Whose socks are these?

Hi everyone!
Thanks for coming on Sunday. Who’s up for having another party soon? I am! By the way, whose son is missing a black jacket? I found one in my coat closet. Somebody also left some red socks. I’ve attached a picture. Whose socks are these? Also, who’s the owner of the Star Wars DVD? I don’t think it belongs to us. And last but not least, who’s going to come back and help me clean up? I bet you can guess whose car suddenly needed an oil change when it was clean up time!
Cheers,
Annie
