Noël à Paris: le retour


We’re super excited to have been able to celebrate another Christmas season in Paris (even though we miss our families terribly)! This year was even better than last year because we had our little Henry Pooper with us.

On Christmas Eve we watched Christmas movies for a while and then went out to the Christmas market at La Defense. It’s definitely one of the biggest/nicest in Paris, but since we’d already done all of our Christmas shopping we just got some hot wine and snacks. Yum!

We went to midnight mass at Saint Ambroise and then got up early (well…9am) Christmas morning to open our present to each other and eat pancakes.

James gave me this gorgeous robe from Princesse Tam Tam. I plan on wearing it the rest of winter.

I gave James a bunch of smaller gifts: a vintage TinTin comic book, this funny fish soap dish, and a Paris Saint Germain t-shirt.

We found Henry a fun Santa squeeky ball, but it’s too big for his little mouth. Le pauvre!

For our bûche de Noël this year, James picked up a couple fancy ones from a bakery near his work. My favorite was the chocolate, yum!


We went back to Pho 14 for our traditional Christmas dinner and it didn’t disappoint! There was a little bit of a line this time, but we probably didn’t have to wait more than 15 minutes.

We hope everyone had a joyeux Noël!
