We even got some special chocolate (ok, carob, but they looked just like the real thing and they tasted pretty good, too, though I can't compare the taste to chocolate since I've never been allowed to have any) cupcakes .. and ... and ... AND they even had fancy multi-colored sprinkles on top! Mom tried to find them online so we could show you, but the best she could find was these: Gourmet Tails Cupcakes (they're the same exact ones except the ones in the link are vanilla - actually, they look pretty good, too!)
She had also gotten the cat-kids some nip, and I'll tell ya, I'm not sure what it is about that stuff (I've sniffed it, and all it does is make me sneeze), but the cat-kids sure love it. Olivia & Tanner didn't even get scared with all the fireworks going off on Bayshore, but poor Finn was scared to death - he spent most of the evening hiding under the bed. Phoebe and Cosmo didn't like it either. Phoebe spent most of the evening hiding under a blanket on Mom's lap, even though I kept reminding her that Mom's tummy was hurting really badly and that was the reason she was feeling so sick. I almost reminded them that Gasparilla is only 28 days away, and that those pirates will be back firing their cannons, but I thought I'd better not.
Anyway, even though it wasn't the New Year's Eve we planned, it wasn't half bad, and even Mom is feeling a little better today, which doesn't surprise me. After all, all five of us, plus Cosmo & Aunt K. (but mostly me) have been doing our best to take care of her for like, days!
Happy New Year everybody!
