"Official Mouse Catcher!!"

Well, I bet the title of this post got your attention!! LOL This is such a FUNNY story, but I will try to make it short. Last week we saw a mouse crawl up between the tin and the concrete on our back porch and steal some of Katy's (our wienie dog) dog food. I can't stand little mice, they just creep me out. Well when Montana saw it she was scared because it would just stare at us! The next day Levi put bait out underneath the house, and we thought that was the end of our problem. NOT!!

A couple days later I was reading a book in my recliner and I could see something out of the corner of my eye. He went from the couch to underneath Autumn's walker and as I watched he took off for the hallway. I hollered at Levi to hurry and come in there and when I did the little mouse didn't know where to go, it was going just going back and forth. It finally dodged into the bathroom. Levi said, "Are you sure it was a mouse?" That was a no brainer for me!! :) Levi sat about 5 traps throughout the house that night. That night only one trap had been sprung in the office. A couple more days went by and NOTHING!!

Well, last night he appeared again and the laughter began!!!!! :) After we saw him he got up underneath the couch and Levi flipped the couch over and had a stick digging in there to get him. After 5 minutes passed, I went to finish giving Montana a bath. After about 15 minutes, Montana and I returned to the living room when Levi said the mouse was now behind the hutch. And listen to this- he put my flip-flops at one end of the hutch to block the hole and then had a trap on the other end to where he had to step on it. But, this mouse like JUMPED over it! He came out once and looked at us and then ran back. By this time Montana wants to stick her head back there and see the mouse again because he went bye-bye. She was standing in front of the hutch saying, "Bye-bye mouse." During this time, I got the broom for Levi and when he came out Levi had the broom in the air and smacked him DEAD right there!!!!

When Levi went to carry him outside all Montana could say was that mouse dead. Then she started imitating Levi and it was the funniest thing ever!!! She raised her arms in the air and acted she was going to smack the mouse and was saying, "Daddy did like this and bam killed that mouse." She was jumping up and down and laughing, and needless to say- Autumn SLEPT through all of our mouse adventure!

Just an innocent 2 year old and her mouse adventure!!! :)

That is too funny! Montana's imitation of her daddy sounds hilarious! A girl who works at school killed a BAT in their house last night. Too much excitement for me!
