awkward family photos

dear emily,

i'm probably going to get in trouble with someone, but desperate times
call for desperate measures.  whenever i really need to be cheered up,
 i suspect others might, too.  here are  some of my favorite photos from
"awkward family photos."

"will you marry me, alice?"



"only if we can have our bridal party photo in our favorite tree."




"or if we can use your mom's awesome draperies."




"and if you go to billy ray's barber."





love,
lea

The drapery-dresses have me humming the theme to "Gone with the Wind".

And the Billy Ray picture? Creepiest wedding picture. Ever.

Thanks for the laugh!

That is one of my kids favorite sites, I am always afraid they are going to get our our old photo albums and put some on there. What is up with the gals wearing dresses the same as the drapes? Having a little Scarlett O'Hara moment? I am glad you are feeling a bit better. I am still praying. How about some fried chicken?

Sonja said...

HA! Draperies are over the top! :)

I love that site! Good, good laughs to be found in that treasure chest. Thanks for reminding me about it - b/c I had somehow forgotten all about it.

ROTFL!!!!!!! You made my week hon!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Lea my sweet, thank you for reading my article in Belle Inspiration! HOW EXCITING! My week in teaching has left me fatigued, weary, full of tears that I have not even had a chance to read my copy of the magazine. BUT....this weekend is MINE! AND, God is gracious. I hope to write a skillfully written account of His mercy on me yesterday as I spent the early morning preparing for my students, in tears. I called out to Him, and He came....do come back and share my joy as I witnessed just a wee miracle, but one nonetheless.

GREAT FAMILY PHOTOS!!! That tree, where is that??

Bises, Anita

Girl Meets Paris said...

Thanks for the smiles!!!!! Reminds me of course when Scarlet pulled those drapes down at Tara... and the skit Carol Burnet did where she wore then drapery rod across her shoulders along with the drapes... GOOD TIMES!

Alicia said...

LOL...those are hilarious!!!!

Jenny said...

You are a gem! Thanks for the chuckle.

Brenda Leyland said...

I LOVED that............. the drapery dresses remind me of drapes my mom had in the living room when I was a kind in the early '60s!

Now I'm reminded of Scarlett's green velvet drapery dress.... and the take on it with Carol Burnett. Did you ever see that clip? I bet it's on youtube.

Still LOL.........
