If you follow this blog, you know that ‘Quints By Surprise’ was nearly canceled after season 2 aired back in May…or actually I think it really was canceled…either way, the show’s future was not looking so bright. But then someone somewhere threw a Hail Mary and somehow connected with the powers that be who decided to give us another run (read more about that here: The Snake in the Barn). However it went down, the Jones Family thinks it was a great idea to bring the show back and we hope you will agree!!
To say that our lives while filming this season’s shows have been a bit hectic would be an understatement. To say those same hectic days have been overflowing with fun, excitement, and cuteness that is almost too much to bear would be a huge understatement!! In fact, if I had to describe the experience this time around in just a few words, they would be: exciting, fun, and over-the-top cute…and once again I hope you agree!!!

I would also use the word “natural” to describe the shows this time around as well. The kids turn three in January and so they are old enough now to know what it means when we describe what we are going to be doing for the day…and then get really, really excited about it! For some of the past episodes, like taking them camping or to the water park, they had little concept of what that meant and so the fun didn’t really begin until we got to what we were doing. But this time around, when we told them they were going to get “big kid beds” they had an idea what that meant and they were giddy with excitement from the word go! And when we said we were going to go to the fire station to meet the firefighters who helped save our neighborhood during the recent Texas wildfires, they knew what a firefighter was, no explanations necessary, and they were ready to go…immediately!
And that is how it is with most everything these days, whether it’s going to a Baylor football game, taking a ballet lesson with Eliot, dressing up for Halloween, or getting them training bikes. These kids, Eliot included, get so into whatever it is they are doing we just have to get them started and then sit back and enjoy the show…it is so fun to be a part of!
For those of you who have watched the show from the beginning, I think you will be shocked to see how much the kids (yes, they are kids now, not babies anymore!) have grown and hear how much they are talking, interacting, and running wild with their imaginations! Like I said, over-the-top cute is definitely a theme of the season!!
As always, we cannot forget to mention how thankful we are for everything that is happening in our little world! The love and support we continue to receive is nothing short of amazing and we thank you all for inspiring us to be better and do better with our lives! The Lord has blessed us beyond belief with our six little miracles and life is oh so good!!!
So tune in this Tuesday, the 8th, at 10/9c on TLC to see how the kids have grown and hopefully how the parents have as well…
