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.”

Hanging Out With Dad

“My family and I in Yosemite. I was four years old and my Mom left my Dad and brother in charge of babysitting while she went off hiking. They seemed awfully proud of their handiwork when she got back. The odd thing was that my mom agreed to take the picture while I hung there.”

Elevation

“My brother broke his arm so bad that he had to sleep with a wooden stick attached to him to keep it elevated. Clearly Mom found this to be a great opportunity take a photo, and she asked me to get in there too.”

Coke Classic

“This is a photo of me and my brother in 1978. It was taken by our father the year before my parents’ divorce. My Mom hates it and even though i do not support the use of drugs I think this photo is special and definitely something you could only get away with in the 70’s.”
