#spiritsays: Germaine was happy to stand in for Garland at the reindeer farm this season, allowing little hands to pet and pull. Expecting to make some extra bucks, to his surprise the payoff was so much more. It was learning the meaning of the season; it was love.

Nurturing their children’s mojo, parents are the real wing wearers.
#spiritsays: Kaitlyn knew that raising little animals was a commitment of colossal proportions but then unconditional love always was.
