1. The oldest item in my home is probably my grandparents birth certificates. 2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is a jar of cherries 3. My family heritage is part German (Mom's Side) and Native American Creek/Cherokee (Dad's Side) 4. My favourite family tradition is .... I no longer have "family traditions" because I no longer have my family. Mom and Dad both passed in 2013 and the rest of my family abandoned me so I am alone ... but Erin and I make our own new traditions... nothing in concrete yet though... lol.
