An Early Christmas Celebration

My niece and nephew-in-law, Liz and Andy, were here last week for an early Christmas!  It’s a very special time when our family can come out!  We had a WONDERFUL visit, most of the time spent talking, laughing and just enjoying being a family!  One of the highlights was a trip to one of my favorite alpaca ranches, Thunder Mountain Alpacas.

 First, Liz had to introduce herself to the alpaca herd guard dog, Daisy Mae.Image

Then on to the alpacas.  Liz grew up on a farm in Kentucky raising baby calves for her parents and grandparents.  So she was at home with the animals.


Andy is a townie, but having farmers as in-laws, he has gotten his share of country living.  Image ImageImageImage 

A BIG thank you to Lisa, owner of Thunder Mountain Alpaca Ranch, for inviting us to see her beautiful animals!Image
