An evening with the elders

Today was such a good day! We had visitors coming over, so we did a little bit of cleaning, and much as we hate to take time out of our schedule to clean, it always makes things better to have the place clean. So first there was that.

Then, we got a package from our Nanny in Alabama! And we opened it, and it was a pair of super cute amigurumi cats! Aaaaaaaahhh! They're adorable! And we're going to post a picture on Facebook, but tomorrow when we have better lighting. We also have to email her a thank you, but we didn't get to it right away, because by the time we opened the package, it was almost time for our visitors to show up!

And who were our visitors? The missionaries! From the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It would seem that the missionaries in our area are doing a thing right now where they're going to the members' houses to give practice lessons (and, as usual, encourage us to share the gospel more with the people we know). So tonight they taught us about the Restoration--when Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father appeared to Joseph Smith and restored the organization of the church that was used in Christ's day. ...Or They told Joseph that's what his job was going to be. There was a lot that had to be done before that, and we didn't even get to the Book of Mormon.

What we did not do was offer the missionaries any brownies. We made some last night and then neglected to eat them, so we had a full tin and everything (although they were a day old). I think the main reason for that, though, is that we were having too much fun talking. We tend to prefer conversation to food, so we're not really likely to interrupt a conversation to eat anything. But the point is, it was a fun night.

Tonight I'm thankful for almost meeting our Sailor Moon quota despite an extra-wordy Edens Zero, the super adorable amigurumi cats that our Nanny sent us, having a lovely time talking with the missionaries, still having brownies to look forward to (someone has to eat them), and having a slightly cleaner apartment.
