Moses and Kaylee Revealed

It is SO beyond time to get this post up!! This event took place clear back in December, but I wasn't allowed to blog about until last Tuesday when the episode of Biggest Loser aired on prime time t.v. We are so proud to call Moses and Kaylee friends and getting to be part of their home reveal was such an AWESOME experience.

Waiting for Moses and Kaylee to enter the house. We all had to be there 30 minutes prior, sign our t.v. waivers, and then just wait with anticipation for them to arrive.

The film crew got several shots of the crowd while we pretended that Moses and Kaylee had entered the house. We were all fired up, chanting and screaming and in they walked. Wow! It was so amazing. They both looked SO fabulous.

Kaylee worked the room like I have never seen before. Even more than her physical transformation was her self confidence overhaul. She was positively glowing and it was something else. I've know sweet Kaylee since she was 12 years old, and I have NEVER seen her shine like she did this night. It was absolutely beautiful.

Lanaya was so happy to have her daddy home for a short 2 week visit. I think Dad might have been a little excited to be home too.

Moses looked years younger and so healthy. We really could honestly SEE the health in his face. What an amazing transformation! He had lost 118 pounds up to this point in only 7 short weeks. So incredible.

This was my favorite moment and picture of the night. Nothing like a hug from your true love to bring tears to everyone's eyes. Anita has been SUCH a trooper through this whole process. She missed Moses and Kaylee greatly, but knows they will all be much better off when this is over.

What an EXCITING night this was!!! GO MOSES and KAYLEE! The Manwarings are behind you ALL the way through this journey.

P.S. While we're on the topic of Reality TV...I am LOVING Americal Idol this year. Get ready because there is deffinitely going to be some Idol posts coming up.

I paused the tv several times looking for you! Didn't see any of you though - did you?

I just think it's so fun that you know them!

And.....I'm actually liking AI this year too. I had my doubts but I like the judges.

Saw Moses at the Apple the other day. I guess I'll be working out with them when they're finished. I LOVE the Biggest Loser show all the way up till everyone starts getting smaller than me :{ Really though, they've all been inspirational. I could still cry about them all sending Arthur home though. Seriously cry.

Our Family said...

How fun for you guys to be part of all that!! And yes, AI has been pretty exciting this year. We've been getting a kick out of Steven Tyler!

Oh man, that is so cool that you got to be part of that. Wow!
I love that last picture, and you are so right. I did get teary eyed just looking at it! Crazy the affect love and seeing love can have on peoples emotions even when you don't even know the people personally :)
I am such a huge american idol fan, but this season for some reason I just didn't really get into it. I watched the auditions then lost interest after that. I need to go watch them. I have them all recorded. You've sparked my interest for the show again :)

You are my new superstar family! How fun! I got all goose bumpy when they splashed "Shelley, Idaho" on the screen for that episode. I'm dying to know the time frame? How far behind shooting are we in real life land? They aren't home yet are they? Where do they go in the time between the finale taping and when it airs on TV?

Burning questions for the universe.

I'm such a huge fan of both of them, they both look SO great. (And I'm still excited about the fact that I had a sneak peek of Kaylee at church last week....she looks SO amazing!)
