The top {ten} of {twenty-sixteen}


2017
I’m not too sure what happened to
2016
but I do know
2016
held a lot of {blessings} & changes
I might only blog 10 4 times a year.
But I will not miss my yearly blog about
the previous year.
this year in my mind has been the biggest one yet.
So many changes.
Adventures.
New Beginnings.
Challenges.
Most of all...
Blessings.

In no particular order but here are 10 things that topped
The {now} MoTown Mertens Year.
{however there were many more}
1.     “Truck” Trenton TD Mertens  -- joined our family 04.27.16
&
being baptized into God’s Family 05.15.16
{okay this one does top the list}
 Moving from SoCal {California} to MoTown Colorado
in June we packed up and headed east…
3 adults, 2 kids {one 6 week old & 2 year old}, & 1 dog
all in a Rav4
&
 new jobs
 this truly has been a blessing & has taught us more than we know about
Faith.

Family.

Life.
4.     1st Football season as Indians
 nothing better than ‘Friday Night Lights’
5.     Broncos winning the Superbowl
{as funny as it sounds... it is a BIG deal}
Emmery was born the year the Broncos got DESTOYED

 I'm so excited to see what is in store for
2017
these two aren't lookin' back...
they're looking for their
p.i.g.
God has given us more than we deserve
&
more than we could have ever imagined.
Thanks.be.to.God.
