Birthdays and Holiday Weekends

I spent my birthday this year in Davenport, IA with my sister. The kids made the best pink cake (3 candles, 39 white polka dots), I guess they thought something or someone would catch on fire if they used that many candles. My nephew keeps calling me Samantha, who is actually my youngest sister...we have a "who's the best auntie war" going on in my family. My mother actually gets Samantha, who lives in Arizona, on the phone just to tell her this. I'll be damned that he'll remember my name before I leave on Monday morning.

How petal came to be....and other nicknames

It's all Dylan's fault. Sometimes when I'm in a bad mood he calls me Puddle, and every now and then he calls me Pedal. My nieces and nephews think I'm a delicate flower. Most people just call me Michelle, except Emon and Shelley and Marc. I've had other nicknames in the past, here are just a few....Tidball, Tiddyballs, Titless Tidballs, Woody ( the laugh), Missy (that's a family one, it rhymes with Pissy and I don't like it), Supa Dupa Krupa (I like this one, but not the last name so much). And last not but least, Della, there's surely a Perry to follow....
