Why batesfamily1 label on our edits lately?

We have noticed on facebok that there were a few fan pages using what we post on their own page.

July Birthday cover for Bates

Around June 15th, we started to plan for the July Birthday cover with getting all the photos saved to our computer so we could upload them on the site that we use. To see where we talk about making the cover photos click here.

This month was a little harder because Whitney was due to have Kaci on June 25th and we did not know if she would be born in June or July so we had to make sure that we made a cover with her. Luckily she arrived on June 20th!  

Now many of you have noticed that Brooklyn was in our July Birthday cover and before you get up in my grill for putting her there. I did check with the network and they said that she will be sometime in July! 

 If not then, I did make one for just Lawson! :) 

Friday, June 24, 2016

New blogging planner!

 Happy Friday!

We are super excited to share that we have a new planner where we plan out the blogs during the week before. 

We will be doing this way for the next 11 months!

Hateful comments!

Happy Thursday everyone,

So when I was on this fan page for our blog, I noticed that there was a very nasty comment made by someone. 

The comment was saying that we could not be writers because our grammar is not prefect for their liking. 

Many people think that hiding behind their phone, computer, or tablet that they can say mean things and not feel bad for the person that they are saying it to. Guess what it does hurt. No one is prefect! 

Please know that we have a ZERO tolerance for mean comments and bullying on all of the pages. If I see it, I will be blocking and deleting the person! 

Good day and know that we still love ya!

Courting Couple fan pages?

Happy Tuesday! 

Now that we have three courting couples, (Nathan, Tori and Jinger), we have been getting asked about doing fan pages for the courting couples.

If you remember that we were trying to do a fan page for Nathan and Ashley but quickly changed our mind until they get engaged.

We have came up with the rules that we will not be starting a new blog or fan page for Nathan, Tori or Jinger until they get engaged

This is not what we want to start because it's nothing but drama. This afternoon, we were looking at the Instagram feed and noticed that several of our edits had been used as someone else.

New Bates cover!

I have a little bit of explaining to do with the new blog cover. As we all know now that, Erin and Whitney are expecting their second babies. When I make new blog covers, I attempt to switch up Chad/Erin, John/Alyssa, Brandon/Michaella and Zach/Whitney as best as I can some times it works out and sometimes it doesn't! :)
