Mackynzie poked her face out to smile, wearing a gray tee-shirt, a jean skirt, and sandals.

James captioned his group selfie: "Glad I got to see y'all" as the photo came shortly after Josh began his 12-year prison sentence.
The convicted star's wife Anna and their seven children, Mackynzie, Michael, 11, Marcus, nine, Meredith, six, Mason, four, Maryella, two, and Madyson, nine months, have been rarely seen since he was charged as guilty.
Earlier this week, The Sun exclusively revealed that Josh is unable to have conjugal visits with his devoted 34-year-old wife.
According to the Bureau of Federal Prisons website, conjugal visitation is "not permitted within any BOP facility.”

Josh is limited to just four hours of visits a month, though more can be requested.
According to BOP, "handshakes, hugs, and kisses (in good taste)" are allowed at the beginning and end of a visit.
The Sun previously reported he will serve his child pornography sentence at FCI Seagoville in Dallas, Texas.
Anna should have no problem following the dress code, as the modest dresser is banned from wearing short skirts and dresses, crop tops, low necklines, and more revealing clothing.
The facility is low-security and houses 1,751 inmates in its detention center and satellite camp, according to the Bureau of Federal Prisons.
Seagoville has a Sex Offender Management Program (SOMP) and in 2018 it was estimated that around 40% of the inmates there were sex offenders.
Josh, 34, was found guilty of possessing and receiving child pornography in December and was sentenced to 151 months in prison in May.
Anna has stood by her husband, as she was in attendance at every court hearing.
According to The Sun's court reporter, Josh appeared stoic as he received his sentence, which also includes $50,100 in fines.
As he read his decision, the judge called Josh's crimes "the sickest of the sick" to the packed courtroom.
He then said to Josh: "You have done some very bad things. But in your life as a whole, you've done good things… The true test of a man's character is what a man does when no one is watching."
Referring to Josh's insistence that he's innocent, the judge continued: "I find it aggravating about the lack of responsibility."
Judge Brooks recommended Josh participate in the Bureau of Prison's sex offender treatment program.
In the molestation police report, Jim Bob told authorities his son was sent to a Christian counseling program where he did “manual labor and had counseling.”

The father of seven filed to appeal the sentence.
