“This picture is of my little sister Noelle and me. This was from sometime in 1996. The fact that I was nine years old is my only excuse for my extraordinary bad outfit.
I loved playing with my baby sister. I am 9 years older than her, so I was able to be more interactive with her as a baby than I had been with my other younger siblings. So I was holding her up in the air over my head, playing ‘airplane.’ The following conversation occurred between my mom and I, moments before this photo was taken:
Mom: Rachel, she just ate, you probably shouldn’t do that.
Rachel: No, she burped she will be fine.
Mom: It really isn’t a good idea.
Rachel: But she is having so much fun.
*Noelle proceeds to spit up all over Rachel’s face*
Rachel: AHHHHHHH! MOM I NEED A TOWEL!
*Mom runs and grabs a camera*
Mom: Told ya.
One of the best examples ever of ‘Mommy Knows Best.'”

“My great idea of giving a dad a surprise portrait of his wife and children didn’t go so well. Oldest son seems depressed and in an urgent need of a restroom. Youngest son is trying to kill the photographer with his glare or is just ticked off about the awful clothes color combination. Middle son trying to give some one in the room the eye. Mother obvious and thinks picture will be great.”

“My dad Larry opened one of the first cell phone stores in Houston Texas and was known as “the cell phone kingpin.” I wish you could have seen the commercial that ran with him on a unicycle.”

“My great-grandmother worked for a photography studio in the 80’s. She was watching us one day and decided to surprise my mother with professional photos of the three of us. This gem was one of the pictures. It’s safe to say that my mother never put this one in a photo frame and it’s the center of family laughter when we bring out the photo albums around the holidays. I love how my sisters look so cute in the corner of the photo while I am in a food coma floating in the sky.”

“From 2005. I had just concluded my mesmerizing performance as Brunhilda. Dad was going through his hair growing phase, which turned him into a hippie Benjamin Franklin. Mom was also going through a phase with her hair. And my sister was so excited to be at my 8th grade play that she couldn’t even keep her eyes open.”
