Holiday Medley

“For our annual Christmas card one year, my dad decided it would be a good idea to showcase ALL of the holidays.  Sancho the dog is Arbor Day.”

They See Me Rollin’

“A couple of years ago my daughter had surgery on both of her legs over Christmas break. Tired of being cooped up in the house she decided last minute she wanted to go to a Christmas party with her church youth group. We scrambled for ideas for the costume competition and settled on her being a ballerina from The Nutcracker (her sister went as a nutcracker). This was taken midway through the party when I’m pretty sure she was exhausted and maybe the pain meds started wearing off.  Either way, her friends decided to make her a bit more festive and this is the end result.”

Memory

“This wasn’t for Halloween. I dressed up like this every day after school and danced to the musical ‘Cats’ for about a year.”

Sad Candid Camera

“My brother was trying to get a good picture of me and my girls for the annual Christmas card. This was in between shots. Little one looks like she saw something she should not have.”

This Guy

“For me, 7th grade school photos were a trip to flavor town.”

Guess Who’s The Stepson

“This is a 1987 Christmas morning aftermath with me, my 6-month-old son Nathan, my 12-year-old son Justin and my 17-year-old stepson Damond. Damond looks thrilled with his present of a new Heater/Fan.”

Dad Got Game

“My boyfriend and his son and I went to a restaurant called The Tilted Kilt in Indianapolis. Didn’t notice the expression of distaste on his son’s face in the background until I posted it on Facebook. Needless to say we got more comments on that than anything else. Not sure what was going through his head, either “That’s gross!” or “Why not me?!”

Merry Gothmas

“This photo is from the year my family got a German Shepherd puppy and more importantly the year I discovered the deep darkness of the soul and Bauhaus. My mom got a coupon for a free family/pet photo from the local Petco and dragged us there for our family Christmas card photo. Since it was free we didn’t get to pick which photo we got, so even though I smiled for like a dozen shots THIS was the one they sent us, probably because the teenager working the booth found it as funny as I do now. I got in so much trouble for it at the time, but I had totally forgotten about it until this season when my mom found it and sent it to me. Luckily she finds it funny now, but I guess since I never stopped wearing all black or listening to music performed by morose skeletons, she has had 20 years to get used to it.”

Finding The Funny

“Our parents got divorced, then remarried, then divorced again. This was the best holiday card my sister and I could do.”

AFP Loves This Family

“My hubby is a teacher. I’m a stay-at-home Mom. We have 5 kiddos, 4 of them adopted through foster care. A long time ago, I heard our pastor point out that when it comes to kids, rules without relationship = rebellion. From that day forward, I made a promise to myself to always make relationship with our kids a priority. And that means having fun with them and having a sense of humor. We want to teach our kids that being able to laugh at yourself (not in a bad, degrading way, but in a good way) is a wonderful attribute. So, we always do crazy photos for our Christmas cards. This year, we decided to make an awkward family photo.”
