    I vote for keeping it all on one list. I'm not interested in pricey as much as I am in the "surprise" factor...so more often is better, imo! :)

    Thanks for the welcome! I received your email and I will be sure to let you know as soon as we get our stateroom assigned!!

    I like the idea of more gifts to give and receive, so it'd be great if we could keep it all one list. This is my first time on a Disney cruise and doing a FE exchange, so any little surprise will be a treat!:thumbsup2

    You're welcome! If it gets closer to time and it starts looking like you need to ship something the offer remains open. I could do it for anyone as long as they're all staying in Galveston. I could load up the truck with boxes and make a round on the island to deliver boxes (like Santa!) the night before the cruise! Geez, I almost wish y'all would! LOL!


    I think I'm with you!


    I'm thinking 1 list, too, unless we get like 50 more people pop in over the next 2 weeks. LOL!




    I just spent a couple hours scouring Pinterest for crafty ideas. Oh how I love to craft! So many ideas! Can't wait to get started!!!

    Hi Sweetpea,

    some of my info for the FE has changed. I now do NOT know my room number. I have changed to VGT. So, as soon as I get that info, I will pass it along to you:goodvibes. I believe everything else I gave will still be correct.

    I vote for keeping one list too. I think it will be fun with alllll the people we get to deliver to:)

    Jenn

    Okee-dokee! I'll get you switched to VGT!


    I try to keep it as inexpensive as possible vs. budgeting a specific amount per person. I'm usually more fixated on what to give as individual gifts and family gifts. I don't really look at the amount I'm spending. I just come up with the least expensive options that are realistic then start gathering supplies.


    I'll do that right now. :thumbsup2

    I just checked because it's not unusual for me to transpose stuff when I'm typing. Looks like I have the address correct in my contact list and on the spreadsheet. Is it going to your spam folder? My TA/friend finds my emails in her spam box sometimes. I always joke it's because I email her so much, tho. LOL! Let me know if you don't get it. I just sent it again. :)

    Oh good! Not good that my email was in your spam box but that you found it. LOL! I know I'm not the swooftest with computers so I was hoping that was the issue. I'd be clueless if it wasn't. :cutie:


    Welcome aboard! :wave2:

    Whatever you want to do for the FE gifts is fine. It's totally up to you. Got you added to the list and sent the link out to you. :wave2:


    I'm really not sure. Maybe 1/2 a Bonine? I'd call the pediatrician and ask the nurse for any recommendations they might have. :thumbsup2


    Also got you added and sent you the link to the list! :wave2:

    ***** ATTENTION: Fish Extender Participants *****

    Had an interesting suggestion brought up (Thanks, Karen! :wave2:) that I thought was definitely worth mentioning to the Fish Extender peeps out there. As you're prob'ly aware of, our group has really been growing. We're at 23 staterooms with a total of 80 people. If we elect to split this list into smaller groups it would still be optional for anyone to gift to everyone as well, not just to those on their smaller list. Does that make sense? I'm not yet suggesting a split, just puting that out there for consideration.

    Maybe we can wait until the Dec. 2 cutoff to do a final vote to split or not to split. What do you think?

    Got it! My vote is still to keep it one list. On the inaugural Alaskan cruise we had about 75 staterooms participating and it was busy but so much fun! We got new things in our FE almost every time we went back to our room! I'd love that thrill again!
