Just Like Bunnies!

TONTITOWN, Ark. - Arkansas' best-known big family will be getting bigger in the fall. Michelle Duggar and her husband, former state Rep. Jim Bob Duggar, say they're expecting their 16th child.

Michelle Duggar was honored in April 2004 with the state's Young Mother award. At the time, she was pregnant with young Duggar No. 15, a boy named Jackson born May 23, 2004.

The next child, a girl, is expected in October.

Well there really is nothing to do in that town except just have sex.

Per Ron: "The mom is probably her children's sister too!

I think it is appalling that this woman was named mom of the year last year. I would also like to know what ole Jim Bob does for a living to be able to afford a 7,000 sq.ft. house even if it is in Tontitown, Ar.

BTW I am from Arkamsas

Well, if he's a former State Representative, he's probably parlayed that into some position of power within some larger corporation. Also, I guess some of it depends on how they were building the house. If they were doing it themselves (doubtful, but possible), it isn't that hard or prohibitively expensive to do - assuming one keeps the plans simple. I remember doing some rough calculations, and not counting the foundation and fixtures, you could build and roof a 2,000 sqft house for roughly $20K in materials (analysis done 6 years ago, would have to recalculate for newer prices).
