I mean, seriously. It's a little out of control. Luckily, there have been some ways I've lessened my insane need for BABY ALPACAS IN MY BACKYARD OMG.
First, was this:
My mother mailed me a baby alpaca for my birthday.
Then, there's this:

Look how cute and helpful!
Heifer, my all-time-number-one-super-favorite non-profit, was tweeting about alpacas. And! That article was written by Little Rocker and all-around awesome gal, Brooke Edwards.
Because, sadly, I can't have a baby alpaca in my backyard, I have to settle for gifting one to someone else- someone who will actually benefit from alpaca ownership, someone who won't (or, maybe they will), squeal whenever they see their alpaca.
Heifer's Knitter's Gift Basket!The Knitter's Basket includes four of our fuzzy friends that are keeping Heifer partner families warm all around the world. Your gift represents a llama, an alpaca, a sheep and an angora rabbit – four animals that provide families with ample wool and endless opportunities to build a better life.
Every Christmas, I give my kids some honeybees, because, well, duh. This year, I think I'll add some alpaca action to the gift. I can't buy an entire Knitter's Gift Basket ($480), but I can buy a share ($48).
Come back here tomorrow, because I'm giving away some chicks(how often do bloggers get to say that?),and you'll also get a look at a very cool new interactive gift-giving option from Heifer.
