Quints by Surprise – Film Day Pics!

37 Comments 23 September 2010

First off, thank you to everyone who has commented on the blog, emailed us, tweeted us, hit us up on Facebook, or otherwise reached out to support our family and the show!  The response has been overwhelmingly positive, inspirational, heart warming, and full of love, love, and more love!!  And to know that so many people out there are pulling for us and praying for our little family is quite amazing…THANK YOU!!!!!

And now on with the show…or blog post…or whatever…

Now that several of the shows have aired, we are allowed to post pictures of the days we were filming.  It is sooooo hard not to tweet or share stuff with y’all when we are filming, but it would be a big no-no if we did so!  We haven’t been filming for a bit now which has actually been a little weird.  We have gotten used to having the crew around and really consider them an extension of our family (not because they are around that much, but because they are great people to be around!!).  But even though we aren’t filming, the craziness around our house continues.  Eliot is in full swing of 1st grade and of course loving every minute of it, The Fab Five are all growing like weeds on steroids and surprising us each and every day with their antics, and Casey and I are still enjoying the ride!!  I have a heckuva story to tell about Casey’s birthday celebration (she told me I must brag!), but that will have to wait until next time.  For now, here are some pictures of our Summer of Fun!! (This is the first of a few blog entries that will be mostly pictures – I can’t fit them all into one post.)

P.S.  Check us out on Facebook for more pictures of the day’s events!

P.S.S.  Since I know you’ll be asking…the Baylor outfits were purchased at Spirit in Waco and the hair bows came from www.birdieandpeanut.com.   :)

With these beauties at our side, Jack and I are two lucky dudes!!

Sooooo nervous!

Daddy’s little Baylor Bear :)

The Jones and Krueger Clans made the trip from Denton for the day!

Family picture day was a STRUGGLE!!  Heat, humidity, and cranky babies!!

Amy’s Ice Cream – their first time to have the cream…mmmmm’ good!!

Deep Eddy’s – do you think she was ready??

Our little cowgirl got to go horseback riding for the first time – thanks, Ann Marie!

Welcome home from China, Daddy…soooo good to be back!

And the first stop when we got back?  Where else, but Rudy’s BBQ?  Britton is a fan of the SAUSE!! :)

    Too cute! Love the show! Love that you are willing to take the risk, to put yourselves out there — come what may, ositive or negative — and that you are unafraid to show yourselves human in love and success, in temporary setback (nothing is a failure as long as you get back up and try again) and in hurt. Life is a bumpy ride, but it’s better than the alternative!

    God bless you and your family and thank you so much for sharing yourselves with us. It’s not a mistake: it’s an adventure worth having!

  3. Kathey says:

    Awesome family!

  4. Heather says:

    Love the show! My kids and I watch it and really enjoy seeing you all! I especially love the way you interact with one another – with love and kindness – very special in today’s world! Also love your testimony and the way that you’re not afraid to show that you love the Lord! Keep it up! :)

    Thank you for being such a great example of how we are meant to love our kids.

  8. Regina says:

  10. Brittany says:

    Dear Jones Family,
    I truly enjoy watching your show & am so thankful that a great family has opened their home & their hearts to us. Your lives are based on family, love & Christ. I am appreciative of the example you set & hope others follow in your footsteps.
    Thank you,

    Same comment as most above…LOVE THE SHOW! And it’s such a pleasure to watch you and two under extraordinary circumstances, be kind to each other and be thoughtful caring partners! THAT is what makes you different and SO watchable….thanks for opening your lives! A good example for all!!

  13. Melissa says:

    The pictures are super cute! I love the show!!! I look forward to watching it on Monday nights!

  14. Julie Rogers says:

    I’m loving your show on TLC. I like the fact that you’re honest about it not being a “cake walk”…money struggles, having to downsize your home even though your family isn’t downsized, etc…

    My husband and I have three girls ages 17, 12, and 11. When the younger two (not quite a year apart in age) were babies, I used to compare them to twins. I CANNOT imagine how hard and tiring it has to be to have five babies.

    God bless you guys for taking this on!

  15. JamieK says:

    The show is terrific and I’m amazed at your energy. But on a totally superficial note (sorry), my best friend just said to me, “I don’t know who’s more gorgeous…Casey Ann is beautiful and Ethan is a total hottie… they look like models that decided to settle down!” I just had to share that with y’all! Sometimes those things are nice to hear. :-)

  16. Christy says:

    Love the show and your family is just adorable! Your cheerfulness and patience with the kids is heartwarming to see. Best wishes in all you do and thank you for sharing a part of your lives with us.

  17. Angela says:

    Love the show…. I know this has to be very difficult on your marriage even though you guys do not show it… I pray that you guys will have the strength to continue to work on your marriage because it is the most important part of your family it is the roots to the family. My husband and I have 3-kids and although it is not 6 I can say that we have had trying times but we trust in God that we will be strong together and we are very happy. Beat the odds and stay married for ever because I can tell in the little that I see you guys you are made for each other. Good Luck to everything that comes your way… Very sweet children and Casey you are such a good (normal) mom :)

  18. Heather Ratliff says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the show!!!…thanks so much fro putting yourselve out there for everyone to see so that we can watch your 6 amazing and cute kids grow up:)..i hope and pray that God continue’s to bless your family!!
    God Bless

    Hello Casey and Ethan
    I just wanted to say how much my daughter (8) and I enjoy the show. It is truly inspiring to watch your family. I love the way you two are affectionate and loving. Your children are beautiful, and eliot is such a well adjusted child and that says alot for the dynamics of your home. You should be proud of your lovely family. Please dont end up like the Gosselins and the Masche’s. Love and respect one another evry moment of your life. Together you are a team, apart you are nothing….much love

  20. Karen Lyles says:

    Ethan & Cassie,

    I also just want to say how much I love your show, I just tuned in this week, and think your children are adorable, you both show so much love to each other and your children , just keep doing what your doing.

    A much loved fan !!!

  21. Fans in Houston says:

    What a wonderful show! My husband and I are both Baylor Bears. So we LOVED seeing all the kids in their cute BU Gear!! Sic ‘em!

    Also, it is so refreshing to see such a Christ-centered family represented on TV. You truly are shining your light before men.

  22. Tori says:

    Fun fun pics!! :)

  23. Julie says:

    Love love love the show

  24. Yvonne says:

    Thank you family and TLC – wonderful cheerful patient parents, it is refreshing after having watched other similar shows. Your show makes my day a little bit brighter – stay well

  25. Jeanne says:

    Love the pictures, and I love the show! It’s so nice to see a large family with Mom & Dad truly LOVING each other and the kids! I wish you all the best!!!

  26. Just wanted to stop in and tell you how much we love your show and your precious family! We have loved getting to know your family even if you don’t know us! =) We DVR the show and our 6 year old is watching it every time she gets to choose. Little brother still chooses “Max and Ruby” everytime! Ha! Blessings from our family to yours. Praying for you all!

  27. Shelley says:

    Maybe I’m biased because I’m from Texas, I’m a mother of multiples, have a son named Ethan, and my whole family went to Baylor…..but after the first two episodes, I was hooked!

    I have 3 year old b/g twins and a 9 month old and wow does my life seem easier after watching you guys! :-)

  28. Ena Clarke says:

    I wrote to TLC and told them to keep the show. In general terms I told them how wonderful it is to see a wholesome family that doesn’t act like that family in Pennslvania or Florida/Arizona. I love your show. My son in law works with Megalomedia to produce the show. However, that aside, I love the show. And I wrote to TLC to tell them exactly how I felt about a second season.

  29. Ena Clarke says:

    PS: I graduated Baylor in 1972. My youngest daughter, age 26 went to Texas State and I am urging her to pursue an MBA from Baylor. It is her husband that works for Megalomedia to produce your show. He is very proud of the show and thinks it is wonderful. Good luck to you.

    Doesn’t the fall weather feel good here in Austin? Nice to get rid of all that heat.

  30. Hilary Helgeson says:

    Thanks for letting us be a part of your life!! You have beautiful babies!! I thank you for being real. I LOVE the fact that you’re honest about LIFE not being easy …money struggles, having to downsize your home even though your family isn’t downsized, etc…you let us see through you the real side of life. I have 3 beautiful kids of my own and often wonder how I will make it through my day, your show refreshes me :) My daughter (3yrs) also loves your shows, everynight before bed we have to go online and she has to watch “the baby show” if it isnt on TLC that night. You are an amazing family, keep up the GREAT work.. may god bless you and keep you all safe!!

  31. Britton Livington says:

  32. mary says:

    First of all, I LOVE THE SHOW. It is good to see good old fashion family reality. Secondly, has Casey ever thought of getting her hair cut maybe in a “BOB” style? I was thinking when you were moving in that Texas heat how hot she must of been with that long hair even though it was in a pony tail.

  33. Cindy says:

    I really love your show!! I am 27 and my husband is 29 and we don’t have any children yet. Your family is such an inspiration and both of you are such great parents!! I can’t wait to become a parent and be great examples just like both of you! I wish your family the very best and I hope you come back for a second season. God Bless!!

  34. Brianne says:

    Love your show!!! Will there be a season 2?
