Oh Darcey! They look just like sleeping angels! How in the world did you get them both to fall asleep in the same place? This is a winning photograph! I love it! I know this must be a very special photo for you!

Not only is this a great photo, but I would love to know how you got them both to nap. ;) Great work. #451802

Darcey S. March 28, 2004

Thanks so much for your comments. I didn't plan this photo at all. They both fell asleep for the night on my bed. It was about midnight and I was getting ready to bring them to their own beds. I took one look at them and knew I had to grab my camera. They were both fast asleep, so I turned on two table lamps on either side of them and took this. It was a little dark in the original, so I lightened it up in Photoshop. They both slept right through it! Yes Jessica, this is my new favorite photo of them! #451816
