Big, Big, BIG News!!!

In addition to driving nearly 10,000 miles, attending three weddings, visiting countless family members, and braving multiple theme parks, we did something else this summer that I am finally allowed to talk about.....

...drum roll, please...

...we filmed a couple of specials for TV! (Did I mention that this summer was CRAZY?!)

I am excited to announce that our special, called "Texas Quints" will air Monday, October 11th at on TLC. Here in Austin it will air at 9 pm. In Phoenix, it airs at 8 pm, so check your local listings. There will be two half-hour episodes that will air back-to-back. Here are the descriptions from the TLC website:

Episode 1: Birthday Madness
The Wilkinson's plan a party to celebrate the Quints' third birthday but bad weather could put a damper on everything. The Quints go wild when Jayson tries babysitting solo. Rachelle fears her cake and Jayson's petting zoo could both be major disasters.

Episode 2: Road Tripping
A road trip to grandma's house tests everyone's patience. Rachelle has a close scrape in the van and Jayson accidentally leaves her stranded at the salon with the cranky Quints. Later, the rest of the family finds out how much they can take.


We are anxious to watch the shows and see how everything came together! It was a lot of fun (and a lot of work!) doing the filming. Overall it was a great experience...one that created a lot of fun memories for our family.

I can't wait! I've been lurking in your blog for some time now - ever since I copied your method of storing clothes in a dresser sideways, remember that post?

The funniest thing - I DVRd Quints by Choice or whatever it is called, thinking it was your family.. and I even watched 2 episodes, totally confused, as the mom did not look like you, and it took me a few days after to realize, doh! it isn't you guys at all!

Off topic, but once you said how many great grandchildren does your grandmother has and I can't find it anywhere. Could you pleas tell me that again?

I so love your blog and have been a "blog stalker" for awhile now. I am so excited to read about your Big News! I love TLC and shows about multiples and can't wait to get to actually see your little ones as opposed to reading about them. Congratulations! We will definitely be tuning in.
