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."

Preston Meets Santa

We wore him out!
Last night we went to North Park Mall for all of the fun festivities they have going on and to introduce Preston to the REAL Santa! It was so much fun! The mall was decorated so nicely for the holidays with Santa reindeer, trees lit everywhere, gingerbread houses, trains and of course Santa! Preston was such a trooper. He hung in line for about 20 minutes and finally met Santa. He could not have been more happy and excited! We were thrilled with the picture we got!! After visiting Santa we cruised the mall for a while. Preston loved seeing all of the lights and hearing the Christmas music. We also stopped at the train exhibit benefiting the Ronald McDonald house, which was really nice and fun to watch Preston watch the trains go by. We also started a new family tradition...we adopted our first angel. It is so sad to know that there are families out there who cannot celebrate Christmas the way we can, so we decided to start giving back. We hope to adopt a little boy Preston's age every year and make sure he has what he needs to celebrate Christmas. This year we will be adopting a little boy who needs a winter coat. It is a great feeling to be able to give to someone who truly needs it! It was a great evening that really got us in the spirit of Christmas!
