    It’s a “How Many Screaming Kids Can You Fit On One Couch” contest.

  4. Julie says:

    Do you know these people? I would love to photograph them. Seriously.

    • annet says:

      it’s me and my family but the picture was taken about seventeen years ago. all the kids are grown up and both of my grandparents have died since then.

  5. Cristian Ponce says:

    I loved the Torchwood reference 😉

  6. Voodoo Chile says:

    Is it wrong that I giggle every time I look at the kid on the right?

  7. Tim says:

    …and guess what, kids? THEY’RE STAYING TILL NEW YEARS!!

  8. Hahaha says:

    This is my favorite of ALL!! LOL!!!! If this were my family, I’d have it blown up, professionally framed and hung over my fireplace mantle. ..with a spotlight!

    • Becca says:

      Oh gosh..me too. The look on everyone face is so funny..Gramma especially. She is just trying so hard Not to laugh..you can tell she has been there & done that with her own kids before, and now here it is, a classic toddler meltdown !

  9. Rui Xuan says:

    Oh, my, my. This phot struck me as being very candid; nobody posing(well, except the grandparents)! Au natural

  10. Cathy says:

    I swear. The caption writer gets me every time!
    This picture is 10xs more hilarious with the caption.
    For sure!

  11. Heather says:

    Yes we all feel the same way this time of year.

  12. Allison says:

    holy crap that lady looks soo much like my grandma!

  13. Val says:

    I’m glad the explanation was given. I was going to comment that in my husband’s family, children are forced to sit with scary grandparents and no one seems to notice that they’re terrified. It doesn’t matter that the kid is screaming in terror and not receiving any incentive to warm up to Great-Grandma. No, the kid has been held and the photo taken, and that’s all that matters.

    But maybe that’s just his family. Sounds like this family was just kids being kids.

    PS. My kids are still afraid of my husband’s grandmother (the poor old lady… age hasn’t done her any favors). They’re great with mine, but she’s got the sweet look going for her and they see her more often. My Grandpa, though – he’s pretty gruff, hard to understand, and not that good looking anymore. But they’re fine with him because he was never forced on them and they got to warm up to him on their own.

    PPS. I realize my PS is just as long as my original note.

  14. LAURIE says:

    Happy Hollar Days!

  15. Belle says:

    I have to wonder why anyone would even take this picture. Maybe the kids will laugh about it when they get older.

  16. Cierra says:

    1 out 3 kids not crying, that ain’t bad? Right?

  17. annet says:

    hehe, this is my family, and it’s actually the last one in a series of photos. in the first photo we’re all normal, in the second one you see my nephew starting to cry and my mother dragging me back to my place (i’m the girl) because i ran off to play… that made me cry which set off a chain reaction. my granddad tried to save the day with a stuffed toy and my grandmother just gave up…

  18. Ingrid says:

    … this is one of the best pics … EEEEVER!!!!!!! *lmao* xD

  19. slamjet says:

    Well, at least Gramps is trying to calm the one down with a toy monkey.

  20. Starbelly says:

    I love the look on Grandmas face! Does anyone notice how she is holding the little girl there with her elbow? Hilarious! I can actually hear this picture!

  21. Kathleen says:

    This picture perfectly captures the difference between being a parent and being a grandparent. Even when they are screaming their heads off, grandparents are just happy to be with their grandchildren. Very sweet.

    • Kerry says:

      The grandparents are INDEED very happy…did you notice the five empty champagne glasses with the bottle on the table to the left?

  22. Connie says:

    Grandma’s smiling ’cause she knows the grandkids are leaving at the end of the day!

  23. Sal says:

    I love this photo! The doll passed out on the floor is the icing on the cake for me.

  24. Raines says:

    I love my grandkids, but I couldn’t eat a whole one.

  25. Coline says:

    omg i love it !

  26. Raquel says:

    Grandpa is looking desperately at the champagne.

  27. Vin says:

    The thing that struck me was that the one on Grandma’s lap in the blue pants looks perfectly content while the rest were screaming…And is he also pulling the one next to him’s ear?

  28. Dub-P says:

    I love how the kid on grandma’s lap, the only one not crying, is pulling off the ear of the other baby. This picture is AWESOME.

  29. Tiffany says:

    Grandma an Grandpa look like they are eyeing the bottle of champagne on the table, and can’t wait until this picture taking nightmare is over!!

  30. Crystal says:

    This is what happens when the grandparents never come to visit. The kids think they’re strangers.

  31. Mary says:

    The kid on Grandmom’s lap is just chilling and taking the opportunity to pick on the other. He wants the lap to himself.

  32. Sharon says:

    Grandad’s only smiling because he’s looking at the Champagne bottle!

  33. linda s says:

    AND Grandpa looks like HE is scared to death. Also loving his socks!

  34. linda s says:

    Grandma’s looking like the cat that swallowed the canary. She’s got a secret!

  35. Jon says:

    Decades later I still feel this way when I see my grandparents, but now I’m better at hiding it until I visit my therapist.

  36. Okfrank says:

    They’re coming ………. and the grandparents can’t wait for them to leave!

  37. Freak Speely says:

    LMAO, did the creepy Easter Bunny come in to take the pic? I love how the one calm kid is trying to comfort the other kid. xD

  38. karma says:

    OMG…it’s Marnie!

  39. Andy says:

    #3 baby on the lap is in training for evil yanking on the Cousin’s ear.

  40. Joanne says:

    The love these kids have for their grandparents is obvious!

  41. Margie says:

    Edna is thinking,,,don’t worry Hubert. These crying, ungrateful rugrats will be gone before midnight and we won’t have to do this again for at least a year.

  42. magillicuddy says:

    I didn’t know my grandparents so… and my kids do not have any so .. I guess we’re lucky !!

  43. Karen says:

    Feel the love!

  44. Penny says:

    I love love love this photo!

  45. M says:

    Love it! Look at the look on grandmas face haha! Priceless!

  46. Karen says:

    Absolute family picture perfection!!!!!! LOVE IT!!

  47. bob says:

    the face of the little girl on the right…terror at its worst…

  48. Cindi says:

    Yep, typical family holiday picture. You can never get all members of a family to be happy at one time!

  49. mary says:

    I agree kids. Old people scare the crap out me too.
