Mouse Meets Wolfe

Every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, my family and friends come to bake cookies at the Wolfe Family Cookie Bake. I mean a lot of cookies... like so many you never want to see another cookie again for a while... like a day or so.

Hmm, we probably should have warned my nephew Ed about the Starlight mice.

Our two-year-old friend Maxine was not intimidated at all by the appearance of a Starlight Mouse. In fact she found them quite enchanting and took one home with her.

Learning to make cookies from the more experienced, this Starlight Mouse watched gratefully, nibbling on few dough scraps while he watched.

You can see that this is an especially good table to be at if you like sugar decorations on your cookies (click on the photo for an up-close look).

A Starlight Mouse quickly heads toward bit of chocolate dough when Lorna isn't looking.

Fortunately for man and mouse, we serve sandwiches between desserts. So while the rest of us were slaving over pans of hot cookies, Dave and Nick were busy making sandwiches.

For a Starlight Mouse, life can't get much better than this.
