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."

Halloween 2012

We had a lot of fun this Halloween season! It felt like we celebrated for 2 weeks straight. There are so many fun activities for kids this time of year! One of our favorite places to visit this time of year is the Pumpkin Farm. It is so much fun! They have a great petting zoo including longhorns, sheep and goats, a fun hayride, pumpkins everywhere, a cute hay maze, great photo opps and hot dogs! Preston had a lot of fun playing at the pumpkin farm!

Another fun tradition of ours is the pumpkin carving! This year we decided not to buy one of the fancy kits, but decided to do it the old fashioned way and carve on our own. We had fun designing our own pumpkin as Preston told us that he should have triangle eyes and a circle nose. ;) It was pretty cute!

Halloween night was a lot of fun too! We have a great block full of great kiddos. We all got together, grilled hot dogs, the guys played football and the kids played! Everyone had a lot of fun! The kids also had a pinata that they kicked off their trick-or-treat bags with lots of fun treats! Trick-or-treating was a good time. Preston was excited to get the candy, but was also a little tired and ready to go home. I think the big kids dressed as scary clowns frightened him a bit about mid-way through and he was ready to head home. He got plenty of treats though and was a cute little dragon this year!
