Ah, the joys of family gatherings - especially when it's time for the annual family photo. 😅 One man in his 30s decided to continue the tradition of taking a big family Thanksgiving picture for Christmas cards. With 20+ people attending, he politely asked everyone to dress nicely for the photo. Little did he know, his wife's cousin Sarah's family would bring some unexpected drama to the table. 🙈
