I really would love to do the St. Thomas/St. Maarten cruise. The only problem with that one is the kids with school. The summer prices are just outrageous, way more than I want to spend. The only other times are the holidays and those cruises cost alot as well. We will more than likely cruise the week before they start school in 2012. That will give us time to pay for the cruise. Such fun times! The next cruise we will keep as a surprise from the kids.

OK, FE final pics. Sneek peak at FE gift!

I do believe that I am done with my FE finally. Another thing that I can cross off of my list. Now to finish FE Gifts!
















Here is what one of my FE gifts will be, this photomat is for a couple in our FE group that is getting married on board. I made other photomats as well, I will show those right before we leave.

I started packing and Halloween trip

Hello everyone! I started packing for the cruise this week. I made a list of the clothing for each day of the trip, so that I don't overpack. I am notorious for doing that(I must say I packed an extra outfit for myself-OK maybe 2) I only have to add the essential items to our luggage before we leave. I made Kingsley boarding reservation as well. He has to have some dental surgery while we are gone. They are going to pull 5 of his puppy teeth that never came out. I also brought more items for the FE gifts, now I just have to put everything together. Now for some great news! I am in the process of booking a Halloween trip to Disney in October for MNSSHP and a free visit to Sea World. This trip will be a surprise for the kids(I can't wait to surprise them) DH had no clue until I sprung it on him. Needless to say that he is not ok with this trip, but I will bring him around. Our anniversary was a couple of days ago and I didn't know what I wanted at the time. Well let's just say that I figured it out and promptly told him I wanted more Disney. He called me a spoiled brat(I"ll wear that title proudly)! I am so thrilled to get more Disney.

HOORAY!!! More Disney magic! I've wanted to go during Halloween for years now, never can get it to work with the work schedule. That is so exciting!

I am McLovin your trip report :-) A few years ago we planned, scheduled and paid of a disney cruise and my dh grandmother got real sick and then we found out I was preggo w/ child 3 so we cancelled. My dd (8) and ds(12) ask quite often when were going to replan the trip. I'm having a hard time getting dh to agree to go again so I can relate to your dh being reluctant. SUper job on your FE. It looks great. I'm anxious for your trip to get here so you can post more!!!!

Thanks for joining in! I really wish you the best on convincing him to go again. There is finally a light at the end of tunnel, I can't wait to get on that ship. Plan on booking the second cruise not long after we step foot on the ship.

It is getting closer

12 days until we leave for the cruise! It still feels like I have 100 things to do. I have pretty much completed everything for our trip in October, the only thing left is to book the hotel room. I am hoping that TS Katia stays away from CC so that we can stop there. I hope that another one does not follow her to throw a wrench in our plans.

12 days will go by so fast you'll be on the ship in no time! I hope the storms stay away. That was one of my first thoughts when I saw Irene, I was so sad it would probably be messing with tons of peoples' vacations
