Could it be?

Snow?? This is what we woke up to this morning.
It is only 10 days into October and it is snowing already. The little kids were so excited to see the snow this morning they immediatley wanted to get their boots on and go out and play. They did eventually make it out before it melted and had a little snowball fight with daddy.

I had a baking day yesterday and made 12 loaves of bread. Here is a picture of the 2 loaves of white bread and 4 loaves of peasant bread I made. I also made 4 loaves of banana bread and 2 loaves of cinnamon bread. While I was kneading the bread yesterday Brodie was playing quietly on the floor when all of a sudden I heard him yell "rat, rat". He jumped into the laundry basket that was in the kitchen. Apparently a brave mouse decided to run across the floor while I was standing there baking!! (Did you just get the goosebumps?) Brodie said he ran into the hole that is next to the dishwasher which was right where I was standing. That little sucker had to nearly have touched my feet getting into that hole. Ugh!!

Brodie wouldn't get out of the laundry basket until I "slapped the rat". I told him that is was in fact NOT a rat, but a mouse and that it was gone so it was ok to get out of the basket. We did however spend much of the rest of the afternoon in the bedroom until Daddy got home from work. It just creeps me out to think that it could have ran over my toes. I did put shoes on after the incident.So, today we went and bought a bunch of mouse traps and tonight my kitchen is like a land mine. Hopefully I will catch the sucker. I really hate mice.
