This one sprung to mind last week but since I had school stuff to deal with first, I put it on the back-burner.

What is your PA child's "colouring" like?

Jesse has medium brown hair. He has light brown eyes. His skin is very fair and if given the opportunity he would have to burn first before tanning.

My PA ds is very fair, brown hair and blue eyes, and right now with all his allergies he's even pastier than usual.
DD has blonde hair and blue eyes and very fair skin, her tests were negative but we're all not so sure we believe the results (allergist included).

Oldest Cub:
A [i]Greek[/i] Adonis. (Takes after hubby, but Hubby [i] is Lithuanian[/i], Greek by association. More like a lighter Kalamata olive. Eyes like the Agean Sea. Crystal Blue with a ripple of Teal running through them when the light hits just right. Pure white surrounding them much similiar to the froth on the waves. Eyelashes like a Mustang's tail. At first glance (and last time I looked), surprisingly tall (age 8, over 5 foot) and equally surprising, strength not usual for persons of his age (currently 103 lbs).
From birth, his shoulders have commanded attention and I feel most appropriate considering his capacity for love and empathy.
All in all, [i]typical of Greek heritage that I know[/i] (Blue eyes were prevalent in my Father's heritage --- Islands, and all that. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I'll admit to some [i]Lithuanian Influence on my husband's side.[/i] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
[i]We are blessed[/i].
Youngest Cub:
Golden blonde hair, like a field of bearded wheat. Skin the texture of butter, and color similiar to fresh cream. One might think roses kiss his cheeks before he awakes each morning. His face filled with boundless expression. He is no stranger to sunscreen. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] Again, he has the "family eyes" and uses them [i]accordingly[/i]. Despite his blonde hair, his eyelashes are equally noticable, and appropriately highlight the precious gems they protect. Much similiar to the feathers encircling the neck of a dove.
Large for his age (age 3- 41 pounds, height currently unknown, but taller than his peers) he is [i]leaner[/i] but still robust. He is happiest when in motion. Despite his apparent size, he is lovingly referred to as, ahem, "the runt". Still, he is a formitable challenge for his larger brother.
He is joyfull, humorous in a surprising way, and laughter abounds.
All in all, [i]typically Greek[/i] I'll admit to some [i]Lithuanian influence[/i] on my husband's side. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
[i]We are blessed.[/i]

Very fair skin often tinged with pink. Full, juicy pink lips, long dark eyelashes, dark blonde/light brown hair, and awesome eyes--kind of bluish, greyish, greenish with tiny flecks of brown in the center. Just love those eyes!

All three of my kids have allergies, but dd is the only one with food allergies. They could be triplets, they so much alike.
Dark blonde hair, dark blue eyes. Dd's eyes developed hazel and green sparks when her food allergies became very serious. All three kids have fair skin. They do burn, if we aren't careful with the sunscreen, but tan the next day. They get that from their dad not their mom!!!
I have allergies and am very fair with royal blue eyes and up until the last few years, bottle blonde hair, without any help. Since all the surgeries in the last three years it is now dishwater blonde. Yucky....... I am waiting to see what this last surgery will do for the color...My days of blonde may be over.
Forgot to add, my two oldest kids, their hair has developed some beautiful red highlights in the last year.

Medium to dark brown hair(picks up some reddish highlights in sun), very fair skin, never tans at all, and with sunscreen, stays white as snow, aside from the ever increasing freckles I expect to cover every inch of her(presently splashed all over her face)!
I also describe her eyes in ocean terms. Like the various colored gray and brownish-greenish pebbles, as seen through the water in the New England beaches. Seem to be going more brown every year, though, with flecks of golden color.
Really a combination of dh and I(he is more fair haired and has blue-gray eyes and I have nearly black hair and very dark brown eyes and tan well if careful).
Aside, people have more than once told me she looks like Matilda from that kids movie. I couldn't watch it though. The parents were just so horrible that I did not find it funny. becca

Dark blonde hair, hazel green eyes, very fair skin. Non-PA brother has dark brown hair, the greenest eyes I've ever seen, and tans like a God (gets that from his dad, not me!).

Wow, everyone was so much more descriptive than I was and included their non-PA children as well so now I feel crappy. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
Jesse has the most amazing eye lashes, dark and lush.
Ember, non-PA, has hair more my colour, which would have been called, at one time, *dirty blonde). She tans like a little brownberry every year. She has darker brown eyes than her brother. She also has wonderful eye lashes but because they're fairer and she wears glasses on top of that, they don't get noticed as much as her brother's.
Jesse, although not tiny for his age, is not tall tall, and is extremely slender (he is built exactly like his Father).
Ember, yesterday, in meeting people at the school, they were quite surprised that she was going into Grade 1 because she is so tall. If she is an inch shorter than her brother, I would be surprised and she has to weigh at least ten pounds more than him without being heavy.
To whoever noticed the thing about *pale* PA kids, that's what I'm trying to see in this thread, not only pale, but just if there is a certain "colouring" that goes with our PA children in general.
Pale skin does seem to be one thing most have in common (does pale = fair?).
