Christmas With Befana

“One year old me, Santa in furry slippers and the most disturbing and scary Befana ever. Italy, 1996 (In Italy the Befana is supposed to be an old, kind woman who deliver gifts to kids on Epiphany eve).”

Llama Drama

“I picked out our annual family ornament after a couple of drinks. Apparently you have to be drunk for these to look like llama legs, because when I unwrapped it to hang it up they definitely did not.”

When Pigs Fly

“My mother’s attempt at a Christmas card photo circa 1994. The family pig Petunia would have none of it and attacked my younger brother while my other brother looks on gleefully.”

Double Trouble

“I tried to get some Christmas card photos with my boys this year. My 5 year old was NOT having it and refused to cooperate. He’s glaring and has puffy, red eyes in most of them, but this one took the cake for me since the baby is puking as well.”
