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 Party

Last weekend we invited a few friends over to have a little Halloween party for the kids> Since Preston is in love with Halloween, he has been looking forward to this for a while now! I planned a couple of little games for the kids and pulled together some Halloween treats. The kids got a chance to wear their costumes which they were all excited about! Kels didn't quite make it into her costume for the party (not enough time to get both kids dressed before people arrived), but be on the lookout for another cute pirate this Halloween!

Pumpkin Patch 2014

Last weekend we made a quick trip over to the Celina Pumpkin Farm. Kris and Kyle were in town with their kids, so they got to go with us. It was quick because we were trying to fit it in between the time Kris and Kyle got in town and the time our Halloween party started, so we had roughly 1 hour to get everything. I have to say that I was pretty impressed with us, we did it! We got in feeding the animals, hayride, hay maze, got our hot dogs, hit up a few photo areas for some photo ops and even managed to pick out some pumpkins. The kids had a great time! Preston wasn't into the pictures very much, but we managed to get a couple of cute ones. I laughed, its near impossible to get a good pic of both of my kids together. They are always cute, but managing to get one of both looking at the camera smiling...impossible! =)
