It’s easy to get emotional when you have a family that is this supportive.

ROTFLMAO! I want a copy of this to place on my wall, I can’t help but laugh every time I look at this and read it…
I don’t think you should post photos where one of the family members is obviously disabled. Sham on you.
oops, just saw the post from one of the participants. My bad. plus, SHAME not Sham
insert foot here > :O seriously? wow… lol
While all the women came and went…darling Anna remained steadfast.
I can’t even remember what happened, but I have YET to get a good family photo of us. And yes, that dad is hot! Remains hot to this day!
Oh, and it’s definitely not a sneeze.
I’m afraid you all may find the backstory less than compelling: we had been trying to take some nice family photos, and youngest sisterlein was crying about something very stupid, and we were at once laughing at the fact that she was crying about something stupid and the fact that she was bawling openly in front of the self-timed camera.
It’s mom/dad/3 daughters, fwiw.
This may very well be my favorite picture on AFP. I love your family! Not much of an explanation was really needed for me. I could see plainly what transpired here. It is quite obvious that little sister is bawling about something silly and her obviously very loving family is laughing about it. This picture is perfect. I absolutely adore it. She is precious. I am in love with every single person in this picture. <3
Even if it’s just a sneeze, they’re still all looking at just her and laughing, so they wouldn’t be laughing at the sneeze already. Did she say something funny before it? So confused.
That dad IS hot.
“According to what I read, LBJ used to pick up his dogs like this…”
“Enjoy the sunlight. It’s just a quick photo and then you have to go back in the shed”
I’m fairly sure it is a sneeze. I have an almost identical photo of my grandchildren and the five year old has a horrendous look on her face mid-sneeze.
If that’s a sneeze, half a second later the blond was very unhappy.
Honestly, I think it’s a sneeze too. I don’t really think they’d all be laughing if she was hurt.
Isn’t that Linda Hunt?
My 1st thought was that it was professionally staged, expressions seem too perfect, maybe. Dunno, though.
I’m with the rest: What’s goes on here?
Not only laugh at you, but record it for future reference.
What scares me is this is a seriously good photo. Like a magazine add. WTH happened…
Jim Halpert is always closing.
I was thinking they were all siblings, not dad. Looks like it could have been a great picture. I, too, would like to know the “rest of the story”.
I have a feeling she’s crying because she either has gum in her hair or a bird pooped in it when they were trying to take the picture. The family might be laughing as dad tries to scrap the unwanted residue from her hair. I could be wrong– just my guess.
That is what I’m thinking too!
Amanda has it about right, as I remember it. She was whining but then let out a real over the top agonized HOWL shriek that just struck us all as….. very VERY funny
This little girl really looks incredibly unhappy. Did the photo submission come with a backstory? Poor thing… ::sniff!::
Maybe that IS her “laughing” face
I feel really bad for her. I doubt it was her that posted this picture. definitely interested in a backstory!
Dad: “That’s right honey, You’re getting locked back into the closet after the photo.”
Sisters: “She’s so funny”
And people wonder why the youngest in the family always grows up to be angry and resentful and refuses to visit at Christmas.
AMEN to that!! LOLOL…
Try being the youngest; angry and resentful, and having to HOST Christmas. And people wonder why I hate the holidays. 😉
Either she’s a drama queen or her family finds her pain amusing, or she’s sneezing. I hope she’s sneezing.
If it’s a sneeze the sister in front is about to get a mouth full… Where is THAT picture? LOL
The curse of the read headed step child.
this made me snort, lol
What is happening?
that is art
Emma, can we PLEASE have the story behind this awkwardness?
“Every party has a pooper, that’s why we invited you….”
To be fair he is stepping on her foot!
Nothing more satisfying as a father than looking right down at your children and laughing at them.
this NEEDS a backstory!!!! 😀
“We’re not laughing with you, we’re laughing at you…”
The day Carrie began to turn bad…
sure, go ahead, make fun of her, dont buy her a pair of shoes, pull her hair and in a few years when she reenacts Lizzie Borden then you wont be laughing.
I’d be crying too if someone yanked all my teeth out.
Cut to a scene 20 years later… Sister is now 6’2 and muscular. She’s yanking his hair back. Who’s laughing now dad? Who’s laughing?
I just had to laugh at this comment because my lil brother who was nothing but a toothpick is now 6 foot 2 and 250 pds of muscle..
thanks for the laugh
I’ve no comment except: Backsory PLEASE!
What the HELL???!!!!
I hear it was a series of sneezing- this particular sneeze was just timed well…(or not)
Perhaps they just all gave her a “hurts donut.”
HAHAHA!! We used to give/get hurts donuts all the time…and the kicker was my Dad worked worked Hertz..thanks for the laugh and the old memory!!
I had never heard of a hurts donut until I got married and my last name is now hurst.
