Ok, the cruise definitely seems so much closer from this side of Christmas. I had great plans of getting my FEE gifts done over break but with four days left, it doesn't look like that is going to happen! There's still time, right? :-o

I've broken down everyone by age/gender so the little kids are getting something different than the big kids and the girls something different than the boys. I'm still struggling to come up with something for the dads that they'll actually like!

I was wondering, do you wrap the gifts? What about gift tags? Is it all a surprise or do we say who they're from when we deliver them?

I have been a slacker & just looked today for the 1st time in a while for airfare. There is NOTHING leaving on the 23rd that works for our return trip! We may have to stay until Sunday. Anybody else flying home into the NY area on Saturday? If so, what airline/ flight are you on?

My son & I were in the same room on the Magic the last week of August out of NYC. We had the BEST stateroom hostess, I hope she is still in that area! 47 Days... I can't wait!

just a warning, y'all, that our Fish Extenders might look a little out of place, (that's the Extenders themselves, not the stuff that goes in them.) I made them for our Christmas cruise last year, so they are very Christmas-y. I'm not going to make new ones, but I may add some hearts or something to maybe make them look a little Valentine-y, since we leave the day after Valentines. So if you come across a cabin that looks like its in the wrong season, that's us!

Welcome to the cruise!!

More first time DCL cruisers, just like us. FloridaFun has been gracious enough to organize a FEE. There are 3 groups and we are filling up the 3rd group now.
http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=479

After confirming your info to Beth(FloridaFun), she will give you a link to the google doc with all the info. It will list all the groups and who will be in our 3rd group. Please get your info to her ASAP.

Take some time and scan some of the old posts here, especially the OP. I will also see if I can post some other thread links.
OP http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...04&postcount=1
Quick FEE explanation, if needed http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=390

Alright - how do you rename a link? I could not figure it out


Beth - I say we call this the end to the FEE sign up. With nickiB and sasbass wanting to join, and also 3ofhearts also showing interest, each group is about the same size now. Also, if you want to copy me on the info they provide, I can update the google doc for you. I'm a spreadsheet nerd and like doing that sort of stuff.

Jeff

Yay! Another little one! I've got a DD3 as well. Maybe we can set up a play date at the Mickey pool. I don't think mine will actually play with other kids in the Kid's club. She's just turning 3 in January so she's still in the "play by myself" phase.

My husband is getting into the FEE's now that he sees me working on them. He's thinking more creatively than me so there's hope for us yet! Ordered our FE from etsy today. So excited!

Welcome! This is also my family's first cruise. I have a DD9 and a DD3. I agree that we should do a playgroup at the pool for the DD3s.

Hi Everyone –
Have not been on here in a couple of days and tons of catching up for me to do!

Jeff- What design did you pick for your FE on Etsy? I am even getting excited to see what everyone has for a FE for my to put my gifts into. Your gifts are looking great. I am totally looking forward to having our doors covered in magnets. If you have not printed out our door hanger, just wanted to let you know it is Haworth.

Andrea – You are so far ahead of me in the planning. I keep thinking I will get to the store to perhaps get a couple of new outfits, but I have not made it past the thinking stage. My guess is that my kids will be in the club during formal night anyway, so I am not too worried about them.

Lori – Sew and have an embroidery machine… I so wish you were my neighbor. What kind of embroidery machine do you have? I have been wanting to buy one, but have no experience at all with them. I went to Joann’s 2 days ago and the lady working there seemed to know nothing about them either. She could hardly get the graphic onto a thumb drive from the computer and then couldn’t get it to work on the machine. That scared me as I thought if she can’t make the machine work and is the sales lady, will I just get it home and have an expensive paper weight.

Dorothy - Looking forward to seeing your FE. Should make it easy for me to remember that your gifts go there.

FEE – Sounds like a good plan to me too Jeff to close the 3rd group. If there is anyone else out there that has been lurking and not joined and would be heartbroken not to do the FEE, please email me by the end of tomorrow. I have added nickiB, sasbass, and threeofhearts to group 3 and sent all of them link back in an email. Jeff, if you could add them to the spreadsheet you set up and the cabin location graphic, I would be forever thankful. You can not begin to imagine how helpful your FEE by Cabin list has been to me. I had been taping and folding all the lists together and now have one list that is just perfect for me. Thank you!

Ok..I am new on here. Very excited about everything. We are planning our FEE gifts & wondering if anyone can help me. Are there any basic guidelines, rules, minimum/max pricewise etc. That we need to know. Can't wait to meet y'all. Also are any of the kids(tween/teens hooked up to chat online amongst themselves?
Thanks!! Nicki

I ordered a pirate themed FE from Bullfrogs and Butterflies Boutique on Etsy. I should have it in a week or so. Here is the example of it.





Sorry about your last name, I must have transposed a couple of letters when making the new sheet. I've corrected it on my end now too.

I will get the graphic and the last tab on the spreadsheet updated tonight. I put down about 500 sq ft of laminate flooring in our basement today and I'm ready for a break. Doing those will be get me back into a vacation mood.

FEE graphic updated

Google Doc last tab updated also

Rule #1 - Have fun with it.
Rule #2 - see Rule #1

No guidelines - do whatever you are comfortable with. Hand made or store bought, or a combo of both, it's up to you.
