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 2015

This year we didn't have a family theme, instead Preston decided he and daddy were going to be Army guys and since Kelsey wanted to be Minnie Mouse, Preston thought mommy should be Minnie too. So there you have it, we were Army guys and Minnie Mouse. We had lots of fun in the weeks leading up to Halloween as well. We had a Halloween party at our house which the kids LOVED! We played fun games like Punch the Pumpkin, Donut on the string, pumpkin bowling, Paint a pumpkin, Halloween BINGO and a sensory table! All of the kids had a great time and I think the adults did too!

For Halloween Mimi and Papa came over for some fun trick-or-treating time! We also met up with our neighbors Gara, Clayton, Pierce and Lillie Grace. The kids had a blast together! The boys really knew what to do this year, there was no hesitation! The girls were a little shy in the beginning, but after they realized there was candy involved they jumped out of that wagon pretty quick! We made it over to Aunt Steph and Uncle Gene's and took Vivi with us to a few houses too. It was a fun Halloween!
