'Twas the night before Christmas...
He kind of shrugged me off until the day before yesterday as he was putting on his pants, and he shrieked like a little girl. I asked him what was the matter and a mouse ran from under the bed, through his legs and down our heating vent. It was not too long before he got some traps. Well yesterday we set two.
Then I reset the trap again and about one in the morning, I heard a lot of noise coming from the heating vent...and Eric turned on the light and told me that we had caught another one. He crawled back in bed, and the poor little mouse, trapped head down, flapping, and thrashing around, kept me up. I felt bad for the poor thing, so bad I said to Eric "We can't let him die like this. It is not a nice way to die."
So he put on his warm clothes, walked out in the snow fall, and freezing winter air, and let this one go and stay with Gus Gus. He came back in bed and then said "So freezing to death is better than being trapped and hung upside down?"
"Well at least he has company and food, and now some trash to bundle in. Its a mouses heaven."
So rest well little mice and I hope you do not have more family members to stir in the night. Because I don't know how many more my can can hold, and how much more my heart can take sending y'all away. I am about to get y'all a blanket....Maybe I will go buy a cage?
AND ON A TOTAL OTHER NOTE!

I just want to thank you all! It has been such a blessing to have so many wonderful caring people in our lives, We are so undeserving of such gifts. My kids are going to be so spoiled this Christmas...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!
