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."

Christmas #1-My Family

The weekend before Christmas my brother, Shelly, their kids and my mom all came to our house to celebrate Christmas! It was the first time I've hosted my family at our house, so I loved it! Preston always enjoys having his cousins around and Kelsey is getting to where she loves playing with them too. We woke up Saturday morning and opened presents as if it were Christmas morning. Then we stuffed ourselves silly with turkey, dressing and all the trimmings. It was a delicious meal and I loved sharing it with my family. After we ate, we relaxed, decorated cookies, played some games and watched the kids play. Drew, Shelly, Steve and I made it a late night with more games and a late night visit from the neighbors for even more fun. Sunday morning came too early, but we had to get a move on because our fantastic elves delivered tickets for us all to go to ICE at the Gaylord. Unfortunately, our visit was cut short because my big boy started feeling bad, so we missed out on ICE and came home for some much needed rest. It was a wonderful Christmas with my family. Love them all and I'm so thankful for every chance we get to spend with one another.
