Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

What a Weekend!!!


Wow!  This was a weekend with a ton of action.  Here’s a quick rundown.

-Had our Christmas party with just the 7 of us.

-Drove 100 miles in a snowstorm.

-Took Honey’s mom out for dinner for her birthday.  Yum!!!

-Had a Christmas party with Honey’s extended family.

-Finished stealth knitting.

-Ate a ton of good food.

-Re-enacted the Nativity with some interesting new costumes.  The dog was Baby Jesus!

-Introduced our puppy to her puppy cousin.

-Drove home in sub-zero weather.

-Took Honey to three different doctors.  He has shingles, and one eye is swollen shut!

Here’s a recap:

We’re supposed to leave for Texas tomorrow to spend Christmas with my family, but there’s more snow on the way, and Honey needs to feel a whole lot better before we’re going anywhere.  I can drive the motorhome, but probably not 900 miles!

Here’s a little bit of (kind of) knitting content.

It’s my new Snowbaby, and it’s called “Hooked on Knitting”.  So cute!

And this one, for the camping family.  Notice the 5 kids!

I’m off to clean and repack.  I may need to make some Christmas cookies too!

  1. Thanks for the post- a good break from my current activity!
    Was Honey a wise man or a wise guy?
    Baby Jesus was too cute!! 😉

  2. Wonderful weekend! (Anybody suggest to you that oatmeal paste, oatmeal baths can help the shingles discomfort?) Oh, and I have regretted not buying that snowbaby 2 years ago when I saw it, so I just bid on one on eBay! See what you did! (Giggle!) Hope your trip to Texas is really wonderful!

  3. Looks like lots and lots of fun! Happy holidays to you and yours! :o)

  4. Ohh poor Honey- the shingles hurt. I thought they were more painful than childbirth! It looks like you have already had a blast with the kids – be safe on your way to Texas. Merry Christmas

  5. Oh my gosh! I LOVE the snowbaby knitting; and the camping snowbabies are adorable. I hope your hubby feels better soon. Merry Christmas to you.

  6. Honey sure is having one heck of a year!! May he feel well enough to make the trip-have wonderful holidays!!

  7. Oooh! I hope DH feels better very soon and is a fast healer. Sending healing thoughts his way…

    I love your Snowbaby(s)…and knitting, too! So cute.

    Safe travel and a wonderful Merry Christmas where ever you all may go.

  8. Oh, shingles in the eyes is nasty stuff. We’ll be praying for a quick recovery! Have a great Christmas!
