Jon and Kate Plus 8

For those of you who aren't familiar with this show on TLC, I'll briefly explain.

Jon met Kate.
Jon and Kate fell in love.
Jon and Kate wanted a family.
Jon and Kate had twins.
Kate wanted 'just one more'.
Jon and Kate had sextuplets.

This has become my new favorite show. I don't have TLC ;( but I got the first 3 seasons at a great price from Discovery Channel, so needless to say I've had some J&K+8 marathons. When Carolyn and I were housesitting, this is what we would find ourselves doing in the evenings. :) Understandably there's complete chaos in their home, but the kids are just so cute!

Knowing my love for the show, Carolyn bought me their first book MULTIPLE BLES8INGS:Surviving to Thriving with Twins and Sextuplets. This was quickly added to my list of books read. It didn't take me long at all to read it. It was really good. It starts with how they met and then takes you along for the ride through the whole process of having the twins and sextuplets. I was thoroughly impressed with how often she attributed everything to God. She often talked about how it was only because of Him that she made it through each day and how she witnessed Him providing for their every need in ways unimaginable. I would definitely recommend this book. I can't wait for her next book to come out, Eight Little Faces.

On the TLC website you can watch full episodes as well as clips of the show.

  1. That was a fun week. I recently watched a TLC episode on how they met. Kate was so cute and innocent. I want to get those DVD's sometime too. I'm glad you liked the book. I may have to borrow it once I'm done with school.
