the last person?

to post Christmas pictures... I am pretty sure. But better late than never, right? Hey at least my house is undecorated. That has got to count for something.

So enjoy the pictures... all 47 of them.

this year's (uncreative) card...

Hello Santa!


so snowy and SO cold... and yet the kids (and dog) LOVE it!

Hailey's preschool program... she was so cute...


the making and the frosting of the cookies... yum, yum!


Christmas Eve...


still Christmas eve... from Donnie and Tori...

"Where's the baby?" (their fav. Shrek the 3rd line) ... THANKS Donnie and Tori!

from cousins Abby and Avery...

Hungry, Hungry what? Thanks Abby and Avery... they love it!

new jammies, of course...


putting Santa's magic key on the front porch...

a plate of cookies for Santa...


the famous stocking pictures!...


all ready to go...


Christmas is here... finally! Checking to see if Santa ate his cookies...

so excited, so excited, so excited... do you think they are EXCITED???

let the FUN begin!!!...












Scooba dolphin (as we call her) in her too small sweater that drives her absolutely nuts...

and this is how we spent most of Christmas day: on the phone!!!

post-Christmas day sledding -- so fun!!!

had to include these because of their cute church outfits. sadly, Hai wasn't thrilled with the timing of this photo shoot...


New Year's Eve... partying with the Schneider's (party animal #1)

the pregnant gals and Sydney...

Andrew. New Year's Eve hottie.

Andrew. Guitar Hero hottie.

and party animal #2...


our holiday season was so fun and we loved spending it together as a little family. (don't get me wrong: we really really really really missed our too far away families and friends... but even without traveling home, it was still a fun, memorable Christmas.)

my two favorite moments from this year are:
***Hailey's singing (especially Away in a Manger -- "the yittle yord Jesus..." she has a hard time with L's. I YUV YOU HAY-EE!)
***Tyler explaining to Scooba on Christmas Eve morn. "that Christmas is REALLY about baby Jesus..."(he didn't know mommy and daddy could hear him)

and if you made it this far: congratulations. I know it was a long one ;)

Finally a post! Way cute pictures and Kylee especially loved the Baby Alive since she got one too! By the way, thanks for the 17 lbs of gumballs, the kids love them!!

Spencer loves the tractor shirt on the boy next to Hailey in her preschool program.

JLJ said...

Yay! Fun Christmas pictures - its never too late to post Christmas pictures, except maybe after July 4th. Have fun with that Baby Alive. Warning: its a lot of work, unless you want your carpets stained with the powdered pea food.... learned that the hard way. Oh, one more BA tip, wait a while to change the diaper, she doesn't have a quick digestive system.

where are the pictures of the traditional new year's midnight jog around the block? without those, this blog is boring.

Adrienne said...

oh aaron, don't be so negative. i don't recall YOU making a jog around the block.

amy, very cute. i love their pj's. also, i love scooba.

Megan said...

So cute Amy!!! But I have to ask... what is it with the Andersen family and those stocking pictures? If it's a Felt family trait I'm SO happy my mom didn't inherit it. :)

Chelsea said...

Looks like the little Creer Fam in South Dakota had a great Christmas. I love all the pictures and the funny stories of Haylee and Ty.

My compliments on having the patience to upload all of the pics! Three cheers for Amy!!

Just to set the record straight, I believe I was the last to post Christmas pictures by a number of days. Really I just waited until after you did it to make you feel efficient. :)
