nevermind - FEE

Disregard my previous message. I'm a 1st time disney cruiser and a newbie to this board. I didn't realize I already received a response. Thanks FloridaFun!

Thank you!

As part of the game, we were asked the most unusual place was where we'd done "stuff". He answered on the boss's couch at my former office.

No problem, Amy (threeofhearts). I would have normally sent you a PM, but you need to have 10 posts and I was worried that you may not be able to even get it and knew for sure you could not respond there. This board is quite busy with a great group. If you emailed me, it has not come through yet. I will be sure to respond so that you know it was received and send you the link in that response email.

Hi Lori (glorib) – I am planning to keep my gifts a surprise for everyone until I give them. Cabin gifts for kids is totally normal. I personally think it would be really hard to come up with a gift that would fit all the different ages, so I am doing a little something different based on age as well. Plus, my girl and boy gifts are different as I had trouble finding something that I could make that fit for both. I am great about dreaming things up, but always shocked at how hard it actually is to put into practice.

I am sure everyone will love what you are doing for the FEE gifts. My mom and I have been working on ours together and laughing most of the time. When we get one messed up we laugh and say we will hand that out to someone not in the FEE and mark it from “Captain Stubing and your cruise director Julie.”

This!! I, for one, will appreciate the work and effort that goes in to putting out the FEE gifts. No matter what it is, we will just love getting a little something in our extender.

And a special appreciation to those who are in more than one FEE and especially Beth, who is in all 3. You may need a separate carry-on just for the gifts.

With that said, I can share a bit of what I'm doing. Each cabin in our group will be getting a personalized door knob hanger, with family name and DIS name. I've also made name magnets for each person in our group that they can attach to their door if they wish. I also got a big lot of trading pins of e-bay, and will be giving some to all kids on the list. I have a few other things that I will get together. We plan on dropping off all our gifts at once, rather than on multiple days.
I've also ordered a FE off ETSY, which should be here in the next 2 weeks.

I can't believe how fast the countdown ticker in my sig is going down. 7 weeks tomorrow!!

Welcome to the group!! Let us know if you have any FEE questions. I've learned a lot but the others on this board can run circles around me!

I guess I should get started on my FE gifts! Now that Christmas is over, I plan on heading into cruise readiness mode...I got some stuff done yesterday, we had some returns/exchanges and happened to look in the dress section and I've now got dresses for semi-formal night for 3 out 4 of us, just need to get the last one and get my DH a matching tie. I also have dresses for formal night for myself and my youngest DD, so 2 more to go and a matching tie for DH and we are set (well other than shoes) It would help if my kids didn't grow between cruises...or maybe we should just cruise more often so I don't have to buy new clothes every time.

Now that dd knows about the cruise (kicking myself that I didn't think to record the surprise on Christmas morning), she is anxious to "meet" other dd11's and dd10's on our cruise. You can email me at dch7777@msn.com, and I'll forward to dd. Yes, I'm overprotective.

Can't wait for this cruise!! I need to get cracking on my FE gifts now.

I'm one of those families that have a broad age range. We would love anything! I think it's more the fun of the "surprise" than the actual gift. I have been thinking long and hard about my FE gifts. I 'd found such cute little gifts tat would be perfect for little girls who love disney, but then I saw that most of my group had teen and tween boys, lol!
I would love to keep things a surprise.

FSU88, those are beautiful! It is so rare that my kids get to see their names pre-printed on anything, so these are wonderful!

I just counted five 11 yo girls in the FE groups. My dd11 is going to love this! I hope they all get to be great friends.

Well, I renewed my subscription to Touring Plans and did a plan for each of the parks we want to visit at WDW. I'm hoping we can get everything done! The boys want to do Epcot, AK, and MK! But just a few things at each of the first two. I'm hoping to be at AK by 11-11:30 and MK by 4. I also hope the lines aren't too bad, it projects the crowd levels high since it's the week of President's Day.

FE Funny

So I'm just now getting around to making our Fish Extender mailbox type thing. I sew and have an embroidery machine, so I was looking at mickey head designs for the pockets. DH wants steamboat Willie, I want Minnie, Caleb wants Peter Pan, and Ella wants - wait for it - one with a top hat, monocle, and mustache! The girl loves this new mustache trend! (Over the summer, she requested that I draw mustaches on her for swim meets - said they gave her "stache power!")

So - my point to that story - those of you in my FEE group, don't be surprised if you see ours and Ella has a Mickey Head design with a mustache!
