It's funny, but I have no idea where my red hair came from. My mother's jet black hair, brown eyes, and olive complexion caused her to often be taken for Italian. My father had dark brown hair and brown eyes. I am a green-eyed redhead with chalk white skin and freckles. Funny, but my eyes used to be a deep green, however in the last 20 years or so they have faded and are now light blue. FTDNA had an eye color predictor they were testing - they asked for feedback about how accurate it is - mine was the exact green that I started life with!
My children are both blue eyed blonds. My 3 grandsons have dark brown, blonde, and light brown, 2 are blue eyed and 1 is brown eyed. Their mother has dark brown hair and eyes, though. I'm on the verge of becoming a great grandmother any day now - can't wait to see how he turns out!
