    I know these people. The mad girl’s name is Bethany, not Stephanie.

  2. Beez says:

    Now that looks like a family that really knows how to have a good time! I bet birthdays at their house ROCK!!!

  3. sad thing is, so much thought and planning went into this one

  4. denise says:

    poor steph. always an ornament… never a star…

  5. Cwazy Wabbit says:

    Someone didn’t take their happy pill today.

  6. Tim says:

    (sigh)…what some folk won’t do in the name of ‘performance art’.

  7. Amy says:

    Cindy Lou Who rebels against Christmas.
    And all the Who’s down in Whoville pulled out all the stops to get her back in the Christmas way.

    “Rock the Bells, Y’all!!! Wicky, wicky, wicky!!”

    Please pause, bow your heads, count your blessings, and feel McLovin’s sister’s pain.

  9. xxx says:

    I feel your pain, little sister. I was the youngest of three, and Thank God every day that I can’t find any of my family portraits.

    This is something my cousin Jenny would think up and convince us was a great idea. (She had us doing mixed up Christmas carols as kids complete with costumes, she came up with the grab bag that’s going back to being a little raunchy this year, she came up horror movie Christmas Eve and she and my baby sis came up with the family Christmas ice shot luge – let’s not forget that she also brought 4 pair of her super high heels to our grandpa’s funeral to entertain my children). I’m 31 and still wondering what my cousin will think up for us for Christmas this year… exciting that we’re all getting together on Saturday!

  11. Blair says:

    “And what do you call this act?”

    “The Aristocrats!”

  12. carol says:

    It was a good creative try. Maybe the youngest girl wanted to be the one with the star.

  13. D'OH says:

    Are those REGULATION sized bells?

  14. That would be awesome if they had been hired by rich people to pose like that all day.

  15. Scrooge says:

    Why waste money on a Christmas tree when I have servants standing idle?

  16. amy w says:

    I love how it’s always the youngest people in these pics on this site who seem to get the true awkwardness of it all, yet the adults…oblivious!!

  17. Q says:

    …and 5 years later, Stephanie invented Festivus.

  18. Amused says:

    LOL. It’s like in Scrooged with Bill Murray when they decorate the little brother as the Christmas tree. Funny movie!

  19. judbran says:

    This is the best Christmas picture yet…I wish I had thought to do it years ago… Especially love the white socks. I would have been the one with the green ball earrings.

  20. bmj2k says:

    “Thank you everyone, thank you! For our next act here at the Senior Center Volunteer Christmas Show, Uncle Irv will play the spoons on his knee!”

  21. Alison says:

    Very unfortunate placement of one particular bell…

  22. Lola says:

    The tinsel garland that the dad is holding appears to be coming out of his shirt.

  23. Bikermom says:

    why does Marsha get to be the star??? Its always Marsha Marsha Marsha

  24. Carly says:

    Is that boy really holding an ornament in his teeth? And is the garland really strung through mom’s shirt? And dad agreed to wear bulb earrings? You have to just hear the mood music “Oh Christmas Tree” playing in the background to inspire everyone.

  25. Amice says:

    I agree with lower left girl.

  26. Angie says:

    but Mooooooommmm! Can ‘t we just cut down the bush out front like the neighbors?

  27. Anne says:

    You promised that I could hold the star at the top, and instead I’m just handcuffed to my brother.

  28. nic says:

    Pretty sure Mom scored her top at a Units store.

  29. Denise says:

    You can tell Mom put a lot of thought into all the props and wardrobe details…with the exception of the footwear.

  30. tracy says:

    HOORAH for pegged pants!!! and i love how dad looks vaguely surprised at the whole thing, like “wait, i agreed to be part of this? i did? really?”

  31. Jessica says:

    The placement of the bell the girl is holding is beyond priceless.
