I shouldn't even repeat my son's comment when he caught his darling bare-bellied daughters standing at the sliding glass doors, resembling a couple of miniature rednecks. "It looks like we never left Alabama," he joked. (For the record: that's where our son was stationed with his little family for about six months before they made the move to their current home in Colorado.) (Also for the record: although there is no love whatsoever lost between the Pearl family and Alabama's Crimson Tide football team--which stole the championship crown from Notre Dame back in January, boo hiss--we do have a beloved brother-in-law who hails from Alabama, and I hope he doesn't take our joshing about the state of his birth too seriously!)
Maybe for some of you this picture brings to mind Jeff Foxworthy's famous "You might be a redneck if" comedy routine...but I think it just proves that my granddaughters would look adorable in ANYTHING!
