(Jumping with joy)
We are very thankful that we are done with Christian's MULA (mandatory unpaid leave of absense) and thankful that we could spend the week with his brother, Adam, and family (well, mostly the family...Adam had to work like most normal people). We are thankful that they put us to work stacking wood for their fireplace, teaching us how to can chicken and soup (and thankful that Jennie canned applesauce for me!), and thankful that the kids got to play with their cousin-friends (as Nathan called them). We are also thankful that our nephew, Jacob, was baptized, (Oh, wait, that's Joshua...Let me try again)(Yup, that's Jacob)(can you count how many Green boys are in this picture?)
and that we could spend a few days with Grandpa and Bethany and Mom and Pop Johanson.
We are also very thankful that we got to spend a day in Maine! With unbelievable good weather for November, we played on the rocky beach, enjoyed a picnic and played some ultimate frisbey, and finished off the day with some outlet shopping in Kittery. Oh, and we also visited Stonewall Kitchen, which is this amazing gourmet food-stuff store (with samples). And I'm thankful to be able to add 2 states (New Hampshire, Maine) to my list of states visited.(Well, at least we tried...)
Oh, and I'm thankful that I could spend an afternoon walking all over Cambridge (in the rain) chatting with my dear friend and old roommate, Sherilyn
