    The Borden Family. Sister Lizzie with her favorite hatchet.

    “You’ll hack your eye out”

  3. Jaylowlita says:

    When my sister goes to sleep I will snatch the hat off her head and chop her doll into a million pieces then VICTORY WILL BE MINE….wahaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  4. Stephanie says:

    This is not the summer of love.

  5. Biribi says:

    Love at first sight!!! I just ADORE this family!!!

  6. Rachel says:

    I was just wondering, what is the name of the father in this picture, I think I may know this man.

  7. gina says:

    I’ve seen many strange things on this site… this one doesn’t seem so strange. Looks family from the 70s with a little boy who is probably a boyscout and a litle girl who likes dolls… Not every kid with a hatchet is a budding axe murderer.

  8. Root 66 says:

    So…would that be “Molly’s Hatchet?”

  9. Newton says:

    My name is Tina and you will like me. If you don’t like me I will get you with my axe!

  10. Amy says:

    Hey, I had that doll…one of my all-time favorite Christmas gifts as a kid! I did not, however, have a fabulous pink, fluffy hat, although I would have coveted that girl’s hat if I had seen it!

  11. lulu says:

    nice pimp hat on dad

  12. Michelle says:

    Is Dan Aykroyd the dad?

  13. CarrieM says:

    I love this photo. Classic Americana, right down to the shadow of the photographer who made everyone else squint into the sun.

  14. Chazz says:

    Hey! When you got a hatchet and canteen for Christmas you were SET man! AWESOME!!! Brings back the old days.

  15. Janet says:

    I had a Dancerina doll too. In fact I still have her, unless her head got chopped off!

  16. Stephanie says:

    Pretty sure I got blue ice skates from Montgomery Wards that year.

  17. Mary says:

    I thought that was an ice scraper! But I’m from Wisconsin where that would be normal for this time of year!

    • Silfax says:

      Judging from the nice green grass, that would be mid June?
      Probably about right for ice scrapers in Wisconsin

      • Kim says:

        I don’t think they would have all those coats on if it was mid-June, even in Wisconsin.
        But my mind is wondering if this family didn’t wind up being hacked to death by that little hatchet some time in the near future. He looks a little too happy to be showing it off.

      • Simon says:

        That grass is definitely too lush for Xmas. Odd!

        • Biribi says:

          Well actually I’m in the southern part of Ontario in Canada and we just had a green Christmas that looked a bit like that, so it’s possible.

  18. dogbreath says:

    eh, what’s awkward about this?

    • MichaelHag says:

      I don’t know, could be the entire photo is a snapshot of late 60’s hilarity. Could be there’s a boy holding an ax. I like the Dad’s hat, myself. Just look at Mom and the way she saucily holds her head, delicious! Love this photo!

  19. Sarah says:

    I bet this is Christmas photo. Everyone is showing off their favorite gift they just opened. Mom got a fancy new coat. Little girl got a ballerina Doll. Dad got his stylin new hat (which he doesn’t seem overly excited about) and the little boy in blue got a new hatchet and cantine for camping or boyscouts.

  20. kin says:

    “as far as everyone knows, we’re a nice normal family”!

  21. martha ann martell says:

    The child on the left is a boy.

  22. Teresa says:

    Oh my goodness! I had the exact same doll! I am so old…

  23. sandrat says:

    The dad looks like a younger Stephen King!

  24. teehee says:

    Awesome pic!!

  25. Simon says:

    Tell me, what decade would it have been appropriate to wear a Robin Hood red felt hat?

  26. Tim S says:

    Lizzie Borden wants to practice on her sister’s Chatty Cathy.

  27. Cpt. Haddock says:

    Nice, the kids holding a hatchet.

  28. DanBus says:

    Lizzie Borden’s favorite Christmas present!

  29. ken says:

    wow, the dad is a dead ringer for dan alkroyd

  30. njfitz61 says:

    And…and this canteen, that’s all I need!

  31. Vickie says:

    Is that an ax the little girl has? Scary.

  32. MsFlagWrapper says:

    They are SO sophisticated!

  33. Matt Heldman says:

    Is that Dan Aykroyd?

  34. Fred Melchor says:

    Looks like thy are off to harvest the perfect Christmas tree.

  35. Holly says:

    OH!! I LOVED my Dancerina doll!!!

    • Remy says:

      It was my favorite Christmas present ever!!

    • LKT says:

      OMG. I forgot all about my Dancerina! Didn’t even recognize her in the pic! And to think I begged Santa for one in 4th grade. All I could see was the sister had an offical Girl Scout canteen and probably an offical Girl Scout hatchet. So cool! 🙂
