  3. Lol! We know the feeling somewhat. 9 kids, so 11 people and only one bathroom/shower. Q: at the end of video when they're all laying on the ground in a circle... The girl next to Kelly, does she have pants on? I can't tell who it is.

    1. I think it's Alyssa. I know she wears jeans/pants every now and then.

  6. Exciting with a new season! I hope UP tv will come up with a solution so that we can buy the episodes online, like 19 kids and counting. I don't watch TV (we don't have a TV), only 19 kids and counting at my computer. I would LOVE to watch Bringing Up Bates as well.

  12. Michael's reiterating of the bathroom scene seems so rehearsed :/ And Alyssa makes it sound like sharing a bathroom is something they all still do...which clearly they don't because she's now married. This family used to be so real, so fun to observe, but as the fame grows, so does the stigma of being "celebrities" and with it a whole new way of appearing to "fans"

  14. I had read some old blogs written by Kelly and I enjoyed them a great deal. Miss that so much. Kelly is such a Godly, humble woman who should be greatly admired for her servant heart and humble nature.I love her. She had answered every question with such honesty and had shared many many things with the fans of the show. I recall one comment That was just was too rash, too unjust and Kellyhad printed the remark anyway and replied. She had even shared the loss of her father. I do miss Kelly's Blog.

  15. I had read that Michaels name was Micah at birth and they changed it after reading up on the Bibical name. I wish they had kept it as it was. Michael is too much of a manly name , even Michaela is. Micah is so much nicer. And how many people are familiar with many of the biblical names anyway??! There are many biblical names with different bible characters sharing. And we, ourselves really define our names. I love the name Mary, but did you know it means bitter? So what! My daughter Mary is far from being bitter !
