I can't believe it is so close. There is a dance recital tomorrow night (dress rehearsal tonight) for DD and myself, and then I can breath and get down to business. Have a great weekend everyone!

I've got one suitcase already started, and we're going to start working on a second. I think we'll be eating dinner around the luggage for the next week.

I've just spent most of the night researching the Oceaneer's Club and potty problems. My DD3 is newly potty trained, so I'm worried about a backslide on board. Though I'm more worried about her not liking putting her pants back on by herself. I just keep picturing her walking out of the bathroom with her panties off like she does at home. I think I'll try to take frequent visits to help her in the restroom. The public does not need to be subjected to her doing her nekkid booty shake.

My 3 YO is doing great on the potty training.... when she's awake.

I occasionially (and I use that word loosely) let her sleep with us, and I know she'll want to crawl in with us since we're right beside her. I know they have plastic sheets for the little bed, but I've got my fingers crossed that they have them for the big bed. AND what happens if she does have an accident in the middle of the night? I guess I could ask to have an extra set of sheets to keep in the room.....

At home I can cut off her liquids at a reasonable hour, but I think it'll be impossible to do that on the cruise.

........which BTW is ONLY 8 days away.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can watch the ships online? Fill me in! My girls would love to see that (I would kinda like it too!). They have no idea how big the ship is in person, we keep trying to tell them, but I can't wait to see their faces when we get into port! They will be blown away!
I was feeling warm in the house this afternoon and mentioned it to hubby, he went and checked, and it looks like our A/C isn't working . It is soooo hot outside, the heat index is over 100 degrees, and it is the weekend. DH is not happy!!!

I used to go to Walmart and buy a 3.00 shower liner and put it under the sheets whenever we traveled and the kids slept on beds. Even at home! Cleans easy with Lysol and a new sheet, ready to go! I'd request an extra sheet set. See you all in 1wk 1day!!!!!

**quick note**

Hey guys, I was going to try to put stickers on each FE gift stating who it was from but I have way too many of them! So, here is my idea.... after our cruise is over i will post a pic of all the gifts that I handed out so you know who they were from. It's so much easier than having to tag each gift. You guys might want to think about that too if it starts becoming over whelming.

the shower curtain idea is the best one I've heard in a while! Thanks!

I'm voting for the picture later rather than label now! Just starting to feel the crunch of getting everything in order....

We used to camp at Jetty Park, so I've seen the Wonder sail quite a few times! I truly never thought I'd ever get to actually be on the ship.... It's an awesome sight.

Yeah, I had just started to notice how many stickers it was going to take!! I spread all the gifts out and took a picture of everything I'm giving. When we get back I'll post it.

How fun about your camping trips!! I bet it is a sight going by. And how exciting that you will be on it this time. I think I'm going to be one of the people waving like mad by the railing rather than in the middle of the crowd by the stage.

A pic of the Wonder setting sail today!


I just wish I would have figured out how to take a pic with that web cam when I had a good closeup shot of it.

Here's something that brings home how close it is. The Wonder only has two more sailings before it picks us up for our trip.

Any body who would like to do a Fish Extender Exchange, but did not get in on time?

We are getting a Fish Extender for DD10. We were too late to get into the groups Fish Extender, but if anyone else just got on board and would like to do one with us, I'd be happy to do it. Just PM me.

If not, I picked up some stuff that I will give to DD10 anyways. Just thought I would throw it out there.

We are also getting a pillowcase with her name on it and going to give it to guest services to have all the characters sign it.

Can't wait. It's getting closer.

Does your family enjoy talking about it as much as we do? It's not much fun planning when DH and DD10 don't like to go into details. I'm really glad that I have you guys to share the planning time with and come up with some magical ideas for our cruise.

Our kids will both be 5 the day we set sail & our son will be 6 during the cruise. Any birthday celebration extras we should plan ahead? Thanks!!

I still have a few items left over for our exchange. I may have just enough to add you guys to MY list. If anyone else has extra gifts and would like to exchange with you guys they may contact you directly since the "official" list is closed. If you guys would like to exchange with me & my family, send me an email at ctx306 at aol dot com.
