Take one Canadian girl in les Alpes.
Add the ups & downs of living in France.
Cover with melted cheese...
Et voilà !

Scenes from Sunday

Yesterday friends from Lyon came to visit.
It was lovely to spend Sunday together.

No sooner had everybody arrived than FQ & Emie got to work making crêpe batter.

Look at that concentration!
Meanwhile, Emie's little sister Théa kept herself busy...
... until it was time to eat.
Then us grown-ups (& two-year-olds) sat down to lunch.
Behold le crêpe party, the best gadget ever.

Making your own individual-sized crepes?  
So. Much.  Fun.
(Even if things get a little messy when eggs are involved.)
After eating a zillion crêpes & polishing off a couple of bottles of cider, 
we needed some fresh air.

We bundled up & headed down to the lake.
We wandered into the old town 
& took the obligatory tourist photo in front of the old prison
Annecy's most famous landmark.
There were lots of people out for a Sunday stroll in the vieille ville.

After a quick stop at a cheese shop to pick up an (edible) souvenir...
... a pause to say hello to the local waterfowl...
... & a glimpse of the beginning of a beautiful winter-afternoon sunset...

...we headed home to warm up with hot chocolate.

  1. That looks like pretty much the best Sunday ever! J'adore le crepe party, as you well know... And I'm pretty sure I would loooove Old Town Annecy.

    So glad your advent calendar came today! Let the countdown begin!
