“This is a photo of my dad back in 84 or 85. Those were one of his many pairs of daisy dukes. Both him and my grandpa had a matching pair of ones with rainbows on the sides. I was always embarrassed when they would attempt to take me out in public while they were wearing them.”

“For my parents 20th anniversary, my mom decided to dress up in her wedding dress and get our family Christmas photos done in front of the place they were married. I’m the girl bending over trying to hold down my brother who wanted to get away for obvious reasons. Needless to say, it was not everything my mom had hoped for.”

“My cousins got together for a Christmas family photo. Everyone was asked to wear their best outfit. Needless to say, it was open to interpretation for one of my cousins.”

“When I was a kid, my mom, who is a seamstress, would make funky gifts every year for Christmas. Some time in the late 80s, she got her hands on some giant men’s underwear and made sports bra’s out of them. Hence, my two aunts and grandma modeling them on Christmas Eve. This is just one of many awkward Christmas eve photos.”

Christmas of 1982. I was 2 years old and obviously not the favorite child. My only option was to take a “back seat” to my sister, Meghan (age 5) if I wanted to sled ride, even if it meant riding on my stomach down the slope. Apparently this was seemed like a safe idea to my dad (pictured) and my mom who snapped this shot! This picture pretty much sums up the next 30 years of my life.
