As I sit here in the hospital with Romeo…..and am away from my home and the ability to do projects…..I’m filling some of the time with browsing on the internet.
When I am home…I blog in the mornings and don’t really browse other blogs or the internet, so I have been catching up.
Today’s post is strictly for laughs….
These photos are KILLING me!
They are awkward family photos OR AWKWARDLY posed family photos…… that people have submitted and honestly…..well….you just need to see them for yourself.
NOTE FROM ME: I like the jaunty way they posed him with his watch…..you hardly notice he is half naked!
She was reconsidering the extensions.

NOTE FROM ME: What WAS this photographer thinking??? I can’t stop laughing.
â€œThis photo is from my 8th birthday. My grandmother bought me this American Doll for Christmas the year prior, along with glasses to â€œmake me feel betterâ€ about getting some myself, and she apparently thought it was a good idea to be photographed with the doll on birthday. Wow, Grandma, the doll hovering over my head wasnâ€™t creepy at allâ€¦not at all.â€

NOTE FROM ME: Our poor kids and the way we pose them…which at the moment…seems so right.
Weâ€™ve got ourselves an old fashioned cross-off.

NOTE FROM ME: Cracks me up!!!
â€œThis photo was taken in 1950 while our family was on a summer vacation at the Jersey Shore. I am the lovely creature on the left with a horrendous case of poison sumac and look like a creature from outer space. My two brothers seem only intent on shooting the photographer, and my mother, grandmother and grandfather seem unfazed by this weird person in the photo with them. How did I ever allow anyone to take my photo looking like this? I was just 6 years old and probably didnâ€™t think twice about it at the time.â€

NOTE FROM ME: Love her description.
â€œWhen my father got remarried after my parentâ€™s divorce, my mother went through the family albums and cut him out of all of the family photos. Using scissors became too labor intensive, so she switched to white-out.â€

NOTE FROM ME: Ok…..this one cracked me up………I’m sure it felt “right” when she pulled out the white out…but NOW???
Sometimes, imagination just isnâ€™t enough.

NOTE FROM ME: Josh LOVED his mom doing all of this for him by the looks on his face.
â€œThis is a photo of my mom, my brother, myself, and my soon to be born younger brother. Iâ€™m awkwardly in the hockey equipment on the bottom left. A family friend talked mom into having us all pose for this photo. It went on to win some sort of award in a Newport, RI photo show. It also hung in our house while I was growing up, which made for some awkward moments when friends came over.â€

NOTE FROM ME: This JUST KILLS ME!!!!
â€œI recently photographed my sister-in-lawâ€™s wedding (my husbandâ€™s sister). I knew the window overlooked a part of the hotelâ€™s roof, but I didnâ€™t notice the workers until after I snapped a few pictures. When I got home and downloaded all the pictures, I couldnâ€™t stop laughing when I saw this. Lucky for me she has a good sense of humor and allowed me to share it with you.â€

NOTE FROM ME: Enough!
â€œThis is my mom, dad and brother in Sydney.Â Posing on a bridge, my brother set the camera on timer, and ran back to join my parents. However, he had too much momentum and fell back into the pond.â€

NOTE FROM ME: He tried so hard to get the perfect shot!
You can always spot the fathers who will have trouble letting go.
