The Awkward Family Photos book is coming tomorrow! Join the AFP Grandparents for a sneak peek…
It’s ‘remarkable’ really! Bless their hearts!
The best part for me was the end where your grand-dad removes his glasses and rubs his eyes in exhaustion.
When grandma kept saying that it was awkward, I was thinking to myself, “It’s supposed to be awkward! That’s what the book is called!” This is hilarious! Non-stop laughter.
Wish I still had my Grandparents. This is priceless.
I know I am seeing this late, but I am begging you please put more vids of your grandparents reading your book! They are so funny I have been laughing for 10 minutes!!
Word’s can’t describe how I feel about any of this.
MY god I love your grandparents!!! They are adorable!! 🙂
punks in space
Too funny! Makes me really miss my grandparents! Your grandparents are such a cute couple! You will have to let us know when or IF they ever make it past the cover of the book! 😉 lol
Sadly I’m only turning 40 this year. Why is that sad, you ask? Because I seriously cannot wait til it’s my turn to be a grandparent exactly like this. I fully intend to absolutely positively adopt a Brooklyn accent and WORK IT LIKE I OWN IT. Never mind that I was born in Florida, dammit, I’m a Jew and it’s my right to be an awesomely hilarious old lady. I have about 35 years to work on my husband, who actually was born in Queens but has no accent.
Anyway. This is not all about me. I <3 your grandparents so very much!! They totally need a TV show.
I think I love your grandparents. And I miss my own. 🙁
I adore these two. If I order the book will they come over and read it to me? I could watch them all day discussing things. Thank you for sharing them with all of us.
Haha! Love it! 😉
Can I be adopted by them? They are so cute!!!
I wish your grandparents were mine! They are awesome!
ROTFL oh! my goodness! They are adorable! Just like my parents too 🙂
Please bring them on the book tour!
this made my day, central casting, this is great. buy some TV ad space !
I see a sitcom!! Let’s air these two, they are SO lovable and charming!
And I thought my grandparents 6 hour thanksgiving discussion about Joy Bahar’s hair color was funny.
BWA HA HA! Just as I was thinking that maybe you glued the pages together and they COULDN’T open the book, you remarked that they just wouldn’t make it past the over. I will forever think of any photo I see here as, “Oh, THAT’S awkwood.” Love them a bunch!
guf, faw! i can’t wait to get past the cover and see the eye of my one sister, from underneath the family of my other sister!
They made me laugh harder than any of the photos!! Too cute for words and I love the “awkward…” “that’s awkward…” OMG, hilarious to listen! Love them!
SO CUTE. haahahah i love these g- units!
They are truly everyone’s grandparents! I miss mine…I am virtually adopting yours.
Each video of them endears me more and more to these two–they’re awesome!!!!!
The best part? They don’t even open the friggin’ book.
God, I love ’em.
Can’t judge a book by its cover. Er… wait. Maybe you can.
<3 THEM!!! Thank you so much for sharing them with us! They make my day with every new video 🙂
They are just too stinkin’ cute!
I think so too! They make me miss my parents soooo much!
Your grandparents are SO AWESOME!
I LOVE the grandparents! I can’t wait for my copy of the book to come in the mail!
Is there anyway to apply for them to adopt me as an honorary grandchild? I love these 2 so much. And they clearly love their grandchildren because they are taking the COVER of the book so seriously.
I propose that you post a weekly snippet of them examining the minutia of one page each week – that would rock!
your grandparents are just awesome!
I want them to be my grandparents!! Talk about awkward! LOVE THEM!
Can’t wait for my copy to arrive! Finally get to see my grandparents immortalized for all eternity in book form! They are the couple in 70’s formal wear, holding each others elbows, in the middle of the tangerine/mustard yellow shag carpeted gold brocade curtained living room, with the brown and burnt orange tweed/wool upholstered couch.
hey mandy, we love that photo! it’s on p. 150.
Hey, wait a minute! We had a brown and burnt orange tweed/wool upholstered couch. I thought it was very tasteful… hahahahahahaha!
On the They Might Be Giants album Miscellaneous Tea, they have a snippet of an older couple leaving a message on a joke hotline put out by the band. They saw the add in The Village Voice and have no idea who the band is or what joke is about. They discuss this at length on the message that they leave. Your grandparents are exactly like that couple here.
Wunnerful, Wunnerful. It just doesn’t get any better than that!
HAHAHAHAHAH I<3 the AFP grandparents!
they are so cute..I LOVE THEM<3
oh my goodness I’m laughing so hard! I just kept hoping they’d open the book. but alas, they never did! That is something my parents would do! To this very day, when I photograph my portrait clients they always ask “Why isn’t she looking at the camera?” or “Why isn’t it in the center?” or my favorite (as dad is looking at a close up shot of a little baby) “I don’t get it. What are you trying to say with this picture?”.
um, nothing dad, forget it.
Man, I’m just dying here…
“There’s two girls between three boys. …Where’s the other girl? …Right there. …The top one’s not a girl. …OMG, you’re right, looks like a girl! …There’s one girl between four boys. That’s what’s awkward about it.”
(…Aaaaand spew the orange juice onto the keyboard.)
I’m on the third watching of this little gem. With each viewing, the snorts get louder. I’m so adopting the AFP grandparents.
