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."

I hear Wedding Bells!

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Z and Nikki's wedding! Z is Stephen's best friend from college and he was his best man. We had a weekend full of fun festivities! Friday night was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, Saturday the guys played Top Golf and Saturday was the beautiful ceremony and fun celebration at the Belo! Stephen didn't lose the rings, gave a great toast and was the best looking groomsman (I'm not partial at all). I was so proud! We had a great time celebrating Mr. and Mrs. Zannikos! We look forward to many good times to come!

Preston is 11 months old!

Sweet boy!
My handsome boys!
Playing in the grocery cart
Climbing on the sofa
Taking the boat out for a spin
In the drivers seat
Mama, I want more please!
I found my birthday present early!
Snuggle bug
Sweet eyes
My little man
Swing time
Check out my slide
Lovin the outdoors
Nappin with daddy

So unfortunately it's taken me almost a month to post Preston's 11 month pictures, he will be one this weekend (ahhhh, I can't believe it)! He is getting so big! In the last month he:

-Has started walking everywhere and is into everything!
-Continues to learn something new everyday
-Loves playing on his new swingset
-Loves being outside
-Took his first family vacation
-Is eating almost all solids
-Clicks his tongue to call the dogs or his friend rabbit at grandma and grandpas
-Knows the dogs and calls them "dog"
-Drove the boat with daddy for the first time
-Loves his snacks
-Wants to climb everything (he's all boy)
-Mocks us when we tell him "No" he walks away saying, "no, no, no"
-Loves doing pat-a-cake and Itsy Bitsy Spider and is starting to do the gestures

We are truly blessed to have such an awesome son! We love him with all our hearts and everyday is more fun than the last!

Baby Kendall's Shower

A few weeks ago we went to Oklahoma to celebrate some good friends of ours and the extension of their family with their 2nd little girl, baby Kendall! We had a couples shower with lots of little kiddos around. We had a lot of fun catching up with our friends and Preston had a lot of fun catching up with Ashley and Kyle's baby girl Kate! They are so much fun to watch together. Can't wait to lil Kendall to join in the fun!

Dad Mota's Birthday Celebration

I'm pretty behind in my posts, but last month we celebrated my father-in-laws birthday. We had lots of fun! We all went out to dinner at Ernesto's and then went back to their house for gifts, cake, some dancing and more family fun! Preston enjoyed playing in the wrapping paper, reading grandpa's birthday cards and wearing the birthday hat with grandpa! Happy birthday grandpa! Here's to another great year!!
