She just wanted to celebrate the Fall.

I LOVE this pic! The little girl is hardcore. The mom is attractive and I dig her outfit. I also wondered why Dad was wearing a sweatshirt and everybody else was dressed up.
The OG Planker!! 🙂 LOL
OMG!!! I can’t get over this pic. At first I didn’t even notice her. She honestly looks dead. It’s so freaky!! LOL! I can so see myself pulling something like this when I was younger.
She’s planking retrostyle! This is where it all began… 🙂
hahaha!! thats the second thing i thought of… after i thought she was throwing a tantrum and proving her point.
Maybe it’s a “Weekend At Bernie’s” kind of thing.
That is one of the funniest comments I’ve ever read here!
It’s done. You may stand up now!
that’s creepy, like, The Ring creepy…although I do get the impression that she is throwing a temper tantrum
I’ll bet you’re 100% right on the tantrum, that looks like the sort of thing I enjoyed doing about 50 years ago!
“Well, we told you not to climb that tree.”
the best one so far! i cant stop laughing!!!
Re: That is not how I typed it the first time, Note to self, do not use the left and right arrows! Here is what I was trying to say…
Lil Susie, :steps..THUD!: “Okay, who was the smartazz that tied my shoelaces together?” Lil Billy, :hee hee: Lil Bobby, :snicker snicker: Mom Oblivious to it all, “Smile kids!!” Dad, “Awww jeeze not again?! I need a beer and to get out of this uncomfortable sweatshirt and get into my REAL comfy clothes. Screw lil Suzie, she can stay there for all I care and where the heck is my BEER??!!
Sadly, Janie died of embarassment
Hahahhaahhahahahahahah! What happened to the poor girl?
just sat there laughing solidly for a good while. brilliant. :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)::):)
Now she’s taking a faceplant too far.
The best part was when I brought this up, I had to scroll down a little to see the funny part. I was looking at it going “this doesn’t look so…..Bwahhhahahahahahahaha
OH MY GOD! That’s a kid??!!!! I thought it was someone’s coat.
The parents knew little Suzy only had one leg, and this wasn’t the first time they caught her trying to “Hop-away” from home !!!
I just figured out that is a kid. I thought it was the Thanksgiving turkey they just went and shot! lol
” Hey,a rabbit’s hole….if I just reach in a little,WHOAAAAA, AAAARRGHHH,HEEEELLLP !!!”
LM*AO thats so funny, she win!
“Daddy, I don’t want to be in the picture… I need to go pee…”
“ANYONE ELSE NOT IN THE MOOD FOR A FAMILY PIC?… NO?… THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT?”
When this family says “Don’t wear white after Labour Day”. THEY MEAN IT!
narcolepsy maybe????? Funny pic!
I think she is appalled over her dad’s choice of outfits. I mean the boys are in ties, she has a dress and her dad is – all – sporting a sweatshirt and shades. Come on – couldn’t he wear a cosby sweater or something? Jeez.
This is why you should always wear orange vests when you take family photos during hunting season.
Maybe it’s her idea of getting her folks to say cheese. Although the father doesn’t quite approve positively.
She tried and tried to tell them her heart belonged to Romeo. They refused to believe, until her wedding day.
Drama queens start young. And mom just keeps on posing!
I get the impression that perhaps she was flying overhead and they shot her down. I’m guessing this is a trophy picture.
I laughed so hard at this comment…I had an image of one of those flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz!
On another note, why are Sons wearing ties and Dad is wearing a mere sweatshirt?
she digging a hole to China in the ground with her tongue. really–you didn’t know that?
Oh, this is the best yet!
Mom: OK! One kid down and you’re next, Teel-Shirted-Son! Mwaaa Haaa HAaa!
It does look like she is about to shove him.
That’s my family photo! I hated the dress my mother made me wear that day…I guess that was my way of rebelling.
Falling face down in the grass like that must have made you a might itchy.
Honestly, I can’t even remember. We took a whole bunch of pictures that day after a wedding and they couldn’t even keep me still in any of the shots until the very last one. There were a couple of me running around in front of the camera when my grandparents were posing so I looked like a white blur…and me doing a superhero stance in one photo. It was pretty great. I had no idea I started being so weird that young.
Hey Victoria. You wrote that “they couldn’t even keep” you still. From the evidence, I’d say that they would have needed ropes and tranquiliser darts, which may have been misunderstood by the local child protection people. 😉 And from everyone’s reaction, that wasn’t the first time you did that sort of thing.
Oh, by the way, your mom is gorgeous. I bet you look like her, maybe a little? Was that awkward?
I do look a bit like her, yes! And no, it’s not the first time. I’ve done some weird stuff…like go run up to my dad’s boss at some work party and wrap myself around his leg. I’m even weirder now 😉
Hope I didn’t post too many times on this. Yeah, I look like her. I’m also weirder now than back then so it is a normal thing 😉
This is so perfect, it’s exactly the kind of thing my daughter would pull. You are not weird, you are wonderful! I’m sure your mom is so proud of that independent spirit!
you say it was after a wedding? wearing white isn’t as much a crime as wearing a freakin’ sweatshirt to a wedding. besides, i can guarantee the front to the dress was green. you weren’t throwing a fit, you just ran out of sugar, quick give her a piece cake!!
Seriously, if i was the bride, i would have stopped in the aisle next to the father and said “really??? really?? i paid $30 a head for your family to come to my wedding and you wear a freakin’ sweatshirt?? go home and change, NOW!!. i’ll wait here until you get back!!”
HA! One of my 1st thoughts (after figuring out it’s a kid, not an animal or coat) was “Funny how mom made the boys sport a tie & dad got away with his Saturday football-watching attire!
Good strategy! Grass stains are real hard to get out.
so, im curious, did your family end up with a photo of all of you together, standing up looking somewhat happy, or is this the one that ended up on the mantle?
Love backstories! Question: What’s on your Dad’s shirt?
Oh man, I remember that sweater so well and yet I can’t remember what’s on it. I can bet you money he probably still has it in his dresser at home though.
LOL, of course!
You rock Victoria.
What the world needs though, is a real close up look at this picture. I need to see the expressions on your family’s face(s) as well as a close up of you. Need.
My one brother pointed out that my other sibling was stifling a laugh or it appeared that way. They just dealt with it…was waaaay out of their control lol.
You were like Ghandi with the non-violent resistance.
Ohhhm….ohhhmmm….I will just lay here in peaceful resistance until it’s time to go hohhhmmmme……ohhhmmm
so glad you’re alive!
You shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day, everyone knows that, except, apparently, Suzy. She took it hard.
Diva in the making…
I think she just got tired of the so-called photographer fiddling with the tripod and buttons and knobs and trying to focus…
She’s Andrew Wyeth’s Christina. Creepy!
LOL! That picture has been in my parents’ living room ever since I can remember – FLASHBACK!
I immediately thought of Christina too! I wonder if that’s the image they were going for.
This made me laugh. out. loud.
“There was no drama at all in the family. Then Jenny was born.”
Okay, that actually made me snort I was laughing so hard.
Your comment made me laugh out loud. I have a daughter like that.
Mom and Dad will have a condign, albeit delayed, revenge when they show this picture to her kids. But that will make the revenge all the sweeter!
Whoa, that’s a kid? I thought that was a lazy dog! That’s kinda creepy. Her leg looks all limp and her face is not even visible. What’s the story?
Maybe she has a lazy eye to go with her lazy dog impersonation.
I thought it was a dead dog at first!
OMG – I had no idea what that was either at first.
I thought it was a dog too! I’m glad I’m not the only one!
I thought it was some sort of spaniel! I am still having trouble seeing it is, in fact, a person.
I thought it was a nonchalantly folded coat. Then I thought spaniel dog. Had to come to comments to read that it is a little girl. Not obvious at all.
you are for sure NOT the only one!
I thought it was the family cocker spaniel!
i thought it was a dead dog or object too, but i was afraid to ask…
I thought it was a spaniel with some sort of problem and felt sorry for it. Now that I realize it’s just a kid pitching a hissy I’m not concerned.
It’s Marney as a child……..she wasn’t told the dress code color and wore white, thus feeling completely betrayed! A control freak in the making……..
Marney! That’s a good one!!
I love Marney! I wonder if she knows how funny she is!!!
I wish someone would point the real Marney to this site. I would love her “insight” on the many references to her. It never gets old!!!
No white shoes after Labor Day!!!!
good one! that ones’ for the loyal fans of AFP
Maybe someone shot her with a crossbow?!
Oh, that is a winner!
oh that is funny on so many levels!!!
Totally the winner!!
is it a winner or a WINNterr? haha
there is no way this is missouri, more like CSI: Manchester (there are 30 of them you know). this is definatly a fit, it has my neices name all over it.
I so think she is throwing a fit and they said, “just take the picture ignore her.”
HAH! Same thing I was thinking!
EXACTLY! Been there done that 🙂 Which makes it all the funnier and more awkward!
yep that was my thought too!
Photographer “Hey, I was busy checking my f-stop WHO PUSHED HER DOWN!???!”
I’d say probablyyyy the boy on the left by the look on his face XD
i don’t know, dad has his hands in his pockets like a guilty man!
Isnt that face down girl from The Ring???
my first thought too!
oh my goodness…
Someone took the season “fall” literally.
…that´s great “Someone took the season “fall” literally.”
greetings from (my lovely) Germany
it’s so funny, I can’t stop laughing!
