This is the blog for Gavin and Carrie Jones and family. We live in Papua New Guinea and are working to see lives transformed by the living Word of God through Bible translation. Gavin is a helicopter pilot. Carrie, who has her degree in Public Health, is the lab supervisor and one of five lab techs at our busy rural clinic. Our son, Isaac, was born in 2004 and our quintuplets, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, and Grace, were born in 2012.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. The you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:3-6

Bathroom Antics

Gavin found Gracie and Seth playing in our bathroom yesterday. Gracie was busily throwing everything out of the cabinet, as though it was her solemn duty and required her full concentration and utmost effort. Seth looks so innocent. I'm not sure why he doesn't have a shirt on in this picture. It's too cold now to get away with that!

This picture just captures David's fun, intense, happy, relational personality!

This picture does not capture Will's natural intensity, concern for his own rights, and outspokenness, but he is a real sweetie who loves his siblings (despite appearances to the contrary, e.g. when he takes their food/pacifiers/toys away from them - being big has its advantages!). He is walking exclusively now. No more crawling for "Sumo Waddle" Will! 

Gavin couldn't get all five babies looking up at the same time, so you don't get to see Marcie's face in this one.
Clockwise from top left: Gracie, Seth, David, Marcie, and Will. 

Blurry, but you get the idea: David filched the plunger and toilet brush from the guest bathroom. Marcie is behind him. (She took nine steps in a row a couple of days ago, grinning the whole time. She was so proud of herself!)

This one is not bathroom related, but I'll stick it in because it's cute. Grandpadad surrounded by all his little "birdies."
Left to right: Marcie, Seth, Gracie, Will, and David.

  2. All of my young ones have adored toilet plungers and cleaners. Yuck! :-).

    1. Probably because they aren't ever really "allowed" to play with them, the novelty never fades. And yes, yuck! Marcie actually got her mouth on the plunger because David held it out to her. I comfort myself with the knowledge that it hasn't been used in all the time we've lived here. Surely any nasty germs on it have long since died???

  6. Love these pictures, Carrie. They are making me look forward to the day that my 10 month old starts walking. :) Charlee also loves bathroom play. In fact, when she is extra cranky or tired, I can take her in there and get another 20 minutes out of her. As far as gross things in the mouth, the other day Charlee stuck a scooper in her mouth that I had used the day before to make meatballs. ICK. Honestly, it's a toss up to whether that or a plunger are worse. :)
