The Scream 2 - Family Portrait

“Found this in a box of photos from my parent’s attic about 5 years ago. No one remembers the details including my mom. Maybe it was too traumatic…. I’m the one screaming.”

    This is what happens when you step on a rusty nail. Lock Jaw!

    You all had good ideas. I am the beautiful baby “boy” but not I’m a girl. And the truth is, it wasn’t our brother at all. No pee or poop. Just me pulling that long flowing hair. That’s what she gets.

  3. lori says:

    i love this picture lol..that brother looks SO sneaky !

  4. Stephanie says:

    Early photo of a drama queen.

  5. Elaine says:

    He’s pinching her or doing something mean and hurtful! He’s got that serene look of totally getting away with it and she’s not just having a hissy fit about having to have her picture made.

  6. Dan says:

    “And I-I-I-I-I-Ieee I, will always love youuuuuuu, eeeeI, will always love you”!

  7. songbirdcindi says:

    I’m just thrilled that of all the pictures that probably came out of that photo shoot, Mom and Dad kept this one!

  8. RedJack says:

    She’s about to sneeze people. geez, no whiz, no hair pulling , no thumb. Just a sneeze.

  9. bobbie says:

    having raised two children through yearly photo shoots I can tell you that this exhausted, pained but no means in pain look comes from this final straw in patiences after the photographer says, “Okay, smile, that’s it” “Now just once more”.

    • scruffy says:

      Hey bobbie. I have to agree, kind of.

      It looks like a whole lot of exasperation, combined with something else. But what? That sort of reaction must be due to something more than baby pee. I bet it’s a big stinky, gooey, number twoie. I bet that it is smelling up the place and has just seeped out onto and through the screamer’s nice new outfit. The outfit she was planning to wear that night to a friend’s party. Now all she wants to do is get the heck outa there, burn the clothes and shower for the next year.

      The brother looks like he’s thinking, “Boy that smells. I’m glad I’m not holding him.”

      Ah the joys of parenthood. 😉

    The crazed look in the boy’s eyes worries me. The girl looks like she’s being stabbed.

  11. EGD says:

    That looks more like a “stop copying me” yell.

  12. JerseyPam says:

    I feel your pain…I have two brothers also.

  13. kat says:

    My guess that the little guy on her lap just took a whiz.

  14. eko says:

    Baby looks to be wondering “WHAT kinda family have I been born into!”

  15. Bob says:

    Where’s his thumb?

  16. Ducky says:

    When ya gotta yawn, you’ve gotta yawn.

    • Marty says:

      That is no yawn-I usually don’t look like I’m in pain when I yawn. She is definitely hurting from something her brother did or is doing to her while the picture is being taken.

  17. DanaK says:

    Someone just got goosed!

  18. magpie says:

    She heard, “chin down” one too many times and the pinch from her conniving brother didn’t help matters either.

  19. NorandaPete says:

    Don’t stand so close to me!!!

  20. CTBRK says:

    Apparently someone just commented AGAIN on how cute the baby was!! :- )

  21. Calvin says:

    The look on the brother’s face tells me he’s responsible for the screaming. Come to think of it, the baby doesn’t look too innocent, either.

    • CJ says:

      haha! I concur. The baby probably peed on her moments before the brother stealthily tortured her. Why she is sooo horrified, a double whammy sneak attack!!

    • ScoutC says:

      Suddenly, Susie felt a moist warmth spreading across her lap and a stabbing pain in her side. Everything went blurry, and then….

  22. carol says:

    There’s one in every crowd. Love it!

  23. CarrieM says:

    She must do this all the time. The other two don’t even look startled. (That is a beautiful baby, BTW.)

    • CarolaG says:

      She does and that beautiful baby is me now 26. Thanks for the compliment

      • Elizabeth says:

        You were a very cute baby and I do think you look surprised… but in a calm, third-child-who’s-seen-everything kind of way. Like, “Opah, there’s one of those screams in my ear again… sister? Brother? Sister. My sister…”

      • Cynthia says:

        I’m guessing your brother looks calm because he was causing it.

  24. senora_jennifer says:

    I love the expressions on the other siblings’ faces, as if everything is perfectly normal. 🙂

  26. Cori says:

    I bet he’s pinching her butt. Either that or the photographer called for a Tarzan yell, instead of CHEESE.

  27. Brian says:

    Wedgies. You can expect them. But somehow, you are never fully prepared.

  28. Meatball says:

    What on Earth is he doing to her!? He must be pinching or pulling hair. We definitely need a ” behind the awkwardness” story on this one.

  29. Ian says:

    I’m guessing there is some hair pulling going on here!
