Recap of Christmas Tour

***Photos are in the website Gallery***

To recap The Isaacs Christmas was a long, exhausting but great trip. The concerts were awesome! It was so much fun to see friends and fans all over the U.S. Thank you so much to all of you that joined us in concert whether it was an Isaacs concert or a Gaither event. So many of you brought gifts and treats to the bus and we enjoyed every bit of it.

We started out on December 3rd from TN. Our first concert was on the 4th in Toledo, Ohio for a Gaither Christmas show. We then moved on to the 5th in Indianapolis, Indiana for another Gaither event. On Saturday night the 6th we were in Roanoke, Virginia with the Gaithers and on Sunday the 7th in East Stone Gap, Virginia. The church there is always so good. They fed us a wonderful Christmas meal before the show. We had turkey and dressing and all the trimmings. That night we headed back to TN for a few hours. We did some laundry, grocery shopped for the bus, loaded back up and headed back out on Monday evening. On Tuesday the 9th we appeared at a Civic Center in Lebanon, Missouri. That night when we came out to board the bus everything was icy. Brrrrr it was sooooo cold. The next morning we woke up in Sioux City, Iowa to snow covered everything. We sang in a beautiful church there that was so beautifully decorated for Christmas. On Thursday the 11th we were in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for a Gaither event. Friday the 12th found us in Moline, Illinois and Saturday night the 13th we ended with a Gaither event in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Here we saw the most snow. We were in the Resch Center right beside the Green Bay Packers stadium.

Special thanks to Ed for some great food. The oreo balls rocked! The Lafollettes for the Witey's ice cream YUM!, Gina & Randy for the Neosporin lip ointment (Lisa thanks you anyway!! LOL Lily's experience with it wasn't so good!) Beth Endean you are one awesome new blog buddy! The church in Sioux City for the great gift baskets, yummy fruit, cereal bars, cough drops and more!! Lynda Randle for the awesome pancakes for breakfast on the last day out!! AND everyone else! I'm sure I'm forgetting someone. You all are awesome fans of The Isaacs and you are loved.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year!!
