A Family Portrait.....


FH has been trying to get a family picture for the album.... it is proving rather difficult..... you see us Muleteers are prone to fidget rather..... oops!  These pictures give you a little glimpse in to our funny little family.   MH - is busy behind the camera trying to do as he's told (we think he may have the patience of a saint ;-), he is telling FH to look like she's enjoying herself instead of looking at us minis. Surely that means she is enjoying herself?
Dragon is busy looking all lovey dovey at us minis and wondering why we're taking so long to behave? She then starts to pull a 'mule face' when we decide to stand all pretty.....


So then I decide to get bored and have a little munch... I thought this is supposed to be family dinner time?


In the meantime The Mini is getting jealous as ever... and is desperately trying to climb in to FH's pocket as he is (in his mind) Number 1 .... we are pretty sure that The Mini has invisible apron strings attached to FH.



In amongst all of this FH was getting hot and bothered, wanted to give in to The Mini's requests for attention and abandon any idea of calm and order in the Muleteer Family.... why change the habit of a lifetime?  Oh yeah and Catanian was laid a few metres away watching the proceedings in a supercilious cat way :-)



Ok so the family portrait might need a few more tries.... oh well we sure had fun!

We are looking forward to a lovely family weekend with our extended family, Granny is coming to stay (that means extra apples and cuddles :-) and we might even get to see Aunts, Uncles and Cousins - hooray! 


With all that in mind here's my quote for the day....


Family is not an important thing.  It's everything.
Michael J. Fox

  4. Lovely photos, Dragon did you forget to look all fierce? How is everyone supposed to believe you are a fire breathing dragon if you look cute?
    Rolly take her aside and have a word will you?

    1. Oops! Oh yes Zoe you are so right, must concentrate on fire breathing and looking fierce, at the moment I am wetting myself laughing at the thought of Rolly taking me aside for a word about looking fierce... hehe.... fierce and Rolly in the same sentence LOL. Happy weekend Zo!

  5. All looking lovely and shiny in those gleaming summer jackets... my favourite! The picture of health. We love family and great to hear you have all been happy... I confess to a secret liking of courgette and tomato soup yum yum and a fondness for slow worms (not in my soup or to eat) just to look at. :-)

    1. Thanks Jo! We are all having a great summer, lots of things going on to keep everyone entertained and best of all - mostly nice weather :-) Dragon is in such a soppy mood at the moment, lots of snoozing in the sun, bums presented for scratching and droopy ears - think she's gone soft ;-) Hope all good with you x
