July Dresden Plate

sistertammie answered:
Thank you Darcy. Want to hear a funny thing that happened last night??? My daughter is pregnant with her fourth child, and they for some reason are going to name it dresden, because it is a German name. They came over for the fourth, and said they googled dresden and they said" Mom you know what a dresden is" I walked into the other room, and said is it this??? and she was shocked that I knew.
