  1. Wait Isnt anna's due date around that time? I know due dates arnt exact but come on you'd think they'd plan so they' be able to be present during the birth

  2. Does anyone know if they're going to be in Ohio any time soon?

  3. I'm surprised they are going to be away so close to Anna's due date.

  4. i wish i lived in N.C.:( when is Anna going to have the baby ???????????????????????

  5. I have wanted to meet the Duggar's for yeeeeeears! I'm happy that they will be in NC for everyone who will get the pleasure of meeting them, but SO bummed for myself. I will be out of town that weekend. Amy

  6. Douggars please don't let fame absorve the love of God, remember that He is the one got you where you are and you need to dedicate more time to your children specially the little ones. As much as I like your show I could see the change in your lives as the fame and monney take over.

  7. I sure wish the Duggars would come to Arizona....maybe one day...

  8. Hey Lilly and Ellie,
    I was wondering if you have any tips on how long you usually have to wait in line for a duggar book signing? I was also wondering if you know which of the Duggar kids will be at the book signing in Charlotte?

    Hi Anonymous,

    It all depends on the size of the venue and how many people show up. We recommend arriving early. As far as which children will be at book signing, that has not been announced.

  10. @ Anonymous-I agree that the little ones are in need of more dedicated time from Michelle and JimBob!!! We've seen too much film footage of the younger 6 boys and girls after them acting wild! Shouldn't many of them be spending more time at the dinning room table for homeschool and the real little ones being blanket trained?

    1. what is blanket trained?

  11. I live in Charlotte and hope to attend (I have both books already) but we have out of town company arriving sometime Saturday. My son (11 yrs) and I are big fans. We also homeschool.
    Enjoy your time in NC. God Bless!

  12. Blanket trained is brain washed to not move off a blanket. Get ready for this one and don't fall off your chair. When an infant tries to move off a blanket, they are corrected to stay on the blanket. That way, they are learning discipline for later in life. When you wake up from fainting, google it. Have your smelling salts handy this time.

  13. I get to go for my b-day!!!! :) :)

  14. Am looking forward to driving up to NC for the book signing. I hope to get a photo of the family to use for a verse motto/scrapbook page for the family (Duggars, not mine!). Joy

  15. Ugh, rainy weather here in Richmond. Not attending the HEAV convention, but I do live in the area and pass by the convention center on my way into work, so I snapped a few pics of their bus.

    Wishing them safe travels!

    Wishing Anna a safe delivery! Cannot wait to see what name they will pick out. It will be interesting to see if they stick with the letter "M" or go with something different.

  16. Well, we got to the BGL early after driving for two hours to NC, but were turned away. We would have been earlier except for the lady we brought in a wheelchair. Too bad. Joy
