Christmas Pictures

We had Katy V take Luke's Christmas pictures this year. Decided to take them over at Sharay's new house. There was warm weather this week in the 60's so going outside was an option! He is not a poser and very active so a lot of action was involved. From surfing and falling off his sled (he called it his boat), to dumping Grandma's popcorn all over the floor then eating some--Kate did so great and was patient and took a lot of shots so there was lots of good ones to enjoy! Thanks Katy for taking his pics. Enjoyed it a lot.

This is how I think of my Luke... his smile lights up my life. And his smile is in his eyes too, I love that. I remember before he was born I envisioned this smile that would bring joy to Wayne, I, and all the other people he would be with-- and here that smile is :)

Merry Christmas everyone!

More Atlantis Pics

We asked Luke "Do you want to go home?"... "No, I stay in Da Hamas"... Smart Guy !
One of the three or four kiddie pools... Luke who usually loves the water found more interest in getting rocks and sticks from around the palm trees and using them for his swords :) The last day was the day he got into the water and did the baby slide and didn't want to get out. Too bad we had to leave :(
They also had several beach areas- got him a little back pack of toys which he had a blast with.

I think everyone takes their picture in this chair :)
One of the manta rays... they have walls of these huge aquariums. We ate dinner close by one night and a guy had an Atlantis diver dive in the tank and hold up a poster that said will you marry me... then he proposed to his shocked and surprised wife who said yes! And a thousand people clapped. Talk about romantic!

This bahamas street band was awesome... so LOUD and fun. We followed them all through the streets- Wayne and I love it.
View of the Yachts... boy were there some big ones.
On the Beach
This is the arch that is kind of famous... I think it goes for over $10,000 a night or something crazy.

Trip to Atlantis

This is my first entry so we will see how this blogging works! We took a great trip right after Thanksgiving to the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Luke being the seasoned travelor he is made friends with everyone on the plane rides. It really was a manageable flight stopping just in Atlanta. The weather was perfect- 84 and sunny. We went to the pools everyday and walked through the fish marinas alot. Luke loved the sharks and the manta rays. There was one that was 19 feet long- even I was really amazed! There was a spot which was a tunnel and the walls and ceilings had large lobsters... he got to know when it was coming and would say "I dont want lobsters" and would want me to cover up his head :) Wayne and I had some great dinners- Cafe Martinique and The Poop Deck were among favorites. The beans and rice (I LOVE) was outstanding as well as the local plantains we had at a local joint on the main island. Regis and Kelly was taping while we were there and we sat next to Kelly one night we went to dinner. I also saw Kelly Pickler (american idol) on night walking around the shops.

Thanks Honey for working so hard so we can take awesome vacations! We made a lot of great memories with the Luke- I am so glad we went :)
