Posted this on you tube...wanted to make sure you see it.
Parents 66th wedding anniversary dinner. I went to take a picture then, thought of your smile a while challenge. I quickly switched to video and this is what I got.

My twins went to a birthday party and got a "blinking grill" and she wanted me to take her picture with it in. She didn't know her brother was in the background until the last few seconds....
