Good Morning Cruisers!

Saw Scott off to Denver at 6am. Catching up here. Currently is 9.2 below 0, wind at 21 mph which makes the wind chill off the chart for my weather station, I think that means below 20 degrees below 0. It started snowing just as Scott left, hope he makes it to Denver before snow gets bad, and that his plane is not delayed too much.

Yesterday was a beautiful day for our 5K race!

We have been seeing pictures of ice storm in New England. Hope everyone up there is safe and warm!

Good to hear from you Ken and Alex and Cayla – sorry that you all have been working so much. Alex and Carolyn, sounds like you have been doing lots of races!

Have a great day everyone!

Hello cruisers,

I'm already on the list---it is myself and 3 kids (boy age 11, boy age 8 and girl age 7 at the time of the cruise).

I earned this cruise and it was only for 4 people so I am leaving hubby and my mom home. It just wasn't worth the extra money for another cabin. My kids will be in the kids' club a lot (they loved it the last time) so I will be all alone. I was wondering if there was someone who would not mind a tag-along.

I am 40 years old, love to scrapbook and love EVERYTHING Disney.

Hi, LoveMyLAP-BAND. I'm Brenda and would love to have you tag along with us. I will be on the cruise with my niece, by best friend and her goddaughter, ages 15 and 13 at the time of the cruise. I will be 49 on Sunday and my friend will be 42 at the time of the cruise.

Another good friend of ours is very, very into scrapbooking, so both know a bit about that. A couple of her pages have even been published. And I love Disney as well.

We are all on the Land and Sea Package, so we will be at Disney World before the cruise.

I think there is another single mom coming along with a daughter about the girls' ages, but I can't remember right off who it is. I will have to review the thread.

Anyway, I know that we are going to have a great time. Look forward to talking to you.

Good morning cruisers. Just checking in since I have been MIA. Been busy at work too, just finished audit with flying colors! Yippee.

There is 12 inches of snow at the house here in Salt Lake and it is cold! We are leaving for Maui on Monday for a week in Hawaii for Christmas. Can't wait for the warmer weather. Gonna relax and just chill. It will be the next best thing to actually being on the Wonder or Magic for Christmas.

Have a great holiday everyone!

Good Morning Cruisers!

LoveMyLAP-BAND!

Linda - good to hear from you! Have fun in Hawaii!

Good Morning Brenda!

I was up early, I was supposed to leave by 8:30 to get Scott at Denver airport at 10:30, last I heard, he was still on the runway at Detroit! Haven't gotten a text message for awhile, so he may be in the air now. He has missed his connection from Minneapolis/St Paul to Denver, so now I do not know when he will be in.

Weather here nice today, sunny and high of 40 degrees, tomorrow and Sunday will be in the single digits, but supposed to back up to 40 degrees by Christmas Day - doesn't look like much snow between now and then, we did get a dusting last night, but it will be gone later today.

Have a great day everyone!

Just an update..... I checked my confirmation and we are in cabin 5518. Sorry.

Padlyn- Where in NJ are you? I am in Middletown (near Sandy Hook). I'd love to get together sometime before the cruise.

North - way north! Bergen County near Paramus. I may be in the area the first weekend of Jan (Point Pleasant actually!). We like to go to Jenkinson's during the winter - it is a nice little day away.

Sometimes we go pin trading in Somerset as well, I haven't been in a year due to work and travel schedules, but will try to make it this spring for the big event.
