Merry christmas

We celebrated Christmas a little bit earlier over here because of our travel schedule and to allow the girls to play with their presents together. But here we go: Christmas morning started with the opening of all the presents. And boy, let me tell you, there were a lot (wondering how to get everything in the suitcase). After the girls watched 'lady and the tramp' and played with their new toys, while the grown ups prepared the Christmas lunch. Let's say we had a copious lunch with foie gras, langoustines, chapon, brie aux truffes and a homemade bûche de Noël. We all had a good time eating and enjoying some precious family time.


Christmas date at the Marché de Noël

Yesterday afternoon we went to the Christmas market here in Toulouse to get a little Christmas magic and O's first ride on an old merry-go-round. She is not very sure if she likes it :)  We had a sandwich à la saucisse de Toulouse avec des oignons confis, nutella pancakes and churros.

Le spectacle de Noël

Today Olivia went to her very first theatre. It was a children's Christmas theatre on a boat on the Canal du Midi. A Christmas themed children's play with an adult second level: What ever happened to the magic of Christmas? All you need is a tree, Christmas songs, lights and the Christmas tree dance. And in fact. It is that simple. Something I have learned today.
We went with her niece Lilou (3 years old) and I thought that O maybe was a little young to go to the theatre, but I think she had a great time & she was really into it, although we did not know the songs or the Christmas tree dance, but by the end, she could not stop clapping her hands to the rhythm of the music. Good idea of Tatie Sandrine.
