Kate Gosselin, star of the reality TV show Jon & Kate Plus 8, has her hands full when planning the holidays – with 8-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 4-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Alexis, Hannah, Leah and Joel, and she shared her holidays plans, and some tips on saving a little bit of money around the holiday season!
On her plans for Christmas: “We’re just going to continue our Christmas tradition of caroling. And we’ll bake.
On what the kids are asking for: “Well, we have 4-year-olds and I remember this from when Cara and Mady were 4. They would come running and say, ‘Mommy, Mommy, I want this’… and I’ll say, ‘What is it? Where did you hear of that?’ And they’ll say, ‘On TV!’”

On what TV the kids watch: “They’re Disney kids. And to be honest, our show is their favorite thing. They ask to watch it all the time. It’s interesting. It’s like them watching their memories.”
On if the kids, who are usually dressed alike, prefer to dress differently: “They don’t mind either way. At home they open the drawers and dress themselves and you can imagine some of the outfits they come up with. And I don’t fight them any more. I would have fought Maddy and Cara at that age. I did. I’d say, ‘Go back upstairs and change, you’re hurting my eyes.’ But I don’t fight them anymore.
On if the kids know they’re famous: “They don’t understand it. To them, it’s their normal. They’ve been filming since they were 15-months-old and they don’t know any different. And I’ve taught them — and at 4 they understand — that if people are taking pictures, and it bothers you, just say, ‘No, thank you’ and turn your back.”
On if she enjoys doing the show: “The blessings are we get to work from home, we’re there with them. We get to travel. There’s so many experiences that we wouldn’t otherwise have. I feel like it’s making them so well-rounded.”
