My Little Mousling

Today was supposed to be Mother Goose Day at pre-school. But alas, eight or more inches of snow falling last night caused school to be cancelled. And it's still snowing.

While preparing for MGD, Abby decided she wanted to do "Hickory, Dickory, Dock" and to dress up as a mouse. My sister suggested a headband with ears and a little tail. So I went to WM in search of some faux fur. While there, I found the cutest little pattern for a mouse costume and bought the necessary fabric and notions to complete it. When I showed it to Karen, she said, "Have fun with that!" But then we started laying it out and cutting and a few hours later, we had ourselves a cute mouse hat and the makings of a body. She is an amazing seamstress!!

Because we were so involved in the project, I decided to order Chinese take-out and it worked out well, because Monday was the beginning of Chinese New Year. Too bad it's not the Year of the Mouse, cause we would have been really set. Sister finished it up yesterday afternoon. It is super cute!

Monday afternoon, Abby was practicing some of her nursery rhymes. Here is "Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater."

So we're spending the day indoors with a little mouse running around in our house! How can I say "no" to this face?? It makes me smile every time I look at it!

And hopefully, the teachers will re-schedule the MGD so she can do her nursery rhyme in costume with all her friends.
