  1. Happy 20th Birthday Travis. Hope your day is special. It has been almost 1 year since you asked Katie to be your girlfriend, so does this mean there will be an engagement announcement soon ladies? You and my first youngest sister are the same age (she will be 20 this August) and she is a big fan of your music as am I. Congratulations on being in ths world for 2 decades now.

    1. They’re only 20. He’s still in college. I would think and they’d wait until he graduates. Not sure when he is supposed to graduate but I think it’s not time yet.

    2. Yes I’m sure he wants to finish college first so he’ll be better able to support himself. I hope he’s not getting too much pressure to propose because that wouldn’t be fair to him, and possibly scare him away

    3. He’s going to Bible College...not something that will help him to better be able to support himself. He could possibly do that with his singing though. He mostly used to travel around and sing with his family but is a great soloist. They’ve made a lot of cds.

    4. Haha, I know lots of people who graduated from Bible college and yet manage to earn an income.

    5. They made Michael and Brandon wait until Brandon graduated. I'm sure Katie and Travis will have to wait, too.

    6. I would hate to have to support a wife and family on the hopes of cd’s being successful for the rest of my life

    7. 9:21, Bible college usually trains for some sort of ministry, so it's not sufficient for becoming wealthy, but that's not the goal.

    8. Lol he can’t make a living with CDs!

    9. I find it funny that everyone is commenting how biblical education doesn't support a family. Lot's of pastor's have raised families on a pastor's salary. I'm pretty sure his Dad Mike is a pastor and did you see their house in the episode of his 19th birthday and where he asked her to court?
      If God is in it it will work period!
      There are no guarantees with careers and education. My husband is a doctor and he was practicing when we got married 25 years ago. We struggled with 7 kids in a 3 bedroom house for years and our children are very close because of it. Most people's standard of living isn't what's best for a healthy family and children end up selfish and spoiled as a result. As long as they're loved, healthy, fed, clothed, sheltered and educated that's enough for a child to do well, and it doesn't take much money for those things. I would like to see them eat healthier, but that's not my responsibility or place to correct.

    10. 8:23- It doesn’t take much money to raise kids? I beg to differ!

      Delete
    11. 5:06, it really doesn't have to. We have 5 kids, and we don't buy all new clothes (shoes, yes). Food is probably our biggest kid expense. We homeschool and spend less on five than we would on one kid in private school. There are ways to raise kids without breaking the bank.

    12. Children are BLESSINGS. If there's anything we should spend money on, it is our blessings.

      Delete
    13. Yes, as long as spending money on our blessings doesn't mean going into debt or other unwise practices.

      Delete
  2. If you told me he was 12, I would not have been surprised.

    1. Lucky for Travis... When he's 50, he might only look 30! Good genes😊

      Delete
    2. Katie could be his mom! She looks older and he looks younger.

      Delete
    3. That’s ridiculous, he totally looks his age.

      Delete
    4. It doesn’t matter what age he looks, it’s his maturity and responsibility that’s most important.

      Delete
    5. Katie looks like she could be a mom of maybe a kindergartner, tops.

      Delete
    6. Yes, she looks about 30, maybe 35.

  6. Happy Birthday, Travis! I am really hoping that Katie doesn’t smash cake in your face this year. I always felt bad for you when that happened.

    1. I second that comment, @9:16,

    2. I'll bet he's gotten past that or they wouldn't still be dating.

      Delete
    3. I think she does it because she wants to physically touch him, but isn’t allowed to. It’s like a playful phiysical thing in her mind. Not trying to say it’s right, just why I think she does it.

      Delete
  7. I almost forgot who Travis was. Well a happy belated birthday!

  8. Without any makeup, I suspect Katy looks much younger. She is pretty with or without makeup!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. She does tend to wear quite a bit of make up.

      Delete
    2. Think you're right on both counts!

      Delete
    3. Several other Bates girls over-do the make up these days too. It’s such a shame.

      Delete
    4. Yes and too much makeup is kind of an outdated look. More of a natural look is in now

      Delete
  9. I hope Katie didn’t shove birthday cake in Travis’ face. I hope she’s grown a little more mature in a year.

    1. Sadly, I agree with your comment. The Bates girls are southern beauties but missed out on charm school. Chewing gum in public, pushing cake in faces, and poor grammar deflect from their message. Still love them, but I am often struck by their lack of common manners.

  10. Katie is young, but her hair looks so bleached out and tired. I'm sure her natural hair is soft, lovely and more attractive than the bleached alternative.

    1. Agree. Her hair definitely looks over processed.

      Delete
    2. Judging from the picture above, Katie will need many months for her hair to grow back in healthy again.

  11. Random question: Does anyone know where John and Alyssa go to church? I’m going to FL and would love to visit it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I wonder what Travis' family thinks about a bleached blonde young woman with lots of makeup. They seem like a pretty conservative bunch.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hope she quits coloring her hair. Looks like it destroyed to much bleach and color. Get a short haircut let it start a new life .(your hair)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I thought she was studying cosmetology. Why doesn't she know how to properly color her hair?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Sheesh!!! Why is every one judging so much! Can you imagine their feelings when they read all your comments, how would you feel?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I hope I don't offend anybody in saying this, Ellie, but Travis looks like Mr. Handsome in that picture. Any relation?

    ReplyDelete

    1. That's true, there is some resemblance. No relation that we know of. LOL
