“Friends used to nickname my hubby ‘The Wookie’. When it finally came time to giving birth to our eldest we thought it would be hilarious to take pics of me in labour with a Wookie mask on. God knows what the hospital staff were thinking :)”

“I decided that we should all jump into the pool after our beach photo shoot while in Hilton Head Island, SC. Everyone was excited about the idea. The instructions– kick your legs to your butt so it looks like we’re jumping high (pool wasn’t that deep). Two weeks later we get pics back from photog and my sister looks like she’s being tortured! Her response: ‘Well, I couldn’t figure out how to jump while holding hands! And how in the heck is everyone smiling and looking at the camera?! I look ridiculous.’ Yes, sister, you do. but we still love you.

“The day before picture day my mother decided to cut my hair… my curly hair… my long curly hair into what she thought was ‘cute layers’ instead I was given an epic mullet.”

“This was the unfortunate result of a 6 year old’s spelling mistake. My daughter and my niece had the idea that they wanted to make a lemonade stand. Being the innovative 6 year old she is, my daughter felt that it would be even better to make it an online lemonade stand. Naturally they needed a great design and catchy name for their webpage… this is what she came up with. For a couple days, she carried this around to show everyone we know and each time she presented it I laughed so hard that I cried. She kept asking me why I was laughing, so I just said that it was because it made me that happy to see what great job she did. (I have a feeling that that website domain may have already been taken.)”
