Siblings

The Minnesota Sweats

“My dad grew up in Minnesota, where the tradition of sweating out your worries (and clearly your soul), in a giant, cedar oven is passed down from each white, pasty, Scandinavian generation to the next.”

Kick In The Crochet

“My brothers and I still cringe when we look at this photo taken of us in 1974. Our mother had been so proud of these outfits that she crocheted for us. This photo was taken on our way to church that morning. Good Lord, what was she thinking!?”

Up

“This photo of my 6 month old brother was taken on my second birthday. Apparently my siblings thought it would be hilarious to tie balloons to all of his limbs and my parents were just like, ‘whatever.’ He was the eighth child, so I guess by then nothing mattered.”

Hobby Hour

‘My mother decided it was cheaper to pose all of us together with our hobbies. Still trying to figure out why my youngest brother was wearing a German outfit.”

Hot Tub Greetings

“My parents just got a hot tub and were very excited about it. Therefore, my grandma hired a professional photographer to take a family photo in the hot tub. For some reason they posed with wine and candles even though the children were not old enough to drink… and sent it out to 150 plus friends as a Christmas card.”

Brotherhead

“This is of my older sister, perfect in all pictures, and older brother’s gigantically chubby head. The photographer thought this was the best picture of the whole shoot. My mom thought it was hilarious and horrifying, so of course she bought it.”

The Permullets

“Our grandma used to not only give my sister and me mullets in the 80s, she would then perm them. Matching permed mullets. Need I say more?”
