Yea. I know. I promised pictures and then I promptly dropped off the face of the earth for a week. But you don't know what kind of a week its been around here. There's been things like baseball, flag football, AWANA, a mind-numbing job and little baby animals being born around here.
You didn't know we had animals?
Why, yes. Yes we do. After all, I am a vet's wife. You can't get away without having animals if you're married to a vet.
And for my animal-lovin' husband, not just any animal will do. Oh, no. We don't just simply have two dogs and a cat...we have to have some exotic pets too.
I draw the line at reptiles and birds.
Have I ever told you that we have an alpaca? I could swear that I've told you this little bit of news, but I just can't find the link to the original story.
Anyway...our lovely alpaca had a baby last week. And she's so flippin' cute I just had to post some pictures. I had meant to get some cuter ones when we went to visit her this weekend, but alas, my camera decided that was the very minute it needed to run out of battery.
So Shad used his cell phone.
Anyway...here she is. See? I told you she was cute!
But there's one problem. The poor thing doesn't have a name. And Shad and I being Shad and I, we're not making this any easier.
Do you remember how tough it was for us to come up with names for our kids?
Ummmm...yea. We're at it again, but this time we're arguing over a little black alpaca's name.
So...here's where you come in. I need your very best alpaca baby names...and not just any names will do. We actually have a farm name, although we don't have an honest to goodness farm. Our imaginary farm is called Syemya Farm - Russian (we hope) for 'family'...so its our 'Family Farm.' Cute, huh?!
And in true Syemya Family farm form, we're naming all of our animals with Russian/Ukrainian names.
See? I told you we weren't making it easy.
So help me out here.
