    I'm not sure how to tell them, but you should all wear Disney shirts that day.

    I spent a little time in photoshop last night and added our whole extended family to one of the picture's of the ship. It's corny but pretty cute. I also used the Disney font to write in yellow the date of the cruise along the side of the boat. I've got that printed out.

    Now we are considering (depending on who in the house you ask):

    1) a scavenger hunt with clues about the gift
    2) a poem that explains the gift
    3) word jumbles that they have to solve to figure out the gift
    4) putting fake "mail" in the mailbox with an invitation for them to the cruise
    5) a pretend crystal ball where we "tell their future" of going on a cruise

    You could add all of the photos to a dvd (like watching home movies) and at the end put "our next vacation with dates and family members listed".

    I would also suggest the slide show. You could do it as a DVD or as something like Power Point and be sure you have Disney music playing softly in the background.

    You could make it be about all the things that have been built for them. If you have pictures of the "family" house being built, include it. A card made by your DD's shows up on screen then your DD's hand it to them in real life. Then may be a desert for the dinner you're about to have. Then a few pictures of the Dream being built and then the next screen would be the picture you created last night with the dates on it.

    No matter what you choose, it will be fun I'm sure!

    I think we are ready for tomorrow! I ended up taking a poem and turning it into a scavenger hunt. They'll follow the clues to find a Mickey Mouse, suntan lotion, dramamine (my MIL gets motion sick on boats!), and then the picture of the ship with all of us photoshopped into it. It turned out pretty cute.



    Tomorrow after Jillian's big choir concert and dinner we will give them their anniversary card and the first clue. I really hope they like it!
