    It’s from the 80’s. Otherwise a lovely family photo. I don’t get the head banging reference.

    Can someone help me figure out how I know this family? I can’t place where I know them from. I lived in CA, Albany GA, Beaufort SC, and Virginia Beach, VA (military brat). All 3 girls look sooooo familiar.

    The headbanger looks like Carrie Mulligan.

    Who posted this picture, I want answers!
    I’m the tiny kid in this picture.
    And my mom still looks fantastic she’s almost 50 and looks 37!

  9. RockinPreppyCut says:

    They’re such a nice looking family really. If only they hadn’t caught Eighties. *sniff* Truly tragic!

  10. I had those same clearish pink glasses and the same denim jacket at that age.

    I grew up with these people lol.
    Actually they lived two doors down from me lol.
    Never laughed so hard in my life!!
    Hello Kugler family!!!

  13. Jen says:

    I love it! Looking back, maybe we weren’t as fashionable as we all thought we were. That family looks like every family I knew back in the 80’s.

    they see me rollin…

  15. Julie says:

    I think it’s a cute picture!

  16. Ginger says:

    Now that there’s what you call a precision mullet. Nine-0!

  17. Lori says:

    I have a family photo like this except 100x worse, but my husband refuses to let me submit it. 🙁

  18. Eva says:

    Awesome…in mom’s hair, you can see the carefully delineated rows where the curling iron made its marks.

  19. Patti says:

    Mom looks to be about 12 years old!

    The poor little girl in the middle almost got cut out.

  21. HeatherW says:

    When you aren’t sure what type of fashion statement to make, always opt for the “Cosby sweater”.

  22. Suzanne Ajir says:

    OMG! I just threw out an pair of sheets that look just like the little girl on the rights dress. Love the mom’s up-do!

  23. magillicuddy says:

    is Mom wearing a dress made from carpet?

  24. carolrofl says:

    Ah, the awkward 80’s. Everyone wore prints and didn’t notice that none went together in the photo. Except little Suzie who sensibly chose the acid-wash jeans jacket.
