PEPPERELL -- The Pepperell family who won $10,000 on America's Funniest Home Videos last Sunday will appear on the show again this weekend to compete for the top prize of $100,000.

Deb Penney said she was shocked when a video she shot of her granddaughters was chosen to be on last week's episode, where it was eventually voted the winner by the studio audience.

In the video, her granddaughters, 17-month old Emily and 5-month old Lyla, fall asleep at the same time only to wake up as soon as Penney comments on their joint nap and the free time it would provide her.

Penney, her two sons and daughters-in-law and her two grandchildren were flown out to California for four days for the taping of the show. They have split the prize money.

The $100,000 episode pits winners of previous episodes from throughout the season against each other to see which is crowned the funniest home video of all.

The episode will air this Sunday, May 11, at 7 p.m. on ABC.
