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."

Nana and Kinley Visit and get SNOWED in!

Nana brought Kinley up for Kelsey's birthday party. We were so excited to have both of them here. Little did they know their trip would last a little longer than the weekend! A little ice storm headed our way after Kelsey's party and stuck around for a few days. We had fun! We took the kids out sledding and they had a lot of fun watching movies and playing around the house. Always fun to get cousins together and we always love having NANA! After 5 days they were ready to go home. We were so glad they came!! Hope to see them again soon!

Excited to have Kinley and Nana here!

Kelsey's 1st birthday party

We had Kelsey's first birthday party on the Saturday following her actual birthday. We had about 30 people come to celebrate our little princess. The theme of the party was, "She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes"and I made all of the decorations in pink, gold and lots of sparkles! It was a fun little shindig. This baby girl should feel loved, because she is!! Happy birthday sweet girl, I can't believe how much you've grown! You have blessed our family beyond belief this year! We can't wait to continue watching you grow into the beautiful young lady we know you'll be! We love you Kelsey!

"Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, you've grown so much and come so far!" -unknown
