Fun With Genetics

For some reason I found myself looking up information on eye color genetics. (For some reason.) Given the Wikipedia definitions of various eye colors, I figure that my eyes are green with a hazel-y twist, while TheLimey's are very blue-green.

The cool thing is that there is (of course) an eye-color calculator, albeit greatly simplified from how eye color genes actually express themselves in real life.

According to my calculations (me = blue/blue+ green/green; him = blue/blue + green/blue), our kids are all destined to have green eyes only. But if I change my green gene to a green/blue, then a few blue-eyed kids are thrown in the mix.
