Charli Misty Powell

Our new pet chinchilla. She is like a mix between a rabbit, squirrel, and a tiny kangaroo.
Tullaia wants something small and furry to take care of since her baby brother is not too fond of being cared for anymore. She thought a chinchilla would be nice after a zookeeper friend took us behind the scenes at the zoo.
I told her we would never have one because they are quite a bit more expensive than other small rodents.
But a family on the home school forum was looking for a home for their 4 year old chinchilla. The daughter is going to college. So we got to surprise the kids with a pretty exciting Christmas gift.

This is so great. If the kids ever do go to a traditional school setting, they will probably be accused of lying. "What do you mean you had a pet Chinchilla?!? And your friend Archer had a snake? Ya, right!"

Also, your winter pictures are just amazingly beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
