Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

This weekend we celebrated Preston's first Thanksgiving and Christmas with my family. We went to the lakehouse and had a wonderful time with family. Preston did great on the road trip! Thanksgiving morning we celebrated Preston's first Christmas. Riley and Kaylin helped him open all of his wonderful gifts. It was so much fun! Preston quickly fell asleep after all the excitement and then everyone else opened their gifts. That afternoon we enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner! Preston even got a small taste of sweet potatoes and peanut butter pie! I'm convinced this kiddo likes about everything he eats. =) After a yummy dinner and some fun games we all set in to watch the Aggies beat the Longhorms WHOOP! What a game and a great way to end a fun day. It was lots of fun having Preston around this Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for including our families, friends, good jobs and everyone's health, but I have to admit that I could not be more thankful for lil Preston! He is truly a blessing from above and we are so very grateful to have him in our life!

Thanksgiving #1

We had Thanksgiving this weekend with Stephen's family. It was Preston's first Thanksgiving celebration. He has no idea how thankful we are that we were blessed with him this year! He truly gives us so much to be thankful for! We enjoyed the day at Stephen's parents house eating delicious food, playing Yahtzee, throwing football passes, playing with Preston and watching the Aggies beat Nebraska! Gig em Ags!! It was a fantastic day with family!

Happy Birthday Steph!

Last week we celebrated Steph's 40th birthday! She had a couple of celebrations, one with some good friends of hers and another with family. We had lots of fun both evenings. The first night we went to Blue Goose in Frisco and celebrated like she was turning 21 with shots around the table. The next night we had a lovely dinner at Brios and went back to her house for gifts and cake with the family. Lot's of fun and we're all looking forward to another great year for Steph!

Yay Daddy!

Stephen recently decided to leave the banking industry and make a move to Corporate America. He got a new job with Torchmark which is only 5 minutes from our house (literally down the street). His last day at North Dallas Bank will be Tuesday and he starts at Torchmark the Monday after Thanksgiving. Although Stephen will miss the wonderful people at NDBT, we feel truly blessed that he was given this opportunity and are excited for the new chapter ahead. Preston and I got to make our first poster together for daddy to congratulate him.

Last weekend Preston got to meet a couple of his Great Aunts and cousins. Mr. Mota's two sisters Aunt Gloria and Aunt Yolanda came in town with cousin Jennifer and her daughter Eleanor. We all got to spend some good time together relaxing, playing with Preston and being entertained by Stephen and Stephanie and their recent guitar skills. Preston definitely didn't starve for any attention!
