    Re: same smiling face or same smiling faces

    Hello! For me number 3 is correct, because you are reffering to 2 people, that is why "smiling faces" is the best option.
    However, if you want to emphasize the smile on their faces, then the second variant might work.
    Not a teacher.

    The second one. You are saying they have the same face.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
