We've got lots...I just kinda call the kids whatever pops into my head at the moment. The regulars are:
Pumpkin pie
Pumpernickel bread
Knick-knack-paddy-whack, give the dog a bone (Yes, I actually call Patrick this all the time...why? I don't even remember)
Fuss Budget
Fussy britches
Fiona Bunkle (what we call Julia when she's being fussy)
Freddy Bunkle (what we call the boys when they are being fussy)
Jpeg
Peggy Sue
Jbear
PitPat
Matty Methusela
MitMat

And, of course, when the boys have a present for us:
Poopdeck Pappy
Stinker pants
P.U. Bear

Then there are the old standbys of:
Sweetie
Honey
Sweetums
Sweets

Yes, it is a wonder my children even know their own names! Although, in a store, no one else's kid comes running to the call of Knick-Knack!

Wow here are ours:

I call DH: Papi, Babe, or Honey sometimes, PITA (wink)
I call my DD: stinky butt, tee-tee, or Katie-lynn
My DS's: We just call them by name

No extravagant names for us, we're just plain simple :)

We have quite a few. As a child my daddy would call me Little Dummy and I called him Big Dummy. He also called me Go-Bird (I always had to be going somewhere). Most of my friends called me Leigh-Leigh or shrimp (I am very short).

Some of the kids' nicknames are:

DS
Big Dawg
Dawg (he is much bigger than other kids his age, he is the big dog of the group.) Most everyone, both parents and kids that he plays ball with call him Dawg)
Boogie - I love Mike Boogie from the show Big Brother.
J-Rod - he is a great baseball player and loves the player for the Yankees called A-Rod.

When he was three he came into the house and announced to me he was not John-Christopher, he was Mac Daddy. For the next three months we had to call him Mac Daddy no matter where we were. He would not respond to his given name.

DD
Angel - because of her big heart
Ali-Angel - name given to her by her Maw-Maw
Squirrel
Precious
Grace - she is not graceful at all, very accident prone.

If the kids are together and I want them both I call them A & B. I will just yell out "A & B come here."

DH and I do not have nicknames for each other.

In high school, my friends used to call me Naderbug. It eventually got downgraded to Buggie for quite some time -- my ex was still calling me Buggie not long before I left him.

:smooch: calls me such endearing names as Babe, Treasure and <a href="http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail31.html">Sugarbob</a>. lol BTW, :smooch: is not Daniel. :p

DH and I call each other baby, pronounced BEH-beh. We've been doing it so long that if he calls me by my real name, I think something's wrong :D

Occasionally DH calls me wifey or my lil pain in the butt, and I frequently call him insane :D but those are more descriptive terms rather than pet names.

The husband is usually refered to as: Hun. When I'm talking to anyone else in the family I refer to him as "The Husband".

When I'm talking to my kids I call them "Baby", ""sweetie", and other random cute things like that. But when I'm talking about them I call my oldest "Large Screaming", my 17mo. old is "Medium screaming", and the 5 mo. old is either "small screaming", "infant", or "doggie". We call him doggie because right before he was born we inherited a baby chihuahua and my middle child called him "doggie". So, when we brought home the infant she started calling him "doggie". Pretty much anything smaller than my middle child is refered to as "doggie".

I keep telling my husband that we need to stop that because he will develop some kind of complex...
