Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: Do the kids have any favorite activities at Christmas time?
Yes indeed! The kids put on a homemade Christmas pageant every year. It has been so fun through the years. The kids make costumes and backgrounds and we’ll put it all together. They’ve memorized the passages of Scripture that talk about the first Christmas and they’ll use that as the basis of their pageant.
The first Duggar Christmas pageant was done by Josh on the front steps of our old house. All of the children dressed up and Josh was the narrator. He got his Bible and sat out front and just read word for word out of the Scripture and the kids acted out the nativity.
They come up with the most creative ideas. One year, they took their light-colored sheets and safety-pinned them around their necks. Jessa came up with an idea to make a beard one year. She had long thick curls and she took her hair around her chin with a rubber band and made a beard. Whoever could pull their hair around their chin and fasten it became the wise men. It was so hilarious.
What’s so neat about kids and creativity is that it’s stirred even more when you give them stuff to do it with. I always have a supply of paper, crayons, pencils, markers, pens; anything that they can think of to create with. I just let them have at it because I figure we may go through a lot of paper and the house might get messy because they’ve got all these things that they’re working on, but it makes them think. Their wheels are turning and they’re not just sitting there being entertained. They are creating things and coming up with all of these neat ideas. They get so excited and keep throwing in their ideas and they come up with all these great things.
I think those kinds of memories will be the ones that my children will cherish the most as they get older; memories of the fun that they had, making things by hand, doing it themselves, with us cheering them on and being the audience.

The Duggars' Favorite Christmas Traditions

Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: How does your family celebrate Christmas?
I think we do it a bit different in our family. Early in our marriage, Jim Bob and I really wanted to focus on the real meaning of Christmas. And so, we didn’t focus on Santa. We kept that idea out of the whole celebration, we explained to the children who Santa Claus was historically, but focused on his good deeds and his ministering to children. We tell them about the true person of Saint Nicholas, but we don’t sensationalize him. In fact, when our first kids were young, we probably didn’t even bring that up at Christmas time. It was usually at a different time of year that we explained the whole idea of Santa Claus and Saint Nicholas.
Our goal was to bring out the real meaning of Christmas. It was Christ’s day, the holy day of mass, Christ mass and what we’re celebrating is the day that Christ was born. We explained that to them from the beginning and how it is a huge celebration. We really make it a big deal. Right after Thanksgiving, around the first of December, we begin to prepare and get excited about Christmas day and how we’re going to celebrate the coming of Christ and how he came into the world.
It’s an exciting time. We decorate. It’s a big birthday party for Jesus. We make banners and put them all around the house and put out our nativity scene. We’ve got a big beautiful nativity that has the Christ child in the manger, Joseph and Mary and some of the wise men and the shepherds. That goes out on our counter and then we surround it with pretty white lights. And so, that’s our big emphasis.
We have fun decorating and baking and doing all that, too, but I hope and pray that my children know that when they come out of our home and start their own homes that the central focus truly was the birth of Christ and how he set the example giving his life, how we in turn should be truly grateful for what Christ gave. And as we in turn give from our hearts the joy that God has given us, giving to others is really what I would hope that my children come away with as the focus of celebrating the Christmas season.  
We frequently do mission trips before Christmas. That has been probably one of the best things we’ve ever done for our children. It teaches them about giving to others. When they come back from those mission trips right before Christmas, I’ve often heard them say, “Mom, I just don’t even think I want to go Christmas shopping. I don’t want anything. I have no needs.” I’ve been so grateful to hear how it’s impacted their lives. Truly in America, we are so blessed. We are so lucky that we have a home and a warm place to sleep when the majority of the people in the world are sleeping on a dirt floor and have barely anything to keep them warm at night. We don’t take it for granted.
I think in doing all of those things we make our own traditions. We have fun memories here at home and yet our heart’s desire is to give our children an even bigger vision for the world. And it’s really not about us, but we can make special family memories. And it can be just as simple as sitting down and reading together and coming up with a creative way to share that good news with somebody else.

Michelle Duggar on Celebrating Birthdays for 19 Kids

Michelle Duggar on Celebrating Birthdays for 19 Kids

FAMILY MATTERS on 12.06.13
19 Kids and CountingBIO

Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: How do you celebrate the kids’ birthdays, especially when you have multiple birthdays in the same month?
It’s quite interesting because we have a lot of birthdays, especially during the months of December and January when we have Jana, John-David, Jinger, Joseph, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jordyn and Josie.
Initially, when they were all little, we would do a party for each child and invite our family and friends. But now since the family is so big, we’d be wearing out our family by doing that every time there was another birthday. We decided to make the birthday celebrations more personal for each one of the kids.
Now each child gets to have a special birthday lunch with just mom and dad. If it’s a younger one, we’ll usually invite their older buddy, too. For the older ones, it might be just dad and me so they get a chance to just spend quality time talking and having a nice lunch.
They get to pick their favorite restaurant; as you can imagine it’s a much different choice of lunch spot for the younger ones versus the older ones. The older ones like to go to a really nice place, sit down and just have a quiet visit, whereas the younger ones want to go to someplace like Chuck E. Cheese and play games.
We also have a tradition that if we’re not travelling on their birthdate, we always have an ice cream social at 7 p.m. in our house. It’s just a family thing, not a giant party, just family. I have some kids who are social butterflies and some that aren’t, so we’ll let the birthday person decide if they want to invite their friends over, they’re welcome to do that for the ice cream party.
That week of their birthday is a fun time where they’re just hanging out doing things that are out of the normal, running around with dad or mom and getting to have some special time during that week. We really enjoy that special time with them, celebrating each one on their own.

Michelle Duggar on Giving Thanks

FAMILY MATTERS on 11.22.13
19 Kids and CountingBIO
Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: How do the Duggars celebrate Thanksgiving?
We always have family and even extended friends over for the holiday. Before we have our mealtime, we’ll take time to go around the room and give each person an opportunity to say what they're thankful for. The whole purpose of giving thanks on Thanksgiving is remembering back to the first Thanksgiving and those people who were grateful just for making it through that winter. We give thanks for just being in America.
We like to give everyone, even the little guys, an opportunity to share what they're thankful for. Of course, the younger ones are always giving thanks for their pets and sometimes their favorite toys, things like that. It’s really cute because they share from their hearts the things that bring them joy for that day and at that specific time. As they get older they start to realize all the deeper things.  
It always seems to come back to relationships. We’re thankful for provisions -- food, clothing, and shelter -- but the most important thing is that we’re thankful for the relationships that God has given us.
Often as we are interacting with individuals we hear from people that didn’t have the kind of close relationships in their families that they hoped to have. And our children, as they grow, hear those stories and they see what they have and how important it is. I think it goes back to thanking God for those relationships.
When the children were young we would make grateful gobbler turkey drawings. The kids would each take a smiling turkey drawing and add the feathers. The feathers on his tail were five different colors and on each feather we had the child write what they were thankful for. So often those five little feathers had mommy, daddy, brothers, sisters, and then their favorite pet. The sweetest ones were made when they were small, with their letters drawn backwards -- they would do their best! I tried to do those with the younger kids each year so that they would have a reminder of what they were thankful for through the years.

The Duggar Family's Favorite Fall Desserts

    The Duggar Family's Favorite Fall Desserts
FAMILY MATTERS on 11.18.13
19 Kids and CountingBIO
Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: Do you have any favorite dessert recipes for the autumn?
Yes, we do! Our absolute favorite dessert for a bunch of us in this family is pumpkin pie. Jim Bob’s mother, Grandma Duggar, would make homemade pumpkin pies when he was young and Jim Bob absolutely loved those. Now, all of our children really enjoy those, too. Often instead of a cake for their birthday they’ll request pumpkin pie because they like it so much.
Grandma Duggar taught me how to make piecrust years ago when I met Jim Bob and now she has taught a lot of my girls, too. Grandma Duggar likes to pass on her specialty which is a really tasty, flaky pie crust.
One of my personal favorites has always been pecan pie. My mother would make us pecan pie at all of our family get-togethers during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Also, we’re native Arkansans and we have apple trees all around in this area, so apple pie is always another favorite in the Duggar home.
Usually when we are baking pies, it’s not uncommon for us to make fifteen pumpkin pies for a big event. For a big dinner with a lot of friends and family we might also have, three or four pecan pies and five or six apple pies depending how many guests there are going to be.
That’s the most wonderful smell -- those yummy pies being baked in the oven. It’s just like a magnet; everybody seems to gather in the kitchen when they smell the pie cooking. It’s a great tradition to celebrate the season. We have to make sure we limit those to certain times of the year or else we could be overindulging in all those great treats!

Michelle Duggar's Top Tips for Communicating with Your Kids

Michelle Duggar's Top Tips for Communicating with Your Kids

FAMILY MATTERS on 11.08.13
19 Kids and CountingBIO
Photo: DCL
Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: Do you have any tips for how to encourage open communications and quality time with each of your kids?
I think what’s so interesting and amazing about parents is that I really believe God gives moms and dads the ability that no one else has to understand instinctively their children’s needs. As a mom, I always try to have one-on-one conversations about how they're doing. Some of them are much more talkative and will take more time, but others you have to really pull it out of them.
I think I can sense when there’s one that really needs more time and is maybe having a rough day. Maybe they're struggling in their math, and they just can’t get it, and they feel so discouraged or whatever it is. I just really try to take that time to connect with them. As parents, we can sense that.Getting permission from them to ask how they're doing and what’s going on in their lives and taking that time to connect with them on a heart-to-heart level is so important. 
We all have to work at coming out of our shells and connecting with others. It’s coming out of who you are to be who God wants you to be. And sometimes that means you’ll get out of your comfort zone so others can feel comfortable.
By being able to do that with each one of them, it really lets them know that you're there for them no matter what. You love them unconditionally. Make sure to communicate with each one of them and that it's purposeful. I know as a parent there are so many things that pull at us, but the most important things are those relationships and the communications. When you sense in your spirit that one just needs a little extra encouragement, take that time and just open the door, just talk to them.

Michelle Duggar on Creating Keepsake Boxes

Michelle Duggar on Creating Keepsake Boxes

FAMILY MATTERS on 11.01.13
19 Kids and CountingBIO
Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: Do you save keepsakes and memorabilia for each of your kids?
Yes, I create keepsake boxes for each child as a way of saving their favorite items from childhood. They're just simple little cardboard boxes that you buy at the store. I date each one, and I write each child’s name on it. As they fill up, I put the closing date on the outside, close it up and put it in storage. And then I start a new box. Mostly, they’ll contain paper projects or little treasures that aren’t too big to fit in there.
Before I close up a full box, I’ll have them come and go through their things and make sure that everything in there is something they really want to keep. Sometimes they’ll actually get rid of some stuff. A few of mine are more packrats than others. They get to decide a lot of the things that go in, but usually it’s the paper items that are saved – their little pictures they’ve drawn and some homework – and also treasured items from sightseeing and family trips that we’ve been on.
I know it can be hard to part with them, but I tell my kids when you move out your boxes will go with you. When Josh married Anna, of course all of his keepsake boxes came out of storage and went with them. They said they had so much fun going through the memories of his life up until the time he got married. I think they had 15-20 boxes that they took with them. It’s quite a collection by the time they grow up!

Michelle Duggar on Raising a Strong-Willed Child

Michelle Duggar on Raising a Strong-Willed Child

FAMILY MATTERS on 10.18.13
19 Kids and CountingBIO
Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: How do you handle particularly strong-willed children?
Well, I’ve had a couple of strong-willed ones go through here! I had one that really gave us a lot of challenges. We felt like we going back and forth saying, “Don’t do that,” and they would say, “Why?” They would just push it again and again and I’d think, “They’re never going to get it. It’s just not getting through.”
But we were consistent; that’s really important for parents with young children. If you’ve got a young child and they’re strong-willed, just be consistent -- lovingly consistent. Don’t get bent out of shape. Don’t get upset in the situation. They may push the limit, but they need to know what the boundaries are and they need to understand that those boundaries are not to restrict their fun. Jim Bob would always give this example: He would say, “We have always told you children don’t play in the street. Are we saying that to ruin your fun? Is that to spoil your life? Why would we say don’t play in the street? We put those boundaries in your life for a good reason. It’s to protect you because we love you.” Oftentimes as parents, we can see things that are a danger. And that’s why when we say it, the first time we’ll say, you obey it. There’s not a question of arguing with us about it. It’s just, yes, Ma’am, I will obey you.
Training a strong-willed one to obey was probably the greatest challenge I faced as a mom. I could train three others and they would quickly learn what I meant. But that strong-willed one, we’d go through these training opportunities over and over. Sometimes I would think, “Oh, they’re never going to get it. It’s not getting through.” But I knew I had seen a few of my others go through this and it was beneficial and did work in their lives, so I just didn’t give up. Even though they would butt heads with us, I would be fun but loving and say: “Mommy loves you so much that I’m not going to let you act that way. You cannot talk disrespectful to Momma, and you will obey, and hopefully, you will eventually obey joyfully.” But either way, they need to obey. I won’t budge.
They know I mean business because I just stand firm in what I say. Remember, you’re going to make it as a parent, and they’re going to catch on eventually. Jim Bob told me that he was not strong-willed as a child, but he struggled with dyslexia and it just took two or three times for things to connect for him as a child. He would remind me, don’t give up -- that could be a little Jim Bob that we’re looking at. That gave me hope!

Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan on Facebook: How do you usually celebrate your wedding anniversary with Jim Bob? Any particularly memorable ones?
It’s different every year depending on what we are able to do. Often we might get away for just an evening. Last year, our children surprised us and they planned a whole getaway overnight for us in a nearby hotel.
They sent us to supper -- they had gotten us a giftcard to pay for the meal. While we were eating our meal, a couple of our boys delivered us a flower bouquet. On the bouquet they’d attached a note that said that we had reservations at a nearby hotel for that evening. And so unbeknownst to us, when we had left the house to go out to dinner, my daughters had packed our suitcases and sent us away for the night!
The boys that came to deliver our flowers had a second set of keys for our car, so they put our luggage there and sent us off to the hotel. It was really funny: I’m sitting having an anniversary dinner with Jim Bob and the kids had planned everything. It was such a surprise and that made it so fun.
But other times, on our anniversary night we might just go out for dinner and have Grandma come over and babysit. So it just varies from year to year depending on what we can afford to do. And sometimes we’re surprised -- we don’t even have plans and so our children surprise us!
