quite sunny. There were webs as well like separate strings not too close to each other. Also there were a few white sacks in the corners wrapped with web (I would say tiny not bigger than 5 mm 1/8 inch, probably less). This spider's body was quite small around 5 mm. There were may be a dozen of spiders like this one but even smaller. So may be they are babies and recently left their sacks. I have more pictures but I don't know how to attach them. My guess is that it might be brown widow spiders babies but I am not sure. Will be thankful for any help with identification.
