    The days in Sun Prairie pass so quickly, and it is already time for us to publish our monthly Draper’s Diary update. This month we are especially excited to unveil our new blog-based design for the Draper’s Diary. It allows for many new features including

    • The ability to have comments associated with our post (instead of all lumped in the guestbook) – simply click the “Comments” link the title area of the post to add your thoughts to the Draper’s Diary
    • Easier updates for us
    • Sermons and Bible study by the Vicar
    • RSS feeds to Posts and Comments
    • Automatic archives
    • Categories for organizing – we’ve added a “Question of the Week” category and hope you will take a moment to give us your answer!
    • An interactive map on which we hope all of our readers will add a push pin with their location so we can find out where everyone is who reads about us
    • And lots more that we are just beginning to learn about.

    We have begun work on moving all of the history of the Draper’s Diary to this new location, and we will keep the old version available until we are done.

    Bens Carnival

    The big event in November was Benjamin’s 6th birthday! It’s hard to believe he was one when we left Texas to start our grand adventure! We celebrated in style, hosting a “Birthday Carnival” for Ben and 12 of his kindergarten classmates. The whole family had fun creating the carnival games, including everyone’s favorite, “The Man Eating Monster”, which was really a very friendly crawl through tube made from moving boxes opened end-to-end. Stanley and Luke did a terrific job of managing some of the games and helping out in many other ways as well. Ben received so many nice gifts too! It was a great day!

    Instead of pictures this month, we have posted some fun videos that we created. Give ’em a watch and let us know what you think!

    Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Please take a moment to answer our “Question of the Week” on the topic of Thanksgiving. We pray that your days are filled with thanks for the grace showered on each of us through Jesus Christ! Until next time . . . Colossians 1:3
