Just tryin' to stay cool!
|The twins invited us over to go slip 'n' slidin last week! McKenzie had a ball :-)|
|Lauren is quite the slip 'n' slide all-star!|
|Lauren, Dylan, Hannah and Lynn enjoyed cuddling with Macy. awwww, she's so lucky to have such sweet neighbors!|
|As you can see Dylan is just smitten' by her :-)|
The Cooke cousins came over to play yesterday, as their momma had a busy day of fire fighten' and rescue callin'. Not a minute of shut eye did she get last night, so she was able to go home and take a little nap while Brook and Ally played here.
|It was a nice (actually kind of chilly morning), so we hung out in the front yard.|
|Chilling in the Adirondack chair.|
|Macy and Ally join in the chalk fun.|
Macy says "hey, where's my chalk"? "Mom, Kenzie won't share!"
Gotta also LOVE impromptu Grandpa visits!
|She's so loved :-)|
Cousin Heidi's wedding!
|Pretty sure McKenzie thinks that her cousin's Ashy and Autumn are the COOLEST! Check out the look of admiration.|
|Dad, Macy, Grandma Harnisch and cousin Harrison. oh and check out Kenzie in the backround. She's sneaking more chocolate kisses.|
|running around with Cousin Mason|

What? You don't know who Ella B. Bella is?? McKenzie sure does! I made friends with Ella's mommy at Heidi's Bachelorette Party a couple weeks ago. We really hit it off, not only because we were the sober ones (nursing mommas), but we also happened to have a million things in common with each other. We both have 3 sisters, we've got the journalism thing in common, we have 2 daughters, we are on the Dave Ramsey financial plan...oh and Leslie published her first children's book a few months ago...something I would LOVE to do myself someday.
Check out her website http://www.lesliemeans.com/ and get your very own copy of Ella B. Bella and the Magic Pink Shoes today!
|Leslie is a very talented author, and as you can see, these illustrations are ADORABLE! very captivating to my 3 year old.|
We got the Ella B. Bella book in the mail last week and McKenzie just LOVES it. It is soo cute. We read it several times a day. McKenzie was super excited to get to meet Ella in person this past weekend. hehe :-)
|Leslie and her now famous Ella :-)|
So there...now you know...I am newly inspired...I would LOVE to someday, perhaps, write a children's book of my own. Who know's maybe there's a "Little Miss Macy" book series on the horizon. :-) Wouldn't be for a while, but, hey, a girl can dream can't she??
Anyone know a publisher and good illustrator?
