About Shaytards

2016 has been another big year for “YouTube’s first family.” Vlogging their lives since 2008, husband and wife duo Shay and Colette Butler and their five children have enchanted a global following, bring them along on every personal journey, including recent milestones “AVIA GETS HER EARS PIERCED!!!” and “WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!!!” As active as ever with their multiple YouTube channels, Trixin clothing line, and starring in the acclaimed 2016 YouTube Red original movie Vlogumentary—exploring YouTubers behind-the-camera—the Shaytards have called for a brief respite. Shay and Colette announced their decision to leave YouTube for a year on their When The Kids Go To Sleep podcast, with Shay hoping it will “just be for awhile.”
