Christmas 2010! / Noel 2010 !

2010 December 30

This is so unusual for Ireland to get as much snow as we did. These weather conditions ruined a lot of people holidays’ plans but we made it! We arrived 8 hours late (and spent 4 of these hours sitting in a plane) but nobody in the plane complained (so unusual as well for a French crowd!); we were SO lucky already to be able to fly, many flights had been canceled!

This year was a special Christmas edition: I am sure that my parents were thrilled to have the complete family over. We had a great time – lots of food, lots of presents, lots of funny quotes from Victor, lots of memories. Thank you Santa and all his helpers!

If Juliette was oblivious to all the pre-Christmas excitement, after this family reunion, she now knows what Christmas is about… I’m talking gifts, not the birth of Jesus! Last year, she was completely indifferent to the presents and played only with the ribbons but this year, she mastered the art of unwrapping for sure!

C’est tellement rare pour l’Irlande d’avoir de la neige comme nous avons eu. Cette meteo a change les plans de beaucoup de gens mais nous sommes passes a travers les mailles du filet. Nous sommes arrives avec 8h de retard (dont 4 h a attendre assis dans un avion) mais personne dans l’avion n’a conteste (telllement rare aussi pour des Francais !) car nous etions deja parmi les chanceux qui ont pu partir, beaucoup de vols ont ete annules.

Ce Noel a ete une edition speciale : je suis sure que mes parents sont ravis d’avoir eu toute la famille a la maison. Nous avons passe de bons moments – beaucoup a manger, beaucoup de cadeaux, beaucoup de commentaires rigolos de Victor, beaucoup de souvenirs ! Merci le Pere Noel et ses aides !

Si Juliette etait indifferente a l’excitation d’avant-Noel, apres cette fete de famille, elle sait maintenant ce que Noel implique… les cadeaux bien sur, pas de la naissance de Jesus ! L’an dernier, seuls les rubans l’interessaient mais cette annee, elle a perfectionne la maniere de deballer les cadeaux !
