Happy Belated Thanksgiving

Hello all,

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but we have not been doing anything interesting. We have pretty much stayed at home for the past three weeks since I have been trying to get over a lingering cold. We had a Thanksgiving dinner party with some friends in Tsuruga on Saturday, November 21st. Jonathan made delicious pumpkin pie from scratch from Japanese kabocha, which is like American pumpkin but different. Kabocha is smaller and denser than pumpkin, and the skin is dark green. We got a package from home this week, which always brightens our day. Work is going well for both of us and we are getting excited to come home in a few short weeks. For those of you who are interested, I will put up our address in Japan at the end of this post since we have been getting a lot of requests for information recently. I believe Jonathan will be flying back to Indianapolis on December 17th, and I will be headed back on December 23rd. We both return to Japan early January, I think the 2nd and 4th. I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, and we look forward to meeting up with some of you soon!

Laura (and Jonathan)
