    1. Maybe they wait for "Baby Quincy", so they don't have to update it twice :-)
      That's what I would do

  13. It's great how there's always someone to play with a large family. I remember reading one of their books -- they said they watch some episodes of the Andy Griffith Show, but not all. I wonder what's objectionable about the Andy Griffith Show and which episodes they aren't allowed to watch?

  14. We love many of the same games. Wish we could watch the younger children playing these games again on television. We miss ALL of the Duggars and want ALL of the Duggars back on television!

  15. I always liked playing board games with my family. Candy Land, Chess, Spoons (card game), Uno, Clue, Jenga, Monopoly and Win, Lose, or Draw are favorites.

  16. I was kind of surprised there were not any games on that list with a religious flare. I looked online and there are tons of them. Examples are Bible-opoly (like Monopoly, but with cities from the Bible and doing good deeds), Outburst Bible Edition, and New Testament Hidden Picture Puzzles.

  18. Sending love, encouragement and prayers your way, to your entire family. I so admire the steadfast Godly witness you are to this universal war zone, Planet Earth. The hideous enemy Satan is in his last allowed death throes of jealous hate against God and his redeemed created children. The universe of intelligent beings and probable future created intelligent beings will forever know that separating one's rebellious self from the Source of life and love is eternal suicide. In His love, God will never tolerate the sadistic reappearance of rebellion to again poison the peace and joy of the universe. The Duggar family is a rare and lovely testimony of Creator God's unconditional LOVE. Sin has painful consequences while God lovingly teaches and guides through 'the valley of the shadow of death'. You are precious and lovely parents... and are showing the rare qualities of a God - centered home. Know that millions of prayers and God's guarding warrior angels uphold you all. God promises to wipe way our tears... and sorrows. What amazing joy and restoration awaits us, His redeemed and adopted created children! This time of character growth and testing for loyalty is worth it!!! We are in our Lord's army. Much love to all, and I look forward to meeting all of you when our Lord Jesus returns to restore us to omnipotent God Family's welcoming Presence. In His Love, Margaret Rose

  24. is that a typo or do they actually play Settlers of Catan? Settler of Canan is a Bbile themed strategy game, Settlers of Catan is a grey area for Christians.
