All Good Things Must Come To An End

Chris the Mouse enjoyed his last couple of days at our house by playing Chutes and Ladders and leaving more candy around our house. He went back home to the North Pole with Santa on Christmas Eve. He will be missed but we know he is needed very much to clean up after the elves in Santa’s Workshop!

The Adventure Continues

Chris the Mouse has continued on his little adventure exploring our house at night. Last week we found him reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas to one of his new little friends, eating candy canes as he put together our Christmas Countdown for us, looking at our Nativity Scene and sitting in an empty flower vase! One night he even made himself a cup of hot chocolate in MY favorite cup! The nerve of him! That same night he made a marshmallow man as well. He has hung from our dinning room lights, played with the race track that we set up for Christmas and last night we found him playing pool!

I can’t believe all the stuff this little mouse finds to do around here. No really, because my girls are always complaining that they are bored and have nothing to do! I am just glad that Chris the Mouse is having a great time and I love that he is so quiet at night. Just quiet as a mouse!

Not A Creature Was Stirring…

Except Chris the Mouse! He has had an eventful week at our house. He brought the girls plenty of treats and he has had his share of running around at night!

I know Chris the Mouse is on vacation, but it sure would be nice if he would clean my house one night while he is up running around like crazy!

Welcome Back Chris

Last week my youngest daughter made a plea to Santa to bring Chris the Mouse back to our house. She set up her Elf Bed, put out popcorn, cookies and crackers, because “that’s what Chris likes to eat,” and wrote a nice letter to Santa! She couldn’t wait until morning. This was almost as big as Christmas Eve!



The next morning she flew downstairs to see if Chris had arrived. The look on her face was great when she saw Chris. All morning long she talked about all the things that she and Chris were going to do. My older daughter came into the kitchen and said, “Mom, wasn’t I her age when I found out about Santa? I think I was! She is getting worse instead of better!” I told her if she didn’t watch out Chris wasn’t going to leave her anything except little mouse droppings!

My daughter took Chris to school with her the first day she had him. He stayed in her locker box all day. My daughter swears that he cleaned her and her friend’s locker out. I swear I did not go up to her school! Pinky promise!

Chris spent his first night with us sleeping in his little Elf Bed. At least that’s where my youngest daughter put him to bed! When she woke up the next morning she found Chris sitting at a picnic table with 2 candy bars in front of it. He was even nice enough to leave one for the non-believing older sister!

The next night my daughter once again put him to sleep in his bed and once again he didn’t stay there! I am starting to think he has something against sleeping in his special Elf Bed because we found him sleeping in the Doll House!

The following night my daughter decided that Chris needed to sleep with her. He apparently woke up during the night and left some little miniature chocolate bars on the stairs. My youngest daughter was nice and shared them with her sister. I told the Non-Believer to “be careful of the chocolates because he might have made them himself!”

Hopefully Chris will start to sleep a little more at night next week but I am not going to hold my breath!

The Return Of Chris The Mouse

Well it’s that time of year again. Yep, it’s Christmas time! Time to put up the tree, hang the lights outside, shop till you drop, drink Egg Nog and be Merry! Oh, and I almost forgot, well actually I was hoping my youngest wouldn’t remember, it’s time for Chris the Mouse to come back for a visit!

Chris the Christmas Mouse

 (If you would like to read his adventures from last year click here.)

My daughter still has her “Elf Bed” from last year and since we don’t have a Christmas Tree up yet she made a drawing of a tree to hang somewhere to put the bed under! She tried to set it all up last week but trying to bide some time for myself, I told her Santa won’t let the Elves or Chris the Mouse leave the workshop until at least December 1st.

This morning she remembered that it was December 1st! She was all happy that Chris would be able to come back tonight! Why can’t kids have crappy memories like their parents!

So, like the stupid ass great mother that I am, I have typed up Santa’s Letter for the arrival of Chris the Mouse tonight.

I will try to give a weekly update on the “Great Adventures of Chris the Mouse!”
