“The makings of some great family memories!” a post on the Duggar Family Official’s Facebook page, which was accompanied with five candid photos, read. “#Love #Thanksgiving.”
One of the pics show the former “19 Kids and Counting” star, 28, sitting on the floor as a few of his other family members try to solve a jigsaw puzzle.
Fans of the family were quick to comment on the post, writing things like, “Josh, it is so nice to see you back your family, we have missed you,” “these pictures are so nice, have a blessed day!” and “having a great time with everyone in the family, WOW! That’s what it’s all about.”
Josh’s mother, Michelle Duggar, also took to Facebook to pen a sweet post about what her and her family were most thankful for this year.
“Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday. It’s a beautiful day spent with family, food we love and most of all it is a poignant reminder of the many blessings our lives enjoy, for which we should be thankful,” she wrote. “This year for Thanksgiving, we spent a few days together with our family in a cabin in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. We laughed together, cooked together, sang together, told fun family stories, played with kids and bounced babies. It’s been a wonderful family time.
“As I look around the room, I am so deeply touched by God’s love, His forgiveness, His kindness, His provision, His mercies and His tenderness toward each of us,” she continued. “God’s willingness to redeem us through Christ, in spite of all our failures and imperfections, is so humbling and fills my heart with tremendous gratitude.”

“Today, I am thankful for family, sweet friends and most of all God’s love,” she concluded her post. “I pray that your day is full of family, fun and games, delicious food, long enjoyed traditions and a heart and home filled with God’s love.”
Earlier this month, Josh and Anna were spotted celebrating Jinger Duggar’s marriage to Jeremy Vuolo. Prior to that sighting, the duo had been staying out of the spotlight ever since Josh returned to Arkansas following his stint in a faith-based rehab facility in Rockford, Illinois.
He checked himself in shortly after an Ashley Madison hack led to his admission that he had been unfaithful to Anna, and that he battled a secret addiction to pornography. That scandal came to light mere months after Josh admitted to molesting five minor girls, including four of his sisters, when he was a teenager.
