Grandma

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.”

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.”

Photo Fracas

“Grandmother was taking pics at Sears with her grandkids. The boys were fussy and didn’t want to be there but the girls were great.”

White Wedding

“While looking through my parents wedding album I came across this photo. Apparently, my grandmother didn’t like the picture of herself.”

Cheaper By The Dozen

“This is a family photo circa 1997, of my grandmother and her grandchildren, (including me, the girl on the right in the pink dress and awful knockoff of the ‘Rachel’ haircut.)  Clearly, all of us in the photo are a hot mess, considering not ONE person is looking at the camera, and most of the small children look as if they were subjected to the clown from the movie It, right before the picture was taken.”
