Brief Description:

The reason we love this picture is because it depicts one of our favorite family activities...cutting down our Christmas tree!! This particular year (Dec. 2010) was extra special because just prior to taking this picture we learned that Grandma was officially cancer-free after a year of chemo and surgeries for breast and lymph node cancer! Now, every holiday, birthday, or other special event is a blessing and we don't take anything for granted anymore. Your health really is all that matters!
