I can't believe he is so grown up now, it seems like yesterday I was just holding him in my arms and he was just a little baby. Time has gone by so fast. Anyway, they are such a wonderful couple, I mean, look at them. Even the vicar was lost for words as he was stunned by their beauty.Mrs. F-G: Excuse me, the priest forgot his words because of your twins. Don't you remember?
