    DISNEYaddict4evr Now some person I don't even know reminds me there

    I'm so excited for this trip :cool1::cool1:

    Sadly though I had to put a hold on one gift till next Tuesday since my boss at work has to help me with one step, but other that that I am ready to go gift wise. I love giving gifts, I'm told I'm quite good at it ::yes::, the sucky part is that I will start my vacation on the 23rd and can't give any gifts till at least the 2nd of December :sad:. What if I can't wait it give all your gifts to the people at the Best Western Plus :rotfl2:

    I am so excited that I have plans to pack this weekend :goodvibes, the perks of living in a cold place. I can pack for this trip and not have to worry about my clothes since I am not wearing summer items I will hopefully be donning in a few weeks time.

    So I have not lived in Cali for 9 years now, so the weather patterns evade my memory :confused:...

    For those of you close how is the weather now?
    Should I plan to wear layers for mornings and evenings in Cali?
    Will there be any rain or are you experiencing a drought as well?
    How about gas prices?
    Any other advice on things that have changed since 2003?

    I don't live in Cali but we have had annual passes for the last 3 years. Layers are your friend. Cali and Arizona are in the middle of perpetual summer right now so the highs are hovering anywhere from the mid 60's to low 80's in Anaheim next week. It's not expected to change much any time soon. Depending on easily you get hot or cold will determine the layers you need.

    You get hot, you go for ice cream at Gibson Girl or the Saloon. You get cold you hot chocolate or coffee :)

    I've never been on a Disney cruise before and I'm completely lost as to what an FE exchange is. Can someone help? It sounds like fun, sounds like some sort of meet and exchange of gifts (I LOVE making things!!) My husband and I are booked on Wonder for Dec 2nd... Can't wait!

    Well lets see a FE or Fish Extender is a pocket of some kind that hangs on the fish hook outside your door on the boat. There really are no rules, you can give one or more gifts, there is also no restriction on cost. It is basically a free for all on what you would like to do. I think I could squeeze you in, though I think we are getting right at the cut off since I leave on the 23rd. Who is in your family? Names? Ages? Favorite characters? You can email Jen (ravensilverlight@yahoo.com) your info. I can't speak for the rest of the group though.

    Check out these links for info:

    Ooooh!! Yes!! I started googling about it and found all sorts of pictures of amazing things people have made. It is only my husband (43) and myself (40) and we are traditionalists... love love LOVE Mickey and Minnie. I will contact Jen and see if we can be included. Thank you so much for the info.

    Well obviously I was just added to the FE group so I haven't done a lick of shopping for anything so I can easily add your family to mine. I just need names, ages, and any pertinent info like allergies.

    My family can include you in our FE exchange! :cheer2:
    It's myself (Tiff, 30), my mother (Barb, 61), and my daughter (Taylor, 5). She loves anything Princess if you needed info...

    That would be fine with us. I think I told you a Women's Med for me and an XL for my husband. He's still XL and hopefully you can figure out mine. I have no idea. :flower3:

    I ordered a mouse glove from Ebay and it arrived yesterday. I can't wait to sit out on our balcony and wave at everyone with my big white 4-fingered glove!! LOL!

    Are you going to Disneyland before or after your cruise? If before you can get them at almost all the gift shops.

    We just got our cruise documents from my mother in law and I completed the online check-in. Ordered my FE from Etsy and have a solid idea of what our gifts will be. It's all coming together! So excited!!!!!!!!

    Is anyone keeping a participant list? I understand I am adding last minute and many people won't be able to exchange with me and I am fine with that. I mostly want to make stuff for the kids... it is only my husband and myself in our cabin... Adrian & Trish Lopez. We have a 17 year old, Steffanie, who unfortunately will not be able to come with us as she has too many things going on with her Senior year (but she is a BIG Disney fan too and if anyone cared to make her something, she would absolutely LOVE it as she is very disappointed that she is not going to be able to make it).
    My sister and family are also going, with my niece and nephew, I am waiting to hear if they would like to participate as I just found out about all of this yesterday :)
    If someone has a list going of names and ages and such of all participating, can you please post it?

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks for getting me the names.... unfortunately, after the 2 of you Myself and my mother will not be able to add any more. We are short on time and supplies...as much as I would like to keep going i have 2 jobs which limit my time for crafting. Everyone who is on the list thus far I have got you all covered....or should I say smothered in FE gifts:thumbsup2....We are at the 3 week mark and My Family is getting so excited!!! Can't wait to meet you all!! :yay:

    ravensilverlight I reject your reality and substitute my own.

    Hi Trish...got your email. I will PM you the FE list we have already and also I will send your info to everyone on the list already. Welcome aboard!

    I too am cutting it close on supplies...these ********** that I'm making had better work or I will be VERY upset! lol...

    We leave in 17 days!:scared1:

    Since this is our first time, I have a question-
    where do you put gifts that may be too big for the pockets?
    Should I hang an additional bag behind my FE?
    My gifts probably wont fit in the traditional FEs . . . .

    Yes I am... I might have to look into that.

    Thanks for the tip :hyper:

    hmmm... extra bags might be a good idea. I would hate to just have them sitting on the group more apt to be "pick-up" if you get my drift.
