I am McKenzie and I love you. I have been really good I think. I sleep in my bed all night and I help my mama cook. If you don’t be good, you get rocks…and I don’t want rocks.
Please bring me a zombie doll, play food you can cut, and a Rapunzel dolly with a castle. I saw them in my mama’s computer…so if you have a computer you can look for them there. Mommy and Daddy aren’t getting anything for Christmas. They don’t play with toys, just me.
I live a little bit far away in a brown house on a road. This year we might get on an airplane. Please call my mama on her cell phone and ask her if we are going, because I don’t know. Her phone number is 892-6541-23565.
I saw you at the mall shopping with your wife. I am going to see you there soon at your house at the mall. I love you Santa!
-Kenzie's Letter to Santa, written by her teacher and dictated by herself. And yes, all of this is very true (Including seeing Santa shopping wiht his wife!) I'm still crying, I love this little girl!

When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces that went skipping about,that was the beginning of fairies.
We have been way busy lately with school. Classes are all going well and that is pretty much all we have to report! I can't believe sometimes that I get paid to draw with a bunch of kids all day! Anywho, we got Kenzie this photo shoot last weekend at the mall. It was pretty cute, I have to admit I am dissappointed with some of the pictures and especially the lighting, but I am tweaking them in photoshop so they aren't so bad. These are unaltered, but still pretty darn cute. Enjoy!

just a little treat for you. This is a trailer for Andrew and Alexis's wedding video being made soon. It's pretty cute, and it has McKenzie in it so of course it's REALLY cute! Sorry I've been gone awhile, school starts on Monday and I'm losing my head a little! Pictures and updates to come.

I was able to spend my birthday with my family for the first time in 9 years so it was pretty fun. I'm 26 now, pretty scary, I'm almost to the last 20s, AHHHHH!!! We got to go look for agates on the beach and found several, and we had a fantastic strawberry cheesecake that my sister Jessica made for me.
We helped my mom weed the garden the day before we flew home and Kenzie just loved it.
For the 4th of July we had a great barbeque and got to see Fireworks on the river. McKenzie loved Jessica's bird Louie and thought it was so cool when he was on her head!
When we got home on Wednesday night I had this beautiful room divider in my entryway from Paul's parents. (A room separating apparatus from colonial times, for those of you who watch Friends, ha ha!!)
My parents bought me this gorgeous Renaissance dress for me to run around and act like a dork in at this year's Texas Renaissance Festival in the Fall. I also got to go buy lots of natural stone jewelry at this awesome bead store we found off of the highway near North Bend, OR.

Last weekend after Andrew's wedding we went to the Portland Zoo (Pictures coming later!) and the Rose Garden which is a huge garden with roses that have been planted since the early 1900s. It is really pretty and we had a lot of fun. We got to run around with our family and Andrew's friend Brandon who lived across the street from us growing up.
A loaf of bread and butter too is what we truly need, a pleasant walk, a pleasant talk, of cabbages and kings!!
We went Friday for a drive up the coast to Florence and it was a lot of fun. We found a little shop on the side of the road that has all these natural stones, beads, and charms for necklaces. I went back today for a second trip cause it was so much fun!! We got to go to the beach and get our feet wet (It was very cold!) and Kenzie tried to make a castle. We then went to eat at a cute little restuarant on the docks and look at all the boats.
