The mice have taken over

~Hi Friends~
Hope you are enjoying the weekend!  My mom has been staying with us the last week and even though she is only a 15 minute drive away, it was extra special to have her living with us.  I realized I didn’t take any pictures of this mice this year so here they are from last year.   
I was at the Dollar Store and couldn’t leave without putting the cute little mice in my cart.
The boys thought it was pretty funny when they came home from school.
I’m surprised our Jack Russel didn’t try to kill them. When there is a mouse in the neighborhood Bailey will sniff it out and take care of business.
Hope you have a fabulous day.

    you're still fabulous.


  3. Thanks so much for the great news!!!! I can't wait to spend it! The mice are adorable.

  4. Oh, how fun for the boys! They look great on the stairs. We had a mouse in our last house…I think our cat brought him in. I went to stay the night in a hotel until my husband took care of the matter. Congratulations to Renee!

  5. I bet your boys loved this! So cute!!! Stay cool, we had Indian Summer weather for days but it is turing cool now. XO, Pinky

  6. The mice look so cute Kristin! It always makes me think of "Hickory Dickory Dock" whenever I seem them! 🙂

  7. I didn't realize you lived in San Diego. How I envy you living in California! I've been twice now and fell in love, such a beautiful state! We never made it down to San Diego though, someday we will hopefully!

    Those mice are cute as can be. Too bad my stairs are carpeted!

  8. So cute, Kristin! I have those little critters in my mud room and WISH I had a beautiful stairwell like yours to let them *climb* !! My sister is getting ready to move your way in December … they'll be living in Solana Beach … how far is that from you?

  9. I used to think mice were cute but since I have been trying to get rid of them for the past 6 months I hate the little darlings. I catch them in human traps then take the traps outside and turn them lose for the barn cats to catch them. I am an animal lover but mice have become my public enemy number 1. I am moving my parrots & dogs to my daughters house so I can fumigate my house. Hopefully that will get rid of them. They are distructive little critters. I cannot find where they are coming in, but am beginning to think it is the chiminey. I do not want to use poison because I am afraid the poisoned mice will get outside and my barn cats will catch one and get sick. And I do not need a big vet bill, I do not need any size vet bill.

  10. That would freak me out because I have a tendency to go up the stairs in the dark so I’m sure I would forget they were even there. Cute for you but bad idea for me LOL.

  11. I use the same mice yearly, but since my stairs are carpeted, I put them on the side! I also traced the original mice from Martha and made a lot more of my own. I also cut mouse holes for them . 🙂

  12. Oh that is so sweet having your Mom stay the week. I hope your Mom and Grandmother are doing well. I think of you often Kristin. And, those mice! How fun! I am sure the boys love those. Wish we had stairs and I would use your idea. I love it. Have a good week. XO Allison
