Misty Hill Stu­dio

Just Cross Stitch - - Recipes & Memories - Holly DeVivo

Does Santa Mouse visit your house on Christ­mas Eve? Be­ing small, he is of­ten over­looked, but he trav­els around the world with Santa Claus ev­ery year. If you leave a piece of cheese along with the cook­ies and milk and rein­deer food, per­haps he’ll leave some­thing for you. My sis­ters and I had a tiny Christ­mas tree in our bed­room. On Christ­mas morn­ing, we would awake to find lit­tle pack­ages tied to the branches, with lit­tle tags on the pack­ages, ad­dressed to each of us in the tini­est hand­writ­ing. My mother first in­tro­duced me to him through the pages of a book. I loved the story so much I had the en­tire thing mem­o­rized by the age of 2, recit­ing it with the same in­flec­tion as my mother. He still vis­its me, al­though he must be ex­tra care­ful as I now re­side with a few cats!
