23.... && Christmas Time && Wedding Bells

Brady turned 23 in November!!! We celebrated his and Brittney's birthday at Classic Skating. Man oh man, I love classic skating! I started off with legit roller skates and I could not handle them.. I switched and rented real roller BLADES then all was well! Avery fell asleep on the drive down and slept through the entire thing!!! We sang, opened presents, ate cup cakes, and laugh/talked the night away while little Avery slept like a rock. She woke up for one last circle around the rink with Dad for his birthday! 

I made Brady a MOUNTAIN DEW birthday cake!

Brittney & Brady blowing out the candles :]

Brady & I leaving the country on our way to CANCUN!!!

Me & Brady being beach bums! The water was perfect temperature and the weather was perfect.. i think i will have to make a separate blog post with all of out trip pictures and stuff.. love our little second honeymoon.. just the two of us!

We had so awesome Family Photos done by Adrienne Danielle Photography! 
She did an AMAZING job! Here are a few of my favorites!
 Check out more of her stuff @
Thanks Adrienne!! I love them!!

{Lister Family 2012}


One of our Christmas traditions! We went with the Sheffield's and "Grammy Auger" 
It was so fun! They had all the different Nativities scenes, which upon approaching I said
"Look at the natives!" Which i continued to be teased the rest of the night.. oh well it was pretty funny.. :]

Avery got spoiled this year for Christmas, actually we all got spoiled!
Avery got a dolly stroller/high chair 5 piece set from Santa
A Minney Mouse push car from Grandma & Grandpa Lister
Toy table from Aunt Mindi & Uncle Dan
A small wagon with a big monkey from Audree
Christmas jammies & cash from Grammie and Grandpa Auger
To name a few!
Brady got me a iPad 3!!! Clothes, towels, and perfume! {i'm totally him}
I got Brady two guns and some bullets, a few other small things
Together we got a ridiculously large 70 inch TV {it seemed huge when we brought it home.. now it just seems normal..}

Avery was not Santa's biggest fan.. to say the least! We tried twice and both times big crocodile tears came out and she wanted OFF! However, once safely in Mama's arms she would give him a high 5, and bump fists! Oh well, there is always next year!

 Jaxon got a new Dog House Tent! He loves it! He always want to be right next to the sliding door anyways!
Of course Daddy & Avery needed to test it before giving it to Jaxon! Those two are so cute together! Always playing!! {Love them}

 Avery & Taylor on Christmas Eve!! Look at these cute looking kids!! 


Avery loves, loves, loves, loves {did i mention LOVES} Bath time! She is a little fish! She about dies when it is time to get out!

Avery is quite the {TODDLER}! She is so smart! I think we are officially off night time bottles, almost done with binkies, and working on talking & Sign language! She amazes me more and more everyday and i feel so privileged to be Her Mama! 


It is official folks!! Derick Taylor and {My sister} Brielle Auger are... ENGAGED!!! I'm so so happy for them! They are getting married April 4th!! Can not wait!!! It is going to be EPIC! Love you guys!!!


Thanks for stopping by... and getting through the entire post.. you deserve a prize or something ! :]

MISSING: Our Blog..

I can NOT believe that i haven't blogged since September.. Well actually I can. OOPS! Well, as usual life has been a little crazy.. but that is not a good excuse! Hopefully one day I will be really good at remembering to blog and do it more frequently..!
Life hasn't changed much here, except Avery! She is changing everyday scratch that, she changes every SECOND! I could probably go on for hours about Avery, but for everyone sanity I will not {I'm just one proud Mama}. Instead, I will give everyone a short list of Avery's new "Skills"
-Walking & Running
-Climbing up & down stairs
-Getting into every cupboard, closet, & DISHWASHER she can
-Words she can SAY: Mama, Dada, Doggie, Jaxon {Our dog's name}
-Animal Sounds she can say: {Dog: woof} {Cow: moo}
-Words she can Sign: More, Please, Food, Dad, Mom and Drink.
-Dancing to music or to nothing :]
-NINE teeth {including 2 molars}
-Body parts she can point to or AKA stick her finger in: Ear, Nose, and Bellybutton
-She can now shake her head for NO and nod for YES.. not sure if i like this..
And last but certainly not least..
-She can give the BEST little squishy face CRUSTIES {she gives you a crusty the laughs, or if you give her one she will do it back and then laugh!} so incredibly funny!! But now i can't give her the stink eye when she is being bad.. she just laughs at me.

To catch up on the rest i think it is best done with photos and SHORT captions.

Since my last blog post Avery also turned ONE year old!
We took Avery to the Zoo for the first time on her Birthday
 We had a blast during Avery's first birthday party and she did too!
Kam turned 29 with a Mustache Bash!
We went to Vegas for Brady's work trip {Me and Avery hung by the POOL}
 We went camping & hunting with Brady's family and Lil' Brooke got her first deer!
Avery playing Peek-a-Boo with me while we watched for Deer.
Avery went to the doctor for her 1 year check up.. Happy before, not so happy after. Still cute.
Three little piggies played soccer together for SoCcErWeEn
The Girls @ the Halloween party
Avery loves pumpkins & the Fall
I went to Gardner Village for the FIRST time 
{Avery with a pumpkin decoration there}
Avery & Audree took there first bath together, funniest thing EVER to watch!
Grandma Dee Dee celebrated her 90th Birthday! {4 generation photo}
Went to dinner at the Olive Garden with the family and the Girls watched Baby Einstein and ate snacks! They loved sitting next to each other! {So glad that they are BEST friends}
Brady & Brittney celebrated their 23rd and 28th birthdays a little early this year! {My mom forgot how old they were turning and bought the wrong number candles so they each only got one.. it is so fun to tease my mama}

Well thanks for reading! I will keep on the forever path of trying to blog more often so I don't end up with these forever long posts..

Just two more really cute photos.. I can not resist this little gal..
 Avery is such a big girl. She follows me everywhere, i turned around and snapped this picture really fast as we were crossing the street.. {love my little SHADOW}.
  And Avery ADORES Brother. She loves going into his room and hanging out! He came out to say hi and she immediately gave him a big hug! So cute!

Okay, I'm done for reals this time! Thanks for stopping by! :]

{Downata Hot Springs}

For Labor Day weekend this year we went on a last minute camping trip with my family.
We went up to Downata Hot Springs in Idaho. It was so fun! I definitely think we should go there again! It was Avery & Audree's first camping trip! They both did pretty good. Avery loved all the rocks and picked up almost every one she saw and smiled real big and showed us her cool find! It was really neat to see her experience things for the first time. I think we all take the little things for granite, and a lot of the time forget to stop and smell the roses or in Avery's case admire the rocks. It amazes me how much i learn from her every day.
On our way up there we drove through Malad, Idaho and stopped to play the LOTTERY! 
We bought one super Lotto ticket, and 5 dollar tickets and i WON!!! $25 :] i hope the luck continues and we can will MILLIONS with our lotto ticket!!  

Well at the Hot Springs we went swimming all day and silly me i left my camera/phone in the trailer {far, far away for water}. My dad did take some pictures so maybe i will have to steal some of his to post on here. We got the girls their own floating seats and they loved it. We even got Avery to go down one of the baby slides {brady caught her at the bottom}. They had a small splash pad for the kids and Avery seem to like it more than the other splash pads we have gone to in the past, i think because it wasn't as busy, and it was warm water coming up! She even would stand all by herself and reach out to the water with a huge smile! It was cool to see her standing there all by herself {i'm sure it won't be long till i wish she would not RUN all over the place}
After swimming all day Brady ended up holding both Avery and Audree while we were trying get dinner ready it was super cute! Audree LOVE Brady! 
The girls were so cute together! Avery is ready to play with Audree, but i don't think Audree is quite ready to play as much as Avery wants her to.. The girls ended up having matching PJ's {no planning on me and brit's part} They looked so cute so we had to get a picture of them together.
Happy matching girls!! 
How ever Avery thinks it is so fun to pull out Audree's binky and put it back in.. Audree does not find this fun.. not one bit..
This is Avery playing her game..

 This is the result... Mad Audree!!! haha one of the funniest photos of Miss Audree ever!

Our camping trip was s super success, Avery had a little hard time sleeping, but it was well worth it! Just a few more pictures of our outing!!

 Walking around the camp ground with Grandpa Auger!
 Nap time with Grandpa!
Bye everyone! Thanks for reading the blog! Till our next adventure..
P.S. 17 days till Avery is ONE...
