Eyes

It's a question my kids get a lot: where did you get your blue eyes?


My instructions to them were to reply sweetly, "They came with my head."


Okay, so I'm snarky. I probably should feel bad about that. Sometimes I try. A little.


To review high-school biology:


When you have a blue-eyed daddy,


And a blue-eyed momma,


You get blue eyed kids.





That is all.

Ohhhhhh man! Those are beautiful eyes! I must say blue eyed people are by far the best looking!

Something similar used to happen with our first two kids. They were very blond. The problem was that my husband and myself both have dark hair. Eventually, I started blaming the mailman. :P

Um I agree with that Blue eyed people are the best looking comment... :)

Also I LOVE the smile lines around Daddy's eyes! Doesn't that just make you happy?

Ooooooh, cool idea for a blog. We're another blue-eyed family here. Some of the kids have my hubby's deep blue eyes, others have my freakily pale ones.

Once that blog of mine is up and going (I've got a cool title, now I just have to write something ;) I'm going to steal this idea.

I love dad's smile lines too, Karianne. He had those when he came home from his mission - after two years of squinting in the harsh sun of Brazil.

What great pictures. It would be fun to have a collage of those eyes looking down at me from the wall! I am sorry that I can't see them for myself this week but my service here is needed and helpful. Jared continues to progress. We are doing well. Enjoy your trip.

haha Karianne's eyes are cool cause her pupils are usually way way smaller than anyone else's so they are sooo blue. also those pictures made me laugh my head off because I remember when mom took them at dinner one night. it was way funny cause she told nathan to open his eyes a little wider and the look on his face while he was doing that was so so so funny. I almost died. can't you just see how hard he is trying to show his blueness? hahaha. also sometimes it is weird when people ask us about our eyes cause once we were at taco bell I think and one of the workers who we don't know or anything came up to us and asked if we were wearing contacts. we said no and then she was like "wow that's amazing cause your eyes are so BLUE!" well sometimes this gets a little annoying but it's ok haha
