The Fight Before Christmas - Christmas

The Fight Before Christmas

“Our annual family pictures used to be very stressful events, but 1998 took the cake. In this picture, I had just taken a Santa doll from my sister. She retaliated by slapping me and taking the doll back. I was clutching my face and my dad flipped her over his shoulder just as the automatic timer went off. All my mom could do was stand by helplessly.”

Ghost  Boy - Family Portrait

Ghost Boy

“Grandma wanted family photos of all her kids, so she dragged us to JC Penney’s. (No one wanted to do it.) The photographer was so disengaged that she didn’t notice my nephew sneaked into our picture, and we didn’t notice until we got all the prints back. We call this ‘ghost boy.'”

Mom’s Prom Date - Mom

Mom’s Prom Date

“Unbeknownst to Mother we hired a stripper for my sister’s bachelorette party. At first Mother was shocked and horrified, but after a night of completely inappropriate behavior (girls behaving badly), Mother loosened up a bit and joined in the fun. So much so that she decided to take a picture with the stripper! And being the good catholic girl that she is, she felt this was a perfectly acceptable pose…It is now affectionately known as her prom picture. Go Mom!”
