How cute! They are so sweet your children! I have a 2-year old son who have experienced 2 really snowy winters even here in the southern part of Sweden, but this year NO snow yet!!
Instead I could spot some signs of spring the other day! One called "snowdrop" in Swedish. Beautiful white ones!
The surroundings of your house are absolutely stunning!
Have a lovely day!
Kindest regards,
Anna, Sweden

The scenery at your place is just so picturesque...postcard worthy. You should be making notecards etc. with these gorgeous shots. And the babies in their snow suits! I just love snowsuits! I have a sled just like yours that I bought for my twins over 35 years ago.

ChRiS said...

Beautiful!!!!!! hard to believe the twins are that big already!!

Haven't commmented on your blog before but have enjoyed it for a while. Was moved to comment on your beautiful children - what an amazing picture, i can't stop smiling when i see it! That little smiley face speaks volumes - how great that you captured that moment. As a mother of a boy of 12, enjoy every minute - it goes so fast but you love them more each day.xxx

Wow! Look at your little snow bunnies! We are waiting patiently for the snow from your area to hit us here in Montana later today. Here's hoping! Margaret looks like she is having a blast, or just very thrilled that she sees her Mommy taking her photo. :) Kit

I'm so jealous. I've been waiting for our snow at least so I can take some photos outside but nothing. We just got ice last night. Graham and Margaret look so big in the sled. Too precious!

What gorgeous snow! Enjoy!!

Between You and Me said...

They have grown so much!!!

They look adorable all bundled up to play in the snow!

Susan said...

Your babies are so adorable - I bet they loved being out in the snow. I used to love taking my son out sledding when he was a toddler.

I can't say I envy you and your snow - I had enough of it living for 18 years in Chicago - I'm still enjoying the milder Texas winters :)

allumer * decor said...

Makes me miss my boys being little again... so bitter sweet. (time flies) We had the same sled too...a cute sled for cute kids!

This could be your greeting card for next Christmas. Love the shot of colour from your husband and kids in a mostly black and white exterior. You have such a great eye.

Barb said...

Priceless...cherish every moment. B.L.I.N.K. And they will be 21.

Sivs hus said...

Hello, Wonderful - snow and playing outdoors. love Siv

Mom said...

Love the snow babies all bundled up and smiling in their new sled - so adorable! Our snow has been very elusive this year - just bits of it that don't stick...the weather is more warm than cold so the buds on our big pear tree and the Japanese quince are opening months ahead of time.

Amanda/Bullfrogs and Bulldogs said...

Beautiful! Where exactly in Oregon do you guys live? We live in Newberg and it's raining now :(

Gorgeous photos and memories to treasure! And I know from experience that pulling the children is a very good work out for Mum or Dad - enjoy your snow!

Susan Kane said...

Brrr...in a few years, those little ones will be bounding over the snow with their sleds.

Kristel said...

Hi Trina, your babies are so adorable, just look at that smile on Margaret's little face....priceless! I'm so glad that your husband got to use the sled.

Dianne said...

Be still my heart! Adorable!

The Farmer's Wife said...

So, so precious! How fun to have enough snow to sled and the most adorable baby snowsuits! Love those chubby pink cheeks!

too Blessed to Stress said...

Ok too many thins to say so here we go:
1. Love your darling kiddos! They look so happy here :)
2. Saw the cover of Country Living and said to myself "I know that living room!" Loved the feature they did, your home looked lovely.
3. I may or may not swoon every time I see your farmhouse...
4. I may or may not always make hubby look at the pictures and say, "See this is like we want."
5. He laughs at my excitement and but I know inside he's swooning {or what ever it is guys do} over the farmhouse too

The End. :)

i'm so glad that they got to use their christmas sled! looks glorious!

debbie bailey said...

I love the contrast of their colorful clothing against all that wonderful white! I'm at the beach, and while I like it, January just doesn't seem real without snow.

Wendy Freeland - North Carolina said...

The kids are so cute! They look so happy in their sled.

I love all the beautiful pictures you take. What kind of camera do you use? The picture of the babies on the sled against the backdrop of the snow is amazing.........beautiful

A Country Farmhouse said...

Canon Rebel xsi...and Photoshop helps too! I just have the basic cheap version ($100) but use a few things to help with light, etc.
