Family Photos!

One of the things we did this week was gather up the tons of family photos.  We haven't quite managed to sort them, but I snagged a couple of good ones.

This picture was taken at Mom and Duane's wedding.  A little backstory: our brother Ray is NOTORIOUS for never showing up for family gatherings.  Evidently, we were pretty sure he would be a no-show at the wedding so we took matters in our own hands.

We drew (I use the verb loosely) a life-size picture of Ray and stationed it out by the party.  We added quite a few conversation starters too.  I can't read all of them, but here are the ones I can see:

"Hi! My Name is Ray.  How do you know Lois and Duane?"

"OK.  I voted for Reagan."

"Try the fruit -- it's divine."

"Yes, I do work as a programmer."

Jon added the man-hug and the glass of wine.

Best part: Ray DID show up.  And was furious about our Cardboard Brother.

Here's another goodie:

"Sliver" was Jon's nickname.  Can you see why?  Love the St. Brendan's basketball uniform with the shiny green shortie shorts.  And he's rocking the hated "child actor" haircut.

do remember that day like it was yesterday, and Ray was mad (I think he has forgiven us!!) Surprised Jon was able to father children after wearing those shorts.

in re: Jon - well I guess you need to look at his children to figure out if the shorts had anything to do it . . .
