This tradition started many years ago. Like a lot of girls who grew-up in Georgia, I remember several trips to BabyLand General as a child. If you’re still confused, BabyLand General is where Cabbage Patch Kids are
made BORN. (Yes, if you haven’t been before, the babies are, actually, ‘born‘ out of a cabbage patch… with a nurse… and an IV.)
For Rayna’s 4th birthday this year, my mom took the day off of work and took Rayna to pick-out her very own Cabbage Patch doll.
With thousands of Cabbage Patch babies and kids all around us, we thought Rayna would have a hard time. Surprisingly, she choose her baby pretty quickly!
Introducing… “Flower Rayna Martin“
You can’t go to North Georgia without stopping at all the local shop for homemade goodies. On our list was chocolate, turtles, grits and dips.
Lately, everyone has been telling my sister and I how much we look alike. When I walked into Chick-fi-a last week, someone grabbed the door for me and said, “Hello, Hannah’s-sister.” Just tonight, Hannah was checking-out at a store and the lady asked, “Do you have a sister?” It happens even MORE with children! Hannah has had MANY kids, either my clients or kids in my Sunday School class, see her and tell their parents, “There’s Miss Christy!”
After I took this picture of Hannah, I really saw what others were talking about. Do you see it?!?!
Oh Christy, these are just precious. How amazing that Rayna got to do that! Way too much fun. Natty got her first doll for her bday, too. She LOOOVES Rosey-Leela so much.
and you and Hannah could be twins.
I totally see it! Both of you are beautiful! Great pictures… looked like a fun day.
Yes, yall look alike! And you BOTH look like your MAMA! 🙂 Good thing she’s a pretty lady! HA!
Ok, and it cracks me up that Rayna picked a little black baby. Too cute! When i picked mine, i picked a boy baby with a blonde afro. How DO we make our choices as kids, anyways?!
yes! you do look alike!! 🙂

my MIL let the girls pick out any baby there… and Bella picked a huge rottweiler. 🙂
What gorgeous pictures!! I have such a beautiful daughter-in-law!! I just love the picture you took Christy!! Rayna looks like she had such a great time choosing her baby! What fun!
ya’ll are all so pretty and so are your babies and mom!
Growing up my sister’s always teased me because we didn’t look anything alike. They said I was adopted and they got me from the cabbage patch at Babyland General. haha Great pics of Miss Rayna and your mom.
