Every year the boys make an ornament to put on the tree. This year I saw these sweet mice on Martha Stewart’s website and thought they’d be ideal. I cut the template out (oops, you are supposed to print it out at 150% – I just did 100%) and lay it on wool felt sheets. I cut. The boys stitched the ears on. I stitched on the eyes and noses.
I then put candy canes on the grocery store list. Dear Husband took the boys to the toy section to browse and asked my older son, “Why does mom want candy canes?”
His response, “I don’t know, to stick up some mouses’ butts.”
There you have it. We have candy canes up mouses’ butts on our tree this year and for many years to come.
