OK, I just have to share this. My Aunt Jeanne paid for 39 members of our family to go on a family reunion cruise. At the time, my boys loved the kids program. Kids have to be potty trained to leave them. Ben had been doing pretty well so far. But one afternooon we got a page from the kids club - It was a "Code Brown". Yes, that's what they actually called it!

You're getting closer! I really like the pillowcase idea. Our autograph books are packed away as well.

The pillowcases sound like a great idea!!! That will be something they can use for a long time after, remembering their wonderful vacation!

And laying around on the beach for an afternoon sounds heavenly. Mocha in hand, watching the waves. Yep, sounds pretty darn good!

I really need to stop reading peoples ideas...I keep shopping! Thanks to you!!!!...I went on Etsy and searched for pillowcases. They are so cute. I am amazed at some of them. I ended up ordering one. It's the most I ever spent on a pillow case, thats for sure. But I think it will be great to have as a momento. I didn't realize that they had such cute customized ones.

I am curious about the FE, too. I would definitely need to order one. Making my own would be a lesson in frustration.

Your plans are shaping up so nicely and March is just around the bend. Can't wait to hear more about your preparations!

Your gifts for the FE exchange sound great. I think I'm leaning towards not doing the one on our cruise, I just can't come up with an idea that I like AND that I can implement. I still have a bit of time to make up my mind though.

The link that I gave you for the navigators is part of a FANTASTIC TR, lots of great info and pictures, check it out when you have time
Oh that is so cool! I love seeing the navigators!! Thank you! It's really hard not talking about it. But, we're getting close, so I think I can make it. I just hope they don't discover the stuff around the house or that's coming in the mail!!

Do we get to see pics of the FE, pillowcases, and magnets? I hope so! I would love to see what they look like!
I'm just bouncing around lately!! I am having a tough time with work and being so busy! It doesn't allow me enough time to DIS or plan or daydream!

It also sounds very warm and inviting on this 12 degree snow day morning.

I have been hearing about the adventure/missions, too. Sounds like much fun for the kids.
Yeah, I'm thinking after our busy Nassau day, we'll just want to relax, explore the ship and take lots of pictures!! We actually had a warm up - it was 45 degrees today!!!

You should look into a cruise Jen -there is so much to do, the food is great (at least the early reports from the Dream are glowing!) and it's so relaxing. They have a great spa onboard, and they just take such good care of everyone! I'm really psyched about the pillowcases and all the surprises!

Thanks - it's certainly not my original idea! You could do it at the parks too I'm sure. or you could do a hat, a t-shirt. Just use fabric markers.

Also if you could PM the Etsy info with the cruise pillowcases. I think that sounds neat.
Jen - Thanks for the link!! I'm really excited to see that 5:00 show, so we could go to that and do Palo and not miss any dining rotations!!!
I see below you found the Etsy stuff. Stitches N Bows was our seller.

Yeah, every time they see them they will have (hopefully) wonderful memories.
Oh, I cannot wait to hit that beach!!!Even though it's "warmed" up here, It's still winter. For at least another 6 weeks. We may not see grass for 2 months!

Sorry! I said the same thing about the $ on the pillowcases!! But it's just so cool!! I tend to justify spending money on these trips and anything that goes with it by it being a special thing to make memories. It's worth it to me!!

Thanks Mary Ellen! The FE just seemed too involved to me to make a really nice one. DH and I agreed, that if I tried, I would spend twice as much as buying it, because I'd need to have a lot of "do overs"! Plus my time and frustration was worth a LOT of money to me! LOL! There seemed to be quite a few people selling them, so it was nice and easy to get one made.


Well, I survived my scrapbooking weekend. So did my family and house!! HA! It was TONS of fun and I did make some progress in the girls' scrapbooks. Not as much as I'd have hoped, but hanging out and drinking sounded better last night. It was WAY fun!! So it's back to reality and work, school, cookies etc.

I don't get too worked up about Valentine's Day, but I'd like to wish you all
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

Glad you enjoyed your scrap weekend! I need one of those soon! I'm so far behind and it always seems like I'll never catch up.

Oh and thanks by the way...I'm loving that etsy seller! Such cute stuff! Don't tell DH I'm shopping already for our October trip... She has an adorable Halloween sweatshirt on there and since this will be our first MNSSHP I just might need to order it!

I got my FE hanger on Ebay. It was really cute and shipped from China....
I'll have to take a look there and see if they still have them. It as Mickey and Minnie on it....

Didn't see what I have but found this....
http://cgi.ebay.com/3-Pocket-Minnie-...item3364c6e54e

I'll keep looking.

OK, just go to Ebay and look for fish extender
There are several.

I got my FE on ebay as well. Mine was only $6.12 and FREE shipping!! It's not the cutest one, but for the price, it is great. I searched Mickey pocket (or pocket Mickey) to find it.
We only have about 8 or 9 families right now in our exchange, and I loke it small like that. I have 9 bags made up, if we add more to our group, I'll have to make up something new for others because I am out of the stuff I bought for these. LOL!

I'm skipping individual replies. Too lazy and in a hurry. (i'm supposed to be working)

Yeah, her stuff is really cute, a bit pricey though. It was worth it to me!!

We have 19 in our group, which is plenty!! I think in the last one, it was more like 12.

I should post a link for you all to see the pictures. I'll try to remember, or else I'll take pictures when we get them. I told her I needed them by 3/1. I hope it will come a bit sooner so I don't have to panic!
