They started their family a year later, and the family continued to grow until there were a total of five children, it was a crazy but happy time. Freda became quite accustomed to the Italian way of cooking. Every birthday and holiday was made a memorable time for everyone in the family since she could use vegetables from her garden and dad's fruit trees in order to prepare a great dish. With five kids running around, mom never had any peace. We kids always wanted our pets which mom always cared for.
