TULSA, OK -- The Duggar family likes to think big.

"It's never a dull moment at our house," Michelle Duggar laughed.

And in public. Hundreds of fans cheered at a Tulsa Barnes & Noble bookstore on Saturday as the Duggar parents and 15 of their 18 children walked into their book signing like the celebrities they've become.

"We feel very humbled by that," Michell Duggar said. "We are still parents, raising our family and learning every day as we go along."

Remember that part about thinking big? The Duggar's have a reality show on TLC and when The News On 6 visited their Arkansas home in 2006, the big house was equipped with four washers, four dryers and an industrial-sized kitchen.

Now, they have a book, The Duggar Family: 20 and Counting! Not big by book standards - coffee table sized seemed appropriate for this family.

"It's just all the different life experiences we've had, why we've had so many children and how we take care of them," Joe Bob Duggar said. "It's just a very interesting book because we're sharing our personal testimony about the things God has done to our lives."

Children and parents were signing, so by the time you got all the signatures it resembled that of a yearbook.

"We'll have an assembly line going just like we do at home," Michelle Duggar said.

While a new celebrity life is a different feeling for this family, it certainly hasn't changed them too much.

"It's changed a little bit in the fact that we don't do book signings - we might go sing and quote scripture at a nursing home and things like that on a Saturday afternoon," Michelle said. "This is a little different, but still fun."
