DINNER STRUGGLE WITH LARGE FAMILY


Welcome Crazy–Keep it Crazy family to our video. Video? Welcome Keep it Crazy to our video. Welcome Keep it Crazy family to our video. Today we’re gonna redo– You’re not– (laughter) Stop! It’s focused. It wasn’t focused. This has to look perfect. Today Keep it Crazy family we are gonna redo the office but first we’re gonna
get some food because I’m starving and I’m hangry. You’re hangry? I’m hangry. I’m scared. I’m hungry-angry. Here’s the office beforehand. So the door in this office kept hitting
the floor and it was scratching it so bad and you can kind of see right here
are the scratches. So Jared came over to help Aaron shave the bottom of the door. So this door, um, when it opens to a
certain point, it starts dragging on the floor. The door is uneven and the floor
is uneven so we’re just gonna take enough of it off so it opens up smoothly.
If you tape this it kind of helps it not split. We’re gonna take this much off.
We’re gonna put the door in and see how it swings. If we need to take more off we’re going to have to pull it back out and do it again. Here we go. Yay! That’s actually good. Can I say it? Sure go ahead.
Wait, what do I say? Say what you just said. Hi guys– hi guys we’re at Dollar
General right now. We’re going to pick our Valentine’s Day cards. Oh my gosh. (laughter) So Brody’s like, “Can I say it? Can I say
it?” And then he’s like (slowly) we want to… You’re so silly Brody. Okay, well we’re going into Dollar General to get their Valentine’s card things for their classes. You know like all– How many
people do you have in your class? 19! I have 20! Alright which one are you guys gonna choose? Toy Story. Toy Story? Oh Toy Story. Cool. Let’s see how many it has in here. 32 that’s perfect. Yeah that’s perfect. Alright Logan did you see any? There’s spider-man, there’s superheroes. You want spider-man instead? Yes! How many? 32. It sounds like, like 2.
Well they’re just cards. No it has 32 in it. I don’t want these. Okay which ones do you want? I don’t any. I don’t these. You don’t want cards? I want candy stuff. Well the candy’s over here. I know. Alright so Brody’s on his 30th box. I’m
just kidding. So he’s gonna get the ones that have a tattoo for your tongue and
a sucker. You have nothing? What are you picking? I pick Sour Patch and they have 25 exchange packs. Why are you talking like that? I finished cleaning the office
today it took me like all day but now I really want to decorate it but the
problem is– Brody or Logan is running into my camera. So the problem is we live
in a really small town and I can’t just like go get office decorations and make
the office all cute because I don’t have many choices. So it might take me a few
days to decorate it I will show you guys when it’s done but I’m at least gonna
look at Dollar General and see if I can find anything fun. Like these cute boxes,
look how cute these are. Well I have a picture on the wall that’s kind of similar to this so I feel like that would be so cute to hide some of the
cords. Look how cute this is. So you put an essential oil on it and it’s like a
diffuser it goes in your office. I need that, huh. Hannah says she needs it in her
room because she has a plant-y room. Walking through all the aisles there
wasn’t a ton of stuff. Found a couple little plants, a couple boxes, but as far
as like hooks and different things that I want on the walls, nothing. So we’ll put
together what we have so far and then over the next few days we’ll finish it. Tonight we’re having enchiladas for dinner. It is one of the kids favorite
ones. I know we say that on a lot of our dinners but usually it’s a few of the
kids favorite and then some of the kids won’t need it at all, this is the case
too. But if at least– how many would you say? At least like six kids eat it, I call it
a favorite. And like the parents– it’s pretty much just two people, Max and Logan. Max and Brody are usually the biggest– Brody will usually whine about it, but
then if you’re like, well if you eat it we’re having this for dessert or we’re
doing this then he’ll be like- oh never mind, I do like it. I think he just says it–
yeah he doesn’t feel like it but it’s different if he wants it. Do you like enchiladas? No. No? Will you eat it if I pay you $10? Yes. I’m just kidding
I’m not paying you to eat a dinner, forget that. So you can see how much better it’s
looking in here. It’s cleaner. Ooo, let’s make it dirtier. But– hey Logan. But
there’s still a long ways to go. So with these boxes, I’m going to cut a
little hole in the back and then hide the charging station so it looks better.
Won’t that be so cool? You just told us where it was. No, it’s not gonna be hiding like hiding from you, it’s just gonna look prettier. So this is where the kids turn their
phones in at night. But some of the kids have been being so good they don’t have
to turn their phones in at night anymore which is a good thing. But Max is
gonna be my assistant here. So I need you to cut a little hole enough for like a
power cord. Like a little square. Are you ready to make out your Valentine’s cards? Rock, paper, scissors who gets to go first. Rock, paper, scissors, shoot. Oh that’s two out of three. Aw, that’s fine. Okay Brody gets to go first.
Let me see one of them. Are they cool? They look like cell phones. Yeah. That’s
so cool. I love you very much. My love burns for you. (laughing) We are stinking cute together. Oh, aren’t those your favorite? Would you
have done those if you were still doing Valentine’s cards? Maybe, maybe. I’m a
professional at taking these apart though. I know. So then after you put your
name in it, see these two little holes? Yes. You punch it out and you stick the little sucker in. I made dinner tonight! I never make dinner but tonight I felt like cooking and I’m gonna start cooking more because I
actually enjoy it. It’s kind of therapeutic. Except for when you don’t
eat my food, you don’t eat my food, you don’t eat my food. Eat it! But look at it, I mean, I don’t– Look how delicious that looks. (whispering) Looks so good! Alex is not happy. Why are you not happy? Because there’s so much wrong with the car that I’m using. And now I can’t drive it. So, some lights started coming on and then we took it to a mechanic today and he said try putting coolant in it. So we put coolant in it and now it’s leaking. It’s having issues. The thing is all the way in the red and I don’t want to blow the engine. So he
can’t drive it till we get it fixed. And he’s not happy because he has to ride a bus tomorrow. I have a blue tongue because Brody gave me one of his suckers. So (sticks out tongue). Isn’t that weird? Valentine’s is on Friday and I want to be able to drive us to school and I want to take Aracely on a date but I can’t do that if we’re just gonna walk everywhere. Aw, sad day. You
can have a date here– No– with all your siblings getting on your nerves, that would be so fun. I’m just kidding. Your siblings, actually you love, but I get you don’t want to do a date here. I get it. Not in a mean way. I know, I know. I was so happy to start driving and now there’s so much wrong with it. Okay positive thoughts. We put positive– (growling) No. We put positive thoughts into the universe and it feeds us positive back
right. I guess. So be like, “Oh the car’s gonna get fixed tomorrow and everything’s great.
Sylvia’s gonna be brand-spanking-new. There you go. Oh yeah, I named my car. Her name’s Sylvia. Oh, I like it. Tomorrow she’s going to be brand-spanking-new. No lights are gonna
come on that’s gonna cause problems. There you go! Positive thinking! Yes.
Alright now, somebody eat because this has been sitting here for 10 minutes and no one’s eating. I just remembered why I don’t cook dinner. What? So Hannah’s at cheer practice. Halie is at track. Ariana’s at softball. Aurora’s sleeping so there’s no one here to eat dinner. I will it all of this. I love this. You love my enchiladas? Yeah. Yay! Oh Logan and Brody are here. Logan. Brody. Dinner’s ready! I literally hurt my stomach by eating so much of this. Oh, well that’s good. No it’s not! Well it’s good that you like it. Oh, yes.
Dinner’s ready. I’m gonna have something else. No, you eat the enchiladas. I don’t like enchiladas. These are so good! You want my enchiladas? What? Yes you do, no, they do. They’ve eaten it before. They’ve eaten it before, they do. Dinner fail. Eat the food. No. Yeah, people are here! Dinner!! Do you like enchiladas? Yes I love enchiladas. There’s the enthusiasm I’ve been waiting for. I’m so, I’m so hungry. Yes, where’s your enthusiasm? Yes! High Five! Thank you. I take it you had a good day. I did. Okay good. Yeah, Aaron is getting seconds. I love it, it’s really good. Thank you! I had seconds. You had seconds? Alex had thirds. I had thirds. Yay! Look at Aurora’s little board. I mean we
still use her tablet but this is like quick and easy but it has all of her
different things on it. Look, Aurora. Your so tired? She just woke up from a nap.

  1. At the end of the video, Aurora looks tired!! She is so cute!!
    Alex looks sad about his car, he can't drive his car.

    I LOVE CRAZY PIECES!!! CAN ANYONE PLEASE LIKE!!!!!!!!

  2. It's hard for my family of 5 to get figure out something that everyone likes to eat for dinner each night, I can't imagine what process you go through!😂💕💕

  3. It just makes me happy watching your family videos – thank you for sharing. You guys are all so sweet and kind! Sending love from Vancouver Washington ❤️

  4. Who misses Jamie? That pasta salad looked so good. Go Max, get all the perks of being with Mom an Dad like lunch out! He snapped that pocket knife like a pro, "Got this!"

  5. Where do you get your endless energy and patience? You’re incredible people loving your kids the way you do while growing a baby for another couple. Amazing people!

  6. Please, Please, Please be careful with the charging box. Make sure that box is not warm. My neighbor was charging their phones incorrectly and the charger itself exploded. There was a big fire and they had to do a lot of rebuilding. Charges need air circulation to stay cool. I grew up with a large family (17) I still want to cook to much food. Lol

  7. I have an idea. You could let each child pick what they want for dinner and you make what they would like. It’s even better if I they help prepare it. At least you know one person will like it.

  8. Valentine’s Day is tomorrow so I hope the car is fixed for real.. they have some interesting Valentine’s Day cards for kids these days 🎊🙃 I don’t think it was a complete dinner fail if you had more than three people eat it and some got seconds and thirds. I don’t like and Chilada’s myself

  9. Maybe if you set down as a group to eat it would go better rather than so on the fly and you begging them. Once it’s out, call them to dinner. Have conversations not related to the food and they will eat better. Super nanny tips! lol. 20 minute timer and whoever isn’t done, doesn’t get dessert. Don’t make it optional, make it mandatory dinner that they all eat together.

  10. just wanted to say i’m loving the consistent vlogs!! with all the things going on yall still manage to get a vlog up and it is appreciated ❤️

  11. Awesome video! I love y'alls channel… Quick question for the people in the comment section does anyone know why the crazy middles comments come on and then off after an hour?? thank you and hope you have a good day 👍

  12. Alex, when you are worrying about having to take a bus to school, that's when you realize you must thank your lucky stars for having such 1st world problems! Your whole family inspires me to put together a big family just like yours!

  13. I love cooking..I cook at least one big meal a day 😀 and enchiladas are one of our favorites! Yours looked really delicious! I like to add cooked ground beef to it..maybe that would help that more kids would like it. 😀 btw..I love your channel. You guys are such an inspiration! ❤

  14. Crystal, cooking is fun and easy. If I cook for you it will be organic all the way and no processed food!

  15. I’m always trying different things for a meal. Sometimes I just put certain items together & my granddaughters love it. I make enchiladas bake n the crock pot. It’s good.

  16. Maaaan, I love your family so much! In a weird way it feels like we're related, because I know so much about you and love you all so much

  17. Max is beyond adorable. My little sister who is 12 has a crush on him and she is punching me as I’m typing this!! Lol
    Much love from CT

  18. Soaking tortillas in pre made tomato sacuse and putting Cheese over it is not cooling dinner i believe. I would think it's preparing.
    Looks so good though.

    Happy valentines day

  19. ❤️❤️❤️ I love watching your videos and happy early birthday Max I know your birthday’s tomorrow because u and me share the same birthday and I hope all the kids have a wonderful Valentine’s Day tomorrow too

  20. when my kids were growing up they ate what i cooked weather they wanted to or not. does your son work to pay for his car repairs?

  21. hey how are u doing i live in a group home i love watching ur videos i wanted to ask u what kind of video softeware u use to edit ur videos just asking

  22. also i hope she starts talking my mom and dad thought i was going to have to sgin i did not start talking till i was 6 years old so i just wanted to share that

  23. Hannah I love your lipstick today! I don’t want to sound mean, but I do not like the deep red on you at all! You’re beautiful with no make-up! Naturally beautiful, Love you & your family! ♥️😍🥰

  24. Oh be careful with that box…it's going to be really hot…and a paper box….nja…haha oh sorry a bit Swedish…make sure it has a lot of air holes so it has ventilation and enough of them…all those things charging at the same time…or at least let the lid of the box not be closed at night…:) Love to watch your vlogs on Youtube…I'm also a licensed foster home…but right now no kids…its harder here in Sweden to get placements when you are single…apparently….to bad when there is lots of kids that need homes…:(

  25. Hi just a random question, sorry
    Do you plan on teaching Aurora sign language when she gets older so it’s easier to communicate?
    I’m apologize if this offended/hurt anyone’s feelings I’m just honestly curious about that sweet girl.

  26. Careful with your pups and the essential oils. I made sure to check the dog friendly list and my pup had a severe reaction to the “safe for dogs.” Essential oil. The reaction was severe and upsetting thankfully I knew that was the only change and packed it up and aired out the house she has been fine since.

  27. I know it takes extra time but maybe rolling the tortilla filled with cheese and changing the presentation might entice brody and some additional toppings like sour cream and lettuce

  28. Do you not put chicken in your enchildas? When we make them (I'm NZ and buy an Old El' Paso Enchilda Kit to use) we cook the chicken up, add the sauce and heat thru. Then we put a spoonful or 2 in the middle of the tortilla, roll it up and put in an oven dish. Once all rolled up, we pour remainder of the sauce on top, add the cheese then bake. Maybe grill (briole I think you guys say) the top to crisp up the cheese.

  29. My daughter was so excited to see the hydro flask on the bench top behind Alex in the kitchen because she has the same one all the way over here in Australia.

  30. DONT hide the charging station in a box! If it over heats the box will catch on fire and then the whole room could go up in flames. Something at work almost fought on fire. Charging stations need constant air circulation to keep them cool. I know they don’t look pretty but they need to keep cool from constant air circulation. Safety should come first especially with so many kids around. Much better idea would be to put the charging stations under the desk.

  31. Ive been in the hospital since the 6th and was just released yesterday. The entire time there watching your channel eased my mind and made me feel like home. Thank you so much!

  32. My siblings and I are picky eaters there's certain things we won't eat for me it's most pizzas store bought I only eat little caesar's, pizza hut that kinda pizza I also won't eat fish and stuff like that it drives my mom crazy

  33. For large family meal ideas check out Jammerill Stewart, Large Family Table you tube channel. Lots of great ideas! May give you some more ideas for those hungry kiddos!

  34. Try rolling the tortillas up! Try chicken or if you want to switch it up I've made healthy ones by putting in cubed sweet potato and kale. They taste amazing and you get to sneak in some greens for the kids! https://minimalistbaker.com/sweet-potato-black-bean-enchiladas/

  35. It's not safe to keep electrical things closed inside a box. There has to be airflow so it doesn't overheat and catch fire.

  36. alex seems so mature in this video since he passed his test❤️❤️ (not saying he was immature before but he seems so much more responsible and stuff )))

  37. Brody remains me of my son when he was called to dinner. I'm gonna have this hahaha instead of enchiladas hahaha my son is the same way hahaha

  38. My kids always love a pasta casserole.
    You can warm it up later, eat it the next day or even cold.
    After my daughter started being a vegetarian I make two different ones.
    Even in a small family not everybody likes everything. Especially when it comes to vegetables, the tastes are very different.
    Maybe your enchiladas will be gone within minutes, if you cook two versions.
    It's still enchiladas for dinner, but with a choice. 😉

  39. I have the same problem and I only have 4 kids! One recipe that’s a hit across the board (and fairly cheap) is Mongolian Beef Ramen from Delish.
