  • (Christmas music)
  • 00:01:03.110 --> 00:01:04.170
  • - So, the final result picture, I love it
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:39.120
  • because it's centered around Demi and Dakota.
  • 00:01:39.120 --> 00:01:41.190
  • Clearly our lives have been taken over by them,
  • 00:01:41.190 --> 00:01:44.180
  • but we love them so much and they're so cute.
  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:47.060
  • They're just so, oh, you just squeeze 'em.
  • 00:01:47.060 --> 00:01:49.250
  • - It was really special to us
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:51.000
  • because now the girls are old enough
  • 00:01:51.000 --> 00:01:52.200
  • to really laugh and have fun and enjoy
  • 00:01:52.200 --> 00:01:55.260
  • what we're doing.
  • 00:01:55.260 --> 00:01:57.100
  • - We all have on like coats and scarves and everything.
  • 00:01:57.130 --> 00:02:01.020
  • Kevin is bald head with no jacket.
  • 00:02:01.220 --> 00:02:05.050
  • Excuse my child.
  • 00:02:05.170 --> 00:02:06.230
  • - First I'm trying to find out why Kevin
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:09.220
  • is in the front.
  • 00:02:09.220 --> 00:02:10.260
  • That's my first question.
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:13.180
  • - Yes.
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:15.010
  • - Bald head, no hat, no coat.
  • 00:02:15.010 --> 00:02:16.060
  • That's how light skinned people do it.
  • 00:02:16.120 --> 00:02:17.240
  • - We look like we ruined the picture, don't we?
  • 00:02:17.240 --> 00:02:19.040
  • Me, you and the kids.
  • 00:02:19.180 --> 00:02:21.020
  • - Oh, yeah.
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:22.190
  • - I'm all the way up front. - Cuz you all way up front.
  • 00:02:22.190 --> 00:02:23.080
  • (laughing)
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:24.130
  • - I don't even know how that happened.
  • 00:02:24.130 --> 00:02:25.180
  • - I really didn't have anything to do
  • 00:02:25.180 --> 00:02:26.150
  • with picking this picture.
  • 00:02:26.150 --> 00:02:27.210
  • I just want you to know that because
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:29.030
  • if I had picked the picture I would be in the front
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:31.000
  • and I would have put Kevin to the back.
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:33.110
  • - In this picture, I mean, it's perfect
  • 00:02:33.160 --> 00:02:35.250
  • because like we're all here, you know?
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:38.160
  • It was cold, Kevin was trying to be cute,
  • 00:02:38.160 --> 00:02:40.100
  • but it was freezing this day.
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:42.280
  • You see we all have on coats
  • 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:44.090
  • and kind of like my dad's shoulders are here,
  • 00:02:44.090 --> 00:02:46.040
  • but Kevin, I don't even know
  • 00:02:46.040 --> 00:02:47.150
  • how he got up here in the front.
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:49.010
  • Like, who is he?
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:50.040
  • - I'm a rebel man. (laughing)
  • 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:51.100
  • I don't need no coat.
  • 00:02:52.150 --> 00:02:53.220
  • - That was pretty interesting to me
  • 00:02:53.220 --> 00:02:54.250
  • after I looked at it I was like,
  • 00:02:54.250 --> 00:02:56.100
  • "Wait a minute, he don't realize it's cold outside."
  • 00:02:56.100 --> 00:02:58.270
  • - He is an addition to the family.
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:01.070
  • He should have been in the back.
  • 00:03:01.070 --> 00:03:02.240
  • But no really, I love this because
  • 00:03:02.260 --> 00:03:04.160
  • it really shows that the next generation
  • 00:03:04.160 --> 00:03:06.220
  • should be the ones that we're pushing
  • 00:03:06.220 --> 00:03:09.090
  • to the front to take the lead
  • 00:03:09.090 --> 00:03:11.090
  • and now we stand off in the back
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:13.160
  • and just look at them prospering, growing.
  • 00:03:13.160 --> 00:03:16.200
  • You know, coming to what God has called them to be.
  • 00:03:16.200 --> 00:03:20.050
  • - That's the transition of life.
  • 00:03:20.080 --> 00:03:22.130
  • You know, you kind of
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:24.100
  • start things and you just move back off the scene
  • 00:03:24.100 --> 00:03:27.140
  • and let the next generation run with it.
  • 00:03:27.140 --> 00:03:30.260
  • I'm so Godly proud of him
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:33.240
  • and his darling wife, what they're doing in life
  • 00:03:33.240 --> 00:03:36.240
  • and as a husband and wife, now father and mother
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:40.260
  • and then a minister of the gospel
  • 00:03:40.260 --> 00:03:43.090
  • doing ministry as well.
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:45.060
  • So it's good to see him up front.
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:48.090
  • We call him, with his bright skinned self. (laughing)
  • 00:03:49.120 --> 00:03:52.030
  • All in the front of the picture,
  • 00:03:53.030 --> 00:03:54.150
  • but it's a great look.
  • 00:03:54.150 --> 00:03:56.170
  • He's a great guy and he's just like my son.
  • 00:03:56.170 --> 00:04:00.160
  • Just like Josh.
  • 00:04:00.160 --> 00:04:01.200
  • So it's a good card.
  • 00:04:02.190 --> 00:04:04.000
  • (Christmas music)
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:05.220
  • - Well, the day starts
  • 00:04:16.040 --> 00:04:17.290
  • and we normally try to get ready really early
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:21.130
  • because it takes me a long time
  • 00:04:21.130 --> 00:04:23.050
  • and then it takes my mom not to very a long time,
  • 00:04:23.050 --> 00:04:26.080
  • but Britney, she comes here dressed,
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:29.160
  • but she comes here with the girls not dressed.
  • 00:04:29.160 --> 00:04:32.170
  • (energetic music)
  • 00:04:32.270 --> 00:04:33.190
  • - Hi, Dee.
  • 00:04:37.180 --> 00:04:39.180
  • I love you.
  • 00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:47.110
  • - (baby talk) I love you.
  • 00:04:48.000 --> 00:04:49.050
  • - Good morning.
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:50.090
  • (baby talk)
  • 00:04:51.090 --> 00:04:52.100
  • - Where are your clothes?
  • 00:04:55.000 --> 00:04:56.090
  • Why you always running around naked?
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:59.010
  • - [Britney] Say, I don't know.
  • 00:04:59.010 --> 00:05:00.160
  • - I was not excited about these Christmas pictures
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:03.150
  • like at all, like ...
  • 00:05:03.150 --> 00:05:05.160
  • I felt like I didn't have any help.
  • 00:05:06.180 --> 00:05:08.160
  • I was trying to do their hair
  • 00:05:09.170 --> 00:05:11.110
  • and get their dresses on.
  • 00:05:11.110 --> 00:05:13.160
  • - Should have been up on the bus early.
  • 00:05:13.270 --> 00:05:15.140
  • - I mean, and roll over you.
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:17.250
  • I'm the driver. - Skid marks.
  • 00:05:17.250 --> 00:05:19.010
  • Come on, man.
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:20.260
  • - I'm just saying.
  • 00:05:20.260 --> 00:05:21.240
  • I need some grease. (echoing)
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:24.150
  • Get the white, bring both.
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:30.180
  • Matter of fact, you should just bring all my bows.
  • 00:05:31.100 --> 00:05:34.010
  • - Gotta go all the way back home
  • 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:39.060
  • for some bow rats and ribbons.
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:41.130
  • - (laughing) Crack up.
  • 00:05:42.040 --> 00:05:43.210
  • I just can't with this.
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:45.060
  • Like you will say, "I forgot the bows and everything."
  • 00:05:45.080 --> 00:05:49.200
  • - That was last year.
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:50.270
  • The bows was last year.
  • 00:05:50.270 --> 00:05:51.270
  • - Okay, the grease.
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:53.150
  • - We're just saying you sent me all the way home
  • 00:05:53.150 --> 00:05:54.160
  • to get bows last year and then
  • 00:05:54.160 --> 00:05:55.210
  • you forgot hair grease this year.
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:56.270
  • - I didn't forget hair grease.
  • 00:05:56.270 --> 00:05:58.110
  • I knew my mother had some, but you couldn't find it.
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:06:00.130
  • - There's some other gel and stuff, but ...
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:02.160
  • - [Britney] Okay, well you should
  • 00:06:02.160 --> 00:06:03.140
  • have brought something like ...
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:04.200
  • - I don't know if there's a certain kind
  • 00:06:04.200 --> 00:06:05.260
  • of gel you want to put in their hair.
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:07.020
  • - [Britney] Okay, bring me anything.
  • 00:06:07.020 --> 00:06:08.070
  • They just need something to lay their hair.
  • 00:06:08.070 --> 00:06:09.080
  • Go, Kevin.
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:10.140
  • - Then he came upstairs without the grease,
  • 00:06:13.190 --> 00:06:17.040
  • but without any kind of grease,
  • 00:06:17.040 --> 00:06:19.270
  • so he comes back up. - Because she asks ...
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.260
  • - I saw like some gel. - for a specific grease.
  • 00:06:21.260 --> 00:06:23.120
  • I saw like some other stuff.
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:24.210
  • - I know there's different kinds of grease.
  • 00:06:24.210 --> 00:06:26.020
  • - Bring anything.
  • 00:06:26.020 --> 00:06:27.110
  • - I know there's different kinds of grease,
  • 00:06:27.110 --> 00:06:28.180
  • like some is thick. - Okay, but you could
  • 00:06:28.180 --> 00:06:29.120
  • have brought anything.
  • 00:06:29.120 --> 00:06:30.190
  • - Some is like a gel, some is more creamy.
  • 00:06:30.190 --> 00:06:32.230
  • - [Kevin] I'm all, you should have brought
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:35.290
  • any kind of gel up there.
  • 00:06:35.290 --> 00:06:37.180
  • As particular as you are when it comes
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:40.150
  • to their hair, you want me to bring up anything.
  • 00:06:40.150 --> 00:06:42.200
  • I'm gonna bring up anything.
  • 00:06:43.110 --> 00:06:44.280
  • See, what do we got here.
  • 00:06:46.060 --> 00:06:47.140
  • See if she want that in their hair, right there.
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:48.230
  • Let's see if she want that.
  • 00:06:48.230 --> 00:06:50.040
  • Like I know there's different kinds,
  • 00:06:51.140 --> 00:06:52.250
  • so if I would have come up.
  • 00:06:52.250 --> 00:06:54.010
  • - You would have came up with something.
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:56.140
  • - She asked for a specific ... - Hey, I didn't see this,
  • 00:06:56.140 --> 00:06:58.040
  • but I saw this, would you like to use it?
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:07:00.280
  • - Okay, then she could have sent me down.
  • 00:07:00.280 --> 00:07:02.050
  • - [Britney] Then I could have said, "No."
  • 00:07:02.050 --> 00:07:03.100
  • - [Kevin] She could have sent me down.
  • 00:07:03.100 --> 00:07:04.150
  • Okay, get this if you don't see it
  • 00:07:04.150 --> 00:07:05.120
  • any kind of grease will do.
  • 00:07:05.120 --> 00:07:06.150
  • You asked me for this grease.
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:08.250
  • I came up and said I didn't see
  • 00:07:08.250 --> 00:07:09.290
  • the grease that you asked for.
  • 00:07:09.290 --> 00:07:11.100
  • I'm smiling, but I'm trying to tell these people.
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:19.250
  • - Because you actually came to me
  • 00:07:19.270 --> 00:07:21.050
  • with this question, but. - [Kevin] Whatever.
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:23.050
  • - Next.
  • 00:07:24.020 --> 00:07:25.080
  • - It was like history repeating itself.
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:26.190
  • They just didn't cooperate this day. (laughing)
  • 00:07:26.190 --> 00:07:28.220
  • The dresses were too small, so like
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:33.030
  • it was unbuttoned on this side, so you couldn't ...
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:35.190
  • - You know, it was ... - [Dakota] Cheese.
  • 00:07:36.000 --> 00:07:37.090
  • - Look, look, we're in the interview.
  • 00:07:37.090 --> 00:07:40.010
  • It was too small and I was trying
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:43.070
  • to get it over her head.
  • 00:07:43.070 --> 00:07:44.190
  • (crying)
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:46.090
  • - I'm trying to save her hair-do.
  • 00:07:46.110 --> 00:07:47.150
  • I'm like, okay.
  • 00:07:48.020 --> 00:07:49.150
  • It's nobody's ...
  • 00:07:49.150 --> 00:07:50.150
  • Chill out.
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:53.060
  • It messed her hair all up
  • 00:07:54.030 --> 00:07:55.240
  • and she started screaming.
  • 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:57.060
  • (crying)
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:07:58.180
  • - You all stop beating that baby.
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:01.170
  • - It was pretty interesting
  • 00:08:01.270 --> 00:08:03.060
  • and she kept crying, they were sleepy
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:05.200
  • and it was the life.
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:07.270
  • - Wow, this has been a very interesting day
  • 00:08:08.000 --> 00:08:10.130
  • because the girls now, the grand kids,
  • 00:08:10.130 --> 00:08:12.170
  • they are coming into their own.
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:14.120
  • They're walking, they're talking
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:16.040
  • and they are just all over the place.
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:18.040
  • So we had the roughest time just trying
  • 00:08:18.040 --> 00:08:21.020
  • to get them ready this morning
  • 00:08:21.020 --> 00:08:22.240
  • while we were trying to get ready ourselves.
  • 00:08:22.240 --> 00:08:24.200
  • Here I went in the room and put on the wrong outfit.
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:27.070
  • Wasn't dressed, you know, wasn't ready
  • 00:08:27.070 --> 00:08:29.140
  • for the pictures and I had to come in there now
  • 00:08:29.140 --> 00:08:31.140
  • and look at Britney and the kids are crying.
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:34.020
  • - My mother was standing there last minute,
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:36.050
  • I just went off on everyone.
  • 00:08:36.050 --> 00:08:38.190
  • - It was different, but yet it was so much fun.
  • 00:08:38.230 --> 00:08:41.200
  • It's like I get to relive my kids
  • 00:08:41.200 --> 00:08:44.040
  • through my grand kids to see
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:45.240
  • that excitement all over again.
  • 00:08:45.240 --> 00:08:47.210
  • - It's fun, and the girls get to get all pretty.
  • 00:08:47.230 --> 00:08:49.240
  • So just seeing them, you know, get dressed up
  • 00:08:49.240 --> 00:08:52.130
  • is kind of fun to kind of hurry up the process here.
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:55.270
  • (Christmas music)
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:08:57.270
  • - The scripture says,
  • 00:09:02.060 --> 00:09:03.130
  • "Oh give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good."
  • 00:09:03.130 --> 00:09:06.220
  • And on this Thanksgiving day,
  • 00:09:06.220 --> 00:09:08.140
  • we want to make sure that all of our partners and friends
  • 00:09:08.140 --> 00:09:11.220

  • This is what it's all about.
  • 00:09:26.030 --> 00:09:27.180
  • Thanking God and thanking one another as a family,
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:31.150

  • (chuckling)
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:45.140
  • Don't stuff yourselves.
  • 00:09:45.140 --> 00:09:46.130
  • - No, eat all the turkey.
  • 00:09:46.130 --> 00:09:47.080
  • (muted chuckle)
  • 00:09:47.080 --> 00:09:48.030

  • (Christmas music)
  • 00:10:05.050 --> 00:10:06.100
  • - You know, when we were growing up
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:14.090
  • my dad really made Christmas time
  • 00:10:14.090 --> 00:10:16.080
  • really, really big and really, really special.
  • 00:10:16.080 --> 00:10:19.070
  • My mom always made sure that we had
  • 00:10:19.070 --> 00:10:21.090
  • everything that we could possibly ever want
  • 00:10:21.090 --> 00:10:24.010
  • you know, for Christmas.
  • 00:10:24.010 --> 00:10:25.200
  • - It seemed like Christmas was
  • 00:10:25.280 --> 00:10:27.230
  • a long time coming, then when we were younger,
  • 00:10:27.230 --> 00:10:31.050
  • but now it's so short,
  • 00:10:31.050 --> 00:10:32.260
  • so I think we should take every moment
  • 00:10:32.260 --> 00:10:35.170
  • to really enjoy Christmas,
  • 00:10:35.170 --> 00:10:38.010
  • which I love so much.
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:39.140
  • - I remember my dad, how he used to go
  • 00:10:39.170 --> 00:10:41.190
  • and purchase all these different types of nuts
  • 00:10:41.190 --> 00:10:44.120
  • and place them on the table
  • 00:10:44.120 --> 00:10:45.270
  • and the tangerines and the different
  • 00:10:45.270 --> 00:10:47.180
  • kinds of candies.
  • 00:10:47.180 --> 00:10:49.020
  • - Christmas was a lot of fun.
  • 00:10:49.050 --> 00:10:50.190
  • We enjoyed Christmas and we would decorate
  • 00:10:51.000 --> 00:10:54.090
  • the tree, my husband would cook gingerbread men
  • 00:10:54.090 --> 00:10:57.140
  • and it was a lot of fun.
  • 00:10:57.140 --> 00:10:59.290
  • - He would just get up early in the morning
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:01.200
  • and fix everybody breakfast
  • 00:11:01.200 --> 00:11:03.110
  • because he loves cooking, my dad.
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:05.230
  • That's something that he does everyday anyway.
  • 00:11:05.230 --> 00:11:08.070
  • My dad, he's just a true blessing
  • 00:11:08.070 --> 00:11:10.140
  • and he loves taking care of his family.
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:12.230
  • - I enjoy doing that.
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:14.090
  • (Christmas music)
  • 00:11:15.200 --> 00:11:16.270
  • - This year I wanted to do something
  • 00:11:18.110 --> 00:11:19.250
  • really, really special for my sister's and brother's
  • 00:11:19.250 --> 00:11:22.230
  • and so I had my parents to take pictures,
  • 00:11:22.230 --> 00:11:25.210
  • you know, on the same day that we were
  • 00:11:25.210 --> 00:11:27.230
  • taking pictures and they were hilarious.
  • 00:11:27.230 --> 00:11:30.230
  • Oh my God, they were so funny.
  • 00:11:30.230 --> 00:11:33.000
  • My mom laughed so hard she was crying.
  • 00:11:33.000 --> 00:11:35.120
  • It was so funny.
  • 00:11:35.120 --> 00:11:36.200
  • - Hey, Dakota, she like me.
  • 00:11:36.220 --> 00:11:38.190
  • (laughing)
  • 00:11:38.190 --> 00:11:39.250
  • - Here's what you're doing.
  • 00:11:42.080 --> 00:11:43.100
  • You're not gonna like it.
  • 00:11:44.130 --> 00:11:45.180
  • Stop, stop for a second.
  • 00:11:46.010 --> 00:11:47.180
  • You're not sweating.
  • 00:11:47.180 --> 00:11:48.250
  • You got tears coming out your eyes.
  • 00:11:48.250 --> 00:11:50.250
  • - [Mom] Jesus, get my eye glasses.
  • 00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:52.190
  • - [DeeDee] You don't need your eye glasses.
  • 00:11:52.190 --> 00:11:54.160
  • You need to (mumbling).
  • 00:11:54.160 --> 00:11:55.230
  • (laughing)
  • 00:11:55.280 --> 00:11:57.040
  • - DeeDee, he stopped beating me on my behind.
  • 00:11:59.030 --> 00:12:01.200
  • - [Kevin] All right, that's what I'm talking about.
  • 00:12:02.040 --> 00:12:04.050
  • Hit that booty for us today.
  • 00:12:05.100 --> 00:12:06.160
  • (laughing)
  • 00:12:06.230 --> 00:12:07.280
  • - Oh man, it's awe inspiring to see
  • 00:12:08.000 --> 00:12:11.290
  • my father-in-law, well I call him Dad.
  • 00:12:11.290 --> 00:12:15.230
  • You know, technically he's my father-in-law,
  • 00:12:15.230 --> 00:12:18.130
  • but he's my dad and to see that guy
  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:21.260
  • after 63 years walking around here like,
  • 00:12:21.260 --> 00:12:24.230
  • "Hey, Doc, I'm gonna tell you what.
  • 00:12:25.290 --> 00:12:28.000
  • "It's going down tonight."
  • 00:12:28.000 --> 00:12:29.150
  • (laughing)
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:30.250
  • Boy, that gives me all kinds of hope.
  • 00:12:32.190 --> 00:12:35.080
  • I love seeing a relationship after 63 years.
  • 00:12:35.080 --> 00:12:40.080
  • My mom and dad as well.
  • 00:12:40.100 --> 00:12:42.000
  • My mom and dad.
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:43.170
  • They're my mom and dad, but the people
  • 00:12:43.170 --> 00:12:46.030
  • that I've come from, they've been married
  • 00:12:46.030 --> 00:12:48.200
  • for 63 years as well and it's just
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:51.180
  • the promises of God being fulfilled.
  • 00:12:51.180 --> 00:12:54.060
  • - It came out really good,
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:55.120
  • so this is a book that I gave them all
  • 00:12:55.120 --> 00:12:57.040
  • on, you know, Christmas day.
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:59.140
  • It really came out really, really special
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:01.230
  • and so I'm excited about, you know,
  • 00:13:01.230 --> 00:13:04.090
  • this thing because I love creating memories.
  • 00:13:04.090 --> 00:13:06.240
  • I love creating things for people to talk about
  • 00:13:06.240 --> 00:13:09.080
  • years down the road, you know, so I was like,
  • 00:13:09.080 --> 00:13:12.150
  • this book, my family will have something
  • 00:13:12.150 --> 00:13:14.040
  • to sit there and talk about
  • 00:13:14.040 --> 00:13:15.160
  • and laugh at the times and the memories
  • 00:13:15.160 --> 00:13:17.220
  • that my parents have created with us
  • 00:13:17.220 --> 00:13:19.180
  • and also with themselves.
  • 00:13:19.180 --> 00:13:21.090
  • So they're really a blessing,
  • 00:13:21.090 --> 00:13:22.230
  • but my father and my mother,
  • 00:13:22.230 --> 00:13:24.260
  • they crack me up, so it's just a blessing
  • 00:13:24.260 --> 00:13:28.020
  • to have them still in my life.
  • 00:13:28.020 --> 00:13:29.160
  • - They love my grandparents.
  • 00:13:29.250 --> 00:13:31.190
  • Like, they see my mom's mom
  • 00:13:31.190 --> 00:13:34.210
  • and they're like, "Nana."
  • 00:13:34.210 --> 00:13:36.140
  • They see my grandad.
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:38.290
  • They all think he have food because he cook.
  • 00:13:38.290 --> 00:13:41.290
  • But I eat. - They already got that memo.
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:44.170
  • - [Britney] So they play with them
  • 00:13:44.290 --> 00:13:46.150
  • and it's the coolest thing.
  • 00:13:46.150 --> 00:13:48.110
  • (energetic music)
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:52.110
  • - [Josh] Mom, your dog is loose.
  • 00:13:56.200 --> 00:13:58.030
  • - [DeeDee] He was in the cage.
  • 00:13:59.260 --> 00:14:01.110
  • - There's so much in the cage.
  • 00:14:02.020 --> 00:14:03.270
  • - [DeeDee] Take it out.
  • 00:14:04.030 --> 00:14:05.010
  • - You come take it out.
  • 00:14:05.270 --> 00:14:07.250
  • - I have a dog now.
  • 00:14:10.040 --> 00:14:11.060
  • I don't know how I got a dog.
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:13.050
  • The dog just was given to me
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:15.170
  • and I fell in love with him.
  • 00:14:15.170 --> 00:14:17.020
  • He is so cute, he's beautiful.
  • 00:14:17.020 --> 00:14:19.230
  • - They used to fuss at me and tell me,
  • 00:14:19.230 --> 00:14:21.220
  • "You wanted a dog, now you got to take care of it."
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:24.010
  • Now guess what?
  • 00:14:24.010 --> 00:14:25.070
  • They got a dog and guess who's taking
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:26.110
  • care of their dog?
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:27.180
  • - Josh always complains about anything
  • 00:14:29.050 --> 00:14:31.220
  • that we ask him to do.
  • 00:14:31.220 --> 00:14:33.070
  • He is very spoiled.
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:35.100
  • So whatever I can get him to do,
  • 00:14:35.220 --> 00:14:37.190
  • I will get him to do.
  • 00:14:37.190 --> 00:14:39.190
  • I don't need him to take care of my dog.
  • 00:14:39.190 --> 00:14:41.280
  • - Ask him where's he been?
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:43.210
  • Where have you been, Bishop?
  • 00:14:43.210 --> 00:14:44.200
  • Who's house you been at?
  • 00:14:44.200 --> 00:14:46.060
  • I already got five dogs
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:52.180
  • and they don't even need one dog.
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:55.060
  • They could have took one of mine.
  • 00:14:55.060 --> 00:14:56.240
  • If you know me, you know I love dogs,
  • 00:14:57.120 --> 00:14:59.210
  • but this dog here is something else.
  • 00:14:59.210 --> 00:15:02.250
  • I mean, you know, my dogs were rough as puppies,
  • 00:15:03.110 --> 00:15:06.100
  • but this right here, they should name him problem.
  • 00:15:06.100 --> 00:15:10.020
  • (laughing)
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:11.070
  • - You know when you have children
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:13.000
  • you should be able to make them
  • 00:15:13.000 --> 00:15:14.040
  • to do some of your dirty work.
  • 00:15:14.040 --> 00:15:15.190
  • - [Josh] My mother actually went in there
  • 00:15:15.190 --> 00:15:17.140
  • and was taking care of her dog.
  • 00:15:17.140 --> 00:15:18.290
  • She was cleaning up some poop.
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:21.110
  • She cleaned up some poop.
  • 00:15:21.250 --> 00:15:23.060
  • Dr. DeeDee, my mama.
  • 00:15:23.150 --> 00:15:25.080
  • This is a breakthrough.
  • 00:15:25.290 --> 00:15:27.090
  • It's a breakthrough.
  • 00:15:27.090 --> 00:15:28.270
  • - When dogs are able to go to the bathroom
  • 00:15:29.190 --> 00:15:33.080
  • by themselves and when they are able
  • 00:15:33.080 --> 00:15:35.260
  • to go in the refrigerator, I mean,
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:38.150
  • go to the bathroom and like flush the toilet
  • 00:15:38.150 --> 00:15:42.180
  • and go to the refrigerator themselves
  • 00:15:42.180 --> 00:15:45.180
  • I think I would like dogs a little more,
  • 00:15:45.180 --> 00:15:48.140
  • but that's what DeeDee wants.
  • 00:15:48.140 --> 00:15:50.210
  • DeeDee wanted this dog and named him Bishop,
  • 00:15:51.180 --> 00:15:54.060
  • but whatever DeeDee wants, DeeDee gets.
  • 00:15:54.060 --> 00:15:57.100
  • - So I've taken full advantage of that,
  • 00:15:57.270 --> 00:16:00.170
  • but I love the dog.
  • 00:16:00.170 --> 00:16:01.250
  • Ask Mike, he's always trying to kick the dog
  • 00:16:01.250 --> 00:16:04.090
  • out of the house like, "Get rid of this dog."
  • 00:16:04.090 --> 00:16:06.220
  • I don't want to get rid of this dog.
  • 00:16:06.220 --> 00:16:08.060
  • Every time I think about getting rid of him
  • 00:16:08.060 --> 00:16:09.280
  • I get sad and so I love this dog.
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:12.220
  • This dog is just like a replacement
  • 00:16:12.220 --> 00:16:14.240
  • for a child sometimes. (laughing)
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:17.050
  • (energetic music)
  • 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:24.280
  • - [Samuel] This is just an awesome opportunity
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:49.290
  • to serve the community.
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:51.080
  • To be around people, whether we can
  • 00:16:51.080 --> 00:16:54.130
  • sow into and love up on
  • 00:16:54.130 --> 00:16:56.290
  • and give them an opportunity,
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:16:58.210
  • an encounter with God that will cause
  • 00:16:58.210 --> 00:17:00.200
  • an unforgettable experience.
  • 00:17:00.200 --> 00:17:02.170
  • - I love this event.
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:04.110
  • This is my third year of coming.
  • 00:17:04.110 --> 00:17:06.130
  • - And it was nice for the school to come in
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:08.090
  • and sing some hymns and religious songs,
  • 00:17:08.090 --> 00:17:12.280
  • which you don't get to hear,
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:14.130
  • but only so often from the schools especially.
  • 00:17:14.130 --> 00:17:17.190
  • I thought it was wonderful
  • 00:17:17.270 --> 00:17:19.120
  • and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • 00:17:19.120 --> 00:17:21.040
  • (inspiring music)
  • 00:17:25.170 --> 00:17:26.280
  • - I really want to thank Spirit of Faith
  • 00:17:43.050 --> 00:17:45.160
  • and the wonderful donations
  • 00:17:45.160 --> 00:17:47.170
  • that you have made to our food pantry.
  • 00:17:47.170 --> 00:17:49.250
  • While we're doing about 250 families
  • 00:17:49.250 --> 00:17:52.020
  • for Thanksgiving, that equals 1000 adults
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:55.150
  • and children who will enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving
  • 00:17:55.150 --> 00:17:58.210
  • by the grace of God and your support as well.
  • 00:17:59.030 --> 00:18:01.290
  • (gentle music)
  • 00:18:50.180 --> 00:18:52.010
  • - This year by the church donating
  • 00:19:20.150 --> 00:19:24.090
  • this Thanksgiving basket has really been
  • 00:19:24.090 --> 00:19:26.110
  • appreciated by us.
  • 00:19:26.110 --> 00:19:27.260
  • We always appreciate Thanksgiving
  • 00:19:27.260 --> 00:19:30.260
  • and I think this will impact the girls a whole lot
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:33.250
  • just by Thanksgiving completely
  • 00:19:33.250 --> 00:19:36.270
  • and not having ...
  • 00:19:36.270 --> 00:19:38.040
  • Most of them don't have any families to go to,
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:39.250
  • so we are really in that close-knitted community here
  • 00:19:39.250 --> 00:19:43.270
  • and we really appreciate what you guys done.
  • 00:19:43.270 --> 00:19:46.010
  • (applause)
  • 00:19:46.110 --> 00:19:47.090
  • - I think that is a good thing
  • 00:19:50.210 --> 00:19:51.260
  • that you guys are doing this for
  • 00:19:51.260 --> 00:19:54.240
  • transitional housing and like homeless people
  • 00:19:54.240 --> 00:19:57.260
  • I think is really good.
  • 00:19:57.260 --> 00:19:59.070
  • I think it's a really good thing
  • 00:19:59.070 --> 00:20:00.070
  • that you are doing.
  • 00:20:00.070 --> 00:20:01.130
  • I'm grateful and I'm thankful, so thank you.
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:04.070
  • - Hi, well here we are here at the
  • 00:20:05.190 --> 00:20:07.190
  • Pratt Street Transitional Home
  • 00:20:07.190 --> 00:20:10.020
  • for ladies with underage children
  • 00:20:10.020 --> 00:20:12.240
  • and you, Spirit of Faith, made it possible
  • 00:20:12.240 --> 00:20:15.110
  • for us to be able to supply them
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:18.040
  • with Thanksgiving dinners.
  • 00:20:18.040 --> 00:20:19.250
  • They were very excited, they were very happy
  • 00:20:19.250 --> 00:20:22.020
  • and again, Dr. Mike and you guys,
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:24.250
  • thank you so much for being a blessing
  • 00:20:24.250 --> 00:20:27.170
  • to these families, happy Thanksgiving.
  • 00:20:27.170 --> 00:20:30.200

  • - Ha, what's up big mama?
  • 00:21:07.260 --> 00:21:09.230
  • Huh, what's up?
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:11.000
  • Demi has a distinctive quality locked in
  • 00:21:11.030 --> 00:21:16.030
  • to her personality or her disposition.
  • 00:21:16.050 --> 00:21:20.240
  • She is very, very witty.
  • 00:21:20.280 --> 00:21:23.240
  • I mean, it's a wisdom that I see
  • 00:21:24.220 --> 00:21:28.150
  • she operates in already in getting to my heart.
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:32.250
  • You know, Demi can get me every time, you know?
  • 00:21:32.250 --> 00:21:37.050
  • Then she's the smallest out of the two, you know?
  • 00:21:37.050 --> 00:21:41.050
  • We're believing God in that area as well.
  • 00:21:41.050 --> 00:21:43.120
  • - With him and her,
  • 00:21:43.120 --> 00:21:44.250
  • she know that she can get anything from him.
  • 00:21:44.250 --> 00:21:48.250
  • That's me, like that was me.
  • 00:21:53.180 --> 00:21:56.210
  • That was my special place in his heart.
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:21:59.150
  • I could use my big eyes to get
  • 00:22:00.110 --> 00:22:02.000
  • what I wanted from him.
  • 00:22:02.000 --> 00:22:03.050
  • Now she has the face, it's like.
  • 00:22:03.090 --> 00:22:05.150
  • - You know, I think Britney, Brelyn and Josh
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:10.020
  • are probably a little jealous of the grand kids.
  • 00:22:10.020 --> 00:22:12.220
  • (laughing)
  • 00:22:12.220 --> 00:22:13.210
  • I love those girls, I do.
  • 00:22:14.290 --> 00:22:17.260
  • I mean, I love my children too,
  • 00:22:17.260 --> 00:22:19.100
  • don't get me wrong,
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:20.050
  • but I love those girls.
  • 00:22:20.050 --> 00:22:21.250
  • I spend so much time.
  • 00:22:21.250 --> 00:22:23.030
  • I'm not I guess the new age grandma
  • 00:22:23.030 --> 00:22:27.090
  • who you know, don't really want to babysit
  • 00:22:27.090 --> 00:22:30.080
  • or keep their grand kids.
  • 00:22:30.080 --> 00:22:32.000
  • I am always with them.
  • 00:22:32.000 --> 00:22:33.170
  • - The girls, first of all, okay.
  • 00:22:33.170 --> 00:22:36.050
  • It's about Demi and my dad,
  • 00:22:36.170 --> 00:22:38.140
  • but the both of them, they like adore him
  • 00:22:38.140 --> 00:22:42.080
  • and I think most people kind of ...
  • 00:22:42.080 --> 00:22:46.110
  • Most people gravitate towards Demi
  • 00:22:47.090 --> 00:22:50.290
  • because she was the smaller one.
  • 00:22:50.290 --> 00:22:54.000
  • She was the one that the doctor said
  • 00:22:54.000 --> 00:22:55.170
  • I should abort and was gonna die
  • 00:22:55.170 --> 00:22:59.020
  • and so on, and so on, and so on.
  • 00:22:59.020 --> 00:23:01.170
  • So I guess people see her like the underdog.
  • 00:23:02.150 --> 00:23:05.170
  • - You know, when you think about
  • 00:23:06.040 --> 00:23:08.040
  • the report initially that Britney received
  • 00:23:09.010 --> 00:23:13.280
  • concerning terminating the babies.
  • 00:23:13.280 --> 00:23:18.000
  • Wow.
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:24.010
  • Wow, um.
  • 00:23:26.200 --> 00:23:28.000
  • Wow.
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:37.170
  • To have them in my life
  • 00:23:40.260 --> 00:23:44.190
  • and to watch the walk of faith
  • 00:23:44.190 --> 00:23:46.120
  • that she embodied during that season.
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:52.280
  • You know, a doctor comes in and tell you
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:55.210
  • to terminate your babies, man.
  • 00:23:55.210 --> 00:23:57.290
  • She was so strong in her faith
  • 00:23:58.250 --> 00:24:03.250
  • where she didn't even bother to tell
  • 00:24:05.000 --> 00:24:08.010
  • her mother or me.
  • 00:24:09.070 --> 00:24:10.170
  • Like Dad, I got this.
  • 00:24:11.250 --> 00:24:13.050
  • You taught me how to walk my faith.
  • 00:24:13.050 --> 00:24:14.230
  • She didn't tell us until the whole thing was done, man
  • 00:24:14.230 --> 00:24:19.230
  • and they're here and to see them walking around
  • 00:24:20.030 --> 00:24:23.060
  • and here in my life, man.
  • 00:24:24.030 --> 00:24:26.010
  • It's a tremendous joy for me.
  • 00:24:26.050 --> 00:24:28.270
  • I mean, it's nothing greater
  • 00:24:28.270 --> 00:24:30.210
  • and to know how the enemy ...
  • 00:24:30.210 --> 00:24:32.270
  • Satan tried to kill my babies, man.
  • 00:24:32.270 --> 00:24:35.000
  • So to know that they're here now
  • 00:24:36.130 --> 00:24:40.120
  • and God, man if they beat or won there,
  • 00:24:40.120 --> 00:24:45.120
  • it's amazing, I shudder to think
  • 00:24:45.280 --> 00:24:48.290
  • what they're gonna be like in life.
  • 00:24:48.290 --> 00:24:51.060
  • You win from the beginning
  • 00:24:51.060 --> 00:24:52.270
  • and they'll win until the end.
  • 00:24:52.270 --> 00:24:54.280
  • (inspirational music)
  • 00:24:58.140 --> 00:24:59.240
  • - You know, everybody knows
  • 00:25:04.010 --> 00:25:05.080
  • that Jesus is the reason for the season.
  • 00:25:05.080 --> 00:25:07.290
  • Totally, I mean because if it had not been
  • 00:25:07.290 --> 00:25:09.290
  • for Jesus we would not be having
  • 00:25:09.290 --> 00:25:11.260
  • or celebrating Christmas day.
  • 00:25:11.260 --> 00:25:13.250
  • So I thank God for Jesus,
  • 00:25:13.250 --> 00:25:16.020
  • but I also thank God for my husband
  • 00:25:16.020 --> 00:25:18.100
  • who have really embraced a whole tradition
  • 00:25:18.100 --> 00:25:21.240
  • of allowing me to give gifts
  • 00:25:21.240 --> 00:25:25.110
  • and to celebrate others because
  • 00:25:25.110 --> 00:25:27.090
  • he's a giver at heart and he's always given to,
  • 00:25:27.090 --> 00:25:30.190
  • you know, people outside of Christmas.
  • 00:25:30.190 --> 00:25:33.150
  • - [Mike] Christmas happens to be
  • 00:25:33.150 --> 00:25:34.260
  • her favorite time of year.
  • 00:25:34.260 --> 00:25:37.280
  • Her very favorite time of year.
  • 00:25:37.280 --> 00:25:39.290
  • I can recall when I had Christmas in April for her.
  • 00:25:39.290 --> 00:25:43.280
  • She went to Australia, she came back
  • 00:25:43.280 --> 00:25:46.050
  • and there I had the entire room set up
  • 00:25:46.050 --> 00:25:49.050
  • with Christmas tree and gifts
  • 00:25:49.050 --> 00:25:50.150
  • and that kind of thing.
  • 00:25:50.150 --> 00:25:51.210
  • That's her time of year, so you know,
  • 00:25:51.210 --> 00:25:53.260
  • enjoying seeing her happy and exuberant
  • 00:25:53.260 --> 00:25:58.070
  • about life and the fulfillment of life
  • 00:25:58.070 --> 00:26:01.140
  • and everything that life can bring.
  • 00:26:01.140 --> 00:26:03.190
  • - So it's a very important time for me.
  • 00:26:03.190 --> 00:26:05.270
  • It's a time for me to create memories
  • 00:26:05.270 --> 00:26:08.020
  • and a time for me to celebrate Christ with my family
  • 00:26:08.020 --> 00:26:10.210
  • and with my husband and so I'm just,
  • 00:26:10.210 --> 00:26:13.100
  • I'm excited about Christmas.
  • 00:26:13.100 --> 00:26:14.250
  • - [Mike] We come together to celebrate
  • 00:26:14.250 --> 00:26:16.140
  • the birth of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
  • 00:26:16.140 --> 00:26:20.000
  • Meaning that this kind of joy can be birthed
  • 00:26:20.000 --> 00:26:24.250
  • in anyone who will receive Jesus Christ as Lord
  • 00:26:24.250 --> 00:26:27.260
  • and they too can have, if you will,
  • 00:26:27.260 --> 00:26:30.180
  • Christmas every single day of their lives.
  • 00:26:30.180 --> 00:26:33.110
  • - [Mike] My prayer and desire is that
  • 00:26:37.110 --> 00:26:39.060
  • every family have the full, original intent
  • 00:26:39.060 --> 00:26:44.060
  • of the plan of God for their family.
  • 00:26:46.220 --> 00:26:51.220
  • God, his original intent was
  • 00:26:51.240 --> 00:26:55.140
  • for him to have extended family in the earth.
  • 00:26:56.250 --> 00:27:00.080
  • He said, "Let us make man.
  • 00:27:01.020 --> 00:27:02.170
  • "Let's make man in our image.
  • 00:27:02.170 --> 00:27:04.260
  • "They'll join this family,
  • 00:27:04.260 --> 00:27:06.240
  • "which is in Heaven, in earth
  • 00:27:06.240 --> 00:27:08.260
  • "and they'll have just what we have in Heaven
  • 00:27:09.090 --> 00:27:12.210
  • "and there'll be days of Heaven in the earth."
  • 00:27:12.210 --> 00:27:15.080
  • So it's my desire and it's my heart
  • 00:27:15.210 --> 00:27:17.200
  • and that's what I share with my family.
  • 00:27:17.200 --> 00:27:19.200
  • That we be the kind of family
  • 00:27:20.140 --> 00:27:22.200
  • that can exemplify the family that God
  • 00:27:22.200 --> 00:27:26.240
  • intended to have in the Heaven and in the earth
  • 00:27:26.240 --> 00:27:30.170
  • and when I see it in my household
  • 00:27:30.170 --> 00:27:34.250
  • I know it's possible for any household.
  • 00:27:34.250 --> 00:27:37.180
  • So that was just like the icing on the cake
  • 00:27:38.130 --> 00:27:40.210
  • and then Bishop comes along
  • 00:27:40.210 --> 00:27:42.120
  • and pulls my pants leg, get that.
  • 00:27:42.120 --> 00:27:46.010
  • (bells ringing)
  • 00:27:46.250 --> 00:27:48.090
  • - Well, that's a wrap.
  • 00:27:50.160 --> 00:27:51.290
  • It's all over, I know, don't be sad.
  • 00:27:51.290 --> 00:27:54.230
  • No, I told you we were gonna be crazy.
  • 00:27:55.140 --> 00:27:57.230
  • Everything was gonna be exciting.
  • 00:27:57.230 --> 00:27:59.150
  • We had fun, we laughed, we played around
  • 00:27:59.150 --> 00:28:02.030
  • even on the playground.
  • 00:28:02.030 --> 00:28:03.170
  • We did a whole bunch of stuff,
  • 00:28:03.170 --> 00:28:04.200
  • but don't just look at our family.
  • 00:28:04.200 --> 00:28:06.050
  • Go and spend time with your family
  • 00:28:06.050 --> 00:28:07.260
  • and cherish them while they're here
  • 00:28:07.260 --> 00:28:09.180
  • and not when they're gone, you'll be missing them.
  • 00:28:09.180 --> 00:28:11.100
  • Cherish them now and show the love of God
  • 00:28:11.100 --> 00:28:13.110
  • to everyone around you.
  • 00:28:13.110 --> 00:28:14.210
  • Whether it's just a hug or a merry Christmas,
  • 00:28:14.210 --> 00:28:17.100
  • or hey how you doing, people need to know
  • 00:28:17.100 --> 00:28:19.160
  • that God loves them and he cares.
  • 00:28:19.160 --> 00:28:21.160
  • Merry Christmas, see you next time.
  • 00:28:21.160 --> 00:28:23.070
  • - From our family to your family.
  • 00:28:23.240 --> 00:28:25.230
  • (all together) Merry Christmas.
  • 00:28:25.230 --> 00:28:27.100
  • (Christmas music)
  • 00:28:28.230 --> 00:28:30.070
