Continuing My Story:

In December 1974, we had been in our new house for 6 months and Sonya, baby number 2, was born. Carol was two and a half and old enough to really enjoy Christmas. Naturally it gave us much joy to watch her.
Bill made Carol a dolls house, she was happy with that.

 Introduction to music making. She enjoyed trains (no gender bias)

 She was wearing a pretty dress which her grandma had made by hand. She also had a lovely Swiss dress sent by her Grossmuti.

 She enjoyed the little pool she got for Christmas.

Then we had a little concert.


  1. I can't help but smile because Carol was smiling so much. If Grossmuti's dress is on the right, it looks very special.

  2. She looks like a darling girl, always smiling broadly. I'm sure she loved her doll house.

  3. What a sweet memories to watch at. She was a happy smiling girl, that doll house looks almost the same we had!

  4. I know that we don't generally try and take miserable photos but Carol's smile looks so natural and I would have thought from that that she had a very sunny personality.

  5. She seems such a happy child and I hope she is a happy adult as well. Looking at her just makes me smile as well. Hope all is well, t'other Diane

  6. she was such a doll baby and i love that yellow dress. every photos shows here with that big beautiful smile, a happy child

  10. Just gorgeous and wonderful memories.
    The doll house looks good.

  12. Carol is such a sweetie, what a lovely Christmas for you all!

  13. What wonderful memories, Diane! Carol,is so pretty then and now!

  14. I was never a girlie girl, and didn't care very much about fashions or jewellery. But I had only brothers and sons, and lived next door to my three male first cousins. Not a girl in sight anywhere :(

    Your daughter was so cute, so musical, so alert *sigh*. You are very fortunate
