Kate Gosselin Gets Ready For The Holidays Despite Jon's Hard Times

Kate Gosselin & Kids Enjoy Movie Night:

Kate Gosselin and her kids are enjoying a fun night in with popcorn and a movie! Since the brood doesn't have school tomorrow, they are getting to stay up a little late and have a little extra time with their mom.

"Ahhh...happiness is: Home sweet home... With my kiddies, popcorn and a movie.. Snuggled up watching together," Kate tweeted on Sunday night. It sounds like the whole family is having a relaxing night—even if Kate did forget to put a "treat" in the popcorn!

The kids presumably spent the weekend with their dad, Jon, and Kate Gosselin was busy-busy, getting presents wrapped and taking care of other things around the house—she is definitely glad to be relaxing and to have all of her kids back home. Last week, a couple of them were sick with the stomach flu, but it sounds like that has passed and they are all just excited to be together, waiting for Christmas! There really is nothing like a movie night with the ones you love, especially after a busy weekend!

Did Jon Gosselin Get His Car Repo-ed? National
Times are so bad financially for the former star of “Jon & Kate Plus 8” that his prestigious BMW M3 was recently repossessed, and the infamous skirt-chaser is now stuck driving his mother’s beat-up minivan, reveal insiders. The 34-year-old dad – who works in construction and instal­lation – missed multiple payments on the vechile, disclosed a friend. “Jon contem­plated selling the car a few times over the past couple of years, but he never did,” noted the friend. “He loved it and always scraped together the monthly payments.”
But the hard-pressed hard hat – who lives in a one-bedroom apartment in Wyomissing, Pa., with his 24-year-old girlfriend Ellen Ross and several rescued dogs – could no longer afford the upscale car.
Although he’s lost a lot, Jon still has time with his kids.

Fol­lowing his split with 36-year-old Kate two years ago, he shares custody of their eight children – 11-year-old twins Mady and Cara, and 7-year-old sextuplets Joel, Collin, Aaden, Alexis, Leah and Hannah.
Still, expenses are high, and Jon is running on empty. He was extremely upset to lose the car, but he’s been trying to put everything into perspective and realizes the minivan he’s borrowed from his mom is actually better for lugging the kids around, noted the friend. “And the money he’ll save will help him, Ellen and their dogs get a bigger apartment.”

Sound Bite....Kate Gosselin Talks Christmas With The Kids

“Each year following the gift-opening marathon, and the hours of clean up wage on for me, the kids run off playing happily with all their new stuff and I clean up alone in peace and quiet. This is probably my favorite part of the day. Not because of the peace and quiet, but because I have the most grateful kids in the world! They return often while I’m sweeping the floor to thank me again and truly the ‘thank yous’ don’t end until bedtime. The happy chortling that I hear from rooms all over the house really makes ME happy too! I so love Christmas… and I especially love the happy chaos it creates at the Gosselin home!”
