Kelly and the Kiddos

Sissie made a trip out to the OC last week with Roxanne and Cassidy (back to their california roots) to celebrate Cassidy's 9th birthday. Some highlights of the weekend included pool party at j.jae's, dancing disco in amy schwary's garage, and the 25 minute neverending ferris wheel ride on Balboa Island. And the science experiment... proof that pigs do indeed eat ham.

A little mani and pedi with the gals..

We are pig-sitting this week. This pig doesn't live in a barn. She is OC swine, living in a posh pad in Newport Beach.

Happy Year of the RAT

Ran hill after hill in the Chinese New Year 5k this weekend. 100,000 Firecrackers were set off right before the race to rid all bad spirits for the new year. Below are some pictures post-race of our stroll through chinatown. Crazy and awesome place.

A Rat Year is a time of hard work, activity, and renewal. This is a good year to begin a new job, get married, launch a product or make a fresh start. Ventures begun now may not yield fast returns, but opportunities will come for people who are well prepared and resourceful. The best way for you to succeed is to be patient, let things develop slowly, and make the most of every opening you can find. People born in an Earth Rat are said to be logical realists, shrewd, charming, ambitious, and inventive. Of course, the entire horoscope must be considered when making any personality assessment.

In Chinese, the Rat is respected and considered a courageous, enterprising person. People born in the Year of Rat are clever and bright, sociable and family-minded. They have broad interests and strong ability in adapting to the environment and able to react adequately to any changes
