Uncles, Aunts, & Cousins

Total Princess Move

“It was 1999. My grandparents were visiting from Texas and brought me and my cousins all matching t-shirts to get professional photos taken. I refused to wear anything but this. It’s hard being the Kim Kardashian of the family.”

Downsized

“My brother and his ex wife separated. Afterwards, we didn’t have a family photo without her that included my son. This was my Opa’s solution: cutting out a photo of my son and pasting it into the family photo that was taken the year before the ex came around.”

56 Problems

“Me (left), my cousin and my sister got identical jogging suites and fanny packs from our grandmother for Christmas 1991. We already had identical hair cuts. My cousin is forcing my sister to smile by pinching my sisters hand.”

The Masked Santa

“This was 1969 or 1970. I think the masked Santa was my Great Uncle Louie. He liked his beer. I don’t have an explanation for why my parents thought this was okay.”

The Cock Bomb

Uncle Dale’s Run For The Border

“This is a shot of my husband and I leaving our wedding reception and heading to Mexico for our honeymoon. My very inebriated Uncle Dale walked up as we were leaving, tapped on my new husband’s window, and yelled out ‘If y’all go to Taco Bell, bring me back a taco!’ Unfortunately, we missed out on getting a shot of him dancing to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ in the courtyard by himself…”

The Main Squeeze

“My uncle, gently holding me as an infant. Tiny me doesn’t look very comforted.”

Happy Bean Day

“My mom and my cousin. And no, those aren’t candles on the sad looking birthday cake.”
