Wow, it is so good to "see" you. Isn't it funny the picture we create in our mind when we don't know what someone looks like? I had you blond for some reason! Ari is cute! so is that other person hehe

Hey Sweet,
He he. Well I'm typically shy about putting the "real" me up, but Janey's new winter pic inspired me. This picture is me, my husband and our kitty Ari. It's our holiday Card picture.

Sometimes I am blonde.

hugs, peanut

Hey Peanut,

I pictured you blonde too. Looks like you guys are Seahawks fans too? Where are you?

Go Hawks!

Very cute photo!

Love,
B

Hi Peanut~

I agree with the girls, your picture is adorable. The other two aren't so bad either. Can't believe you were able to get Ari to sit so still and actually look at the camera.

I really like Janey's pictures too.
Take care and stay warm,

Michelle

How funny...
We are the Arizona Seahawks representatives. Woot! Woot! Did I tell you we met Matt Hasselbeck? He is soo tall and quite nice.

See how tan my skin is?
That's all from scleroderma. I never lay in the sun down here and avoid with a big hat and sun block as much as possible. When we lived in WA I remember getting pale but never down here. Wierd.

super tan peanut

OH MY GOODNESS~

I have the issue with tan skin too. I thought it might have something to do with sclero but wasn't sure. I've asked my dr's about it for months. They didn't seem concerned about it. I am a very white person that tends to burn and freckle. I can get a little tan, but this past year we went to Hawaii in January and I came back being SUPER DUPER dark. Everyone in my family was tripping out with my skin change. I am just NOW losing my tan. I didn't lose any color for almost a year. I stayed really really dark. It is the strangest thing. I'm glad you said something Peanut, now I don't feel so crazy!
Take care and stay warm,

Michelle

As Arizona Seahawks fans, you have to root for AZ to lose so we can stay on top!

Have you been to a Hawk's game down there?

Barefut,
My hubby is a Seahawks super fan. We have Cardinals season tickets so we are guaranteed good seats for the Cardinals - Seahawks game.

I joke that my husband married me for my Grandma's Seahawks season tickets. She has pretty good seats.

I am normally stark white also. Everyone has been asking the past two years where I vacationed and what a fantastic tan I have. :blink:

My rheumatologist and I were laughing that Scleroderma makes me tan, gives me a face lift (from tight skin) and pumps me full of botox (collagan) - which are all the things women want these days... and I get them all for FREE :D

or rather trade for meds, doctors visits, bills, treatments and a lot of craziness. :blink:
