New Year's Surprise

Since my hubby is out of town, it was just my daughter and I for New Year's Eve and we celebrated in style. Junk food, a few rounds of UNO, movies, and playing Littlest Pet Shop did the trick.

And around 2 a.m., I had the most delightful surprise. My cat, Slick, came into my bedroom with a present - a dead mouse. AAAAGHHH! While I am certainly glad he caught it, I didn't appreciate him playing with it in my room, so I had to take it away from him and throw it outside. But this means I have mice in my house and that displeases me intensely. As this is a rental house, however, I am going to have my landlady call the exterminator. Ha! I will let them figure out where the little buggers are getting in.

Happy New Year!

  1. Oh my! Haha. What a way to start off 2012!

    Glad to hear your brought the New Year in, in style with your daughter. I have many fond memories of New Year's Eves with my parents, sitting around the fire, eating junk food and playing games. :)

  4. That photo of the cat is hilarious!

    We played UNO last night, too, with our son, daughter-in-law, and youngest granddaughter. It's fun to think you were doing the same.

    Happy New Year!

  5. Good thing you have a cat. We lived in a place with mice once, and we sealed up every hole we could find. Hopefully the exterminator will help.

    Happy New Year!!

  7. What a thoughtful kitty! ;) We had mice in our house in New York. I remember wondering how Amy-who was three at the time-managed to get into the chocolate sprinkles that I found all over the kitchen counters. And then I realized they weren't chocolate sprinkles...

    Happy New Year, my dear, and good luck with the mice:)

  8. Sounds like a wonderful New Years with your daughter! Not sure about the mouse thing though but I guess it means your cat loves you too! ;-)

    Happy new year! May 2012 be fruitful and full of good things! xx
