The Winter Kids - "Winter" Wonderland

I guess I should have known. 
I mean, their last name was "Winter" for crying out loud.
So I shouldn't have been surprised that they brought it with them. : )
But I was.

It read 49 degrees, but with the wind chill, it was a cool 34. 
We didn't know it at the time, so we pressed on with the chattering teeth, ice cube hands and watering eyes. 
In between shots they were wrapped in blankets, but there was no getting around it. 
It was freakin' cold.

As cold as it was, they hardly complained though. 
They hugged and kissed spontenously, and were compassionate towards each other. 
Something that you rarely see these days.

The first time I talked to Kristin was last May to book the appointment. 
After only five minutes of chatting, I felt like I knew her my whole life. 
She has the amazing ability (gift) of making people feel comfortable. 

What I was happy to see was that I'm not the only one who thought that. 
During our session, we were stopped by clients of her's, who greeted her warmly 
(as if she were family) - and raved that she is the best in her field. 
Like I said...she makes an impression on you from 'hello'. 

And you know what they say, 'the apple doesn't fall to far from the tree'.
These little dumplings were as sweet as, umm 'apple' pie!
I think they have their Mom to thank for that!

The most adorable Christmas outfit ever... 

Super, super, kids...

If she wasn't giggling the entire time, she was sticking her tongue out trying to be funny.
So happy, for sooo cold...

Big brother.
He was the most protective, and sweetest young man I have ever met.

Just a little over a year and so independent already...

Naughty or nice?!
Or just a regular little comedian?

I like this picture because it just captures for me their sweet, sweet dispositions...

First and foremost, a quick shout out to the Ceislak family for referring the Winter family to me.
 I'm in awe every time I hear that I was referred by 'word of mouth'. 
I'm so grateful to each and every one of you that have done this for me. 
Thank you so very much.

Thank you Winter family for being so incredibly wonderful and kind.

I have to tell you - when I got in my car after all was said and done,
 I finally realized just how cold it really was. 

You know that bone chilling, can't get warm while the heat is set on high blasting in your face feeling? 
Yeah, that cold... 
 and yet when I thought about the unique bond between you all - 
I came away suddenly with nothing but 'warm' memories. 

Leave a comment and help them reach 20 to receive a gift!
