Merry Christmas

I know it has been forever! I did not realize how long it had been since I posted, SORRY :(
It has been very busy and crazy around the Isenberger house. From birthday parties to getting the house ready for Family! It has been a great few weeks. The best would have to be listening to my oldest take over the tradition of reading the Christmas Story on Christmas Eve, OK so for time sake she only read a few lines, but it still was one of the most precious moments yet.

As we prepare and plan for the season, we try hard to remember the true reason we celebrate Christmas. That God would send his only son to the earth for us, to save us all from our sins.

The other important part in our planning is to hold on to our traditions. It is important for our family that even if a member is not able to be with us (this year Kevin) we hold on to those traditions we started as a family. So thing like having Cassie and I read the Christmas story since Kevin is not with us, baking the cake or cupcake to celebrate Christ birth. Holding on to tradition help make it feel like that person is with us even when they are not.

Here are a few pictures from our house. I hope you all enjoy!
