One of the kids’ Christmas gifts flew back from Africa with us – Mariah’s two cats and Cameron’s dog. They had a hard first week, but have since adjusted to being American. Can’t wait till they see snow for the first time – especially the Husky!
Thank you Marlene for sending the pets to us in Arkansas and all your help!
