A truly adorable video clip of Daxton trying to get his legs under him and stand up turned annoying with Shay turning it into a life lesson instead of just enjoying the moment. Shay, please, hush and just show the kids being cute.

HAHA… sometime I wonder if he ever gets sick of the sound of his own voice!

I think the vlogs need a good balance of both, cute shots of the kids, and updates from Shay and Collette. But I do agree the “life lessons” are getting a little too much for me these days. But I sort of get it… they made it… they worked hard and got everything they wanted. So; in Shay’s mind that gives him a voice/right to preach at us and teach us how to make it too. Even though 90% of the crap he says is just a mediocre copy of another man’s genius. He is not an original, he is just good at remembering quotes.

I am really happy they seem to be putting down roots in Idaho/new home. They are investing alot of money and time, so I imagine this is their forever home and will become a compound type property… I know alot of viewers have issues with the money they are spending, but I really dont. The house is big and beautiful and Im glad they are spending money on things that will promote the kids being outside rather than huge TVs and video games. (Though Im sure that stuffs coming…) Todays vlog really gives an idea of exactly how HUGE that house is. Guess Collette can fill all those rooms up with babies!

 

^ This!

 

I agree. I don't have any issue with them spending their money, and I am happy to see them putting down roots and giving the kids a real place to call home instead of moving back and forth every few years, or into a new rental every few months.

 

I also think there is probably going to be more then just one more baby… they said "one more" after Brock too if I am not mistaken.

I think they don't know what they want, but Shay says he's done, Colette wants another. They'll probably have another, I think it's mostly because of what happened to Colette's mother where she couldn't have all the kids she wanted and Colette knows she's blessed to have no pregnancy issues and wants to have as many as she reasonably can. Nothing like 19 kids and counting of course. To me 6 kids isn't crazy, I have a sister who has 6 so that's probably why. I feel awful when people let their jealously take over the fact they have their dream home though, I'm insanely jealous of their home, it's GORGEOUS, but I'll never be one to leave them a hate comment on success.

Anyone seen that? Shay had an alcohol problem? whaaat?

First I ever heard!

I wonder, when… and if there was actually a problem? You know like how they dug themselves out from under a mountain of debt, and later we all find out it was really like one small credit card and a home loan.

A lot of people are pointing out that the kids don't look healthy. Gavin is slimming down though, I think his weight problem was just because of the fact they ate fast food a lot when he was younger, and being the first kid, they were a little lost at what could happen. In early vlogs you see them frequently at McDonald's and now I can't name the last time they went. Someone the other day said Avia is "skinny fat", but Emmi and Brock seem fine to me.

What is skinny fat?

All the kids look healthy to me, Gavins father and both uncles were (some still are) big and so is his Grandmother, so its understandable he would have weight issues. He should be very proud of himself for his accomplishments.

Ughhh I have a feeling that his alcoholism was probably just that he liked to drink sometimes (which is naughty, naughty when you are a Mormon) and he prayed and sought help through the church because God fixes all rolleyes. I really hope I am wrong, but as someone who is in recovery that bullshit pisses me off. Addiction is a disease, not a character flaw. This is of course wild speculation, but based on how they define and approach every other "problem" in their life, my prediction stands. If Shay is truly a recovering alcoholic, I hope that he addresses the recovery process responsibly  

Skinny fat is when you are skinny, but not because you work out or are in shape.

If you have ever seen a photo of the "starving children in Africa", where they are very skinny but have a big stomach, that's the best example I have. I think Gavin looks great comparatively now, I wish he was shown more credit for the no sugar, and how well he seems to be doing in football. I agree though, they all look healthy to me as well, but once I see the comments sometimes I can't unsee what others say angry

Ahh yeah that's the word, totally slipped my mind my bad. He got a kindle I think. I just saw the vlog today where you can hear some of Colette's family's Christmas album, they're such a different vibe than Shay's family I was kind of shocked.

I understand that they are in between houses, are traveling all over, and are shuttling kids to school and practice, etc., but HOLY COW do these people eat out often. One of the basic steps to eating healthier is making meals at home.

I get that their lives are crazy, but having a hectic day then going out to eat at 8 at night, and then putting the kids to bed at 10 is ridiculous. They really need to make a schedule for themselves and stick to it. 

And they need to swallow their pride and hire help. At least someone to do the laundry/cleaning or whatnot. Enough already.

It sounds stupid, but I really wish I could sit down with them and be like "LOOK. Time to make a game plan, guys. Stop be so la la la about everything. You have the means to pull it together, so do it."

They should have done the following:

- Started their house renovations way earlier

- Hired a team interior designers to help with the design process, to choose tiles, carpets, flooring, furniture, etc.

- Focused on the inside THEN the outside. It seems like Shay was really putting the fire to the outside work being done, when he should have had an army of people getting the house itself ready.

- Hired someone to help with the cleaning/the organization of all of their stuff

- Taken the summer to keep/trash/donate all of their stuff

- Sat down and taken the time to plan out the year

 

This is a mess of a post but watching their videos is like watching an unwound ball of yarn get more and more tangled every day.
