The Keller Grandparents

Mackynzie Duggar and Keller grandparents
When we posted new photos of Josh and Anna Duggar's five children earlier this week, a few readers commented that some of the kids have strong Keller features. So we went ahead and dug up this old video clip, in which Anna Duggar, two-year-old Mackynzie Duggar, and one-year-old Michael Duggar enjoy a visit from Anna's parents, Mike and Suzette Keller.
