It’s fun to see so many people enjoying our kids! We’ve loved all the heart-warming responses from people all around the world. Thank you to everyone for your wonderful contributions and support.
Meet The Jones Party of 5:
Mom – Katie (domestic house goddess)
Dad – Skyler (hunter and gatherer)
Older Brother – Griffin (red-headed wild-child 5-year-old)
Twins – Falcon & Phoenix (thing 1 and thing 2) aka the Twins
We live in Saratoga Springs, Utah – just outside of Salt Lake City. It’s where we raise this crazy, little family.
The twins have an amazing story… we’re lucky to have them in our lives.
There were a lot of complications at birth. They were born 8 weeks early at 3.5lbs and 4.5lbs – and spent their first month of life in the NICU – we almost lost them and Katie – it was a miracle they survived. After Katie was released from the hospital, she had to drive to the NICU 3 times a day to nurse them. But after a month of doing this, the troopers made it through! And in the end thankfully, they’ve all made remarkable recoveries and are healthier than ever.
Neither of us have a history of twins – it’s the first set of twins in both of our families… so they came as quite a shock. The fact that they were both boys however, was sadly predictable – I come from a line of 4 generations of all-boy families – my grandpa came from 5, my dad came from 7, I come from 5, and I have 3 boys.
The twins’ big brother, Griffin, is a wild, show-stopping red-head – he’s always loved the lime-light, and always gets so much attention everywhere we go. We were concerned when the twins came that they wouldn’t get enough attention in Griffin’s shadow… I think we can officially put that to rest.
We’re glad to see so many people loving our twins as much as we do! Enjoy the site and we’ll see you around…
