happy easter?

This morning we woke up to find that one of our butterflies had hatched! Perfect timing! Right on Easter morning! And just a couple of hours later a second hatched. (We're still waiting on the third).

After finding our pretty little butterfly, I went to the cupboard to get breakfast for the kids. And what did I find?



happy easter??

Gah! That might be the creepiest dead mouse positioning ever.

Nicole said...

Hahaha we killed a mouse this weekend too!! I hate mice! I am glad that you got the sucker!! LOL

Bugs said...

So I want to know how it tasted? You ate it for breakfast, right?

I love moments like this! The first thing that goes through my mind: This is going to make a great blog post!

Yay for pretty butterflies, ew for dead mice.

Hmmm, that happened to us a while ago. I felt bad because every time a mouse got caught in a trap, we had to listen to it squeaking to death.....we finally got smart and bought special sticky paper. Then we just took them outside and poured water on them so they could run off and live out their happy little lives in the field next to our house.

Oh...that's so sad!

The Larson Family said...

C'mon, if we have to look at the dead mouse, you should at least post a picture of the beautiful butterflies ;) ha ha. I hope you don't find anymore nasty rodents!

Sara said...

EVeryone has said it all. Funny and sad and totally gross and the same time. Terrific.

Oh my heavens that is HORRIBLE! I had to enlarge the picture to make sure I was really seeing it right. I bet you loved that. It looks like that mouse gave that trap a run for its money and luckily enough lost. Hope you were still able to have a good Easter after that :)

Christiansen's said...

Oh yeah I also meant to ask you how you are tied to Taylor Andrews Hair Accademy, I noticed you had them on your facebook.

This picture is still stuck in my head. How did the mouse not topple over? It had to weigh more than the trap, right?

Denise said...

I thought I was going to see a picture of a lovely, newly-formed butterfly. So thanks for the dead-mouse-in-a-trap bait and switch. *urp*

That. Is. Skeevy.
