The Park...

The week before Spring Break, Brian surprised us with a fun family day - trip to the park. It was Eliana's first time to the park since she started walking...

Eliana's Winter ONE-derland

We had Eliana's Birthday party the end of February...the theme, Winter One-derland! :) Doesn't quite go with our new blog background, but that's okay. We had a blast planning it - PTL for after Christmas Sales - We got most our decor then. :) We didn't have anything super major...just a sweet time celebrating our Precious Gift!

(Ya'll forgive my lack of creativity with these pictures...one day I'm going to do collages to save ya'll time scrolling down!)

The Table with Treats...







The Birthday Girl - waiting for guests


Granny came early to help with the finishing touches

A few of the guests...



Cake Time!!! - for those of you who don't know us well, I'm very guarded on the amount of sugar my girls havce -- mainly before their 1st birthdays... Since this was technically after her big day, Eliana had had some, but it was still pretty new...





"This is ok for me to have mommy?!"





"Mmmmmm"

She just kept eating and eating...(she didn't eat all that cake, some of it fell into her chair.)


Opening presents...



  
Sharing the new toy already


After the party...and after dinner...Eliana was given a cupcake - but without the frosting!



It was such a blessing to celebrate Eliana with some of our Friends & Family! We missed you if you couldn't make it that day! "Thank you Lord for Eliana!!"

Mid-February...

These pictures were just too cute to not take & post...

This is how Eliana most often sleeps - face down. Her being in the corner made me giggle...



Smiling Sisters - Aspen really was trying to be sweet, I promise.


 Aspen figured out she can play in the pantry...and Eliana discovered that is where Aspen goes...


Tickle, Tickle!!

Hey Friends!!

Okay ya'll, I know it's been far to quiet on here the past month...really since December! I can explain why, but, then it might just seem like excuses... I will say though, I've been working very hard trying to completely 2 family photobooks - one for our 4th year, and one for Eliana's 1st year... Plus, the time I usually reserve for blogging, has been given to ministry the past 2 months since we've been needing to help a family at our church. It's been a profitable time, but, I've missed keeping ya'll up to date on the the daily Minutes of us Moreno's! 

We don't really have anything new to share, just keeping on doing the daily things our Lord sends our way... We are in the process of preparing for a Garage Sale though... Hoping/Praying to raise extra money to put towards vacation this year!! YAY!! So -- If any of you have any items you want to donate to the cause, I will gladly come pick it up from you. Seriously! I'm collecting all kinds of stuff. :)

I just finished uploading all my pictures....Goodness! I didn't realize how much I have to post!! Ya'll better hang on...there will probably be a flood of posts coming soon... Stay tuned! 


Happy Smilies to tied you over until I can do some real blogging!

Baby Shower & Birthday Party

We had a welcoming party for Baby A Allen...she's here now, but wasn't for the shower! I somehow only got a cake picture...my camera was then placed in Brian's pocket...never to be seen again til afterwards. :(


We hadn't planned, but were invited to celebrate another niece's 1/2 birthday at the gym that night. It was so much fun, and Aspen truly had a blast with all her cousins! Thank you for including us!

Helping Aspen learn... 


And Jump..


Eliana was happy to stick close to snuggly arms...

The Foam Pit...

Eliana was not a fan.


Nanny with Aspen...


...and Eliana...

The rope swing...note to self..not a smart thing to do with a pinched chest nerve...Brian was calling the chiropractor the following week... 

Aspen's turn...



There's one more picture...but it's on my phone!!! Roni set up a photobooth, and our family picture turned out so cute! Thank ya'll for a fun, family night!
