My Favorite Family to Catch Up On...

Thanks to the wonderful creation of DVR, I am able to watch many shows throughout the week. If you were to look through my series recordings you would find a variety of shows that I follow. Every Thursday I tune in to the laugh at the latest antics of the Dunder Mifflin Employees on The Office. And then I flip over to catch up on the lives of the doctors on Grey's Anatomy. And every Sunday I stay up "late" to watch the Walker family on Brothers & Sisters. But my favorite family to watch is the Gosselin Family on Jon and Kate Plus 8!

It's a reality show about the lives of Jon and Kate Gosselin and their 8 kids-- 8 year old twins and 4 year old sextuplets. This family quickly stole my heart after my mom introduced me to the show a little over a year ago. I was intrigued by their daily schedule and how this family held it all together! It probably doesn't hurt that 3 and 4 year olds are my absolute favorite and the little kids happen to be just around that age! Those of you who have heard me talk about this show know that I absolutely adore little Aaden-- I think it's a combination of his little glasses and all of the random facts he knows! (although Leah is giving him a run for his money as my favorite lately!) But all of their kids are so cute and funny. I have been captured by this show!

This past weekend I was at Walmart and saw the book that they recently wrote called Multiple Blessings. I decided to buy a copy--and I sat down and read it all! It's basically just a more in depth look at their story and how they got to where they are. It is a very powerful book and it brought me to tears many times! I really enjoyed it because they were able to go into much more detail about the role that faith has played in their lives. Basically the whole book is about how God has brought them to where they are--the many ways He has provided for them, the lessons He has taught them, and His perfect plan for their family. I highly suggest this book--it was a great read!

Now I am off to finally eat some dinner and tune in to watch Jon & Kate Plus 8!
