Jim Bob Duggar led his family in their annual paintball match against the Bates family recently.

The Duggar’s love for paintball was highlighted in an episode of the family’s TLC show 19 Kids and Counting (when the episode aired, it was 17 Kids and Counting).

The Duggar and Bates families got together over Thanksgiving to face off, with even the younger children participating.

One picture from the event shows Jim Bob with his nine-year-old daughter Johannah Duggar.

“Every year on Black Friday, they gather for a family paintball match,” noted the unofficial family blog.

“Even some of the little ones participate.”

Meanwhile, although the family hasn’t shared any pictures from their Thanksgiving, Jill has shared several of hers.

Jill and Derick went to visit his mother and brother and also spent time with the larger brood, including sister Joy-Anna and one of their cousins.

Jill said that Derick’s mother is doing well, while saying that among her blessings are “the best hubby in the world.”

She’s also excited about having a son early next year.

In the other pictures, she used the caption: “Had fun visiting family yesterday! #cousins #fellowship.”
