Joyeux Noël - la crèche




2012 Jan 16 2nd_0785


Église Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois


Of all the nativity scenes I have seen in Paris over the years, 
this is one that I come back to time and again...

for the trees, 
the lights, 
the cherubs in the distance, 
the tapestry rug, 
and the players in this familiar scene.


Joyeux Noël

Merry Christmas - Joyeux Noël to each of you and your families. Ours was full and will be fuller tomorrow with the arrival of Holly and her family along with Paris friend Isabelle and au pair Ramona.

We braved tornadoes this afternoon but all are safe on this Christmas day. Blessings to all.

Bises,
Genie

This photo is beautiful! I've yet to visit this church -- this photo puts it on my must see list for my next visit to Paris....whenever that might be...

Glad to hear that you are safe. Hope Holly and family and other guests were able to arrive on schedule.
