Bonne Annee 2012

1 Jan

In France, New Year’s Eve is called la Saint-Sylvestre and is usually celebrated with a feast, called le Réveillon de la Saint-Sylvestre which typically includes items like champagne, foie gras and in our case one of our favorite dishes moules frites (mussels and fries).

It also includes a television show called Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde that would leave Dick Clark speechless! You can view the trailer here.

Just one of the amusing acts from Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde. These guys took off and put back on their clothes while juggling...Oulala!

Our feast!

To all our family and friends near and far, may you have a wonderful 2012!

Baptiste, thank you for a wonderful year! This one is for you honey:

“From New Year’s on the outlook brightens; good humor lost in a mood of failure returns. I resolve to stop complaining.” –Leonard Bernstein
