Bref, nous avons conduit jusqu'au Parc de la Gatineau et une fois que nous ne pouvions plus avancer en voiture- on a marché.

On Christmas Day, we had dinner at the Charland home. He is the Bishop of our ward and his family has been great to us. Check out the beautiful cake we enjoyed there:
While in Montreal, we had dinner with the Couture family, Sergio and Emilie (who got engaged!) at the mission home. President and Sister Petion, the mission president in Montreal, are friends of the Sacutos from France.
New Year's Eve dinner was a beautiful meal by our friend Annie, enjoyed with the newly engaged couple, Emilie and Sergio.

Perhaps a little bit of a strange tradition, but a tradition nonetheless. We celebrate the late arrival of the wisemen in Bethlehem buy eating a traditional cake which contains a "fève"( small decoration the size of a dry kidney bean). The lucky person who finds the "fêve" is proclaimed king. Just to make things extra fair and make sure there is not cheating, the youngest member of the party sits under the table and assigns the pieces of cake to the guests. Our friend Alexandre was our king and very diplomatically chose his mom to be his queen :)
Nous avons reçu des amis pour "tirer les rois". Alexandre a été notre roi et a choisi sa maman pour reine .
