I wanna be a cowgirl

Bubble Machine

We finally broke out our bubble machine yesterday and it was lots of fun! Both of the girls are sick w/ a stomach virus but we felt like they could use some fresh air so we let them play out on the deck for a little while. Taylor liked the bubbles, but as you can see on Sutton's face, she wasn't too sure about them. I think they will enjoy it more once they are feeling better.
These babies have been sick for the better part of a month now with one thing or's time for them to feel good again. First it was a cold and cough, then the fever virus, then they got some shots, then a stomach virus.

Purple poodle purses

Leopard print and purple poodle purses are all the rage at the Ray house these days!

Dresses from Aunt Vanessa

Aren't these dresses just precious? Aunt Vanessa sent them to the girls when Sarah came to visit last and we just love them. Would it kill my kids to smile when I take pictures?

And if you are wondering, yes we have totally covered up the nice hardwood floors in our den with this oh-so-beautiful smurf-blue flooring. Kinda makes a statement, don't you think? You're all just jealous!

Alone time with my book

Sutton climbed into the toybox last night for a little "alone time" to read her book and as soon as Taylor saw her she just had to get in too. Monkey see, monkey do.

Taylor & her lunchboxes

I bought the girls Tinkerbell lunchboxes for school and they were such a hit that Taylor thinks she'll take them both!

First Day of School

I never thought it would be so hard to get one picture w/ both girls in it without someone crying over something but it seems darn near impossible.
Today was their first day at Mother's Day Out and it went really well. I drove up, the ladies unbuckled them and they held their little arms out for them to pick them up just like they'd known 'em forever. No crying or anything...except for ME!!!
When I picked them up the teachers said that Sutton was the little social butterfly all day. Who would have ever thought that would be the case about 6 months ago when she cried everytime we were in a crowded room? They said they could tell Taylor was teething because she was whiny. She's not normally whiny at all and once we get this 2nd top tooth in I am going to throw a party! I want my mild-mannered, easy-going baby back.
They also said that they thought they were going to adjust to MDO very easily from the way they acted today so I was very glad to hear that...time will tell.

Taylor & her nose

I just had to post this!! She will kill me for taking this when she's 16 but I thought it needed to be documented.


The girls and Clint were all baptized on Sunday at church and we also joined Asbury that day. Believe it or not out of about 30 or so pictures these are the only decent ones! And they aren't so good, are they? You take two babies that are teething during their nap time and expect them to let some strange man pour water on their head and it just doesn't go so well. Not to mention that Taylor had thrown up about 15 minutes before we took these. Actually, they did pretty well during the ceremony but we were not allowed to take pictures until after church and they were none to thrilled by then.

Emily's Visit

Our good friends from Atlanta, Brad, Tiffany and little Emily, came for a visit over the Labor Day weekend and we all had a great time. Sutton and Taylor had not seen Emi since Christmas so I had no idea how they would react to having another baby in the house but they seemed to thoroughly enjoy her being here. Emi and Sutton were inseparable and were hugging and cuddling the whole weekend. Taylor mostly just stole her toys!
