All caught up! Such fun. Like Jackie, my first thought was maybe the ship has Black Friday deals. I was laughing as I thought it but you heard they really do?? That would be really cool. Can't wait to hear about it and see the spoils.

And do they also do any form of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner? You could make like Pilgrims out on Castaway Cay!

I am in awe of your energy and organization between the prep, fish extenders, this time next week reveal etc.

Can't wait to hear all about your adventure!

Well apparently there is LOBSTER for thanksgiving dinner!!! I think they do have a traditional spread as well... I may have to have a little of both! CCay is the following day, so there really will be a lot of beached whales out there on the shore!!!

Well, I am curious to see what kind of deal they may offer for shopping... it will be interesting! However, Black Friday is CCay day... so I wonder if they really will have "specials" since they only open the shops in the late afternoon... We'll see...

No worries! I will probably buy one on the ship, I removed the hair from the other hat, and Griffin wants to wear it like that anyhow, so I don't know that I need to buy one in the end...

I will wear it my first day for sure!

48 hours!!!! ONE more night??!!

Can you believe it?! I cannot! So here I am trying to cross check all my packing and last minute shopping. It all has to be done tomorrow, with minimal stuff to do on Friday. We leave LATE Friday night, getting into MCO even later. BUT as of Friday after school we will be on VACATION!!! SO it can't be better than that, right??!!

I am not sure that I shared this, but Here is the itinerary for the cruise!
Saturday we leave on our week long adventure! We are staying at a hotel there port side Friday night... I can't remember which one and I am too lazy to get up and check We are renting a car from the airport as a one day rental to get us to the hotel, and to port (DH will drop us and our luggage off and then take the car to the rental office). On Saturday morning we plan to get breakfast and then head on over. Our check in time is 11am. We have printed our documents, etc. and completed all online registration required. I don't anticipate any trouble with this first morning/day...

We have a rendezvous with my inlaws there in the terminal...

Once they let us on, we will likely head up to get lunch, and study the navigator some more! I hope to maybe switch our tea to a different day, so I will want to try and manage that, but I am not going to wait in a long line to do so. Once we can go to our cabin we will do that and drop our stuff off, then of course head up on deck to relax until the drill! I don't know what the weather will be like, so that will determine what we do... The kids will be already registered for the kids club, so we will likely go explore that, and help them to know where our cabin is onboard.

I know they are going to be a little confused since the ship is not the same one we were on this past summer. It is smaller than the Dream, so that is a good thing.

We leave port Saturday and are At Sea for two days! We arrive in St. Marteen on Tuesday, and then arrive in St. Thomas/St. John VI on Wednesday. Thursday we are At Sea, and Friday is Castaway Cay! And Saturday we return, hopefully well rested, well fed, and TAN!!!

I have requested the following dining rotation:

Parrot Cay, Lumiere's, Animators, Parrot Cay, Lumiere's, Animators, Parrot Cay

I chose this rotation because I wanted to make sure that we were in Lumiere's for formal night, and I wanted to have Parrot Cay for Pirate Night . We are in Animator's for our "Thanksgiving" evening (which is traditionally the Lobster feast night, so that will be interesting!!!)... and we will miss the second night in Lumiere's since we have Palo's but we will probably go sit with everyone for dinner, before we go. My inlaws will be with the boys at dinner officially that night, and take them to the show. We will be back in Parrot Cay for our final night after being at Castaway, so it seemed appropriate then, too. There are special menus throughout the week, so being in the same restaurant isn't a problem.

There are a few new stage productions this cruise, and as I mentioned earlier, the hope is that there will be a PremEAR as Sea for the new Muppet Movie on Thursday!

We have already booked Tea, Brunch, and some Spa time, including the rainroom, for this cruise. We didn't book any excursions in advance, because we will likely do that ourselves off the boat. DH and I have been doing some research

From what I can tell, it seems as if we have lucked out with the weather... I am not holding my breath until we are there!!!

I am really looking forward to this cruise!!!

I have all my FE gifts taken care of, I will post those and my magnets tomorrow evening so you can see them.

I am looking forward to relaxing on the beach, and enjoying the sights!

I did get a new underwater camera! So I hope to take some different photos this time around.

Well, that is it for now! Stay Tuned for one more update!!!

I am beginning to feel a bit like the White Rabbit -- always running late! That's why I texted you yesterday -- I knew I couldn't miss your send-off!

The goody bag contents are great! Do you have a pattern you used for your drawstring bag? I think my two need some for the summer trip if I can manage to figure out how to make them.

The charm bracelet is CUTE, CUTE, CUTE! I love Shag's artwork and what a deal on the price! That will be very fun to wear this week!

The cruise itinerary sounds fabulous! You are going to have so much fun!!!
