A Birthday and An Anniversary

Back when the Duggar family was "only" comprised of Jim Bob and Michelle and their kids, spring had very few birthdays, but with all the in-laws and grandchildren, it has become a very busy time. Today is Joy and Austin Forsyth's three-year wedding anniversary and Ivy Seewald's first birthday. It would have been the lovely Grandma Mary Duggar's 79th birthday, but she passed away on June 9th of last year.
