Spider Girls

“My sister (the legs in the picture) and I (the face) were taking dance pictures and the photographer wanted us to strike our favorite pose. Needless to say, we came home with an entertaining conversation piece!”

Wear & Stare

“Glamour shots at Zellers in the mid nineties. My sister kept blinking when they took the photo so they told her to keep her eyes open.”

Lesson Learned

“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*
*click*
Mom: Told ya.

One of the best examples ever of ‘Mommy Knows Best.'”

Father’s Day Disaster

“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.”

Cellular

“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.”
