Gil and Kelly Visit the Websters

John Webster, Alyssa Webster, Zoey Webster, 
Kelly Bates, Gil Bates, Lexi Webster, Allie Webster
 
Now that the Keilens and Smiths have moved back to East Tennessee and the Stewarts made the decision to settle in the area after their wedding, the Websters are the only members of the big Bates clan that don't live nearby.

Even though Orlando is a near-10-hour drive from Rocky Top, Alyssa and John and their girls are still able to spend quite a bit of time with family. They were in Gatlinburg with everyone last weekend, and this weekend, Gil and Kelly are in Orlando.

    They represent a well-known family here in Florida.

    1. No, they only "represent" themselves. At least that's the way it should be. They are not responsible for any other family except their own.

    2. No correction of the original comment necessary. They are a branch of the Webster family, and represent the family tree well. Other branches can do the same.

    3. What is meant is that Johns family is involved in politics there in Florida. So, yes they probably do feel a sense of responsibility to represent the family well.

  3. I'm very happy for them. They all married people that are very easy going about having sooooo many inlaws and actually enjoy being together with them. They are very blessed!

  4. My goodness, (and lol) John looks like a giant next to the rest of them! I know Alyssa is tiny, but didn't realize her parents aren't much taller than she is!

    1. No, she's wearing heels, so that makes a difference

  7. Alyssa comes across as hungry for attention.

    1. Why is that? Because she dresses her girls alike? Because she has photos taken? She comes across to me as a busy mom who enjoys her family.

    2. Yet Alyssa isn’t the one coming to public forums and thinking her opinion is so important that she must make a comment calling people out based on nothing more than a personal perception.

  8. Gil and Kelly are very fortunate that, with several married children, only one family lives away. Most children nowadays have to live where their careers take them. I and most of our friends have children and grandchildren who live quite far away. It’s difficult, but family is a priority so thank goodness for things like e-mail, messaging, and FaceTime.

  10. Alyssa has been through some serious heart issues this year and I’m sure her parents wanted to have some quality time together. Continued good health,Alyssa.
