    I still rock overalls that sport “hug me”. all this attention is changing my mind about the plaque that mom gave me that reads ” remember as far as anyone knows we are a normal family” thanks Mike for sharing. i’m getting a kick out of all this.

  32. Bobby Five says:

    Portraits after Thanksgiving dinner? Not a good call.

  33. JK says:

    I like the red filter/tint on this. Looks like how criminals were portrayed on druggy episodes of Dragnet.

  34. that child’s overalls say “hug me.” that is all.

  35. Hanscoms or Giulianis?

  36. Julie says:

  42. Shepard Pie says:

    Hanscoms, you are an inspiration! I may just have to rustle up one of my own family pics. The Pie family albums burst with awkwarditude.

  43. sweet jane says:

    stay classy hanscom family, you guys rock!

  44. Watauga Mike says:

    You know, even though I found the first portrait to be quite amusing, I find this on shows us just how typical a family unit they are. I just wonder what number “try” this is before the “official” family portrait came to be taken. Mom is tired because not only did she have to convince Dad that it was time for another photo, but she had to get both kids ready along with herself and hope, that by some miracle, everyone would stay neat and clean throughout the entire ordeal. Dad just wants this over with so he can get home and out of this latest outfit his wife chose for him to wear. She probably said something along the lines of, “Why don’t you wear the dark blue jacket with that white turtle-necked sweater that your sister gave you last Christmas. This way you will look like the Captain at the helm of this family. I’ll just wear this plain-jane tan jumper with a matching t-neck and everyone will know I am your First Mate.” Yes, but all their friends know that SHE is the one who keeps this family boat afloat. “And don’t worry about your receding hairline. Just comb your hair down to the front to cover some of it up. No, of course not. Don’t be silly. It does not make you look like Hitler.” She then prays, “Dear Father in Heaven, please, please, PLEASE don’t let anyone make any kind of Hitler remarks about the way Dan looks when they post their responses to this picture.”
    Meanwhile, the kids are sedated, as usual, on the childrens’ versions of seraquel, valium and that quick shot of bourbon before they got into the old, trustworthy family car.
    But MOST OF ALL, the Hanscom family shows us the integrity of their core-issue values in that they willing gave us a second shot at them. If we were in England, I would say to them, “Bully for you.” But since we are not there, and I am not of British decent, I will simply say, “You got some classy balls there, Hanscom Family. You got some classy balls!”

  45. Steph says:

    wouldn’t it be “prequel”?

  46. Rachel says:

    The original osh kosh was amazing…All the ginger comments had me rollin!

  47. C says:

    You can tell the kid on the right inherited Mom’s looks and the kid on the left Dad’s… The faces are almost identical!

  48. Gabe says:

    I think this guy was our priest. Or my dentist, I can’t remember.

  49. Bree says:

    That was TOO COOL of them. This pic is hilarious!

  50. Heather says:

    Classy balls! I love it and I agree! This is what should be pasted on EVERY American family’s wall! The TRUTH! LOL

  51. Barbara Karena says:
