We just found out we're pregnant with our second child (due october 2010!) I'm super excited (and only a little sick!)
We found out on January 13th after many crazy days....
We've already picked out our names! If it's a girl, her name will be LUCIA "LUCY" LINNEA RAY and if it's a boy his name will be JACK VAN RAY. So excited! I'll post some new pictures up soon! Yay!

DAD, the Omelet King; a poem


Once upon a warm winter night
There was a man named The Omelet King
And the kitchen was in sight
And all in the house began to sing

Because he, the omelet king
Makes the most amazing omeletes
You've ever tasted or seen
Leaving you with no regrets

So after toiling endlessly
for hours on end
He unleashed his majesty
Upon the land

From Ham to Avacados to Olives
He cooked and he slaved
And then he called us
And the day was saved

With thanks and mild mercy
Because even though it was worth it
In a food coma, I am slipping......


Some fun Photos

Just wanted to share some new photos with you :) Hope you like em
Just a quick update: Stefan's movie went well, today is the last day of filming. If you have a facebook, make sure to join the fan page for "Ship in a Bottle" so you can see photos and updates!
Cece has been really explorative lately. The family walks the property every day, and she loves to go and be the ring leader! If anyone even puts a toe off the path, she'll go "HEY! NO! GET BACK HERE!" Its really sweet of her. She loves to go with the whole family.
We got to make a homemade gingerbread house the other day, and even though the walls did NOT wanna stay...we eventually got them to. (And when I say we, I mean mom. Thank you mommy!)
We're looking forward to going to Utah/Colorado soon. We'll keep you posted on all ray family updates! Hope you're all enjoying the New Year!
God Bless!

Hooray for 2010!

Warm greetings from us to you this New Year! We hope you have had a great start so far, and many blessings to those trying to keep up with a resolution this year!
Lets start off with our biggest news: Stefan and I are getting married! Well....again. This time we're actually just renewing our vows, but we are also going to have a big ceremony in Utah (that way the Colorado folk can come out too.)
As most of you already know, Stefan and I eloped December 10th, 2006. Well, reserve the day Friday, December 10th 2010 for our "wedding"!! We are super excited, and really hope that you will be able to come out.

Next: Cecelia!
Cecelia had an amazing Christmas. We got to go to San Diego the week before Christmas and celebrate with the Ray family. She got a new Dora bike (which she LOVES) and she got some clothes and a few little toys. She loves to talk and to sing! She loves the CD her cousins Sarah and Chris sent this year, she constantly is asking for "Grinch," as the grinch songs are the first and last on the album. :)
We also got to celebrate Christmas day in Utah this year with my family. I was super happy to be there, even with the snow! We had a full family photo done, which hasn't happened since I lost my two front teeth (yikes.)
Cecelia is a very happy, healthy 2 year old. She's very into exploring, both the world and her boundries (haha) and she loves to try new things. She loves berries, walks, and coloring. And taking care of her baby doll.
New Years Resolutions: I have decided to work out for 30 minutes each day and run as often as possible, and read the entire bible. So far, I've kept up very well with my resolutions! I'm very excited about it and can't wait to see what 2010 brings us.
Stefan also got a roll in an indie film, which, unfortunatly, I can't discuss....but please pray for him for continued blessings. We love him!!
God Bless!
Hope you enjoy the update and photos. Lots and lots of love,
