Matching Pairs

Matching Pairs is an idea I had back in 2009 when I noticed that there are photos of Sean and Elijah individually that are similar- either in pose or attire or some other way. So I thought it would be fun to match them up. Hence, Matching Pairs. Enjoy them!


Pair 1: Kings of Mardi Gras! Elijah and Sean were Bacchus Kings in consecutive years. Best of all, Elijah was the one who proposed Sean to be the next year's King *and* he was there for Sean's reign. And both returned the year after Hurricane Katrina. They are the best!

Pair 5: A Pair of Mikeys and Their First On-Screen Kisses. Sean as Mikey Walsh in 'The Goonies' and Elijah as Mikey Carver in 'The Ice Storm'. These were indeed our guys first on-screen kisses.

Pair 13: Tee Shirts with Messages. What struck me about these two photos is that Sean and Elijah both look so unlike their usual selves, but both look so incredibly, well, hot.

Pair 31: A Dog's Best Friend. Sean and Elijah are both huge dog lovers. This is Sean's old dog (now sadly deceased, I believe) and a more recent photo of Elijah with his brother's dog. Lucky dogs, that's all I can say!

Pair 35: Geeky Rebels in Shades. Elijah as Sandy in Flipper and Sean as Alan in White Water Summer. Both played geeky boys sent away for the summer for their own good, Sandy to stay with his eccentric uncle in the Florida Keys, Alan to experience a wilderness adventure. Elijah was 15, Sean 16, when they played these roles.

Pair 37: Men of the Cloth. If this doesn't make you into a church goer, nothing will. ;-) If I can find larger, better versions of Sean and Elijah in these roles, I will replace these.
