no more partridge & a pear tree {goodbye 2012}

{i had to start keeping a list to keep everyone and their drugs straight.}
{i wish chase had only woken up to get his motrin at 4am. t'was not so...}
...
with 2 fevers, 1 puker, and another one with a messed up foot,
we gibson's are hoping to leave all of our ailments in 2012!!!
{and maybe even some of the sleepless nights?!}
after a whopping 3 hours of sleep last night at 2 different times,
all of our party plans have been canceled.
BUT,
i'm thinking it might not be so bad to put the kids to bed early,
and celebrate all by ourselves.
i am still in my pajamas at 2:09pm,
a vision of beauty for sean to come home to indeed!
{he is SO lucky, and i am too}.
i did manage to brush my teeth around noon,
so i'm calling it a "win."
my new year's eve will REALLY be the cherry on top if i get a shower before the ball drops.
and we don't end up at the pediatrician's office.
have no fear, i won't be letting all of these germs get in the way of my food festivities.
the show must go on!
menu and recipes below...
happy new year!!!

Oh, your poor family! I am so sorry that everyone is sick. And that foot! How sad! As a kid i used to have athlete's foot. Selson blue (shampoo) on the foot really helps to clean it up. Good luck with the sickies.
