The holidays are a very special time of the year. It is a time of family, joy, light and warm memories. Christmas is an extra special time of the year for both of our families.  The following pages are all
highlight those family traditions.

I will always remember very early on when Julie and I were first dating visiting Julie's sisters house. Mike Shepherd asked a very important question.   "Does your family celebrate on Christmas Day or
Christmas Eve?"  My response was "Christmas Eve"  Mike gave me as serious look as he could muster and said "Welcome to the family, the Kaisler's are on Christmas Day so your tradition will not conflict.

With the addition of Madeleine and Gabriel, Christmas is now even more special. There is nothing like watching a young children experience Christmas. It is a reminder to all of us just how special family is.

Each year I post the photos for each Christmas celebration. It is fun to go through them from time to time and be amazed by how the kids have grown. It is also fun to go back and look at those older photos and remember the days of childhood.

So we invite you to enjoy the photos and the memories.

To me Christmas is a reminder and celebration of our family and I will always feel fortunate with the family that I have been blessed with.
