Bachelorette Party

“This was my aunt’s bachelorette party! Not only does my grandma look beautiful, my mom looks mortified. I remember this guy showing up as a cop then my mom making all the kids go play in the back yard! I knew they were all up to something. R.I.P. Grammy I will miss you forever and ever! ”

Surrender

“Our perfect family photo shoot was only a little hampered by my 2 year old granddaughter who decided to throw a complete fit during the sitting. We gave up trying to get her to look good and let her ‘do her own thing.’ She ended up at the bottom of the stairs and we went on without her…so to speak.”

Purple Haze

“One day, back in ’81 or so, MawMaw thought it would be a good idea for us to all enjoy a few glasses of her fermented ‘friendship punch’ before heading down to the photo studio at K-Mart.”
