My sister is home for Thanksgiving break!!! So Jesse, Audrey, and I headed on over to my mom's and Jesse and my sister got to meet. I only got to see my sister for about 15-30 minutes before she took off to go hang out with her boyfriend and friends. I haven't seen her since mid August, so even though it was brief, it was still nice to see her. I plan to see her again this weekend anyway. Oh yea, my mom gave my hair a little trim too (and then on Sunday I dyed it just a tad darker).
We also got to meet my mom's new alpacas. Yes, my mom now has alpacas and is getting 1 more, a miniature donkey, and some chickens too. I don't know if I've ever seen an alpaca up close. I know I've passed alpaca farms but I don't think I've ever pet one or fed one. Having them eat out of your hand... I don't even know how to describe what that feels like but it is weird. Homer is definitely food motivated and seems like his stomach is a bottomless pit. Bufford on the other hand is apparently a divo. My mom says he has an attitude. While giving Homer snacks, Bufford kept his distance observing from far away. I was so determined to pet him. I walked slowly and quietly trying to get to him. Hell, I even tried walking like an alpaca (but not on all fours) and started humming and making clicking noises to try to get him to let me pet him. My mom and Jesse found it hysterical and y'all probably think I'm crazy but I wanted to gain his trust. Apparently alpacas hum a lot and they make a clicking noise when they play sometimes- so that's why I was doing that. He finally let me pet him for a quick nanosecond but that was it. Oh and guess what??? Miss scaredy pants Audrey wasn't scared of the alpacas! As soon as we let her into the yard (not in where the alpacas are), she darted to their fence. She was watching them and running up and down along the fence line. It was so shocking and cute. Moments like these make me so proud of her.
Ok, I am really having issues concentrating right now, sooo I'm just going to end this post with pictures from when I went to my mom's house.
Doesn't she look so adorabull in her new fleece hoody from Baxter Boo? All ready to go to Mee Maw's.

Bufford, the divo.
And the wiggle butts take off!
They all have the same hoodie but in different colors.
Three little piggies.
Gretta is in the yellow, Audrey is in the pink, and George is in the green.
Whatchu lookin' at?
If you've been looking at my Instagram lately, you've already seen a sneak peak of the bedroom and one of the dog beds. And the Christmas cards came! So be on the lookout for upcoming posts on the Christmas cards and dog beds. I hope the work week goes by quickly for everyone!
