Zany Action on a Crazy Contraption!

...that's just what the box said! We found a vintage Mouse Trap Game at Goodwill! I knew that the kids would just love it. I was right! Even John and I play with it. We were both under-privileged children (; who didn't have this game growing up. We'll just say we're making up for lost time.

Gwyneth even got in some playing. A very short amount of "playing" until her brothers told her that she couldn't disassemble it. (That's why she is throwing a fit!)
A lot of fun for only $2.99!

I was thhiiiiiis close to buying that game on Monday at Goodwill!!! Too funny! Instead I scored a Pamper Chef stone, puffy hangers, lined basket, and a couple books. Only had $10 with me and was so gonna buy that game! Ha!

I thought I'd give it to Shaelynn for her 2nd birthday - I know Heather would have looooved me for that one! Teehee!

We were there Monday, too! (about 10:00). I got canning jars, four shelves that I'm going to put in the boys' room, shoes for gwyneth, a vintage sheet, a basket for Gwyneth's bedroom, a toy for hutch and gwyneth (the mouse trap game is technically haydn's) and some clothes for gwyneth!! (I love that place). Heather will probably be glad that you passed it up!

Well, Ellen- I would just repay you by passing the game down to your kids one day....wa-hahahaha!

Tricia- what a great find! You and Ellen must be kindred spirits when it comes to Goodwill! LoL
