Happy Holidaze

“I was 45 minutes into family pictures with two hungry and crabby kiddos. Nothing was good. The photographer asked me five times if I really wanted to buy the pics and I said absolutely yes. This was my most popular Christmas picture ever.”

Schall’s Balls

“This was our Christmas card circa 1987/1988. I am the little girl who is embarrassed and ashamed to be with her family in front of the family owned limo wearing our family bowling shirts. Our team was called Schall‘s Balls. After our last name.”

The Placeholder

“This was my parent’s pregnancy announcement in 1991 a couple months before my birth. My dad saved the cardboard outline and gave it to me before the birth of my first child.”

Blue Christmas

“This is my ex-boyfriend’s family. c.1964. He and his twin brother and sisters and Dad are “enjoying” Santa’s visit. They lived in Red Lodge, Montana in the day, so perhaps a more realistic St. Nick was hard to come by.”

Clown Clause

“This picture was taken in December of 1969 in Sherman Oaks, CA . That is me at the age of 6 months. He was this frightening Santa that would visit my grandmother and grandfather’s house every Christmas. To me he looks deranged.'”

The Mask

“My dad would always dress in this creepy Santa costume. It didn’t take us long to figure out it was him because he always wore his work boots with the costume.”

Manger Danger

“Christmas, 1997. My baby sister was being held up by my dad through a hole cut in the sheet and he was shouting at my mom to take the picture.”
