Christmas In Luxembourg

Merry Christmas! Joyeux Noel!! We are slowly learning the french phrases for things! Christmas was very different for us this year being so far away from home and not being able to celebrate with our families. However, we tried to our best to make it a good one for the girls. I think they were pleased with all that santa brought for them. Here are some pictures from Christmas. Notice our "Charlie Brown" christmas tree....it was all of 5 feet tall- maybe. The picture of the cake was our christmas dessert....a holiday yule log. (La Buche de Noel). This is a french tradition and the cake is shaped like a log and is filled with chocolate mouse. Another very good dessert for a special occasion. Learning all of the different traditions over here has been a wonderful experience for all of us!!
