“My sister-in-laws, back in the day, couldn’t have been prouder of their snowman creation. I’m sure theirs was the tallest in town, and it is obvious they used every scrap of snow they could find.”

“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.”

“My younger brother in his ‘awkward yet fabulous’ phase. Please note the following:
1. Western-style shirt with Christmas-star-snowflake ornament….
2. One exposed skate (just to prove that you’re wearing skates?).
3. Indestructible plastic-frame glasses because, of course, the parents were worried about their child breaking the stylish/expensive ones.
4. Gold lamé fabric bringing out the most unsympathetic tones in the ginger kid’s skin and hair.”

“That’s me in the picture, taken in the early 90s at a local children’s carnival, after we waited in line to meet the characters of the Jungle Book. When we got to the front of the line, I was terrified but after waiting that whole time my parents made me pose.”
