decorating for Christmas #2

with 2 comments

Early in December, I wasn’t certain I’d have the energy to decorate for Christmas in a big way. I asked my husband, “If you only had one decoration this Christmas (besides the tree), what would it be?” He answered, without any hesitation, “The singing mice.” I have since rallied and put up lots of decorations, but the singing mice were the first to be pulled from their box!


We bought the singing mice in the 1990s when animatronics hit the stores in a big way. Each mouse is about 9 inches tall. When you press his paw, each mouse sings, in a rather high pitch, “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”. As he sings, the mouse’s cheeks glow red and he wiggles his book of carols. If you are able to press three paws at once, the mice sing in cute harmony.  Their singing always brings a smile!



Merry Christmas to you all from our singing mice!

    • Hi Robin. Merry Christmas to you too! This time last year, I sent your ‘cardinal in the snow’ cards to all my friends and family … this year no Christmas cards … so much to do, so little time!
