Passing Down Crazy

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

Wait? It’s July?


I’m not really sure where the last month went.  The last time I posted was before Dreamboys graduation.  So…here’s a quick recap.

He graduated!

And then there was the party!  It rained most of the weekend, except for the four or five hours of the party.  We waited til an hour before the party started to decide whether to put tables outside or in the basement.  The sun came out and we had a gorgeous afternoon.

Let me just tell you about the food.  We didn’t get too crazy.  Dreamboy wanted brats and broccoli raisin salad.  We threw in chips and a thai pasta salad as well.  But the highlight were these!

Chocolate cupcakes filled with peanut butter mousse and chocolate ganache frosting and white cupcakes with strawberry filling and buttercreme frosting.  If you’re local and need info, call me!!!  They were fabulous!

And a picture of the fam before the party started.  Even The Genius came home for the weekend!

I’m not sure what happened to the month of June.  I was just going to sit around and knit, make meals, and do laundry.  The sit around and knit part hasn’t happened a whole lot!

My Hero and I had comprehensive physicals that led to more tests for me, which turned out to be nothing.  That’s good, but I sure wasted lots of time figuring it out!

Kids had dentist appointments and eye appointments.

I was handed a decorating project which was supposed to be just a little carpet and paint.  Ha!!!

Ms In Charge had three weeks of drivers ed.  Now she wants to drive.  All.  The.  Time.

Frankie visited Grandpa and Grandma.  When he’s home, he mows lots of lawns.

Superblonde is working on a couple of college classes.  She really hates math!

Dreamboy is working with Dad and Uncle.

The Genius is back at work, fighting for justice.

This week, a lot of my family is around, so we’re going to just hang out and enjoy all that chaos!

And, yes.  I’m knitting.  And spinning.  But right now I’m going to go make two huge pans of chicken enchiladas for dinner tonight!

  1. Congratulations to Dreamboy on his graduation!!
    I was just saying that it feels like last week was Feb —- where did March/April/May and June go??

    Mom was right — the older we get, the faster time flies!!

    Enjoy your time with your precious family!


    Do you have a name for yourself? How about “Miss If I Can Dream It, I Can Make It.”
    Too long? I’m just trying to “fit in…”
    You are one of the most talented people I know.

  3. What a beautiful happy family! Congraduations on another one down!


  4. Congratulations to your son on his graduation! What a great family! Wishing you all a wonderful, sunny, safe holiday weekend.
