Future TV Stars!


So, my Sister in law Cathy has a nephew (Matt) who works for BYU TV. He is filming families in different parts of the United States for a new ad on BYU TV called "This is the place". Well, because of Cathy we are the family that represents the Newport Beach Temple. What did we have to do to become so famous?!? Well, we showed up at 3:00 p.m. sat by the fountain and told jokes to one another as Matt filmed us. Never mind that my eyes are probably closed the entire time because the sun was blasting us in the face. Anyone who knows me knows that I live for my sunglasses! Anyway, after our "joke" session we walked around casually with the kids and just pretended Matt was not there. It was very quick and the kids were pretty good for it all! So look for us to be in an "intersticial" between programs on BYU TV- the ads should start running around General Conference time. As a disclaimer- he filmed 99 other families throughout the US- so maybe we will get cut. Matt says we will definetly be a part of it, but we will wait and see....

Thanks Cathy for the referral! We had a good time at the Temple, then we went over to Fashion Island for some dinner and a tour of the Habitat for Humanity Playhouses! All in all a great day!

Hey! That sounds like so much fun! I'm so jealous I've always wanted to be on TV some how or another. I tried to be on the news one time well they recorded me but I wasn't on the actual news that night so it was a bust! And then I tried to be on the news when there was the national egg roll. But who knows if I was actually on there or not. But it was fun chasing down the cameras trying to be on there. lol! :) I'll have to call home and tell them to record this show! So when I come home for Christmas break I can watch it.
