You's blogs like this I never know how to begin when a picture such as the one above speaks a thousand words. While home for the holidays my sister and I took part in our favorite holiday tradition - weeding through old family photos and finding the most horrible one of each other. It works like this:

1.) Take trip up to the attic (glasses of wine optional)
2.) Toss off shoes
3.) Kneel and silently rummage through stacks of old photos in boxes
4.) Burst out in hysterical laughing when come across horrible one of sibling
5.) Hand over said photo to sibling who then also bursts out laughing
6.) Make each other laugh to brink of urinating in ones own pants
7.) Laughter draws other family members demanding to know what is so funny
8.) Share photo with family members resulting in them sitting down to dig in box hoping to unearth own horrific gem from the past

No matter what it is always hard to pick our favorite- Dad a la David Cassidy in a skin tight printed shirt and skin tight kelly green polyester pants, Mom in 80's octagon sunglasses and permed hair, Sis a big brace face wearing a Full House sweatshirt...this one - hands down - won this round.

All I have to say is many people are counting down the days to the Christmas holiday. I am too. Can you say payback?

Yeah, I think you do need to post the rest of them. I have ones much more embarrassing. At least you look happy. My hair is parted in the middle in all of my photos. What was I thinking?
