Yep, I'm a whitey


Aubrey said this to Joey the other day with much concern, "I feel bad for mommy that she can't get a tan like the rest of us." I thought this was so sweet that she was concerned for me and my feelings. And at the same time I thought it was pretty funny and cute. I have said a few times to the girls, "You are so lucky to have such beautiful skin!" I get out in the sun and I just freckle. It is awful. Then my kids-they walk outside for 10 minutes and they come in with a golden tan. I feel so left out! :) I'm the whitey in the family. We'll see about Cali...too soon to really tell, but she does seem to be lighter. Aubrey said to her the other day, "You're our little whitey, aren't you Cali?" Its always interesting to see when you have one spouse thats got a little Chamorro flavor and one thats white as can be, how the kids' complexions turn out. I hope for all of their sakes, that they get a little more of Joey's skin tone!!!

Joey & the girls last summer sportin their summer tans. I won't post a picture of me from the same day-it may blind you:)
