Merry Christmas

Twas the night before the night before Christmas and not a creature was stirring -- particularly not a mouse! As the attic is right next to our bedroom, I was pleased to discover one more greedy mouse exterminated. Various stocking stuffers were replaced yesterday...and are away from mouse nesting making...
When the kittens grow up, they are going to be kept busy. Luckily they are already fond of chasing catnip stuffed mice.
Heathcliff and Mr Darcy are also fond of scaling the Christmas tree and had to be removed several times.
The puppies have attempted to investigate packages...
Chaos and confusion reign.

Hopefully everyone is safe and well this holiday season. And as my sister introduced me to this song (she even went and found me a cd with this on!) and it does remind me of family far away and Christmases spent with them:

Merry Christmas, Michelle - have a wonderful time. (And may Mr Darcy and Heathcliff become champion mousers!)

Happy, happy Christmas to you and yours (both two and four-legged) Michelle. Hope you all have a lovely, relaxing time.

(Is Mr Darcy's first name James? Hope so... Katharine has impeccable taste.)

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas - hope I get to see you next year - it's been far too long.
