The Gates Girls, as we were so irritatingly known as, are 5 sisters from Illinois who grew up singing gospel music and wearing culottes.  We have two brothers, but they didn’t come around till later and there was only two of them so we had the majority. People just always called us the Gates Girls. Of course now we are all married (or practically married) and have new last names.  And while you can take the girl out the gates, you can never take the Gates out of the girls!  Somewhere deep inside we are still those weird, crazy, opinionated, sometimes gross, but always fun, girls that have a ton of stories to tell you.

So if you have no life and want to peek in at ours this is the place for you!
