61 Pins

“Our daughter was in gymnastics and her hands were very calloused.  She thought she would see how many stick pins she could insert into the callouses.  She ended up with 61!  Makes a mother proud.”

Sneer For The Camera

“I just love the contrast between my mother’s sweet, Madonna-like appearance and my father’s menacing look.  My sister is the wide-eyed innocent in this photograph, while I am the disconsolate girl in the gingham dress.”

The Family Tree

“This is a photo from my brother’s Bar Mitzvah. I am guessing it was the photographer’s attempt at an “arty” photo.”

Foxy Lady

“My priest owns an African Fennic Fox and decided to bring her to my wedding. Well, this normally tame awesome little creature, which I had met & held the day before, decided to go buck-wild & climb up my neck. Thankfully (I think), my wedding photographer caught it on camera. I was mostly scared it would scratch my gown but it just scratched up my chest…which prompted my awesome priest to say ‘Oh sorry, she scratched your boobs up.’ That’s my husband on the right laughing nervously & not saving me btw :)”

Oh, Shirt

“My 14 year old daughter forgot it was school picture day.  Normally would have fixed her hair and dressed nice.  On this day she wore a Nike shirt that said “Just Do It.” Good thing for us, her hair covered the rest of the shirt and left STD. It’s going in the yearbook!”
