Last night, everyone came over to my cousin Nathalie's apartment to celebrate Christmas. We exchanged presents, sang traditional French carols, and had a delicious meal with smoked salmon, salads, champagne, wine, and a fantastic assortment of deserts (chocolate truffles, christmas logs, cakes, pastries, fruits de la passion!!!). The tree was decorated with real burning candles.
My cousin Ninon arriving with one of her delicious buche de Noël. It tasted even better than the batter off the spoon after I melted down the chocolate and mixed in the butter over at Ninon and Georges' house on Friday.
Juliette et Ninon, sisters extraordinaire.
Valentine enjoying a slice of toast.
Paul making polite conversation with his little cousin Nemo.
After the party, I took the metro and met up with some friends celebrating at the Elysée Montmarte.
