As if December isn’t crazy enough…umm…the Steece fam will be on TV…
Yep, you read that correctly.
Its insane, I know…but we had a lot of fun doing it and I’m SO glad that I can finally tell my blogger buddies all about it!
What are the details?
Texas Multi Mamas airing on the WE channel, December 27 at 8/7p CST. A series about how six moms of multiples (2 twin moms, 2 triplet moms, and 2 quad moms) face the challenges of every day life and lean on each other for support.

(A nice little tid bit about this picture…they wanted me to make Casey laugh, so I peered over Teryn and said, “Oh hey girrrrl!” Nice. creepy Suz! LOL)
How did this come about?
Last year, we were approached with a unique opportunity to tell our story. More specifically~ “How do you juggle being a mom to quadruplets, a wife, a nurse, a friend, etc. How do you make it all work?”
After much prayer and conversation, we thought the idea of sharing our life and the beautiful craziness that happens on a daily basis would be a fun, once-in-a-lifetime, experience.
Also~ it was very special to share this adventure with one of my BFF’s! Quad Mom Casey Gerwer and her precious family.

What was filming like?
I had no idea what to expect, but it was a lot of fun. Despite what you might think, a camera crew is NOT living in your house and following you around, watching your every move, at all hours of every day.

It was a series of planned events: play dates, girl’s nights, interviews, etc. Very scheduled and organized.

The kids had a blast and got to know and love the crew as well.

That’s a wrap! We had an awesome crew. Love them.

What am I most excited to see on the television screen?
I am very interested to see the footage of Sav’s last kidney surgery on episode 2 (December 27). We filmed the entire day and I’ve heard that you will not be able to get through that episode without crying. It is really going to hit home- now that Sav is having issues with her kidneys again. (Boooooo)
We do not get to preview any of the footage until you guys do---which is a wee bit nerve-wracking, right?!
What was my favorite part of filming?
All of the fun activities with the kiddos! We had a blast and it will be so neat to see those memories captured on camera forever.
There are already commercials running on the WE channel which is absolutely crazy to see! Completely surreal to see yourself on TV…
I know that some people will watch and some won’t. Some will like the show, others will not- and that is okay! I will still be blogging like I always do. My blog will always be, first and foremost,~ our family journal.
