  1. 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

  10. 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.

  14. 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

  19. 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

  27. 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 :)

  41. Hello, Wonderful - snow and playing outdoors. love Siv

  42. 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.

  52. 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. :)

  62. 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.

  64. 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

  65. 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.
