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."

Kelsey is 10 months old and Preston is 4!

Wow 10 months old already?! Unbelievable! We have had an eventful month, so not a whole lot to post here as most pictures I have this month pertain to a particular event that I will be posting about separately. A few updates on Kelsey... she is standing up on her own without holding on to anything and remaining standing for a few seconds. I think it is only a matter of time until she takes off walking! She still loves playing in the pantry while I'm cooking! This became even more evident as I spent a lot of the holidays in the kitchen! One of my favorite things she is doing now is yawning, very loudly! haha I love hearing her yawn, its as if she wants everyone in the room to know she's getting sleepy! Super cute! She also got baptized which was a very special day for us all (see separate post)! Her brother is still her favorite person, she wants to do everything he is doing and if she can't, she just wants to watch him do it. It's sweet! Preston is continuing to grow into a handsome young man! He's got his wink down, which I'm sure will come in handy when dealing with the girls in years to come. He is going to be such a little knock out! He also had his first Christmas Program. We were so proud of him and the incredible job he did (see separate post). He is really enjoying school. I knew this when he woke up one day and wasn't feeling great and I asked if he felt good enough to go to school and he said, "YES! I can't miss all the fun!" Makes me happy to know he is happy. Life is good, busy, but good! We are so blessed and so grateful for these two beautiful blessings!
