At the end of day, Jack and I met Sharon at Abel's Christmas Trees on Sunrise. Sharon spotted this lot last year. From 2009 to 2014, we got our tree from Lamb's in Elk Grove. From 2003 to 2008, we got a tree at Cal Expo five out of six years. In 2001 and 2002, we bought trees on Folsom Boulevard from a lot which may have been Abel's. In 2000, our first year in Elk Grove, we got a tree on Laguna and Laguna Springs where the Brewhouse parking lot is now.
We picked out a tree and had them flock it. The lot was not officially open yet!?! I am going to go back on Friday to pick it up. Partly to due to the schedule for the progressive neighborhood Christmas party, we are buying a tree more than two weeks earlier than last year!
Sharon, Jack and I finished the day with a nice dinner of Chinese food at the Mandarin Restaurant. Although I probably shouldn't have been, I was surprised how busy the restaurant was.
