Grandma

Don’t You Forget About Me

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.”

#5

“This is the photo of my grandmother holding me just hours after I was born. Clearly she was enthused about the arrival of her 5th grandchild.”

Camera Ready

It’s A Miracle

“This is a photo of my husband (standing on the right) at age 9 attentively watching his Grandmother change his young cousin’s diaper. I can’t decide what’s more hilarious: the fact that he’s wearing a dust mask, or the open jar of miracle whip on the table. LOL!!”

Done With Pictures

“Please notice this excellent photo of my family featuring a cranky grandma, an exhausted mother, a cardboard cut out of a brother who couldn’t be in attendance, and the general sense that everyone has been DONE with taking pictures for at least an hour.”

When In Germany

“This is me and my sister (on the left behind the 2 women). Together with my grandmother and dad we attended the wedding of my grandmothers’ niece in Germany (we are from the Netherlands). The photo was taken around 1984/1985. The art on the wall…timeless.”

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.”
