Georgetown Cupcake for Jim Bob's Birthday

To celebrate Jim Bob Duggar's 49th birthday yesterday, Josh and Anna Duggar and their kiddos, as well as Jana Duggar, who is visiting her brother and sister-in-law in Washington D.C., and a few friends enjoyed dessert from Georgetown Cupcake. Although Jim Bob (also know as "Pops") wasn't with them, the group wanted to do something to honor the Duggar dad on his 49th birthday. 


Flashback! The Duggars visited Georgetown Cupcake as a family in 2010, three years before Josh and Anna relocated to the area (video below).

  1. I think Jana is courting someone in the DC area. She's spent a lot of time there recently, and she's wearing a heart pendant necklace - which seems to be the quintessential gift join entering a courtship.

  2. It's a shame that the Duggar sisters will never be allowed to do anything like these two sisters from DC Cupcakes and open their own business together. Don't they realize that they are missing out on life?

    1. I'm 100 percent positive that the Duggar girls dont feel like they are missing out on life.They have done more than most young girls have at that age.If u followed them and were a fan then you would know.I wish I have seen as much culture and done godly unselfish deeds as they have.Infact I am 44yrs. old and i can learn alot from these girls and i have become a better Christian for it.They have a very full and satisfying life that most could only dream of,including myself.Bless u all...I know he has blessed that kind ,sweet, loving, giving,unselfish,humble, hard working,phenomenal,totally awesome family! Can i get an AMEN?:-):-):-)

    2. Why do you think that aren't allowed? I don't think there would be any objections. I think they are following their hearts just fine. As long as you are following the Lord you are not missing out on anything.

    3. Your exactly right! And the family is all for starting your own business I think Jim bob would be very supportive of that idea if that's what they chose to do

  10. Fun picture, Josh is looking very fit these days. I recognize the young lady, next to Jana she and her brother have been in episodes before.

  11. I know this is way off topic,but i was just wondering since Jills wedding was open to the public,did they have a metal detector to check incase some obsessed fan came ? I hope they were very careful.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why would they have a cupcake party for Jim-Bob's birthday if he wasn't there? I know if it were my dad, he would feel left out, LOL :)
    And to Anynomous2: why can't the Duggar girls open their own business? With a dad (and grandmother) like those girls have, I would think at least some of them would want to participate in the business-world.

  13. Can you please post more wedding pics?

  14. To comment #1...... I thought the exact same thing. I hope so! :-)
    Is John David courting anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  15. That would be so great if Jana was courting someone. maybe they are just waiting to announce it until near the beginning of the next season. Jill and Derick were courting for a bit before it was announced by the family. If I remember correctly.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I too was also wondering whether Jana was courting someone in DC. She was there recently with Joseph and now with Jennifer Hartono. I know the Duggars don't like to send their kids out on long trips by themselves, but with Jana being 24 you'd think the only reason she has someone with her on both occasions would be due to needing a chaperone. I love Jana so I hope to hear of a courtship soon!

  17. Nice to see Jana. Also Josh looks so much healthier ! Best birthday Jim Bob !

    ReplyDelete
  18. Is that Jennifer(a girl and her brother who stayed with the duggars a few years ago) next to Jana?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi, I was just wondering if Derick's Mom is doing okay, I noticed that this is the first week that Jill did not post on instagram or twitter about their weekly anniversary so was just praying that all is well.

    1. Her weekly anniversary?? What does that mean??

    2. Jill was posting "weekiversary" photos of their first, second and third werks as husband and wife on instagram. I believe she stopped doing this because now they've been married over a month. :-)

  20. I love Georgetown Cupcake! I hope that Jana gets to go to DC more often. It is such a good experience for her.

  21. Re Anon 2 comment saying it "is a sh...". How could you miss that the Duggars have already had several entrepreneurial projects? Running small businesses was one of the ways Jim Bob and Michelle started out together to earn their own living. Anna has already assisted Josh with his car sales business. The Duggars put on a huge yard sale with the aid of all of their children and volunteers from the community and donated the proceeds to assist others in the hospital like they had been. I saw the Duggar children with a lemonade stand. Jim Bob commented in a show that Michelle was very determined in the process of writing the books about their family. The girls already wrote a book. If Jill continues in midwifery that will be a form of business. These true examples are facts the Duggars
    that show your comment to be questionable. But thanks for stimulating some thought. I should use the Duggars as an example to becoming more industrious myself, how about you?

  22. Jana's countenance is so joyful, she has happiness radiating from the inside out!

  23. Au contraire - The Duggars teach and help others to not miss out on life!

  24. So proud of Josh because he is still doing what he can to keep up family spirit across the miles and honor his father's birthday!

  25. Little Mackenzie bears some family resemblance to Jana which can be noticed in this photo.
    Other times Mackenzie often reflects her Grandma Keller in pictures.

  28. Thank-you so much for this blog which daily shares more of what this good Christian Bible believing family is doing.

    Sometimes people are criticizing the Duggars for the things they are choosing to do (c-11).

    But I find by watching the Duggars through different media I have REALLY been helped and strengthened in my Christian walk, more so than by anything else.

    Now I definitely understand much better to actively and enthusiastically apply the Bible's teachings to my life.

    I totally respect Michelle, because it began with her becoming a Christian. When she was a teenager her friend shared Jesus Christ with her and she BELIEVED and CHANGED COMPLETELY to living a Christian lifestyle right from that point on.

    If I had taken Christianity on so whole heartedly as Michelle did when she first heard of Jesus Christ I wonder what my long and difficult life would have been like? God has wrought good from my life and I am thankful for that and praise Him; however I wonder why I was so thick and slow to REALLY be Christian and stop doing wrong and do right in my life? Watching the Duggars has helped me SO much to just let go of the world and fellowship with worldly people and to be happy away from wrong doing and secular philosophies even though they seem 'politically correct' and to keep on keeping on in the Bible and Christian living.

    I am so impressed that Josh got the position in the political realm that he has now.

    In this post Josh is honoring his father, even though J.B. is not present. The 5th of the Biblical 10 Commandments (Deuteronomy 5:6-21) says, 'honor your father and mother'.

    Now, because of the Duggar Blog and the internet, I have understood the basis on which to be respectful of the Duggar family and the things they are doing.

    I want to say this next point quickly here...
    ...the Duggars are following God's commandments - which are ONLY found in the Bible -.

    Respecting what the Duggars are doing leads people back to the Bible and what is written there.

    ( I found the point I made expressed in the link I posted here, the point is: only the Bible explains to people the Commandments which God will's to be done on earth.)

    Sometimes living and going along with other philosophies, - which are not based in the Bible - may eventually lead to the inclusion of and the approval of - worldly behaviours - that are not the will of God.

    I love the Duggars for caring so deeply, for trying so hard, for living out their faith so seriously.

    Accept and embrace the Bible, the word of God, as a plumb line for living.

  30. Say what you will but I am not counting the Duggar girls out of anything. Despite what some have said Michelle Duggar has shown us what it is like to be a wife, raise kids and also pursue other interests.She has helped with the businesses that they have had,written books and also travels for speeches. Most people with only a few children would not have take this on.

  31. I hope Jana is in a courtship. I wondered the same thing from seeing her wearing heart shaped necklace. Also, I hope by this time next year, Jill has had her first baby and Anna has had her 4th. I hope Jessa and Ben are married with a baby on the way.

  32. Again another AMEN

  34. Thanks for NOT posting my comment Lily and Ellie even though there was nothing wrong with it. Don't want the Skylar/Jana theory getting out? It wasn't rude disrespectful claiming anything to be truthful or derogatory in any way. Now however, I am annoyed that you try to play God and censor perfectly fine comments but post others that are harsh and opinionated.
    Really disrespectful bringing social politics onto the blog.
    Sincerely
    A greatly annoyed Christian
