On Fox21: ‘Party of 16’

A local TV news station Fox21 did a 2 minute spot on our family last night. They filmed a couple weeks ago for about two hours, and the spots they grabbed seem to accurately capture life in the Jeub home.

What do you think? Post your comment below.

This has been an exciting week. On Monday Wendy spoke for a homeschool group in Castle Rock. We’re looking forward to booking her for more speeches. Her Love in the House message is powerful. Perhaps she can come to your town? See our speakers page.

Last night was the Colorado Caucus, making national news with Rick Santorum’s upset over Mitt Romney. We loved getting together with our neighbors to speak and listen to politics. On the grassroots side of things, Cynthia ran for county delegate. There were 13 candidates running for 10 slots. Cynthia came in 2nd place, just 1 vote behind 1st place. Woohoo, go Cynthia!

We left the caucus early to run over to a friend’s home who has cable. Niki Weirich, the news anchor, did a great job editing two hours of film down to a sweet two minutes. She was kind enough to post the video on YouTube before she left work so you could enjoy it this morning.

It isn’t in the video above, but Niki promoted our book signing on the news. If you can make it to Monument on Saturday, we’d love to see you there. Here are details:

  • Book Signing by Chris & Wendy Jeub
  • The Love Shop (downtown Monument gift shop)
  • Saturday, February 11, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon
  • 251 Front Street, Monument, Colorado 80132
  • Google Map and Directions

Wow, what a week. And it’s only Wednesday! Hope to see you Saturday.

    I was looking forward to the book signing while I was in Denver, but then I realized the soonest I would arrive would be 1pm. Our whole family will be in Denver for RMC in March.  Perhaps we will get a chance to say hi then.

    Great video!  Great family!

    Hi Chris and Wendy,
                                   What a great snapshot of life at your house!
    Did the voiceover lady say “Duggards” instead of Duggars?
    I am so pleased about Rick Santorum’s success in Colorado. He also won Missouri and Minnesota. Great news!

      I guess she did add a “d” after their name. I didn’t notice that. That wouldn’t be the first time the Duggars names were pronounced that way.

    Hope you enjoyed the piece! I had a great time visiting the Jeub Family home. It was hard to squeeze everything into 2 minutes! :)

      Niki, you were great! I told ya you would have trouble fitting it all in. We will definitely stay in touch.

  • Vickie in ID

    Loved the video. Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait til my family is as large as yours :) Wish I lived in CO or was visiting there about now. I have a couple of your books already. Love them. Thanks.

    Loved the video!

    Only 18 eggs for breakfast?  No wonder you guys are so trim!

    • mrscindeed

      We go through 12 eggs in a morning with mom (me) and five kids.  18 eggs seemed low, but then I saw the sausage (or something) in the eggs and that would sure make it go further… if my kids liked it… :(

    Niki wrote an accompanying piece. I like it. It shares a bit more of our faith that didn’t end up in the final video edits. See http://www.coloradoconnection.com/news/story.aspx?id=717322#.TzP0t-POx40

    I thought it was very well done.  I would love to see your piece that was done I think on TLC about the same time as the Heppners and Ardnts.  Do you have it for sale?  My kids would love to see it again some were too little to even remember it, we enjoy your blog, we have been blessed with a total of 8 children and have received much encouragement and great advice over the years and also through your books!!
