Thanksgiving 2010 in the Southern Caribbean

 We took a 9 night cruise from Miami to the Southern Caribbean this Thanksgiving...it was wonderful! We travelled with Air Tran from Baltimore to Miami then with NCL cruise line. Our ship was the Norwegian Dawn.

Our ports of call were Samana, Tortola, Antigua, Barbados and St Kitts

 What a view in Antigua

Max, my new friend!

 Me and my wonderful hubby one evening before one of the fantastic shows on board the ship
On Thanksgiving, we were in St Kitts. This was our lobster lunch...then it was turkey and all the fixings on the cruise ship that night....delicious!

It was a chilly arrival back home to 30 degree weather...and we are expecting to get some snow this weekend! I miss the 80 degree weather and sun already....next trip is to England to see my parents in February, we can't wait!

Lucy's baptism

We had the honor of being asked to be Godparents to our best friend's baby girl, Lucy in July....Lucy was born August 13, 2010 and this weekend we travelled to SC for her baptism.

 Lucy and I before the baptism...all dressed up and ready to go!
 Lucy in the car with her pearls on--the perfect baptism gift! I had to start her out right.
What a special day...we can't thank Nick and Cory enough for asking us to be part of Lucy's special day and her life....we love you guys so much!!
