Cria Naming Contest Winner!!!!!! Astra

Drum Roll please - Here he is - Astra
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Thank you so much for all the suggestions, friends. My first choice was Andromeda until I remembered "she" was the Princess who was saved from the sea monster by Perseus. Our next girl will be Andy, I'm sure.

This is what my cyber friend Marianne submitted:

Astra is my name for the new baby...it refers to the Kansas official motto Ad astra per aspera which means "through difficulties to the stars"...which somehow makes me think of your own difficulties losing Smitty and how you have hope and a great family and a new star being born. Much love!

Let me know what you would like from my store, Marianne. Congratulations. Find $25 worth of "stuff".

I'm going to leave all those names up for a while for everyone to enjoy.

How fun! I'm so glad you like the name Astra. I sure do wish I could have an Alpaca for my own...but I will be adopting Astra in my heart. :) Thank you for the gift, Maple.

Astra is a beautiful name!

Congrats Marianne. I am sure will love whatever you get from Maple's etsy shop. I am in love with her spinning fibers. (I am a newbie spinner and she has been so encouraging.)

Astra Update...He is a curious, charming, brave little fellow! He will often seek humans out and approach them on his own. He is sure to make you smile. I can't wait to watch his fabulous personality continue to develop. Another wonderful addition to Maple's North Star herd!

Oh, and before I forget to mention this, I just nominated you for an award in my blog, Maple. :)
