It was a nice day at the park. My girls and I had just walked a couple of miles. They looked so pretty I just had to snap a picture. Maybe I should’ve picked a better background? (submitted by Sherry)
“We were trying to create a winter wonderland scene and save money by shooting our own picture. We ended up with almost 90 photos that all looked like this, so we just went with it and this year I got actual requests to post this card.”

“It was the day of my senior pictures and the photographer decided we should get a sibling picture (he’s 3 years younger than me). My mom hadn’t made him wear anything special and he was just in an athletic T-shirt and shorts. So the photographer had the brilliant idea that we could just do it with a beach background and he could just take his athletic shirt off. This is how she posed us… apparently, we needed to be “real close” siblings. We got the pictures back and she had made us look like star-crossed lovers gazing into the sunset with awkward hand placement! Needless to say it never got framed or handed out with my senior pictures!”

“My big sister and I, 21 years later… my diapers had to be duct taped because I would take them off.”

“This photo says it all. My oldest brother was and still is the quiet one. My middle brother was always getting in trouble and speaking his mind, and I am still the little sister who sees the good in every situation and always with a smile.”

“That’s me on the left in the sailor suit on the left, and my brother, smiling and content, on the right. In my humble opinion one of the best examples of late 1980s Sears family portrait photos you’ll ever see.
Apparently, no amount of rattle toys and funny voices could shake me out of the existential crisis I was clearly going through at the moment this picture was taken. Or maybe it was just the indignity of that sailor suit. Either way, my brother, on the right, was clearly just fine with the whole procedure.
Ever since this picture was taken it has brought joy to all who see it. When I lived with house mates we had this picture posted in our kitchen with the caption, ‘You might have had a bad day, but at least you’re not as sad as this baby.’”
