Well, it took two consecutive days and twenty minutes, but we finally got the Christmas photo. Chloe has made a beautiful lino-cut block print picture for the front of the cards and I will be writing the letters soon.
We cut our tree on Saturday. For a $5 permit you can cut a tree in the Deschutes National Forest. The search required snowshoes this year, at least for the grownups, and we had a great time. The tree is just over 12 feet tall!
