I can't believe that my previous answer was so succinct! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img]
My PA son has brown hair and brown eyes (sometimes they look hazel to me). My non-PA daughter has "dirty blonde" hair and brown eyes. Both of them have fair skin.
The eye lash thing - Jess has the most incredible eye lashes (actually Em does too but her's are lighter and she wears glasses so they don't get noticed as much and commented as much on).
Father has dark brown, almost black hair with red highlights through it, which I can see Jesse getting in his. Background is Scottish.
I have "dirty blonde" hair, fair skin, and although adopted, I do know that on my birth-Mother's side I'm of Irish descent.
I've had environmental allergies all of my life and apparently had one asthma attack as a child. Father developed environmental allergies later in life (35+).
Never heard of any anaphylactic or other allergies (aside from environmental) on Father's side of the family until my daughter was diagnosed with amoxicillin allergy last year. Then, much mumblings about bee sting allergies and 'cillin allergies on his side of the family.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

My family is of Scottish/welsh/Ukranian/Polish decent. My husband is Egypt decent, my children are mullatto and both have food allergies. My husband has an allergy to Trace brazil nuts.
So I guess we throw a hitch in the theory of pale, blond hair blue eye'd kids lol. I was quite tanned as a child and only blondish from the sun. Hazel eyes.
dd:7 pork rind allergy

Our stats:
Our PA son has strawberry-blond hair, blue eyes, and very long eyelashes. He's a smart little munchkin, for being only 21 months old.
I am half Irish, half eastern European, and petite.
My hubbie is half Italian, other half mutt: English, German, Irish, Dutch, French.
There are no other food allergies in either family. My mother, however, who is 100% Irish, is allergic to penicillin.

I'm less than 5'4" - small frame - dark brown hair.....OK... so it's got some gray in it too. Olive skinned - tan easily and not much in the way of eyelashes - eyebrows, etc.
Non-PA son and granddaughter both red-heads. My mother's side is all Irish. My father's side - English with a bit of Scottish & German thrown in. Still trying to determine if my g.g.grandfather on dad's side was Maori or European.

Hi, this looks interesting,
I'm 5'1'' (nearly!), with black hair and blue eyes, and skin that tans quite well. My sister more fits in here - blonde, fair eyes and fair hair and skin. She's taller than me though, probably 5'6'', but then it seems I'm an official shorty! lol.
My mother is short too (but taller than me) with brown hair and blue eyes and very fair skin. We are all 100% welsh.
Take care

Here's ours:
My PA DD is 10 and has long dark brown hair with reddish highlights and dark brown eyes. She has olive skin and tans easily.
My oldest DS and youngest DD have the same coloring (dark hair, dark eyes) and my 2 middles (1 DS and 1 DD) have the same coloring (dk blonde and hazel eyes). No food allergies on these guys, just the youngest.
Both DH and I are dark brown hair and Dh has hazel eyes and I have brown. 5'3" and I'm not revealing my weight because its not where I want to be! DH is 6'. Both sons are 5'11", 14 yo DD is 5'2" and youngest DD is about 4'9".
I am all Italian and DH is 1/2 Italian (mom's side), 1/4 English and 1/4 Irish. So that makes my kids 75% Italian. Our last name sounds English, so I've often thought of adding an "e" to the end of our name to make it more Italian!

Ok, I'll fess up. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
I am fair skinned, dark brown hair, 5'6". I am 1/4 Irish, and 3/4 German. Hazel eyes.
My husband is average complexion, was born a tow-head, but now is dark brown, 6'1". He is also 1/4 Irish and a mix of German and Polish. Blue eyes.
My PA and DA son was born at 9lb. 8oz. He has always been tall for his age (he is almost 5), but he's a skinny little thing (not scrawny). He is almost as white as a ghost, with hazel eyes and red hair. He appears to be quite smart, but has problems applying himself to things he doesn't find interesting (which seems to be everything recently) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
My non-FA daughter is a bit petite, with dishwater blond hair and blue eyes. Normal skin, except for bouts of mild ecxema. She will be 2 in September. She also seems to comprehend things quite well, but is in speech therapy because she doesn't seem to want to talk. Went thru the same thing with my son. He was only in therapy for 6 months - caught up quick!

Logan PA does have light hair and pale skin,but there are no relatives with this same allergy.
I am allergic to penecillin and my husband has cat and sesonal allergies,but that's it.
It could be if any family has allergies of any kind their is more likely hood of allergies in general to be passed down.
But i don't believe in the different nationalitys having more or less we are all colorful people and regardless we all get allergies.
it's all ment to be if your supposed to get the allergie ,your supposed to get it.
It"s very unfortunate for us who have Pa or are living with it. I'm not PA , but my son is and we all say we are the PA family.
as a reply my son is very bright and no lie was saying please and thankyou at 11 months, but i still feel all this about race and color of hair has nothing to do with this allergy.
