A chilly, rainy evening here in Orlando as we pack up and prepare to head home to the snow! We have had some wonderful weather, too.

We found the parks surprisingly manageable the last few days, though we did steer clear during Christmas week, and New Year's Eve. Now we just have to get settled back at home, de-decorate (as Silverfox so beautifully put it) and start planning for the cruise!

Safe Travels on your trip home!

Yes, it has been a pretty gloomy day in Florida.

So glad you had some good days in the parks.

Oh,you've miss some snow, that's for sure! Glad you had a nice sunny time. It's always good to go from one vacation to the next. It eases the withdrawal pains.

Safe travels!

Spent the evening watching basketball, football and working on my FE gifts.

I too was looking for a confirmation of FE participants so I can figure out how many items to make.

Fish Extender

We REALLY want to participate in the fish extender for the Fantasy March 9th cruise. If anyone has started one and we can join in that would be great!!! This cruise we are platinum members and we would really like to shake it up and surprise our kiddos. Thanks a bunch!

Please Confirm FE Participation

If you have signed up to participate in the FE please review the list and please send me a PM confirming that your information is correct and that you still plan on participating. I would like to know either way so I can make sure the list is accurate.

I added you to the list, but I did not know the specifics.

Thanks all -- we made it safely home, though we brought back two seriously nasty Disney bugs with us. DD caught a bad stomach virus mid-week, and then DH fell victim on Saturday as we travelled back.

He had his hair cut in the Magic Kingdom barbershop on Saturday morning, and even sprang for pixie dust in his hair, so he was the perfect study in contrast: cheerful hairdo, and miserable countenance!

And I must say that after getting everything settled here at home, I now remember why I enjoy cruise vacations so much: no grocery shopping, no traffic jams, no laundry, no cleaning, no cooking. And that was just on our last vacation!

Oh yuck! The flu has been ripping through families. I've had 2 down too, but not me - yet! At least they got it all done now before the cruise. I'd love to see a picture of your dh all decked out in pixie dust. What a good sport!
