Reason to Celebrate: #16 on the way!

Our “Jeubilee” Birthday Bash was yesterday. What a great party! The official count was 115 children and 46 adults. The weather was beautiful and kept a lot of the party outside in the beautiful mountain air.

Announcement at the Jeub Birthday Bash

One of the activities is, of course, gift opening. As people are gathered together, Wendy and I take the time to give a special talk. We make such a hoopla over the “birth” days of each child because each child is so valuable to those around them. Life is precious, children are a joy, and we celebrate the blessing once a year by inviting our friends and family to party with us. (We’ve been doing this for a dozen years…see here for party details.)

What better time to make a special announcement? We are extremely thrilled to make this special announcement: “Chris & Wendy Jeub are expecting #16 in May.”

That’s right! We are expecting another child, and we couldn’t be more happy. That helps make this announcement all the more exciting to make. Another Jeub is on his or her way. We’ll keep you posted!

    CONGRATS! SO happy for you all. I have a question about the birthday bash though… how do you handle the gifts? what guests buy for whom? and how do you make sure all kids get an even amount?

  • Wendy Jeub

    HI Amy, The easy answer is we don’t.

    What we say on the invite is to not feel obligated to bring a gift for each child. Good grief you would have to take out a loan! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just bring what you feel you want to bring. What some have done is bring a gift for children the same age as theirs. Others have done a family gift. Still others have put some really neat ideas into practice. Like; made of a copy of their best recipe and included everything even the pans!!

    We also have a talk with our children that they need to be thankful for anything they get and not to expect anything.

    Joy to you,
    Wendy <

    Congrats!! How exciting for you guys- and Happy Birthday to EVERYONE!!

  • Gaylene

    I am so excited for the Jeub family! Our 4th is due any day now (our 1st boy) and we are excited. We get asked all the time if we are stopping now that we have a boy. It’s amazing that people make the assumption we kept having kids because we wanted a boy. Although we aren’t sure if we will have a 5th (I’m 39) we are open to the possiblities. Your family is such an ecouragement to us!

    Congratulations! Children are unqualified blessings!


    Congratulations!!! Your family is beautiful…

    Congratulations! May God bless the coming little one!

  • Samantha

    WOO HOO!!!! Congrats! So happy for y’all. I’ve been wondering when the next Jeub would be coming along. My kids think your big birthday bash sounds like SO much fun. I’m considering it seriously, since we have six children total and 5 of their birthdays fall in a 45 day period. We could do a b-day bash around July or so and encompass everyone. That way I wouldn’t be doing 5 b-day parties one right after the other.

    Love Samantha

  • Cassie

  • bernadette lock

    Congratulations on the fantastic news of an addition to your beautiful family. I am also guilty of regular trips to this site to check if there is news of another blessing. Your family really is an inspiration to ours and we are encouraged by your blog. May will prove to be a busy month for the stalk as we too are expecting a baby in May (our 5th) God bless to you both and best wishes for the comming year.

  • JenT

    We took your idea and had a birthday bash a couple of years ago. We wanted to do another one this year, but when we listed our friends we discovered we would have to have 3 different parties! And not because we have a lot of friends, but because if we invited group a, then group b, and group c wouldn’t come and the same for any way we did it. Pretty sad isn’t it; that people who profess to be Christians can’t get along? So we gave up that idea. The one we did was fun though. And yes, we had several that “couldn’t” come, but the children loved it anyway.

  • Julie

    Congratulations to your family! We only have seven children so far, and we believe that children are the Lord’s greatest gift to us. We are so happy for you and thankful for your wonderful witness to all onlookers.

  • maudie smith

    Congratulations! Were expecting #6 May 17 only 3 weeks before our youngest first birthday! My inlaws are not supportive of our lifestyle so although we already know where having a little boy we still haven’t announced our pregnancy. My grandmother inlaw is on her death bed and we just don’t know how to tell my husbands mother. We are scared of her reaction and were in our 30s. Anyways not to babble about myself, I’m really thrilled for you guys! Merry Christmas.

  • jane

    Congratulations! I love following your blog and am excited for your baby, may God bless you with physical strength Wendy. Do you think you could post what vitamins you take and how you stay healthy through all these pregnancies?

  • Wendy Matchen
