Jon and Kate Plus 8!

Do you love The Gosselin Family as much as I do? I have been addicted to watching their show (Jon and Kate Plus 8 on TLC) ever since I saw their first special. I DVR it every week and have watched every episode...more than once! For the few people in America that have not seen it, Jon and Kate have twin girls and sextuplets (3 girls and 3 boys!) I have such a great respect for this family and admire them greatly for the way they raise their children. They truly inspire me! Whenever I'm having a tough day with the boys, I just think about Jon and Kate and remember that I will get through it!

I have been anxiously awaiting the November issue of Good Housekeeping to hit the stands because the Gosselins are gracing the cover! Isn't it cute? I thought I knew as much as I could about them but I was wrong!

I learned that they just published a book titled "Multiple Blessings."


Guess what I hope Bryce and Drew get me for Christmas this year!

Hint, Hint! It's only $10 at walmart.com

HI THERE,
I MUST SAY I TOO WAS ADDICTED TO JON AND KATE PLUS EIGHT. I WAS ALL ABOUT HOW THEY HAD A BIG FAMILY AND WERE ALWAYS DOING FAMILY ACTIVITIES, UNTIL I DISCOVERED THERE SCANDAL GOING ON. I MUST SAY I DO STILL WATCH THE SHOW JUST TO SEE WHAT ELSE HAPPENS. I HAVE READ THAT THE SHOW IS HAVING ALOT OF NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE CHILDREN BUT THEY REFUSE TO QUIT FILMING. ALSO, THAT THE EPISODE WHERE THEY WERE GOING ON VACATION TO NC AND STOPPED IN VIRGINIA TO LOOK AT PROPERTY WAS A PLOT TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK THEY WERE REALLY GOING TO BUY A HOUSE WHEN THEY HAD SUPPOSEDLY ALREADY PURCHASED LAND IN NC AND ARE HAVING AN 8,000 SQ FOOT HOME BUILT AND FURNISHED FOR FREE. ON ONE OF THEIR EPISODES THEY WERE ASKED ABOUT WHEN THEY WERE GOING TO MOVE AND KATE REPLIES BY SAYING"KEEP WATCHING BIG THINGS ARE COMING". ALSO I THOUGHT IT WAS PRETTY DIRTY ABOUT HOW THEY DID AUNT JODI WHEN SHE WAS OFFERED A CONTRACT FROM THE SHOW BECAUSE SHE HELPED WITH THE CHILDREN SO MUCH AND KATE SAID "NO WAY, NOBODY MAKES MONEY OFF MY FAMILY", AND APPARENTLY THIS IS THE REASON YOU DON'T SEE AUNT JODI ANYMORE. KATE IS BEAUTIFUL BUT HER WAYS ARE TERRIBLE. IS ALL OF THIS GOOSIP OR IS IT TRUE? I GUESS THATS WHY I KEEP WATCHING, TRYING TO PIECE IT ALL TOGETHER.

I thought about you when I saw my GH in the mail a couple of weeks ago! (Yes, I subscribe . . .I'm OLD) When I saw they had a book coming out I really thought to myself, "I hope Jimmy gets that for Karen for Christmas!! She would LOVE that!" LOL!

I love this show too ! There are a couple of things that bother me about it ! The way Kate talks to John. She says that is just the way they communicate, but to me it is very disrespectful ! I have noticed a change in her this last year, maybe more of a focus on materialism ! But I wish I had some of her confidence ! And Mady bothers me a great deal I cringe when I see her go and pull the hair or slap one of the little one. But I can't stop watching it. It's addicting. I am curious to see the new house ! Most people I know who have dealt with infertility are so greatfull and feel so blessed when they have children it does not seem to bother them how many children they have they are just so happy to have a family. Her complaining all the time seems to me the kids are more of a burden to her than a blessing. I have been watching the new show with the Duggars 17 kid's and counting . Love it ! See the diffrence between the two mother's ! Can't help but wonder if there is a reason TLC put that show on right after John & Kate !

Hey there friend...I am catching up on blogs this morning. I saw a box set of this show when I was at Barnes & Noble and thought of you.
Thanks for checking in yesterday. The shower was wonderful and I so appreciate your help. I sent out some pics this morning on snapfish, so hopefully you will get to see it.
Have an awesome day!

hey karen!! I would be interested in reading the book, but I can not stand Kate and don't enjoy that show. I did when it first came on, but like the other posters I've read too many negative things about it and stopped watching since.
