Late on a foggy afternoon we drove out to the woods. Had dinner at the Skyway and spent the night at a little cabin. The next morning we went up to Timberline Lodge for breakfast and spent the day playing in the snow. Her first time. I will never, ever forget it. Man, what a great day. My dream come true.

(Other trips to Timberline are here and here. [Josh and Keels have little kids now, too, but next year I think we should all go up together again and stay at the lodge — there's just nothing like sleeping up there.] Mimi's sweater and hat are on my Ravelry page, and her mittens [when she would agree to wear them!] are on Gillian's.)

Thank you for the lovely pictures of Timberline. I remember staying there, the beauty of the landscape and the lodge, the cozy little room where I slept and the St. Bernard!

Oh, that darling child! I love your close-up portrait of her in ... is it the 25th photo down? I may have miscounted somewhere in the teens... Anyways. That quiet smile. A glint of worldliness in the eyes - my word, one does get a glimpse of the girl she will grow into! =)

Also, I'm a quarter Norwegian and if you put me out into the cold, or give me half a glass of wine, my nose turns into a red button just like that! It's never been my favorite trait, but your photos make me think, "okay, maybe it's cute after all!" Ha!

Adorable baby snowman. Adorable and beautiful and magical everything here. xo Jen

Fun! When I saw this, I immediately thought of the book Summer Snowman, by Gene Zion. I know you like vintage things- this book was written in 1955 and is ADORABLE!! You could take the little snowman you made with Mimi and stick in the freezer. Then when summer comes, bring it out! So cute and funny.

What a great lot of photo's. Amelia is having so many experiences...it is wonderful to see. I think you may a a little outdoors girl..

I am so mesmerized by your photos! What a gorgeous country we live in! What a blessing is your little one!?! I ache for when my daughters were little. I think you should write a book on parenting and love and the family.

Preciosas las fotos y la pequeña.

What a magical place! My goodness. Thank you for sharing.

Oh Mt. Hood, I love you so! I've spent so much time up at Hood and surrounding area, but have lived in CO for awhile now. I appreciate your fiber and textile adventures but I love the fix of the PNW just as much! Thanks!

That photo of her in the sled looking at you!!! She belongs in a magazine- such a timeless, beautiful girl. All that snow and fog looks dreamy to my warm Florida eyes today. Thank you :) xo

That grin with her first snowman!! What a wonderful moment and it makes me grin too to see her in the slide, she wasn't giving him up was she!? Oh for so many more days of wonder for you all!

Oh my gosh, my heart was already melting, but those snowman pictures!! Oh!!! I am teary.

Her snowman, that sled, those red cheeks!
Such a treat to see her face light up when she sees her snowman!
Beautiful⛄⛄⛄⛄⛄☁☁☁☁☁☁
