Christmas

Turqlenecks

“It was the 80s. My dad thought it was a good idea to take a picture in the woods with snow. The look on his face doesn’t validate the brilliance of the idea. Mom chose the color of our shirts. Apparently she expected more of a tropical setting.”

The Nutcracker

“I work at a ballet school and kids often present artwork to their favorite teachers for the holidays…like this masterpiece of a nutcracker, with his sword.”

Tub Love

“My parents like to make our Christmas cards ‘one to remember,’ so they came up with this idea. Two parents, seven kids, all in my parents bathtub! One of my brothers turned on the shower while we were all in there and no one could move to get out.”

The Year Of Burgundy

“Each year, our family bought new outfits to color coordinate with the Christmas tree. 1988 was the year of burgundy. My dad did such a fantastic job with the lighting for this photo, it’s almost as though he was a professional photographer. Evidently, I was the only one truly happy to be there. I knew the Nintendo Power Pad was waiting for me under that tree.”

Wunderbras

“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.”

The Appetizer

“I was five and my brother was 18 months old and he thought candles were probably something interesting to eat.”

Oh Deer

“My great-great grandpa had a pet deer and a pet bear. Guess the bear was in the woods.”
