Sorry.

I think the more the merrier -- I am sorry if my earlier post came off like I was upset about late joiners -- I'm not at all!!! I would want to participate -- we are looking forward to this -- this is our 1st Disney cruise & have heard wonderful things about the FEs. I was just worried about the cut off date b/c I was worried my FE gifts won't all match -- worried about getting my gifts done for everyone in time!! Sorry!!!

Everything I have read so far says that they decorate by Thanksgiving, so it should be!

I'm also hoping it is!

So the FE is closed? Is there any way at all we can join? We just booked the cruise 2 days ago so there was no way for us to sign up sooner! Levi will be terribly disappointed, we didn't know about FE's until not too long ago and I promised him we could participate next time we cruise.

Maybe someone can send me the list? Even if we don't receive anything if its too late for people to add just one more to what they are making, it would still be fun for my son to hand stuff out to others. The giving of stuff is just as much fun as receiving it!

Hi Leigh! Welcome! Technically the FE is closed, BUT if you don't mind that it might be too late for some peoples things, I would be happy to add you to our FE Group. If send me your info I can add you and send the spreadsheet to you. :-)

I don't mind more joining either..........but I am worried about everything matching. I don't want anyone to feel slighted if things aren't the same. I made gifts for each kid and then one gift for the adult couples and the adult singles. I know I would not be able to duplicate the kid gifts or adult gifts exactly the same but I sure don't want anyone left out!!! So, I say join and just know I (we) will do our best to make it fun and exciting for everyone participating!

Even if we only get 1-2 things, Levi will be perfectly happy, I know we are coming in late so I'm not expecting anyone to have to go out of their way to accommodate us, just if anyone has extras we'd appreciate it!

He is more excited about 'delivering' stuff for other people anyways!

I can't pm you (not enough posts), but our cabin number is 2050 (for me and Levi, I don't think my parents/grandparents will really participate, but they are in 8642 and 8644) my email is magenta_starr_03 at hotmail.com (with the @ where it says at of course)

There is me, Leigh-Ann (single adult, I'm 26 if that matters!) and Levi (5). Levi has lots of food allergies and we are both vegetarian.

I showed him a youtube video tour of the ship today, he is so excited! I think he is most looking forward to playing mini-golf, I have no idea why but he things it is so cool to play mini golf on a ship.


Is there many kids his age going? I guess its after the holiday week so maybe not? Levi is a homeschooler!

Busy, busy!!!

I'm finding myself in Wal-Mart, the fabric store and dollar store nearly every day now trying to tie up loose ends. Got a lot done today on one set of my FE gifts
and I can't wait to put everything together. This has been so much fun!

I'm going crazy! Ahh I can't find my double needle to see the pirate outfits. It's somewhere in my house... I hate cleaning.

But we're closer to the cruise, and I need to get making the FE gifts. DH is officially "unavailable" because Halo 4 came out... So I'm watching DS and crafting... Or trying to.

I'm so excited! I can't wait to cruise.

waiting impatiently for the cruise! I am so in need of a vacation! I have about 90% of stuff done (FE, gifts bought, letter/invites written and printed, journals made for DD, travel activity books made for them (we are driving), Pirate costumes bought, Cinderella dress ready, Cinderella build-a-bear dress bought for DD's fav bear, magnets made etc....)

Now if I would just get the FE, shirts and pillowcases from the etsy lady life would be good. I know I still have time but I feel the clock ticking. LO

Levi just brought me a pirate book so I could make his outfit. I made like 10 halloween costumes this year for all of his friends so I I thought I was done with costumes! I guess not!


I made his vest/pants/silk shirt as a dressy-er outfit but I have to re-do the cuffs as its a bit short (never tried that pattern before, it runs crazy small!).

Last time we went on a cruise I made outfits for every single day - we will see about this time!
