Beautiful imagery--a wonderful little girl--sweet story. I'm going to squint at the tree lights this year and share your Monet vision!
What a cute story! Your title drew me in and did not disappoint!

A very satisfying mystery - from the peculiar title to the delightful conversations under the tree to the joy of trendy glasses. Well told

How funny! I began to suspect her eyes but certainly didn't think that's where you were going. Funny, funny... Oh, love the title, too!

As usual, your ideas and exection blows me away... I was there with her and thinking how fun it is to see ALL things familiar from different viewpoints and angles, so this had a deeper meaning for me.. THANKS Dee... you're a joy!

hee, hee... I used to pull the corners of my eyes to get that effect too! Thanks for the memory.
What a sweet story. It brings back memories of the innocence of being young at Christmas!

Very creative. Though the paintings are intended to be blurred, your writing is crystal clear. Well done.
A Christmas miracle right under the tree! Monet is one of my favorite artist, but putting on glasses or squinting doesn't improve his work : ) I love the way you captured the innocence of the children.

Congrats on your win! I don't remember a Christmas without "Monet" lights....I've been wearing glasses since age five! I always liked taking them off to see how much prettier the lights are. :)

Great title, definitely drew me in. And the story didn't disappoint either. Fantastic descriptions of colour and mood - liked the little brother especially! Very nice story, well deserved win.
