2 tries, 20 takes, 1 great photo

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!
