All in the Family




We are grandparents again. This time I named our newest alpaca baby after my grandmother. You see, I had a visit from my two uncles from the Netherlands this week. They are 90 and 94 years young. While we were reminiscing about their youth they mentioned that their mother's name (my grandmother) was Nellie.

Bingo. I had a name for my next baby alpaca. I will name her after my grandmother. She died before I ever got to know her. My parents immigrated to the United States and I only saw my grandmother once when I was three.

Now I get to see her,my namesake, every day :)
Here are some photos of the rest of the gang.

Awww...this is GREAT, Mom. I love the funny names. Kate Goesling..hilarious! I think it's so cool that you have an alpaca named Nellie, after your grandmother. As soon as you can, get her wool and we need to make a scarf or something. :)

Please check out my blog, too. I have lots of good stuff about your grandbabies...since you'll see them next week!! :)

I love Nellie! That picture of her is so beautiful. My ex-husband is a sculptor, and so I see things through his sculptor's eyes. It is so sculptural! She looks so cozy. Thanks for sharing.
