Universal love

I will admit to suffering in certain social settings when the spotlight is on, so I think you can see that my sons inherited this from me. We as parents have not quite mastered the art of capturing a photo with both sets of eyes wide open, nor both smiles smiling. Well, grinning and bearing it are all apart of the attention one deserves when wearing a blue robe and funny cap.
Excuse the wrinkles, we were told specifically not to iron. Guess we would not want flames to be apart of the pomp and circumstance. The universe is yours gentlemen. Congratulations graduates.

Love it! You must be so proud. I can't get a picture of my husband with his eyes open, so it trying to get twins to work it out must be even more challenging.

you're "fancy friend"

Congratulations to you, Patricia, on raising such handsome, delightful young men! My twin boys turned five ... sniff, sniff ... and I know that day will be here for me even before I realize it. And no, of course we don't get photos in which they both have their eyes open and are looking in the same direction!!
