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."

All Aboard The Polar Express

Last weekend we took Preston, Nana, Mimi and Papa to Palestine for a fun evening on the Polar Express. It was such a neat experience! We took a real train to the "North Pole"! We were greeted with super friendly waiters who brought us Christmas candy and hot chocolate. We read along as they read The Polar Express on the ride to the North Pole. We got to see all the elfs in action getting gifts together for the big day, and then we were surprised to have Santa himself jump on board to greet the kids. He also gave Preston the first gift of Christmas, a bell from Santa's sleigh. Santa signed Preston's book which was very cool, he signs his name "Mr. C". On our way back from the North Pole, we all sang Christmas carols and enjoyed the ride. Preston was very excited about the whole evening! He had a blast. I have to say, I think the adults enjoyed it just as much as Preston! We all heard the bell ring, so we must all still believe. What a neat little adventure, amazing to see the magic of Christmas come to life in Preston's eyes! So blessed to able to share this time with Preston and for all of us to be able to share this time during the holidays as a family!
