Day 75: Invasion!

It's a good thing we have cats, because today we were invaded by a veritable ARMY of mice. 

An invasion of 65, to be exact.

Counsel of war:

Their fearless leader:

Off to brief the troops.

Personally, I think our family is outnumbered, and the best thing to do would be to surrender.
They played the cuteness card, so what else can we do?

Actually, they give a whole new meaning to the little verse that goes something like this *ahem*:

Love them little mousies
Mousies what I love to eat
Bite their tiny heads off
Nibble their tiny feet.

These were made for the Young Women group at church.  Easy to make.  Just cut a little heart out of felt and a tail from thin ribbon.  Carefully unwrap part of a kiss and remove the tag.  Tuck the ribbon under the chocolate and replace the foil.  Unwrap just the tip of another kiss and remove the tag--even just the top part of it will do.  Glue the ears and bodies together with tacky glue.  Glue the eyes on.  Giggle like a child at the sheer adorableness.

Maureen: Thanks! I wished that we had a mousetrap hanging around so I could take a picture of it sniffing peanut butter, and then another one of a chocolate peanut butter cup. LOL

Sergey: Welcome! When I bemoaned not knowing how to read Russian, a friend sent me a link to an online translator. I plugged in your comment, and it translated it for me. Very cool! I'm glad you like the little mice. They were fun to make. My kids keep wanting to eat them, though. :o)

Oh, I love these! Now, these mice I could live with...all. year. long.

You're too funny....I had no idea where you were going with this at first!

Wonderful idea....I'm so glad you shared!

Allegria said...

Kathryn: Frankly, I didn't know where I was going with it either. I just had to post a picture, the mice decided they wanted their pictures taken, and I was afraid of being taken hostage or something if I didn't comply with their demands.

So glad you complied! They are darling little mouses but a tad bit bossy.
Tell them I love, love, love them....all 65! ;)
