Celebrating Judson and Brandon

Today is the second-to-last of five double Bates birthdays this year. The first two (February 1st and 17th) are Bates children, and the third is a sibling and a grandchild. This one is a Bates child and an in-law. And the last one of the year (November 9th) will be a Bates child and a grandchild. Happy 9th birthday to Judson Bates, and happy 30th birthday to Brandon Keilen!

  3. MO- Humm- Most of these pictures are old... It's okay to have a "just at home" picture. It seems to me like everything has to be action packed these days to be picture worthy. Happy Birthday to all- :o)

  4. Judson stole my heart years ago. He was an adorable little blond boy setting on the red sofa. Wishing he and Brandon a very happy birthday. May God continue to bless them. Keep shining Judson!!

  16. Is that a MAGA hat?? I've assumed the Bates are Republicans but am sad to see the family so strongly embrace the MAGA brand.

    1. Wearing a hat in a picture is strongly embracing?? I know some associate his campaign slogan with racism, but I know there are black supporters of Trump. I've seen them in their MAGA attire too.

  17. *Most people associate this slogan with racism and African Americans overwhelmingly oppose Trump.*

    But I'm also surprised to see any member of the Bates family wearing MAGA paraphernalia given that their wholesome' debt-free, scripture-focused brand seems incompatible with a man that is crass, claims he's never asked the Lord for forgiveness (a critical element of our faith), and lacks empathy for the weakest among us. Voting for him I would understand but celebrating his brand makes the Bates seem disingenuous to me, too.
