But really like one day is just valentines candy because that was a request from my daughter -her own idea so I could not tell her no. And if my mom doesn't stop finding things and bringing them home and telling me to make something cute out of them I will end up with multiple things on each day. But I have to admit she has made some great finds and I have turned them into really cute things!

In grand cayman we are doing the sting ray thing -we haven't decided if we are doing the one with the tour and beach or just the sting rays. We are just hoping for decent weather as none of us like cold water and not to mention my mom turns blue when she gets really cold! In Cozumel we are just going to go on our own -I hope I have heard right that there is a lot right by the port.

I am personally not going to Palo, but I am going to try and get lunch for my parents on valentines day (like that will be available -but I will try!). If I can't get valentines day I will try for another day.
FE's are so addicting!! I have made at least one of my adult and teen gifts for everyone. I still need to make Allie, Kayla, Brooke and Annalise their gifts. But I will do that one of the days over Christmas break. I have made each person a gift and then found some other things to give. I am trying to convince our friends to join the FE. Right now she is just focused on telling them...so maybe once they know.

They are addicting, but right now they are actually how I relax. I have so much fun making and creating them - it is so relaxing.

I as well find it to be relaxing. Just get out my sewing machine and tools and away I go. It's my creative therapy!

All CHECKED IN! One step closer to cruise!! Went on and booked Palo brunch and Dolphins in Cozumel. I have to ask DH but booked brunch just in case, always seemed to be the first thing to go. I am not sure if we will do Dolphins through Disney or on our own but that also was first excursion to go so I wan't letting that happen again. Little nervous on the excursion time. I picked 9:30, with travel time I bet I am in the water no later then 10:30....I hope it's not cold. I am a freeze baby!

I also went to do everything for our friends and AAA didn't process payment right so it still says not pd in full. So mad cause I have the papers showing it is, as I am the one who dropped it off for her. Which means I got to pick her port arrival time but no brunch or excursions. All I know is what she wants better be there on Monday or AAA will never get my business again. Not hard to process a payment. I took care of everything before I turned it over to them, all they had to do was pay it off. Arrgghhh!!!

Well it's 3:30am so back to bed for me!! Night night!

I was able to get us all checked in too! Booked Palo dinner for DH and I on the second night, Palo brunch on Valentine's day, a couple spa treatments, Dolphin Swim in Grand Cayman and Dune Buggy Tour in Cozumel. Was very disappointed that the Segway Tour that DD really wanted was not offered. I have a feeling that the next 90 days will go by quickly with all the holiday festivities between now and then!!

We got the 11 a.m. port arrival time and I was able to log on and book excursions and Palo at 11 p.m. central time. I waited until later that morning to do the online check in process.

So what has everyone booked? I booked palo brunch on valentines day. I originally had it for sunday and then changed cause our first date was valentines day 14 yrs ago..well on the cruise it wil be 14 yrs.

Can't wait to tell the girls. Today they were saying, we want this for christmas and that. And I said, " well I want a disney cruise and I am not getting that!" They said "mom you had one for this year already and we have one for next year so that is your christmas."..I said "ok so then you don't need what your asking for either."..lol they are so not expecting this.

Capri's,? Shoot we are wearing shorts!! I buy a new wardrobe every cruise too. I found some cute tops from Hollister and Abercrombie for the girls and myself!! I will be watching dresses after the holiday. DD (8) needs a new dress for formal. She wore her formal from last cruise last night to a daddy/daughter red carpet night out with our church last night and I think she has grown so a new formal is in order.

Got my DD a dress for formal night on that shopping trip also - it was so cute - pink sequins - right up her ally - unfortunately I did not have her with me and since it was in the juniors department I really wasn't sure what size to buy so I just guessed and well I was wrong - so we went back shopping the next day and I took her with me and we got her one that fits - not quite the pink shiny she wanted but very nice black with white lace thing - probably more approprite.
We are going to go to Dillards in New Orleans tomorrow because the lady in Dillards here told me that the Dillards down there is their clearence center and we may find her some more dresses there for a good price, because I really don't want to pay too much for them she probably won't wear them again before she outgrows them.
