I bought some small pines and put them in my front yard. My question is: Is it normal for some of the needles to turn yellow now that the weather has gotten cold?

It is normal for some of the needles to turn yellow and fall from pine trees at this time of year. As long as the yellowing needles are towards the inside of the tree and the newer growth is still green, there's nothing to worry about. If the newest growth is turning yellow, the cause can be overly wet soils or freeze damage. Watch your pines this spring. You should see healthy new growth at the tips of the branches. If so, everything is fine.
