Journalling: These are all pictures from my childhood home in Swanton, Ohio. On the opposite page is a picture of my 10th birthday cake. You can see the wallpaper that was in our kitchen along with the Happy Birthday sign we put up for everyoneís special day. You can also see the miniatures that my mom collected and that I inherited. On this page is our yellow refrigerator with some artwork on it. I was very proud of the yellow lion tracing. There is a picture of our living room with the striped couches, macrame plant holder that my mom made, and some of my 1st dadís drawings. He was an architect. Then, there is the wall that my 1st dad built between the kitchen and the living room. It had the meaning of each of our names, the family Bible, the current holiday decorations, and my motherís latest sewing project. Last is the opposite end of our living room (and my 9th birthday). The piano was on the left, on the right is the stereo (we had both a record player and an 8-track player), along with my sisterís and my school pictures. You can just see, behind the front door, the doorway that we made between the house and the garage when we turned the garage into a family room.
