I think Alex enjoyed being the model in the whole process LOL!
Jerry's twin brother Garry came up with his family at the same time for New Years. This is his son Logan with Hayley.
Hayley being silly wearing Gabby's glasses, but I think they look good on her, so when we go back for our eye exams I'll have to try to find a similar pair.
This is my sister in law Gina, can you see Kathleen sneaking in on the side? LOL
There was a lot of finger pointing and blame for whoever did this to Garry for being the first to fall asleep! LOL
The guilty party, his daughter Gabby.
Garry without the cool whip. Also without the hair like Jerry so it's how we tell them apart. LOL.
So about 3 AM the house looked like this...
Room trashed, kids exhausted....
Chip being a good sport in the only bed left.
He has the best sense of humor, he is always cracking us up.
Thank God for all the important gifts of my friends and their o.k. to post these pics on my blog. :-)
