Grandma

Tiger Twins

“I’m not sure what’s more awkward. The matching tiger print overalls my grandmother made us…or the expressions on my grandma and cousin’s face from all of my protesting over these photos. This is the best we got.”

Ten Pack

“This is a photo of my great-grandma and all of her great-grand children. Sears must have been having a special or something because I (front row, pink dress) remember waiting in line for a very long time before it came for our turn to have our picture taken. This explains all the children’s bored/upset faces. It was miserable at the time, but now it’s a funny and iconic family photo.”

The Stand-In

“This is my Dad’s family in 1991 and the photo was hanging in my grandma’s house for years with the caption written underneath. Oh the things you did before Photoshop.”

Gimme Some Sugar

“This is a picture from our wedding day. After the ceremony, we dismissed the pews and when my new husband leaned down to kiss my Grandma on the cheek, I think he got a little more than he bargained for!”
