    2. Hi Emily!

      A few readers have asked for the recipe for the meal you made while you were at the Bates' house. If you email it to us (batesfamblog@gmail.com) we will post it. :)

  3. "Little ones" -- she must be part of their ATI group. That's how they talk.

  7. Wonder if she has her eye on any of the guys. She sure seems to fit in just fine with the family!

  8. I just watched the 20th Bates episode and noticed that the 20th Bates winner, "Emma" looks completely different from "Emily" who is in the clips above also indicated as the 20th Bates winner. Is it just me or does anyone else notice this too?

    1. Hi there,

      Emily was the winner of the first 20th Bates contest, and Emma was the winner of the second 20th Bates contest.

      Blessings,
      Lily and Ellie

  9. Thank you for clarifying that. It would have been nice to see Emily's 20th bates experience/ episode as done for Emma. But either way, I really like watching the show in general. :)
    Thanks again! Blessings to you both as well!
