Saturday morning, Jack and I met Sharon at Abel's Christmas Trees on Sunrise. After getting a tree at Lamb's in Elk Grove for the last six years, Sharon spotted this lot. This may be the same farm that we bought trees from in 2001 and 2002 on Folsom Boulevard.
They didn't have a flocked tree that Sharon liked. We picked out another tree and had them flock it. I raced back late Saturday afternoon to pick it up before the Farm Credit West Christmas Party.
It turns that this is probably the biggest tree that we have ever gotten! I bet the owner $5 that I could get the tree inside my SUV and close the tailgate; I couldn't. I had to tie the tailgate down. I was able to get the tree home. Jack and I got it into the front room and up on the stand. It is enormous!
