Exciting!

This whole giveaway thing is so exciting! The Faerie Castle is always open to free things!!! I love free stuff. I am frugal... nay, I am cheap! And I love to give things to other people... I may just host a monthly giveaway here!

I also think this carnival is really cool because I have visited blogs that I never would have seen otherwise... even some on accident! LOL

Things are ok, here. I have a situation with a walking boy! Mal (the baby) is walking... at 10 mos old. I am trying to figure out how to upload video to the computer from my new camera. If I figure it out I will post some video of the walking wonder.

I also have a mouse in my house. Or more than one. I have caught one. And I had a glue trap disappear... which means a mouse stole it! Why? Why would he steal my trap? I cannot find it anywhere. I hope I don't SMELL it soon! And then I have left traps the last 2 nights and no mice in them. But we have seen the darn thing running around! I am sorry. I could clean my house from here til eternity and not have all of the crumbs up. The boys are messy! So... any suggestions on mouse extermination? Short of getting a cat, because I so totally am not dealing with baby's in the litter box!

Anyway, I will be back later with some more amusing stories and maybe even a recipe... I have to jumpstart the hubby! LOL

Well if you aren't set on a live trap....
When we had mice in Las Vegas, we used the poison in the nearest hole/cupboard to the droppings. You don't have to worry about them dying and smelling up your house because as the poison works they feel extra thirsty and go outside of the house in search of water.

(A friend of mine had mice in her car recently and tried the peanutbutter/cracker traps. the mice kept stealing the crackers out of the traps and licking the peanut butter off the trap door. Apparently mice all over the country are getting smarter!

Mice just suck. I don't think it has anything to do with how clean your house is. If they want to come in they do. I don't have any tips but I will say that it sounds like you may have a huge mouse because apparently he ate the trap.

I'm afraid I don't know much about mouse extermination. Now, if you had an ELEPHANT problem, having the mice around could be helpful with that. lol!

good luck with the mouse problem. At least it is not rats! Remember ours? Mom
