Good Times

Babies + Bluebonnets + TLC = One Awesome Day!

43 Comments 09 April 2010

As the press release from TLC made clear today, “Quintuplet Surprise” will have a second episode and then some!  We are very excited to announce that our show has been picked up as a series which will be aired sometime in the 3rd quarter of this year!!!  I’ll let the press release speak for itself:


“You’ve seen large families on television before. They laugh, they cry, they play, they’ve adjusted. This isn’t that. This is reality – the kind that comes like a swift, square blow to the stomach when you find out that you’re not having one baby, but five. And that booming construction business you own? Well the economy’s taken a dive like we haven’t seen since the Great Depression, so suddenly even paying for diapers, let alone a mortgage, has become an uncertainty. Meet 34-year-olds Casey and Ethan Jones of Austin, Texas. The Jones’ are now learning some brand new ropes in a new kind of life that includes their six-year-old daughter and their five newborn babies who were definitely not part of the plan.  (Q3 2010)

Here is the link to the press release:  TLC Upfront

We do not have any more details than that at the moment, but rest assured you will know them as soon as we know more.  Thank you to everyone who has shared their excitement for our family and our show with us!  This has been an incredible adventure!!

In other news, the gorgeous pictures you see adorning this page are the latest round of shots taken by Ella Bella Photography.  If you’re not from Texas, here’s the scoop:  the blue flowers are called Bluebonnets and they are the state flower.  Every year fields of Bluebonnets pop up around the state and it is pretty common to see families taking pictures of their kids in the all the Spring color.  The pictures turned out FABULOUS, Elle – thank you so much for sharing your talent with our family!!  Check out Ella Bella’s website by clicking on her link below or on her logo on the sidebar to the right… Ella Bella Photography!

Y’all take care!

    Gorgeous pictures. I can see Elliot in one of the girl’s faces. I’m so sorry that I can’t tell them apart, but living in Utah has it’s disadvantages ;)

  3. Klin says:

    I loved watching your family on your TLC special. I myself am 28yrs old and have been trying for a baby for many years now. I know children are a blessing from god and like you said,”God only gives us what he knows we can handle.” your babies are beautiful and your older daughter is a strong and bright little one as well. I tried to put myself in your shoes of wanting a child for so long and then finding out that not just one baby was coming, but multiple babies and I have to say at this point I’d give just about anything to have that! I can’t wait to see your family grow on your new series. You are truley a blessing and inspiration to familes all over. Goodluck with your constrction business and hopefully the housing market in Texas gets alot better and fast! Good Luck and Thank You!!

  11. Valerie says:

    wow! they are all looking at the camera and smiling! that must be one good photographer! i love their individual pics too… for being multiples, the girls each have a unique look to them. they are beautiful!
    congrats on the show… still praying for yall!
    and yes, the brain surgery is a distant memory… all that’s left to show for it is a scar! God is good.

  12. Elle says:

    Congratulations!! God is good!! You are blessed! :) Thank you for allowing me to photograph your babies again! You have the cutest family!

  13. Whitney Burke says:

    CONGRATULATIONS and I am so happy for you guys! I am looking forward to seeing the show. These pictures turned out beautiful. You are all so blessed.

  14. Stacy says:

  15. Kristen says:

    Congrats on the show! We cannot wait until it airs here in my house! Such beautiful pictures! Wish we had some bluebonnets up here in Boston. It cracks me up all these bald babies…my Kamryn has enough hair for all 5 of them! ;)

  16. Karen W says:

    Congratulations! I really enjoyed watching the show.

    And WOW, those pictures are amazing!!

  17. Alexandra says:

    I saw your show on TLC. What a contrast to the other multiples that air on the show (the 8 children one). Please be careful to not get swept up in the money (and products, and trips) they will send your way. Keep God first in your marriage and family. God will always provide, even if it isn’t on TLC. Guard your family life…you can never rewind. I wish you well.

  18. jennifer rogers says:

    yay! I’m excited to see more episodes!

  19. Annie says:

    Wonderful! I am so happy for you! I had been praying that the public would respond positively to your story and allow you to continue with an ongoing show. The pictures are simply gorgeous – well done Elle! I hope that your show will eventually come out on DVD so I can see it, as TLC doesn’t show where I live.

  20. Daniel says:

    Awesome!! Congratulations on the show. I’m sure that God will use it in a powerful way. Just honor Him and continue to be the Provider, Protector, and Leader you are designed by God to be and He will be lifted up and many will be blessed. Just be yourselves. You guys have a great story. Continue to put your relationship with Casey first, after God. Can’t wait to see it. The pictures are incredible. Poor Jack has his work cut out for him…..5 sisters..Gheez !!!!

  21. Amy says:

So glad that I heard through the grapevine that your show was going to be on!! Can’t wait to watch more!!

  22. Tori says:

    So stoked for y’all Ethan!!
    I was gonna say what Klin said- Lila definitely looks like Eliot even more than before!! :)

    I loved the photos – what beautiful, healthy babies. They are so adorable now that they walk, eat whole food, and are beginning to talk. I just love them and look forward to helping out.
    Good luck with the show. I know it will be a hit!!

  33. MomOf4-Dani says:

    Congratulations on the show! Love the pictures!

  34. Ann says:

    Congats on your show!! How exciting!! I watched the 1 hour show and it was really good! Cute pictures as well! They look gorgeous.

  35. Congratulations on the TLC show! What exciting times you have ahead. I emailed them a while back about my 2 sets of twins, but I guess that’s not interesting enough…. ;o) Have a great time with it.

  36. Lori says:

    So glad your back your the every day guy having trouble making it and a woman at home with kids all day. learning to make do on less.

  37. Oh, guys, the photos are awesome! I cried seeing the bluebonnets. I miss Austin a lot, but much more at bluebonnet time! They just won’t grow in NW Arkansas, but I keep trying every year.

    The babies are growing so fast and they’re gorgeous! SO exciting about the series, and Quintuplet Surprise is MUCH better than the too many babies thing.

    God Bless you all — your family is part of ours every day in our prayers.

    Love in Christ,

    Oh, I cannot express how happy I am to hear that your show has been picked up. There is no need to tell you all to be gracious and not let this show tear your family apart or to treat eachother with respect and love on the air, unlike other multiple shows did. there is no reason to do that because you all are the real in reality. You care, you love and you respect on a daily basis wether alone or on air. You two have what everyone dreams of when they plan a famliy and i wish you all the best. I cannot wait to see the children grow and also to watch you go through all that comes with that. Thank God you found eachother and created such a wonderful family. Do not be afraid to show your fears, uncertainty or weaknesses because by being afraid sometimes we appreciate more. Best of luck to you all, I will be tied to the TV.

  39. Connie says:

    The photos are stunning! We don’t have those flowers here in WA – they’re amazing! Thanks for sharing the kids with us. I watched your show tonight and fell in love with them all.

    Best of luck to your family

  40. Taya says:

    Gorgeous pictures! But I only have one thing to say about your upcoming series. Please, please, please pull the plug if you start having trouble. Don`t go the way of Kate and Jon. Remember your Lord, and serve Him only, not the fantastic money a series will bring. For the sake of those beautiful six children. Love you guys.

  41. Delia Padilla says:

    I never watch your show until today, and I am tearful after watching it…so touch by how much courage you have both Casey and Ethan. I admired you for the determination and sacrifice to provide for those cute little children. You will be always be in my prayer…MAY GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY!!!

  42. Melesa says:

    Your quints are precious and poor Jack, surrounded by girls! Lol…He is adorable!
    I love the name “Eliot” for a girl…Too cute!
    God’s Blessings on the show ;)
