2012 was a year of growth and change for the Draper’s (does that just go without saying – for all of us?!)

Some of my favorite things about this year…

Concerts and comedians

Elliot Jay Merkle’s birth (making us Aunt and Uncle for the 9th time!)

Celebrating 4 years of marriage

Many zoo trips (w/Aunts, as a family, and w/grandparents!)

Sullivan Joel’s birth!

Mylin Hadassah turning two

Joel and I getting baptized!

Becoming marriage mentors for engaged couples at our church

Joel completing a 2 year discipleship class at church

Traveling to Alabama to visit family

Lots of reading and new recipes and pinterest projects!

Befriending Virginia, our 93 year old neighbor (look forward to a post about her soon!)

Spending every day of December concentrating on Jesus and His Nativity

We are beyond blessed with more than we will ever deserve

I do not know what God has provided so much for us, but I hope we can use it to strengthen our marriage, raise our children well in His image, and serve orphans and widows in our community and world!
