There's no place like home, and Sunday morning breakfast

Sometimes, I feel a bit guilty for having grown up the way I did.  We weren't rich in terms of money, or had a lot of things, but we were extremely rich when it came to family.  I have the best parents in the world, and a brother and sister I can call my best friends.  We have a wealth of memories, good times shared, and have overflowed with laughter.  We are rich in terms of love.  Many people I know do not have a family like I do... many of my friends did not grow up the way I did.  I am so blessed to have the family I have.  I am truly wealthy.

This morning I went through some images I had taken over Christmas spent with my family.  
These images made me long for my childhood, and Sunday morning breakfast.  

Dad with Joah.  Dad hasn't changed.  He always took time for us, played with us, provided for us, and saw the best in us.
It continues to this day, and now it passes on to his grandson.  
To me, my Dad is the ultimate example of what a Father should be.

I can't even begin to count how many times Mom has made this biscuit recipe.  We had them often.  
We always had every meal at the table together.  A concept lost by many families today.  
No TV.... cellphones didn't even exist, and facebook was what happened when you fell asleep while reading.

Mom, I know you are in your pjs in these images, and you may feel you look silly, but I think you are beautiful.  
These images mean the world to me.  
These images remind me of the amazing childhood you and Dad gave us!

I think Joah approves of Sunday morning breakfast  :)

At Home with the Morrows

Saturday, I had the opportunity to spend the morning with the Morrow family.  Four boys.... all age 8 and under!  
They kept me on my toes and then some!

I'm not a fan of the traditional family picture with everyone smiling at the camera, which makes me love the image below.  It's not perfect, but a perfect example of their personalities.

Colin is 18 months old.  Either he's not a fan of me in the image below, or he's not a fan of growing up.  

I prefer to think it's the latter  :)

Okay boys... I can take a hint  :)

Robyn, thank you for inviting me into your home, and trusting me with your family. I look forward to getting to know you all better!

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
