The little donkey was hiding behind his momma, but when I walked up closer he allowed me to pet him. Shannon and the kids came out a few minutes later, because there was no way R.J. and Lily were going to sleep without seeing the new baby. They were amazed at this special little creature that had "magically" appeared while they had been in Indianapolis. It was hard to go into the house and go to sleep because everyone just wanted to stare at this incredible surprise.
The donkey spent about a week without a name until it was decided that he (initially we thought it was a she) would be called Jellybean. Lily and RJ insisted that we also use Cupcake as part of his name so Jellybean Cupcake, the surprise baby donkey, became his official name.
