funny costumes, renaissance fair

The Rennies

This photo was taken in 2007 or 2008. I am the young girl in this my parents made me go to this renaissance fair when I was sick. This day was hot, and my parents made me wear all this old looking heavier clothing. That was not pleasant. My mom is not dressed appropriate for a family picture. My brother is starring away and my dad his smile on his face. What kind of smile is that? And he is wearing sunglasses… I don’t think they had those prescription sunglasses back in the day, Dad.”

awkward christmas, no love family

Arm’s Length

“Surprisingly, not much has changed in the family dynamic since then. Mom still favors the family cat over dad, I still take horrible photos and yes, we’re always this cheery around the holiday season.”

awkward present, half bike

Bikeless

“This is me Christmas morning in 1986. I was ten years old. Apparently, at some point in the future I would get the whole bike. But for now . . .”

awkward dress up, married with children cross dress

Married With Children

“My mom and dad were going to a Halloween party and cross-dressed as Peg and Al Bundy from ‘Married with Children.’ My mom was Al and my dad was Peg. My dad was in his late eighties when this picture was taken. This is my favorite picture of all time.”

funny toys, creepy dolls

Hangtime

“My older sister, Tina, would play with our dolls and hang them from the banister. I don’t think she meant to be morbid with them, she thought she was giving them a ride!”
