So, What Color Are Your Eyes?

I have two blue eyed children. And I have blue eyes. Mine are a bit grayish so I'd guess toward gunmetal blue. But I'm not sure. None of us exactly match any of them.

I have five brown eyed children. They are pretty much between chocolate and nut brown.

Green eyes are pretty rare, so it's funny that almost all the romance books have a green eyed protagonist in them.


So what color are your eyes?

We've got three honey brown (J, K, and me), two gunmetal blue (W and M), one baby blue (hubby), and one cornflower (Lexi). We get comments about her eyes almost every time we go out.

My husband and two boys are blue, one gunmetal, one cornflower, and one sky blue. Mine are green, probably closest to forest green. Most people assume mine are either brown or blue, and are surprised when they look.

Mine are probably closest to the forest green, they have the same outer dark circle, but also have brown flecks inside. It tends to depend on the light I'm in whether the brown or the green shows up most.

This was kinda neat. I have 5, 1 cornflower blue, 1 chestnut, 1 chocolate, 1 honey, and 1 chartreuse. My 10 yr old's favorite story; When I was about 5 yrs old I told my mom that I wanted to have a blue-eyed, red headed baby. My mom told me that since I was brown skinned, I would have brown-skinned babies with dark eyes and hair.
Forty yrs later when my social worker called about a little 5 yr old boy, she mentioned that he was Caucasian, but that was all I knew. When I went to the McDonald's to pick him up, out of the van came this bouncing, blue-eyed redhead boy and I just looked smugly at my mom and said, "Ha!" We laughed so much and still do today. :)

I guess gunmetal blue. I would tend to call them "blah blue". Blah eyes. Blah face. Blah hair turning to gray. Blah, blah, blah.

Hmmm....3 chocolate browns for sure. Those are the easy ones. I would guess Kai and I have baby blue, though his are a bit more intense so maybe his could be sky blue. Derek though is a puzzle. He has green eyes. But not really any of the shades listed. His are forest green but he has a lot of flecks of other colors in his. (Blues, greys, and hazel browns)

It's interesting to see everyone try to figure it out. I think blues are the hardest. I didn't even try with Rick's. They are hazel. Love the one about the redhead/blue eyed child.
