Fauquet’sfamily wishes you a happy New Year 2016 and for a good start why not to recall the great moment of Christmas?


We were 24 around the three tables . We have a part view of the first table because the photographer was there . At the third table in the backgound the youngest among us .- part view too )


So here is an end of the first table : two sons , Pierre and jean-Bapiste ,and their wifes Agnès and Melody ( on the right )


This is the other end of that first table ; Janine  with at her left our oldest son Thierry and at her righ the oldest daughter Carle aka The duchess .  Photos are a so good invention to put in memory the great times of life . Two daughters are sitting at the second table:  Véronique et Isabelle .


And one of the best momemt is when Janine flambes the Christmas pudding) No Christmas meal without the quite English fashionable Christmas pudding ( plum pudding )

NEEDING SOME REST I TAKE A BREAK FROM TODAY WEDNESDAY JANUARY 6 DURING A WEEK OR TWO;___________________________________________________

    324 people!!! Are you seeing if we’re paying attention? A very happy and healthy new year to you and your family. ❤

    I am determined that one of these years I am going to get to sample plum pudding. 🙂
    Always lovely to see your family gatherings.
    A very Merry Christmas to you, and best wishes for the new year.
    Love and hugs,

    • We eat plum pudding at Christmas for about 40 years and also a special custard pie coming from the ancestors . Those traditional desserts give some colours to Chistmas and their flavor caresss the buds of the taste !! 🙂 .Deliciously

      • CLynn says:

        Oooh, yes, I’ve learned how to make custard pie… one of my favorites…
        but I’ve not learned how to make plum pudding… sounds tricky to me. I’ve looked for many years to try and buy one. One year I ended up buying a rum cake instead. That was good too! 🙂

  6. What a beautiful, happy family! I’m glad you all had such a lovely Christmas, Michel! 🙂
    Did you sing for Janine, or your family?
    I love hearing the Christmas songs sung at family gatherings this time of year! 🙂
    Almost 2016 HUGS!!! 🙂

  7. Heartafire says:

    Spectacular photos, thank you for allowing us in on the fun! You have a lovely family, Happy New Year to you all! Health and happiness…

    Such laughter I imagine came from these tables. Probably some songs too. Happy New Year Michel to all of you.

    Pour qu’elle reflète sur toi

    Je te souhaite une superbe journée

    Et que la joie embellisse tes journées

    Une bise pour toi

    Wishing you and your family a very Blessed New Year. From the photos, I believe you have had a Merry Christmas..( I saw the 324 but thought it was a typing error, which we have all had ) You have a lovely family Michel.

    Happy New Year, Michel! It’s nice to see your family!

  13. judyrutrider says:

    Is Janine a vampire or something? She never ages! She is still as beautiful as when you two were newly weds. Thanks for including us in your family gathering. I almost feel like family sometimes. The Duchess is my sister.

  14. mrswrangler says:

    I am glad it was “only” 24, and not 324! You would have needed a mansion. It is wonderful that you and Janine are still physically able to do this. It would be too much for us anymore. And now that the grandchildren are all adults now–except one 7 year-old—they would not all fit inside here anymore. In the summer, when we can entertain outside, it would be fine. But so many are spread out on both sides of the U.S.A. and we are in the middle—-almost 2000 miles away! Your family will have so many memories of their times together at “home”. Bless you all! ❤ Nancy and Ken

  22. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 🙂

  23. Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. blb1 says:

    I got an email this morning that linked me to judyrutrider. Assuming that was your intention.

  25. neilc693 says:

    Bonne année! Your family gatherings are always nice to see, especially with the joyful color on the walls of that room.
    Is that a Fauquet coat of arms on the wall?

  26. marica0701 says:

    Beautiful family photos! 🙂 It looks like was a fun and vibrant celebration!

    I also love the blue on your walls. 🙂

    A joyous Happy New Year to you!

  27. puffpop says:

    What could possibly be better than sharing a wonderful feast with your beautiful family. A perfect way to end 2015 and now to begin another New Year. I also enjoyed seeing the beautiful china as well.. I think a meal presented so well on lovely dishes tastes even better…
    Did Janine prepare this meal?
    HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and to your lovely family…
    votre amie,

  28. What a beautiful family! The best to all in 2016!

  29. Cheri Herald says:

    24 at the table, amazing! May you and yours have a wonderful New Year!

    C’est une envie de te faire plaisir et t’offrir du bonheur
    Je t’envoie une grosse envolée de bisous d’amitié
    Bonne et agréable soirée Bernard

    Hope you are well rested Michel

  42. jstnotherday says:

    Michel, I hope all is well.
    You and Frank both pulled disappearing acts right after the holidays.
    Frank is back but I still miss you, and am really hoping that all is well.

  43. cjjustice1 says:

    Happy New Year, Michel. You are such a wonderful friend, and I thank you for the many encouragements during this past year. You are a blessing to me.
    I love the pictures of your family – you have such special times together sharing in your meals, conversations, and activities. I finally posted on my blog! I decided to update my friends with our annual Christmas/New Year’s letter that my Michael and I co-wrote this year.
    I hope that you are enjoying a very special time with family and friends, and not ailing in some way. I am praying for you now.
    Love ❤

  44. L. Gail says:

    I have to catch up with my friend Michel Fauquet ! I have been reading and feel like celebrating Christmas all over. My Christmas wasn’t nearly as joyous. I’ve been sitting with my Mother in the hospital for 6 weeks then another 2 weeks at her home. I’ve been at my own home for 9 days. I caught a cold and now the weather has me here at home (13 inches of snow). I must say I’m enjoying being home but I’ll be going back to my parents home to help my Father as soon as the road clears.
    I’m enjoying your family, stories and drawings! Thank you for cheering me up!

  45. I saw the movie The Walk, about Philippe Petit recently and thought of you! What an amazing man he is!
    Just checking in! Hope all is well! Still miss you! 🙂
    ❤ and (((HUGS))) for you and Janine!!! 🙂

  46. I hope that the Fauquet family has a very happy 2016!
