Sigh of Relief SEIturday

Sei-Chan: Wel, that was the week that was! We are all feeling quite exhausted after all that endless excitement, and ready to take it easy. #1 is safely at her cottage in Prince Edward Island. Ms. R is taking good care of us (and of the squirrels too!). What we are aiming for now is peace and quiet.

Before she left, #1 did a few photo shoots of me and was rather happy with the results, so here are a couple of photos for your viewing pleasure.

Firstly, #1 thinks this is one of the cutest photos of me asleep:

And how about this for a super portrait?!

Looking simultaneously adorable, serious and supervisory, don't you think?

I guess I have to do squirrel duty again this week. Here is a baby shot that #1 took just before leaving:

Well, at least he is a really good colour match with me!

But there is more!!! GUESS WHAT? Today is our FIFTH BLOGAVERSARY! To see our very first few posts, you can go here. Back then, it was just Tommy and Sen-Chan. We can barely believe we have been blogging for so long. It has been five years of wonderful encounters, terrible heartbreak, warm welcomes, and an ever-expanding family. We are glad we are The Poupounette and we are deeply grateful for all of you, Dear Friends.
