Country Mouse Visits City Mouse

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

We had a wonderful Christmas visiting my sister and her family in the city.

Although they live in the city, you don't feel like it when you're at their place because their home is surrounded by pines. You can barely see any of the neighboring houses.

And the best part of all, my brother-in-law built this house - by himself!

Come on in and I'll show you around.

As you come into the foyer, the dining room is to the right and the library is to the left.

I love this old Aames Chair she has in the library. You don't see many around these days. I actually spotted one in Painted Groove's basement the other day - I told her she needed to get that thing dusted off and in the house!

Here's Jack with Miss High Falutin' and the baby. Oh, wait a minute, you can't see the baby.

There he is! What a sweetie... We couldn't get enough of him. He's at that super sweet age where he just smiles and laughs all the time. He thinks his two big sisters are just too funny!

Here I am with the baby and the two nieces. I just wish my other two nephews had been there too....

These two little girls are having a very difficult time containing themselves right now. They know we will be opening presents in just a little while.

This is my oldest niece, I call her J Bean. Oh, to be 8 years old and this full of excitement ... I hope her whole life is filled with this much joy.

And a Merry Christmas was had by all....
