March Update

Posted by Kelly on March 5, 2013 in Family, My Life |

Wow – things move fast around here.  Hayley is now 8 months old, been in the new house almost a year, construction software is kicking ass, and life is generally pretty good.  Busy, but good. Went skiing for the weekend with Ryan and Marie at their gorgeous place up in Big Bear this weekend, and […]


St. Pats Drinking

Posted by Kelly on March 17, 2008 in Family, My Life, Sydney |

For more years than I care to remember, I have been a drinking MACHINE on St. Pats.  I worked at Brennan’s Pub for years running the turtle races, and as a result I would drink there – often from 6am until 2am the next day – every single year.  This year I ended up with […]


Courage at the D-Land

Posted by Kelly on December 23, 2006 in Family, Sydney |

Took Sydney to Disneyland – our Xmas tradition with the Chidachis – this week.  Stayed in the hotel, ate at Blue Bayou and Goofy’s Kitchen (some fine fare there) and generally had a fantastic time with my favorite person in the world. Th eonly two rides whe hadn’t been on were the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, […]


General ranting

Posted by Kelly on September 25, 2006 in Adventures, Aviation, Family, My Life |

Ok – so the flight to Sedona was awesome, the trip was awesome, the flight home was perhaps the best I have ever had, and the US got absolutely stomped in the Ryder Cup.  Now I need to get a few items off my chest: Raising a child is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, […]


Sydney at Disneyland

Posted by Kelly on February 12, 2006 in Family, My Life, Sydney |

Sydney danced again at Disneyland today – just like last year. It was great of course, and she did a great job in a more supporting role. Her Alice role will be her big one this year. 🙂 She got such a spectacular report card this quarter, that I decided to take her to New […]


One HELLUVA party

Posted by Kelly on January 8, 2006 in Family, My Life |

So – I figured it would be something good, but I just had no idea how great my 40th birthday was going to be. Arrive at golf course at 9:30 for breakfast, to find out that I’m not just playing with my parents, Pam, and Pam’s parents – but there is in fact a golf […]


Daddy Dancing

Posted by Kelly on June 10, 2005 in Family, My Life |

Sydney has a dance recital next weekend (Father’s Day weekend, thank you), which is of course very exciting. She is in four parts for this one, including two – count them – TWO solos. She is almost 8, and very talented and an incredible genius and gorgeous. To do my part for the recital I […]


Kris Graduates

Posted by Kelly on May 25, 2005 in Family |

Truly incredible. My sister graduated from nursing school yesterday. An RN. Lots of people do it, sure. But very few do it while having not one – but TWO kids, one who is hell on wheels, the other with a small heart defect, as well as losing a grandmother in the process. I told her […]


Gracie’s Heart

Posted by Kelly on April 29, 2005 in Family |

Ok – so my niece Gracie (second one – sister of exceptionally cute but high speed terror Katie) has something called a Ventricular Septal Defect . In short, it means a hole inside your heart, that happens to about 1 out of 100 babies. I can’t tell you how much it sucks that that 1 […]
