Today is a sea day and formal day.
Before I forget - we did decorate our door yesterday. As some of you know we were suppose to take a DCL cruise back in 2010 - but wound up switching it to a land trip as DH thought he was going to lose his job. I had made magnets back then. . it didn't seem like a lot of magnets until we started to decorate. :)
Not the best picture - not sure who took it. Anyhow, you can even see our Fish Extender to the right there. ..waiting for gifts!
We were up at 6:30 am. So the girls and I got dressed and took out all the Fish Extender gifts for decks 6 and 7 and headed out. It was a lot of fun. The girls felt like they were robbers, but giving instead of taking. It was hard not to giggle as we ran down halls while people slept and slipped things into their stockings. I really bought too much as we had a hard time at some stockings. We passed out candy, pirate jewelry, pirate lip balm, pirate games, beach balls, pirate finger nail polish/compacts (for the older girls), I made coasters, and we bought custom cameras.
On the way back to our stateroom we passed 2 fish extenders that were not on our list. So we decided since we had some extra stuff we would go get them & come back and fill these stockings too. When we got back to our stateroom - there was stuff in our extender!! In hindsight I wish I had thought to take pics of the filled extender. So after oohing and aaaahing over the goodies we found waiting for us - we grabbed some of the extra stuff and went back down the hall to fill the extenders that were not on our list. And again, giggled.
We then headed down to Lumineres for the ala carte breakfast instead of hitting the buffet. We stopped before heading in for a shot with the Mickey statue
As well as in front of the Gingerbread House
The napkins were folded to look like a suit jacket - and Maddie wanted her shrimp to have a picture with the napkin
Then we took the girls to the kids club, while John & I hit the Buena Vista Theater to see The Avengers. Wow, it was a 3 hour movie - but we enjoyed it. John even asked me if I would add the movie to his Christmas wish list. :) Done, and done.
After the movie John and I walked around the ship a bit. . .. .the stoes had some cute window displays
We then browsed in the stores but didn't buy anything.
Since we have an early dinner (5:45) and we had eaten so late - we weren't really interested in lunch.
We then got the girls from the kids club in order to get ready for formal night. After we were dressed we found lines in the lobby for formal pics - so we got into line.
I bought several of the pics, but only see one loaded into photobucket - Madison and Makayla wearing their birthday tiaras
After the pics we had to wait for Luminere's to open for dinner. They had music playing in the lobby and two CMs out there dressed up dancing. My shy (not) daughters walked up and joined in dancing with them.
They had a great time.
We were then seated for dinner. Eric, Tiago and Denny came over to sing to our girls. Eric made a guitar out of a dish cover & a pepper grinder. .
They brought the girls birthday cupcakes. John and I both passed on dessert saying we were full.
Hmmm, John and I got a dessert anyhow. . .
the girls with Eric
the disney photographer came around to take pics as well
Makayla and I
Madison and John
My DDs loved that the lights in Luminere's have roses in them.
After dinner we went back to our room to change. We then headed down to the Promenade Lounge as they were having a family dance party. I don't remember what the issue was - but Maddie started a fight, and we left in a huff/hurry. Once down in the lounge I realized I forgot both my camera and my phone. :( It was a shame as the kids had fun dancing and doing the limbo.
After a bit we went to watch the show - Twice Charmed. It was a nice play.
After that we decided to call it a night. Tomorrow is another sea day.
Oh - I got a giggle in the room. My DDs were intrigued by this sign on the bunk beds:
My daughters wanted to know who Max is. :)
Here is the room set up to sleep 5.
