The Gustafson Family ... life in a contact sheet.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.  "Pooh!" he whispered.  "Yes, Piglet?"  "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw.  "I just wanted to be sure of you."  ~A.A. Milne

I share my images and feelings about this family often. Sure, she
is my dearest friend, and her children are little stars in my sky,
and she continues to amaze me every year we grow a little older...she grows better : )
This contact sheet was a little challenging. For one, I have SO much material, and two, my desire to make it 'perfect' for her is much like my desire to hand make my 5th grade boyfriends valentine...a hot mess.
Here you are my dear. Merry Christmas and I love you 
all SO MUCH - hot mess and all!
