Awkward Family Photo Friday!

So, a few weekends ago, my family went to a black tie affair.  Yes, a black tie affair.  Those things hardly happen anymore (which I actually think is a sad thing).  I don't think we- as in, the Davis family- have ever been to a black tie affair together.

After weeks of sweating over what to wear and discussing it multiple times over the phone, the event day finally arrived.  We donned our dresses and tuxes, waited for our limo (yeah right), and decided to take a family photo in the meantime.  Because how often does this happen?

But wait!  How the heck do you pose for a formal family photo?  We were all having flashbacks to high school prom.  Except wait.  That's my mom in a prom dress.  We stood outside in the backyard arguing over how to take this picture.  And here's what we came up with:

Now I know some of you are saying, "But wait.  You all look great."  

Why thank you.  No really, I appreciate it and all.  But really, my mom decided we would look weird if we just stood in a straight line.  Kinda like an old prom picture stored under your bed.  So she decided to not make it weird by sitting down up front.  Right-o.  If you ask me, she looks like the Queen Mother.

Which would make my my dad the King, of course.

And a few more beards, please.  Thank you.

And there you have it.  Our awkward family photo.

Happy Friday!  And if this counts, then Happy April Fool's Day to the Davises, minus Michelle and Dan.  Oh how I wish I could give Dan a cool beard.


  1. Hahahaha!!! THIS IS AWESOME!!!!

  2. Haha, I love this!!! You tell funny stories really well, Diane! :D

  3. Aw, thanks Chantilly! I couldn't help myself when my sister sent me this pic. :)

  4. I LOVE this photo (especially with the queen mother and king father)! Oh Diane this post completely reminded me of the very descriptive voicemails you would leave me!

  5. Lindsey, I knew someone like you would appreciate a good poke at my mom and dad. :) And I miss the days of leaving you my long and drawn out voicemails.

  6. The best part of this "all dolled up" photo is the bag of pine bark mulch in the background! Love it.

    And you all are not nearly as awkward as you indicate!
