Bates Family in the News!

Guess what we saw on the Yahoo! homepage yesterday afternoon? A news clip about Gil and Kelly Bates and their 18 children!

Do you think the Bates family will soon "outgrow" the Duggars?

I saw that clip on Yahoo as well! Great video! I think that the Bates could surpass the Duggars by 1 or 2 children and if not they could at least tie them! Both the Bates and the Duggar's are the best!

they seem like a well put together and happy family like the Duggars. I love how they seem to be a close family like The Duggars. Maybe this is why the families are so close.

I think the duggars and the bates will tie with 20 children each.

Thank you for sharing that clip, I so enjoyed it and can't wait to share with the rest of my family, we just love seeing both the Bates & Duggar families, they seem like friends to us! : ) I won't even try to begin to guess who outgrows who, but it sure looks like both families are very blessed indeed. : )

Just watched the video :) Jud. wyatt is so adorable! :) I don't know how many more children they will have, only God knows! It looks like Kelly could have several more. Mrs. Duggar though..it seems like her health is declining. I don't feel it would be wise of her to continue having children...there has been too many complications...I still want her to be alive! They almost lost her last time! :( Hopefully she is content with the number she has now. Speaking of children, I think my Husband and I are expecting btw! We don't know for certain yet..but, we're hoping and praying! :)

God Bless,

I can't view the clip....but just wanted to post that I saw a story about the Bates last week on friday evening, I think, and it was a story about them on the show Nightline, I believe. Anyways, the reporters were talking about how they have a lot of kids. I thought it was wierd they were making a story out of a family just because they have a lot of kids. I love watching the duggars and bates but hate to know the news makes stories out of them because of the number of children...there are other families who have lots of children too, they just are not known, since they are not publically known on television or choose not to talk about it.

Anyways, wasn't sure if this was the same story, just thought I would share. Love to see the duggars and the bates back again....such an inspiration and encouragable story.

This has nothing to do with any of this but! I've got more exciting news! My Husband and I have booked our motel for a stay in Springdale! We will be sleeping close by Josh & Anna's car lot LOL! My Husband and I are going to visit there car lot to see if we can buy a car from them. Buy used save the difference! :) It will be fun. Hopefully we can get some pictures with them before we leave! We are also going to be driving by The Duggar house...just to see it (and maybe take a picture of it LOL!)...we aren't going to be in the area just to buy a car from Josh and Anna...there is also another benefit to the trip! My Husband and I are going to go to a Marriage Conference (No I don't think the Duggar's are going to be speaking there, unfortunately =[ It's called the "Love and Laughter" Christian Marriage Conference. There is going to be dinner, music, preaching, speaking, and comedy acts. It's all about renewing the love we had for each other when we first met. Don't get me wrong my Husband and I are SO in love! =] But, still...we felt it was something we thought would be good for us...to just break out of the daily-grind! The conference is in Rogers...YAY! God is good and all the time! =] Pray for our safety on our way up!

PS. The conference is on Valentines day. =]

How exciting, Tina! When you return, we would love to hear about the conference and your experience at Josh and Anna's car lot.

Mrs.Kelly Bates is a lot more physically capable to have more kids. I'm thinking she'll have at least 2 more.
