Thanksgiving Meltdown

“That’s me with the curls. Apparently not being allowed to stay at the table was enough to warrant a complete meltdown at the family Thanksgiving meal. Everyone else is doing a great job of ignoring me.”

“C” Is For “Creepy”

“Found this gem while digitizing the family photos. It was taken sometime in the late 70s in Des Moines, Iowa. I’m the little guy with Cookie Monster and my brother, who’s sole comment upon seeing this photo was, ‘miss that hat.'”

Every Picture Tells A Story

“Normally my son takes great school pictures. This year he did not deliver. Needless to say we did not purchase the pictures.”

Brotherly Love

“This pretty much sums up life with boys. My wife and I couldn’t get through one photo shoot for the fam without them beating the crap out of each other.”

Waste Management

“I get it, the 70’s were a bit different. But one photo explains my lifetime of poor self-esteem.”

Orange Snowman

“We decided to be creative and decorate our snowman with food coloring. The snow did not roll well into balls so we had to pack the snow instead. We were so excited to get it colored that we didn’t realize the shape it had taken until after we stepped back to see the finished product!”

Welcome To The Dollhouse

“This is a photo of me when I was about 2 years old around Christmas time. I’m at a house that was decorated every year with hundreds of dolls in various Christmas-themed scenes, but what a pyramid of dolls has to do with Christmas, I don’t know. I don’t remember this at all, so I must have blocked out the creepiness.”

Journey To The Center Of The Earth

“My class had to do a project where we were a living museum. Somehow, my ‘exhibit’ was the Earth itself. This was the end result, and I’m so proud of this picture I have it framed in my apartment to confuse guests.”

A Spoonful

“This is me back in ’93 at the Brantford Skating Carnival. The show was beauty and the beast, and I was a piece of cutlery (a spoon). I had to wear a horrible white unitard, and everyone said I looked like a toilet seat. The worst part is when we were on the ice, it glowed in the dark!”

The Tiger Claw

“My youngest cousin was REALLY into karate when he was a little boy, and would go around showing us his “tiger claw” and threatening to use is against all of his older family members.”
