So last Friday Brian calls me while i;m at work telling me we have a mouse in the house that has climbed up into the oven in the little cracks where the knobs are. I totally freaked out. I'm not totally wild about having them in the garage but I can live with it for the time being., however in the House, I'm not okay with. On the counter and in the stove is not something I wanted. I freaked out. Brian freaked out. So we set up some bait, but the bait says it will take 4-5 days before it dies. geeez so I have to live with this thing in my House for another week. I don't think so. SO I was at the dollar Tree Saturday morning, and they had snap traps there 4 for a buck, so I think "what do I have to loose" but few mice???? ( HE HE HE) SO I buy them. Brian puts one in the garage and one next to the stove. not even 20 mi nuts later we hear the one in the garage go off, sure enough a little black mouse in it. a few minutes later we look over by the stove and that one is dead too and we didn't even hear it (let me remind you that it decided to stay up in my stove for a good 18 hours) and than Sunday Brian found another dead one in the garage from the trap. I have got to say that is the best dollar I have ever spent. I'm sure we still have them cuz all the neighbors still have them, but at least 3 of them are out of the way. YAY!!!!! and at least we don't have them in the walls or ceilings like our other neighbors do. Yuck!!!
Does anyone else in our neighborhood have a mice problem or is it just the three of us connected? I was watching Phoenix one night and heard mice running in their ceiling, I guess next to Keira, she saw a mouse in her house and I have one in my garage. ugh..... what a pain. I have heard peppermint oil and alcohol will help them go away so I'm trying this first before traps. I was in our garage last night and totally starting freaking out cuz I could heard rustling around in the dog bones. It freaked me out. I went and got Brian out of bed. Do you think he cared???? NO!!!! Me in the mean time went back into the garage but would not go without one of the dog (it's not like they would do anything, but at least I wasn't along) geez. Anyone have any other suggestions, I'm way up for them.
SO, It's been awhile since our mommy has updated any pictures. SO here are our pictures from the summer. We really have done quite a bit. And tomorrow we are off to Disenyland to get use out of our memberships for one more time this year. We are so excited to go.

One of my favorite things to do is climb into the cuboards and pull everything and climb in there and hide. This what we are doing in the next several pictures. I know my mommmy loves it too, especially when I pull the 200 cookie cutters we have and throw them all over the place. It's so much fun. ;-)- Alyssa
