Both machines are on your home network right?

Just share the folder the documents are in that you need to move.
Then you can move them from Finder.

System Preferences - Sharing - File sharing

Turn it off when you're going to be on other shared networks or password protect it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
