I decided to do something different for 2009 in regards to my family's names. Prior I was using their initials to keep things private in their actual names. This year, I decided to use a name that resembles each family member:
M&M Dude~ My husband is so addicted to Peanut M&M's so I thought this would be perfectly fitting for him. I will always remember the 1st time I realized he was addicted to them. We were in our first house and from the bedroom I could hear the sounds of "clink, clink, clink". I kept on hearing it from the front of the house. I had to get up and find out what it was. It was just my husband eating peanut M&M's from a M&M dispenser in the den. (He can actually eat an entire big bag of these in one day:))
Mr. President~ My son has the personality of a future president. He loves to debate. Always makes sure everyone is doing the "right" thing (even down to recycling). According to M&M dude's cousin, "spend a few minutes talking to him and he sounds like a little JFK!"
Firecracker ~ My daughter is a firecracker. We never know what she is going to do or say. She has so much energy and like my grandmother, is the "Life" of the party. She keeps us laughing non-stop!
