Penny Joins the Family

Thelma here again! Penny will be taking over in a bit but I thought I'd start out the story of Momma's birthday yesterday!

June 21st rolled around and Momma turned 27! After the excitement of some birthday presents Momma and Poppa started talking about going to pick up one of my sisters to come live with us in Minneapolis. They talked to me and I promised not to be jealous but rather excited instead!! I wanted to go along but I can get a little fiesty so they decided to leave me at home while they drove North.

Penny taking over! :)

Momma and Poppa came in and I was a little shy but very calm. When Poppa got his hands on me I scurried up to his shoulders and hung out there(the people watching me remembered him picking up Thelma!). Momma picked me up from his shoulder, gave me a little cuddle, and then it was back home with them to see Thelma again and join the family.

Here is a picture from the ride home:

Momma and Poppa let Thelma and I reconnect and hang out in the bathtub for a while. That was sure crazy times! (Thelma was chasing me! It was fun!!)

Then Momma let me into my new home to explore for a little while. It worked out well because I had a little alone time before Thelma and I played again.

As you can see, I'm still not so sure about peas. Thelma on the other hand comes running any time Momma has some in her hands.

Anyways, then Thelma joined me and we curled up together. It's fun being here with Momma, Poppa, and my sister!
