Happy news about all the family !!!

Mom and Dad went to the market with Ollie and saw their lovely friend Kate.
Kate is the queen of knitting and she made a lovely jumper for me and I wear all the time because it's freezing here in Melbourne !

She also made hats for all of us, I like this one but unfortunately so does my sister and she took it !

This one is a baby hat and it suits me very well !

Mom is now much better, she doesn't look like a raccoon any more, Dad is taking good care of her.
She wants to thank all of you who wished her a good recovery and Doctor Moss and his team: Stacey, Mike, Sammy, Jessica, Brooke, Lee.... they are all lovely.

During her recovery, Mom was busy like a bee, she made this hoodie (it is fake fur you know)

It's so soft and fashionable, too bad Mom I won't give it back,  ha ha ha ha ha !!!

Behind us you can see the beautiful blanket Kate knitted for Mom for us, Mom made a felt hat with flowers, I'm keeping that one too. Mom makes a lot of things just for us, ha ha ha ha ha !
"Bella give me back my hoodie, don't be cheeky !!!"

Our beautiful A2 was very happy today because she passed her mid year Nutritional Therapy exams, congratulations !

M. was busy painting a little kennel for a little doggie Mom found at the market.
He is on vacation at the moment but he managed to catch chicken pox, so he was upset because he would have preferred catching it during the school term so he could be away for one week, it's not fair, he said !!!

Nice work M !

Our sister A1 came back from a trip with her darling Ray at Uluru, in the middle of the desert of Australia and we wanted to share these beautiful photos.

A1 is so happy she jumps like a kangaroo !

It's especially beautiful at sunset...

"G'day mate, how're ya doing today ?
Sorry I missed your paw, I lost my glasses..."

"Yummy, I want more !"

"I love you too, you're very pretty, but I already have A1..."

"Congratulations A1, what a lovely baby you have, we can see you're very proud !"

"Rock a bye baby kangaroo, rock a bye baby..."

A1 loves lizards, which one do you think she prefers ?

"G'day mate, I'm Gary the Goanna..."

Aboriginal rock painiting

A1 is rock and rolling on a camel.

Take care my friends and have a great week!

Colourful love birds by our Mom who wanted to share it with all of you
Mom loves drawing birds but we have ordered for next time a picture with funny little doggies...

All such lovely photo's - and am glad everyone is doing okay and is keeping busy. Keep warm over there - we're in the middle of summer here and Julep and Derby don't want to spend a lot of time outside.

Take good care and all the best, Katie from
