capture

Last evening Weston and I spotted a mouse in our living room.

What's more fun than watching Weston bound down the stairs while wacking the broom and dodging flying broom debris?

Hearing Weston scream like a little girl when the mouse suddenly changes direction.

Ah, good times.

I yelled in a manly way as I tried to smash it with a broom. Meanwhile, you were screaming and standing on top of a chair.

Yep... In a way, that's technically my big brother. (Said as proudly as possible.)

OK I am seriously laughing far too much at this story. Thanks Brigette for the accurate portrayal of my nephew. He is Bart's son.
I remember when Bart had to hide at my Moms while Marion took care of animals.

That happened to us in our house when we lived in Idaho Falls. We raced the mouse up the stairs, and it went into a little hole in the kitchen cabinets. With the evidence we found, our next project became replacing the kitchen cabinets. We also learned that mice like peanut butter in their traps.

That makes me laugh. Adam killed a mouse at the cabin, and he did the exact same thing. Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my blog...I wish I had a ton of knowledge to share...I didn't even realize they aren't making the Nikon D/40 anymore. I know my mother-in-law has a Nikon D/80 and loves it...I actually really want one. As far as the quality of my pictures...my best pictures are outside...I still haven't mastered inside pictures, I need a better lit house! I do have a picture program that came with my camera (Nikon View) and I do a lot of my editing with that program. I do not have photoshop, but hope to someday. With Nikon View I can mess with the picture quite a bit. Anyway, someone told me that the Pioneer Women blog, have you seen it?, has a lot about cameras, when I find the link I'll leave you a note, anyway, kids are great to take pictures of, especially for their parents because they know us! Love ya!
