The Christmas Mouse

Here is a true story written by Caleb that tells the tale of some unexpected Christmas Day excitement! I've left most of the original spelling in!

The Christmas Mouse (by Caleb Jeffries)

On December 25, 2016, my brother Odin was SCREMING! It wasint untl somwon wint up that we notist a mouse in his room!!!!

He said 'Odin say hi mouse.'

So we took him out. When we wok up he said 'Wars (wheres) Odies mouse go?'

We didn't take him vary far.

We don't know if he cam back or we had 2 mise.

But we fawnd (found) a mouse agane (again)!!!!

We acsadintly chast it into a wall and codint get it owt!  (We accidently chased it into a wall and couldn't get it out)

Evrytime that we sat a mouse trap it got the food off it and it didn't close.

We didn't find him aftr that!

The End

Update: This story didn't capture the moment when Caleb, Odin and Linda were all huddled screaming on my bed as Alan and Greg chased the mouse around the room!  We did catch him a few days later, but another one was spotted a few days after. Time for a cat, I think!!

OH MY!! just remember that mice travel along walls, so you have to set your traps along the walls..and they like peanut butter and also cereal bars....good luck! Where is there one, there are more! I would have been on the bed with Linda.....:-)
