Had to post about our day today!  The weather was AMAZING and we headed to the beach to enjoy it.  Yes, we went to the beach on December 29th.  Life is good!

For some reason, the photos are always in reverse order, so here is the end of our day!

Mia running away... 
The hole!  (Mia discovered this on our walk, I looked away for 2 seconds, and she disappeared.  I only had to panic for a minute before her little head popped up!)
The boys had a blast leaping over the occupants of the hole.

Christmas Lights!

Jason had lots of fun designing the lights for our new house!  Isn't it festive?  We are sooooo excited for Christmas!

How many posts can you post in a day?

So, it's been a while since I updated the world on the McDonald news.  As I know you are all breathless with anticipation, I thought you should know there are like 5 new posts along with this one... so go ahead, scroll down and get your fix.

Warning:  if you faint at the sight of blood, close your eyes!
Jarom wanted me to post his gnarly injury, and claim he was attacked by a shark while surfing.  I'm more inclined to think it was a young men's dodgeball injury... you decide.

Thanksgiving in St. George

We LOVE Nethercott Reunions!!  We had a total blast in St. George seeing all of our crazy family!  We had 50 people sitting down for dinner in Jason's brave sister Angie's house.  I think I saw Jarom and Jacob twice the whole time we were there.  C0usins are the best!

Our fam with the sweetest Papa ever!  (along with Nana in the background doing dishes :))
Jason and some of his sibs!
Huge shout outs to Angie for saving me from my roots, and putting up with us bunking at her house.  Also to Cinda for letting half of my brood hide out at her already insanely packed house for the entire trip.  Nethercotts ROCK!

My Hero!

Jarom- you are amazing!! He survived a grueling season of water polo, so to celebrate I am posting the much requested photos of him in his uniform!!!

He even had his own personal cheerleader!
Here is the team!  Love the "wildcats" embroidered on their behinds!
This is Jarom (#10) getting ready to throw the ball for an awesome assist!  Go Wildcats!

Student of the Month!

Way to go, Jase!!!

Jase was chosen by his teacher to be student of the month representing the value "citizenship"!  He looked mighty proud standing up there in front of the whole school!

More Visitors...YAY!!!!

It's been a while, but I had to document our fun visit from the Hofheins fam!  We had loads of fun, and even pawned off our boys on them for a zoo visit... see monkeys below!

Here is our somewhat chilly, but still super fun trip to the beach.  Wendy is still a total babe... and wins the prize for cutest boys ever!
Wendy and Tyler also treated us to the most AMAZING meal ever at a swanky spot in La Jolla called Nine Ten.  The chef is an old friend of Tyler's from Sundance, and totally gave us the royal treatment- be jealous.
