Happy Birthday, Abby! You are by far one of the godliest young ladies I have ever met! You can outwork ten people. You have the sweetest, most tender heart. You never say a bad word about anyone ( I think that's a Paine family trait, and I really want tips from your parents!) you're smart, beautiful, and most of all, you love the Lord! Thank you for all the help you've been to our family! Could we just build you a house next door lol??? I Love you, my sweet "adopted daughter!" When Erin found Chad we were blessed, but having you in the family is a double blessing! #AbbyPaine #PapaBill #MamaJane

Thank you Pastor Mawson & family & Victory Baptist Church for letting our 3 boys join your youth group at the Bill Rice Ranch Camp! Needless to say, camp was a blast and it sounds like the spiritual encouragement was even better!! #VictoryBaptistchurchChesterSpringsPennsylvania #MawsonFamily #BillRiceRanchMurfreesboroTN #Camp #Jackson #Warden #Isaiah

My little cowboy! #Jeb

Thanks for taking the kids to see the fireworks, Lawson! They were obviously mesmerized! (Scroll ➑️)

Happy Birthday to one very special man in our lives! Papa Bill, I guess words just aren't enough to even begin to tell what you mean to all of us! One thing I'm thankful for, and that's that Gil got a whole lot of your personality... (and I think that's why he's so likeable!) Hugs to you from all of us that love and admire you so much! You're the BEST! πŸ˜˜πŸ‘β€οΈ#PapaBill

Happy 4th of July! Scroll for more pics... And yes, Mama Jane got a new hammock lol!! #Celebrate #GodBlessAmerica

Thank you, sweet Patterson family, for inviting the kids over for a day of fun! They enjoyed making slime, and I'm captivated by squishing it around myself- kinda hate I didn't make some too! Nothing like kids just being kids and having a blast with great friends! Y'all are the best! #friends

Join us tonight for Bringing Up Bates on UP TV @ 9pm ET, while we tackle the dreaded, and much postponed, shed project (Thanks to the honey-do list offer from my sweet husband's Mother's Day gift!!)... got it done and still had time for a few other projects!! (And that's a rarity for us!) πŸ‘πŸ‘Š And yes, sometimes work CAN be fun!! Lots of laughs shared and a brand new look πŸ‘€! Also join us at 8:45 for live chat on Bringing Up Bates Facebook (Bobby's in town, so get your questions and comments ready for the two little love birds 😻) Scroll for more pics

Erin's Chicken Pot Pie dish is one of my favorites, so I thought I'd share her recipe ❀️ Enjoy! #ErinPaine #FavoriteRecipes
SautΓ© boneless skinless chicken breast cut in small cubes with fresh rosemary, a little sage, one diced onion, butter, salt & pepper. Once cooked, add a little juice of one lemon & zest, can of cream of chicken soup, 8 oz. sour cream, and little cheddar cheese. Boil red potatoes chopped in small cubes with skin still on. Cook them until just slightly soft; don't cook too long. Drain and add potatoes to mix, stirring gently. Add mixed frozen vegetables. Optional: can add cooked bacon or turkey bacon pieces for extra flavor.
Crust (Pioneer Woman):
3 c all purpose flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 c vegetable shortening, 1 egg, 5 Tbsp cold water, 1 tbsp distilled white vinegar
Cook on 350 for 30-45 min until crust is golden brown

Thank you New Heights Baptist Church and TJ Wagenschutz for organizing basketball camp each year! The sermons alone are worth the trip! The boys leave exhausted, but talking nonstop about messages, memories, friends, and basketball, of course! We are so grateful for the effort you put into making this a wholesome atmosphere where the focus is Christ! And congrats to Warden for making the All-camp team! πŸ€πŸ†πŸ…πŸ‘ #WardenBates #NewHeightsBaptistChurch #FortWayneIndiana #BasketBallCamp
