You never call!

I know….I own a little piece of the internet and I have been neglecting it. Who knew that being a “papa” would take up so much of your life. I guess people have to experience it for themselves.

So what’s new……..for those of you who care, I “fixed” my xbox and installed XBMC on it. I can listen to music and watch a slideshow of pictures that are stored on my PC on my xbox. I can also watch home movies on my PC without having to burn a DVD. Really cool if you were to ask me. Kylie is starting to crawl and boy can she move. You turn your head for one second and she will be on the other side of the house getting into something that she is not suppose to. For some reason Sugar does not like the fact that Kylie can now move around on her own. The other day I was helping Kylie walk and Sugar ran over and tried to push Kylie down. It looked really funny and Kylie didn’t know what to do. I’ll see if I can get a video of it next time. (Or set everything up and make Sugar do it again.) Crystal and I are going to go and see Zac and Melanie in Sacramento. We found some good fares (thanks Zac for the many emails) on Southwest. We have one stop-over in Kanas City. I guess you can’t complain to the price we got them at and now I wish we were staying longer than 4 days. It will be our first time away from Kylie for an extended period of time, but knowing Zac and Mel, they will keep us too busy doing things while we are there. Shane and Adam are also going with us, so I think that we will have a lot of fun.

We are also planning Kylie’s 1st birthday. Don’t know what theme we are going to do yet, but we will have balloons! It is hard to imagine that she has been in our lives for a year now. She is really starting to become her own person and developing a personality. Crystal and I have been trying to teach her sign language like “eat”,”more” and “pain”. She has not really picked up on them yet but I am sure she will. We are planning to go over to Brent and Alisha’s house for the Super Bowl. Their son Jarren is a little more than a year older than Kylie, and they seem to get along pretty good. So until next time.

Been a very long time.

Well it had been way too long and I have not updated this site.(Other than new pictures of Kylie)  I have been very busy at work with a couple of upgrades, and busy at home with Kylie.  Crystal and I had our 4th wedding anniversary a couple of days ago.  Sure does not seem like that long.  We took our yearly picture at Joe T. Garcia’s (where we had our reception) and enjoyed a live band that was there for another wedding reception.  As for gifts, I got Crystal a treadmill that she had been wanting and she is letting me get a tattoo.  For a while now I have been wanting one and now seems as good a time.  I have had a picture for a while of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.You can view a picture here of what I am going to get. I am going to change the flame on the top of the heart a little bit. Just something to make it my own.  Anyways….

Theme

Thought that I would try my hand at creating my own wordpress theme. Does not seem too hard. (Famous last words.) Hey, I code our company self service portal for a living.  I can do this.

Also working with a new blog name. I know. I am a geek. But geeks are cooler than nerds.

About

Well where do I begin….
I am a 29 years old and living in Fort Worth, TX.  My wife Crystal and I have been living there in our house for about 3 years now.  This past March 27, we had a new addition to our family. Her name is Kylie Nicole Galaviz. Your life really does change when you have children.  Makes me really think “What did I do before she got here?” This site will hopefully be about my experiences as a “Papa”, personal things, and of course work related stuff. Now for the more specific details about me. I work for LSG Sky Chefs as a Weblogic/Java developer. I also am responsible for the HR/Payroll systems.I am a Muscle Car nut and have a 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo sitting in my garage waiting on getting a new engine, paint job, interior, etc……I know HTML, Java, Javascript, JSP, ASP, ASPX, Visual Basic 6, Visual Basic .NET, PLSQL, COBAL, PHP, and UNIX Scripting.  Right now I am working on Javascript/AJAX coding.I am one of 8 children.(Yes from the same parents) 4 boys and 4 girls.

I will keep updating this when I can think of more things to put here.
