My Nieces

Now I know that I am very biased, but I have been told by people outside of my family that I have the cutest nieces in the world...yes the world. I agree. My brother and sister have a daughter. Not together, but with their respective wife and husband. They have the cutest personalities. My whole family is kind of spread out over four different states, so I don't get to see them nearly enough.
I am able to see Makenzie, my brother's daughter, much more because they are at least within driving distance. We have always had a great time when we see each other, but for some reason I end up playing dress up with her a lot. Maybe it's because she's fun to play with, or I hate to say no to her, or my dad never let me feel pretty growing up. Here are a few of the results of our playtime:


Now Aly, my sister's daughter, has been much harder to win over. She was never a fan of me until I visited them one week last year. She came up to me, looked up, and said, "You wanna play in my chichen?" I have to say, I do not speak fluent 2 year old, so I had to look to my sister for translation. My sister said "She wants you to play in her kitchen". So we played in Aly's "chichen", eating plastic eggs and pizza and she has liked me ever since then. Aly is quite the girly girl. She lives in her princess outfits and tutus. Here we are this past Christmas:

So funny, Jeff! "My brother and sister have a daughter..." That made me laugh outloud. :)
