So yesterday I gave Avery a manicure. I thought she would be excited to do something fun and girlie but this is what she thought of it....

When she woke up and saw what I had done this is how she felt.......

I think the real reason that she was so tuckered out was all of the reindeer chasing she did earlier in the day!

Last nigt the Schroders put on an awesome Nativity performance at their house. We had a blast hanging out with their family and all of our pals. Christmas time is so much fun. We are excited to have a sweet baby for Christmas this year. (Little Avery is the bundle inside all of the blankets).

Here are some pics of Avery and her buddies. She is over a month now and such a doll. We just can't get enough of her. As for me, my leg is slowly getting better. I still have to use my stylish walker but I am slowly improving with the help of a great physical therapist. Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!

Avery Christine McDonald made it to the world! She was born October 26th at 3:22 am. She was 20 inches long and 7 lbs 13 ounces. We are finally home from the hospital and are really enjoying our baby girl! It has been a wild roller coaster for me but the baby is perfect. In a nut shell I had to stay in the hospital for 9 days. 5 of those days were spent in the ICU which was horrible. I had a ton of different complications that would take too long to explain but now I am home and the only big thing bugging me is the fact that my right leg is partially paralyzed and so I cannot walk on my own only with the help of my walker. I will have to give you more of an update later gotta run......... just wanted to post some pictures of the little one.

We are home!!!! We finally got to come home after 3 days!! Sunday morning around 5:45 we got a super loud knock on our door telling us to pack a bag and get down to the field house. We took off right away grabbing hardly anything. We wanted to get out before we got stuck on campus... We went down to my parents house for the day and headed to Jeanette's house to spend the night closer to the hospital. Lucky that we left my parents house since they ended up having to evacuate too. (crazy). We are very lucky and blessed to have a place to come home to now. It was no fun being nomadic especially with only PJs and being 9 months prego. Here are a couple pics we took yesterday when we were trying to pass the time away waiting for PCH to open. Note: The reason Scott doesn't look so happy is because the waves and conditions were perfect and his board was stuck at our place...

I have been blessed times 100 to have sooo many sweet friends in my life. The past few weeks my very kind friends have thrown me fabulous baby showers. My good friends here at Pepperdine Jessica, Kym and Taylor threw a beautiful baby shower for me. Down in Orange County my sister and Jane Larsen had a super fun party for me and this past week my two friends Becca and Andrea hosted a very gorgeous shower for me at the Schroder's beach house. After all of these parties we are going to have one adorably dressed little doll. How fun!
So I haven't blogged in a super long time which I know is so very boring. I left my laptop down at my parents house a few weeks ago and just now got it back. Life for us is going great! Only 2 and a half weeks until our little one is due. Crazy crazy crazy. I decided to put these pictures into a slide show since so much has happened since I last blogged.....We celebrated our 5 year anniversary a few weeks ago and went to see Cirque du Soleil's show Corteo which was very cool. My family came up to visit us in Malibu and Scott's family came down to visit us from St. George! We also celebrated my 26th Bday. Life is good. I will do some more catching up later:)

My very sweet friends at work put together a beautiful shower/going away party for Brooke and I (Brooke is also pregnant and due about 6 weeks after me). It was at Chez Mimi in Brentwood and was just gorgeous. We had so much fun.

This weekend we went to the BYU-UCLA football game at the Rosebowl. Besides the 2+ hours it took us to get there....... we had a good time. We saw a ton of friends
and actually were lucky enough to be on the shady side of the stadium.
I was nervous about sitting through a long game in the heat but it turned out to be
a really fantastic night.

Last weekend we went out to the river. It was so nice and sunny. We enjoyed the good company and warm water.
We went for one last family trip before everyone headed back to school. Chris headed off to BYU Hawaii, Tyler went back to BYU and Dani is starting dental hygeine school in Provo.
The river is always a perfect summer vacation. Even when you can't do anything but relax:)

This weekend was Scott's last weekend before starting his final year of lawschool. Crazy how the years fly by. We went down to San Clemente to visit our friend Tyler who just returned home from 2 years in England. We celebrated with some Martinellis.
After visiting Tyler we decided to have a party. For no particular reason besides the fact that we were in the mood for a good piece of cake.
Abe, Merivale and I had a little too much fun with the cake decorating. We even frosted Hayley's plastic pony to put on top (which she was not very happy about). We found it quite hilarious.Looks like Merivale and I ate way too much cake:)
I think our big party tuckered Noelle out. She was a little sleepy eyed at the end. Too much fun.

Last weekend Dani, Scott and I went to the Orange County Fair. We couldn't miss it since we have been going for years. We wanted to see the bull riding but walked up as it was ending. I was very sad about this especially since I have a secret love for watching PBR on T.V. We did get to see some awesome acrobats from Africa, a pretty funny hypnotist show and tried to win a stuffed animal (which I failed miserably at). Scott won a cute little dolphin by breaking a baseball with a plate. Carnival games are so hilarious.
We couldn't resist the photo opportunity that these cut outs gave to us.
People watching is our favorite fair activity.......................besides taking the pictures in the black and white photo booths. Scott and I have the black and white pictures starting back from the fair in 1998.

We had a great time... although my almost 7 month pregnant self was tired from all of the standing at the end of the night.

Last weekend two of our favorite couples left Pepperdine. They graduated......
Congrats to Matt and Ryan!

George Page won't be the same without you:(

The Dodger Game
We went to see the Dodgers play the Mets. Of course it wasn't comaprable to watching the Angels, but it was fun being at a different ball park. Minus the 2 + hours it took to get there.....Scott's class buddies Amanda and Chris were there...
We took this one for Jeff.................
Scott and Matt went to sit in some closer seats
while Whitney and I enjoyed being up high
The Dodgers won!
