Halloween with The Six Pack and a Quints by Surprise Update

41 Comments 02 November 2010

Halloween was a busy, fun, awesome time in the Jones house this year…surprise, surprise, right?!  We started the day with pumpkin carving and cupcake baking and ended it with costumes for The Six Pack, a costume change for Eliot McKenna, trick-or-treating for the whole gang, and eight worn out Joneses (and two worn out volunteers – thanks, Jen and Megan)!!  Eliot’s official costume was Jessie from Toy Story though we convinced her to dress up like a Japanese Geisha with her sisters…they were ADORABLE!!  My main man Jack was the child sensei, keeping tabs on all of the crazy ladies in his life…yeah, right!  I bought the outfits on my trip to China and Japan last May and we had planned on using them for Halloween for quite awhile, though we were holding out in case we thought of something better before the holiday rolled around.  I’m glad we stuck with it because the costumes turned out great and it was an awesome time putting it all together!!  The gang did awesome, even through the face powdering and hair painting, and we all survived one big, happy, messy, fun Halloween!!

In other news, we have not yet heard from TLC about a possible season 2…bummer, for sure!  But we are enjoying the break and living as normal a life as possible.  I was told today that the network has received a lot of positive feedback about the show so thank you to everyone for sending in your good vibes for us!!  We are hoping for more episodes and feel like things are heading in that direction…we’ll make an announcement as soon as we know!  Here is the link to TLC’s website if you would like to give them your opinion of the show:  TLC Viewer Relations.

Powder up, Ryan!

Lila, Ryan, and Brooklyn are ready for their turn with the spray paint!

Britton, blue dog, and black hair – what a combo!

Jack and black hair – not such a good combo!

Eliot was channeling her inner Mulan…

Not the most civilized of family pics, but a good one nonetheless!

    Hello Jones family,
    Thanks for posting pics, the kids looked fantastic. You guys were so brave to do face painting and HAIR painting. Im sire they babies didnt like it. You guys are an inspiration to all.I really enjoy watching your family. I cant believe how big the babies have gotten in just a few months. God bless you all and i am hoping for seasons 2-10 so we can watch the kids grow up…much love

  11. katie jones says:

    I think your pictures are really cute. How hard was it to spray the babies hair?

    Love,
    Katie Jones

  12. I forgot I could check your blog to see what you all were for Halloween. LOL! SOOOOOO cute and creative. Love it. No need to respond to that question in my email.

  13. Amanda says:

    I really miss you guys I just filled out the questionare on TLC to try a get you guys a season 2!! Best wishes to all of you. Amanda

  14. Annie says:

    Jones Family, What a great family!! I sent my email to the network. I am constantly spreading the word about what a great show and good family you are. It’s so nice to watch a family not calling each other names and having tons of conflict but good people dealing with normal (what that is with 6 kids?) everyday issues. Good luck and best wishes to a wonderful family!!!!

  15. Elizabeth Brindley says:

    The costumes are terrific and my family and I absolutely love your show. We are very much hoping for another season!

  16. Fran says:

    I enjoyed the pictues so much! All the kids are so cute. What a blast! I sent another message to TLC also. Hope to be seeing more of you on TV soon.

  17. Kim says:

    Hope to see more on TLC….you guys are the only thing on TV that entertains my 16 month old and holds her attention. She’ll sit and watch an entire episode. (Thanks heavens for DVR) Its much needed down time so I can complete a few chores. She won’t sit 5 minutes for anything else. I put in my TLC request. Thanks for the link.

  18. Allison says:

    I love you guys so much!!! I pray you can come back and your kids are adorable! I love the names too!!

  19. demi says:

    Didn’t like your decision to do the show, but in watching it I’ve come to like it and think it’s in it’s own category, not to be bunched with J/K.

    But, I have to say that spraying the kids hair black, to be Geisha’s, has to be the dumbest idea on the planet. Considering what Geisha’s stand for and your supposed Christianity, c’mon Ethan…

    Snow white and the 7 dwarfs might have been much more age appropriate. Elliot being Snow White of course and the other 6 of you the dwarfs…

    Completely disappointed in this decision.

  20. Marge Hicks says:

    Thanks for sharing the pictures of costumes. Those kids are adorable. Hope you get another season.
    Doris’ friend, Marge

  21. Jeanne says:

    LOVE the costumes!!! That one of the six kids all done up is priceless!! Thank you for sharing!!

  22. Allison says:

    i just wanted to respond to demi: the costumes were cute and fun and not to be thought of that way.

  23. jennifer rogers says:

    Demi, lighten up! it’s their children their life their decisions.
    I went on TLC and begged to have more shows put on TLC!! Good Luck!

  24. Linda says:

    Just wrote in to TLC…I’m REALLY hoping they put you guys back on the air, my Monday night’s have not been the same. : (

    You guys are such a fun loving and wholesome family! God bless you!

  25. HeatherB says:

    I was so disappointed there was no Halloween episode. :( I sent TLC an email asking where’s your show. I hope to see you again soon! I secretly wish for multiples though there is no way in real life I could hack it!

  26. Lisha says:

    LOVE your show! Hope it comes back soon! I miss it! I will e-mail TLC and keep my fingers crossed!

  27. natalie jane says:

    Looks like a hectic blast!

  28. Tori says:

    Dang, Demi. Judge much?

    Cute costumes Jones Family! Looks like y’all had fun. I’m glad. :)

  29. Dawn says:

    Thanks for posting pictures of your beautiful family on Halloween! The kids look so big! My husband and I love your show and really hope you get many more seasons (we wrote to TLC asking for many more). We have a 6 year old son, named Ethan and 4 month old twin girls, named Daphne and Makenzi. Watching you take care of your 6 kids makes us feel like we can handle anything with our 3! Enjoy your multiple blessings!

  30. Klin says:

    What lovely fun!!!!

    I did more than send good vibes. I wrote and told TLC how I felt about having a great family show on that my children could watch I wouldn’t have to worry about what they might learn. Thanks for being a great example.

    Demi sounds like a hater to be ignored. Some people.

  31. Dachelle says:

    Great photos of the kids. It was fun seeing all the costumes and love the updates! I miss watching the program, posted it to TLC hoping to see you for another season! Your family is an inspiration. I love that you share your Christian values and hope TLC finds its way to see the importance of showing a family like yours!

  32. Lucy says:

    i hope there is a season two! i love you so much….you guys were SOOO cute on halloween!

  33. Lucy says:

    demi lighten up do not be mean.

  34. connie says:

    Just a costume everyone. It is Halloween, remember..love your show. Hope it comes back on.

  35. krista says:

    what cute costumes. wow what some kids.i love ryan elizabeth, eliot makenna, britten grace, lila addison,and baby brooklyn.

  36. Kelly says:

    You guys are great! Even my toddlers enjoy watching your show! You all seem like wonderful parents who really know what’s important in life and I hope to see more seasons of your show! I placed a comment with TLC telling them so!

  37. LeAnne says:

    Hello Jones Family, thanks for letting us into your lives and your home this past year. I am just amazed by your family. I have a 1 year old daughter and she keeps me so busy that I can’t imagine having 5 little ones at once. God’s grace is sufficient. Keep up the great work Casey in raising these precious babes, day in and day out. We hope that Ethan’s business is picking up lately. I left a message on TLC’s viewer relations site to have the Jones family come back for more! We need more Christ-centered families on television. God bless and Happy Holidays to you all.

  38. jodi says:

    It kinda looks like you dressed up as the “Gosselin kids” for halloween…LoL…that would be funny if you had.

  39. Evan says:

    Love the show! Hope y’all have another season!

  40. Anderson says:

    Your family is amazing. Thanks for sharing your inspiring story. We hope to see you back on the air very soon!!! We have also sent in a comment to TLC asking for more of the Joneses.
