    Mia is a mouse. But not an ordinary mouse. Mia is a most extraordinary mouse.

    Mia was created by @Louise Williams and sent to Miss Shirley Martin as a gift. She was brought to life by love. It was love at first sight when Miss Shirley saw Mia.

    The first thing we had to do was have her first check-up at the doctor.

    First we had to sign in.

    While we were waiting, Mia played with the toys in the children's area.

    The nurse weighed Mia. She weighed 4 ounces. That's the perfect weight for a mouse.

    Then she measured Mia. She was 13½ inches. That's the perfect length for a mouse.

    Then the doctor listened to her heart. It was a perfect heart for a mouse.

    She got her first mouse shots.

    The doctor put a band aid over her oopsie where she got the shot.

    And gave her a sticker for being such a good girl about getting her shot.

    That's all it will let me upload now. Stay tuned for all of Mia's adventures and (shudder) misadventures.

    I was going to Walmart one day. I decided to take Mia with me. She had never been shopping.

    We looked at the flowers.

    Then the jewelry.

    She wanted to look at toys.

    Miaandbunnies2.JPG

    We saw some gnomes. She liked them.

    We looked at some hardware. She wasn't too interested in that.

    We tried on a hat. It was a little bit too big.

    Then we went to the shoe department. She saw some ruby red slippers! She loved them. Fortunately we found a pair just her size. And a dress to match.

    She dreams of being a famous ballerina.

    We tried on the pink earrings. Then some blue ones.

    Then we saw some black ones. She liked them. They match her eyes. We bought them.

    We bought a hat for her to wear to the Royal Wedding. Do you think it's suitable to wear to the Royal Wedding?

    And just in case they ask her to be a flower girl:

    Mia takes a trip

    We went to Pigeon Forge.

    We spent the first night in a log cabin on the side of a mountain.

    There was another house at the top of the mountain. Mia trip 20.jpg


    Mia trip 1.jpg

    Mia liked sitting on the deck rail but she had to hold on to keep from falling.

    Mia trip 2.jpg

    It was a long way down.

    Mia trip 1.jpg

    There was another mountain behind her.

    The next day we went to the Judaculla Rock.

    The Judaculla Rock was a sacred site for the Cherokee Indians before the colonization of North America, and this engraved soapstone boulder can still be visited in western North Carolina. The Cherokees believed Juaculla (or Tsul’Kalu) an ancient giant-like creature, landed on the rock while jumping from one mountain to another, and thus the rock bears his seven-fingered hand print.
    There is lingering folklore about ghost sounds being heard around the rock at night, made spookier by the location of a cemetery a few hundred feet away.

    Mia wanted to sit on top of the rock pillar.

    Mia trip 11.jpg

    She thought the signs were interesting.

    Mia enjoyed seeing the Judaculla Rock.

    Next we found a beautiful mountain lake, Bear lake.




    Mia trip 6.jpg

    Mia wanted to go fishing but we left our fishing gear at home.


    Mia trip 8.jpg

    We saw a man on a big boat.

    Mia trip 9.jpg

    He didn't ask us to go fishing with him.

    But Mia had fun just looking.

    Mia trip 10.jpg

    Then on to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood.

    We were browsing through a gift shop in The Island at Pigeon Forge when I saw the perfect necklace for Mia to wear to the Royal Wedding.

    Isn't it lovely? I think it's very becoming on her. She loves it.

    Our invitation still hasn't arrived. I'm sure it will be here any day now.
