  4. Will you be coming to New York? My family & I live in Dutchess County NY..about 1 hour away from Manhattan... we would love to come and see you !!!!!!!

  5. come to boston please

  6. They support Todd Akin?? Ouch! Still I love them anyway.. I love what the Duggars stand for as a whole, though.. We'd be a whole lot better off if we all got following their creed.. Love of and dedication to God and His Word, the family, the community, and the world! It's pathetic how selfish, and self-centered we are in this country today. Keep showing us the way, Duggars!

  7. I missed them when they were in NY Niagara falls. I didn'd realize. I would love to meet them. Hopefully on their daughters book tour. Would be exciting. Hopefully, they will cross the boarder into Canada. Preferably Toronto..Keeping my fingers crossed.

  8. I sent the pictures, did you get them?

  19. Hey Lily and Ellie!
    I've been hearing rumors about Jana leaving the show to get a higher education. Are they real? I hope not, I love Jana.

  20. @Anonymous

    Hi Anonymous 21,

    Those are just rumors. The Duggars have not made any announcements about Jana leaving. People sure do like to start rumors about the Duggars, and we are happy to help set the record straight. :)
