THE mouse.

** Grandma Jensen, please refrain from looking at the pictures below.  You will have a heart attack if you see them**

It all started a week ago, when I was in the bathroom getting ready.  I heard the rest of the family in the living room screaming and jumping around.  I come out to hear that they've found a mouse inside.
Then I see it run from the desk to the kitchen, behind the fridge.  From there, we didn't know what to do and waited until we heard from it again.

Come yesterday morning as we are sitting eating breakfast, I heard some scratching noise in the living room then see the mouse running underneath the couch to behind the TV.....remember to breathe...
Then a few minutes later, Emma sees something move in the kitchen and I look over right when I see a mouse climbing down from the cabinet under the kitchen sink.

Ok, can't handle it.  Calling friend with cat....
Jack the cat was dropped off at the house around 8:20 am.
I leave the house to get OUT of the house and go walking for about an hour.  Karlye and I go inside the house to see if we can find the luck...we searched  for a half hour and couldn't find the cat!

I then left around 11:40 to run errands and after 5 minutes of Joe looking, he finds the cat in our sleeping bags in the basement sleeping.  I get home around 3 and give back Jack the cat to Karlye.
I bought some mouse traps and got them set up that evening.  I dabbed some peanut butter on them and put one behind the entertainment center in the living room, one behind the fridge and one under the kitchen sink. It was probably around 9 or so when I did that.

Come 10:50 pm...right after we had watched Lie to Me and I had just picked up the kitchen and started the dishwasher.  And that's when I heard the SNAP!
I run to Joe and told him I think we got one!  But I wasn't going to go freaked out....
It was the one behind the TV in the living room.
ewww....which means it was just sitting under the entertainment center the whole time we were watching TV and eating dinner...I wouldn't be surprised that there's a nest under there or something!

Anyways, we had to take a picture...for funnies...for prosperity...the girls even wanted to be woken up if we caught one.  So I went and dragged them out of bed at 11 pm to show them.  They thought it was pretty cool.

Here's the little bugger.  Die mouse Die!
these were taken with the zoom lense so I wouldn't have to be so close to take  even looking at them still give me the creepies...
