    My family (Dad. Mom, daughter5, and daughter 3) enjoys playing in the snow and making snowman and snow caves. But our number one winter activity is going to my in laws house in the Adirondacks (NY) and snowmobiling! This winter my favorite activity is going to be getting ready for our baby boy who is due March 15th! (P.S. we love our Tri mode)

    We have a 10 year old and a 2 month old, so we have to find things that keep them both happy during the winter. Usually the boys will go sledding while Ella and I make hot cocoa and candy cane brownies. We will drink our cocoa then go to the local zoo as they decorate the entire zoo in millions of lights for Christmas!

    I love taking my kids to the play area at the mall on days it’s too cold to go outside. The Valco Trimode Twin + toddler seat makes it easy to get around with all 3 of my young children!

    We have a 6 1/2 month old and we’re looking forward to our winter outings with him like sledding, playing in the snow, and bundled up walks!! I also love taking pictures so I’m so excited to see my son’s little rosy cheeks next to his big smile :)

    It’s my son’s first winter so I dunno! I hope to take him on my dad’s old sled though. My husband still takes him on walks now in the Ion (but we need a footmuff)!

    Our children our very young but we are both so in love with the holiday spirit and we want to share it with them so we have taken our favorite childhood moments and are sharing it with them. Last year we went on a getaway to Sunriver, OR which was one of my husbands favorite place to go to as a child and even had breakfast with Santa. A favorite memory of mine was going with my family every year up into the mountains and the snow to chop down our Christmas tree. This time of year is so very special to us both and we love passing on our favorite traditions to our children. Looking forward to baking Santa’s favorite on Christmas Eve along with a special birthday cake for baby Jesus. Our oldest is almost 3 and can’t wait to help decorate the cookies and cake! :)

    My hubby and daughters 4 and 8 enjoy skiing. We all enjoy ice skating. We also have fun sledding and building ice forts and snowmen. But most of all we enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate after playing outside in the cold.

    It is our first winter with our baby girl, but I am sure we will continue spending lots of time outside all season long! We love taking long walks and then returning home to snuggle in front of a blazing fire. We also look forward to some quality time at our local gardens to see the sculptures and unique sights covered in snow and decorated with holiday lights.

    Along with this being our daughter’s first very winter, my husband who serves in the Navy will be home this year for Christmas!! So that is a celebration in itself! Her Daddy and I enjoy the holiday season so much, Christmas was our “dating” anniversary and we got engaged in Frankenmuth, Michigan, one of the neatest Christmas-towns around. We have a lot of fun things planned this year: Our family is coming in from Michigan, we will decorate a tree together with ornaments from over the years, my Dad will make his famous cappuccinos, we will take a stroll in her new Valco Baby Ion (can’t wait to show it off!) to see the lights around our neighborhood. We’ll watch Christmas movies as a family and cut out paper snowflakes to hang in the windows! And of course.. Mommy will be taking lots of pictures :P

    During past winter seasons, my husband and I usually spend a lot of time snowmobiling. This year will be a little different since it is our first year with our son (9.5 months). We just recently bought a baby sled so we can go for walks, not only using our Valco stroller, but the sled as well. (we just got a new little puppy too, so the daily walks are a MUST).

    My favorite thing is to stroll in the winter- the crisp air, the smell of wood burning, cold noses and rosey cheeks, the sound of the snow crunching under the tires and my feet. I love to walk in the winter and my children love it too. We get them all bundled up and go strolling to see the lights!

    My family and I love to watch movies and drink hot chocolate during the winter. The thing outside that we don’ t miss though is the annual Christmas parade in my home town. I’ve seen it every year of my life, and now my little girl will see it as well!

    Our little girl will be 4 months old when she has her first introduction to snow this Christmas. She needs to stay warm this year since she is too little to actually play in the snow. We are really excited for next winter and sledding. As she grows, her daddy will teach her to ski and snowboard, and camp in the snow, but for now, mommy and baby will just be watching . . .

    We have a 3 year old son and he just loves to be outside all the time! He can’t wait for the snow to start falling. It actually started a little bit today. We like to spend time outside making snowmen, and sledding. Walking around at Crossroads Village in Flint, MI and looking at light displays. And of course going to see Santa Clause.

    This is our first winter with our little one. As of right now we don’t really have any winter traditions. When I was growing up we always put up the Christmas decorations as a family. That made the holiday even more special

    This will be our first winter with mobile twins! We have signed them up for a toddler gym class to help us get out of the house once a week. We also plan on visiting the library and trying to bundle up to take walks in our brand new Tri-Mode! Can’t wait to use it..just got it yesterday!!! If it’s too cold…we’ll probably head to the mall just to get out of the house!

    It is cold with much snow where we live, so me and my son (1.5 y) go outside to play in the snow. With the Valco tri-mode baby stroller it makes it easy to get through the snow on our walks on the way to the park or store or wherever we are going. We go cross-country skiing, ice skating, sledding, on long walks or jogs, build snowmans, play soccer in the snow. He’s learning now to handle a hockey stick and soon will be able to play ice hockey with his father. And when and if he gets tired, then I bundle him up and he sleeps cozily in the stroller!

    In the winter months we can’t go out because we don’t have the winterized package for our stroller….just joking. We enjoy playing in the snow, watching the dogs run around the backyard, and enjoying a nice cup of hot chocolate after walking the dogs. Its the simple pleasures in life that make us happy.

    We go for a few walks in the winter if it’s not too too cold. I specially love to take walks when it snows because everything just seems so peaceful and quiet, my kids also love trying to catch snowflakes in their mouths. Otherwise we keep warm inside enjoying some hot cocoa and watch movies or play some board games.

    This is our first year with our twins (7mos), so traditions haven’t really be set yet, and we live in TX, where it is still sadly 60 or more, but we plan to go to a tree farm, see Santa, wear matching pajamas, carriage ride to see the lights, and whatever else we can fit in to this busy but fun month!

    We bundle the kids up in the stroller and walk to the library (even in rain and snow!) and then swing by a coffee shop for hot drinks on the way home. We all love it, and it is such an inexpensive way to spend a winter evening!

    We love to go walking on the San Antonio River during the holiday season. They put lights in all of the trees. By themselves they are nice to look at, but add the reflection of the lights in the water and it truly is a beautiful sight. We have a family Christmas dinner on the river every year. It is so special because we all live in different places and it is nice to spend time with siblings and parents.

    Growing up, it was always holiday cooking with my family. Now that I am a mommy myself, we have a new tradition of driving – or going for a walk – to look at Christmas lights. My husband is really into it and we go almost every weekend… usually both Saturday & Sunday. We put the kids in Christmas jammies & let them watch lights until the fall asleep. It’s a great way to wind down from the day! Merry Christmas All!

    When I was little girl my favorite thing to do was ice skate on the Mississippi with my sister and Mom. We had a fantastic time acting like we were Olympic figure skaters. Which was farm from the truth, but it was fun to pretend. Then after our Mom would make us hot chocolate with marshmallows to warm up.
