Double Take?

I truly haven't disappeared from the face of the earth although I'm sure it seems like it. A cute thing happened on Easter Sunday and I haven't shared it but I think about it every time I see my boys.

These pictures are of both my boys when they were 17. OK- now to the story...

While Matt was on his mission and Cory was in High School people would see Cory walking across the street to seminary and have to do a double take because he looked so much like his brother. I guess that was when he grew to be about the same size Matt was in High School- tall with long skinny legs and his hair got darker too. It didn't help that he carried a goofy teeny tiny camoflauge backpack like Matt had carried.

On Easter Sunday Allie, my youngest niece, was goofing around with Matt-putting crowns on his head and making cute faces and just teasing him like always. He kept shaking his hair around and out of the clear blue she said, "Hey! You look like Cory!" It was really funny because I hadn't heard that in a long time and for a 4 yr old to notice was cute. I think it was because Cory always flips his hair out of his eyes and Matt got the same effect when he shook his head.

Kids say the cutest things! What do you think? I never could see it but looking back they sure look a lot alike. No mistaking they are brothers anyway!

Awww! I didn't hear her say that. She sure loves to play with those two.. The kids were so sad that they didn't get to see Matt when he stayed over... He better not consider that his babysitting!!
