Corner View - Holiday



It's Wednesday and Corner View is back! Started by a terrific blogger, Jane at Spain Daily, Corner View is made up of many bloggers all over the world who post on a particular theme each Wednesday. It's a lot of fun for me to be part of this amazing group of photographers, writers and artists, and I look forward to reading their blogs as well! For more Corner Views, click on Jane's site.

I admit to groaning at the thought of posting Holiday photos -- I just took it all down and am actually loving the peace and quiet post-holiday, but here goes:



A rare dress-up for Christmas Eve mass






No, my children are NOT spoiled Christmas morning -- why do you ask?














Oliver helps Sophie with her gifts.





The Blue Mermaid













Snow (soap flakes) in Los Angeles





Peace from my Corner to Yours in 2010!

  10. All- The blue mermaid is a vase that I got for Sophie's room but it came broken into a gazillion pieces. We glued it back together, though, and just won't be able to fill it with any water!

  13. I love the photo of the Christmas tree, and I also agree that your daughter looks like Helen Keller. If not, they could be sister.

  16. I live in Chicago (used to live in La Jolla) where it snows real snow! My children were infants and toddlers in La Jolla and we would take them to Sea World at Christmas time to play in the manmade snow.
    The upside to having lived in California than? No stuffing squirming little bodies into snow suits and mittens. The downside? Not enough snow!

    I've just come to your website through another. Your Sophie does look like Helen Keller. What an inspiring story of Helen and her teacher. I'm not aware of Sophie's situation but it seems that she has her Annie Sullivan in you. I wish the best for you and your beautiful child.

  22. I enjoyed the photos - thank you for sharing your corner view.
    What a beautiful family. Your kids are radiant - the "snow" shot is joy embodied. The decorations in your home are festive (the fireplace is a work of art), and it looks orderly - how did you do that? (Your wood floor is beautiful, too, I must say.) Happy New Year!
