Merry Christmas from all at the mouse house.

It's been a busy time for all of us. I hope everyone has enjoyed the preparations up to the Big Day and will now have a very merry and fun Christmas.
It's been beautiful around the mouse house with fresh fallen snow and all of our wintering birds back to be cared for. I so love looking after them on these cold winter days. Our feeders are busy with blue-jays, chickadees, nut-hatch, downy woodpeckers, juncos, cardinals, mourning doves, crows and our handsome pileated wood-pecker. Our little family of four squirrels show up everyday, too.
Simon disappeared under ground a month ago and I may not see him until spring now. I will miss his sweet face.
Our raccoons are hibernating but will wake up depending on the temperatures and most likely be by to fill up and make a mess at the feeders. They are like teenagers left alone for a weekend. :-b

Annie and Audrey are doing well and have been good girls leaving our Charlie Brown tree alone. I think we brought it home from the field a little too early this year as it is already drooping and changing colour.  Live and learn. It is good that we are not hosting on Christmas day this year and will enjoy gathering with our family at my son's beautiful country home.

"Merry Christmas everyone. Enjoy your time with friends and family and may God Bless You in 2018."

hugs, Deb, the retired-guy, Annie & Audrey. xoxo

  15. Oh, things are so Christmas-y and cute and now I saw on Instagram that the mouse house cupboard is de-Christmased. It must be done. I haven't put away the Christmas crockery yet OR taken the tree down. I will. We have had lots of "grand" visitors this week.
    Sending love to you, good Deb.

  16. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Deb, and that the New Year brings you and your loved ones much health and happiness! xx Karen
