Ok gang, DH has not gotten my old email running on my computer, so please re-send your info to my gmail account. hhroth at gmail dot com.

Looks like we will have a smaller group. Let's make the cut-off for people 1/24/13 so it gives everyone a month to get things together!!

Thanks for your patience!

Fish extender

We would like to be in on the fish extender. It's my 7 year old (will turn 8 on the cruise) and myself.
Thanks!

Does anyone want to try and meet up?

We totally stink at it (lose track of time), but it would be nice to meet you all.

FE Info

For any newbies, here's some more info on Fish Extenders:

For those who are new to this fun cruise experience, the Fish Extender itself is a pocket panel you hang from the fish shaped hook outside your stateroom. These can be homemade or you can purchase them on sites like Etsy, you can also find some pictures on Google or DIS forums. Families that join the FE group hang the Fish Extender outside their cabin and then exchange little gifts with others participating in the group by putting little gifts in each other’s extenders.

Here is a thread with some basic info about it:

http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=378

It's a ton of fun, not just for kids, and you can either give one gift to each cabin, or a gift to each person in the cabin. You can give gifts a few times throughout the cruise or just once. No real set rules, just exchange and have fun! Gifts can be homemade or storebought. That's part of the fun . . . the variety of gifts that everyone brings!

Guidelines for our fish extender:
1. Each cabin is to provide AT LEAST one gift to each cabin participating in the fish extender. You can provide a gift to each person within that cabin, just the kids, or one gift for the whole cabin...that is up to you. Of course, you are welcome to give more than one gift...but the minimum is one.
2. All gifts are to be delivered between the cruise leaving port on Sunday, February 24th until 4 PM on Wednesday, February 27nd. This gives people time to still be able to pack their bags on Feb 27 before we leave the ship the morning of Feb 28th.
3.Please include a tag with your DISboard’s user name on the gift. This way everyone knows who the gift is from.

Here is a list of IDEAS of what you might want to bring for the FE on the cruise...to add to your packing list if you'd like:
1. The FE gifts that you are making/preparing -- total number will be announced after our Janurary 24th sign up deadline.
2. An FE pocket/hanger to hang outside your cabin. You can find them on eBay by searching "Fish Extenders" or you can make one or search on line other places.
3. A zip tie to help attach your FE HANGER. Some people have commented theirs have sadly walked away...but if you attach it with a zip tie...then it is not as likely to walk away.
4. Scissors to cut the zip tie when you're packing...LOL! Don't want to leave it for someone else.
5. On the forum, some people recommend bringing thank you notes so you can write a quick note to the person who gave you a gift.

Most of us have kids. We should plan a mass kids club drop-off and have a coffee!

I will be running the Princess also - nice to know I'm not the only one! Will be traveling with our kids (DD10, DS4) and cousins (DD10, DD8, DS4). Just getting started on here, so a lot to review. Cannot wait!
