This was our second year getting our tree from Sam's Club. It doesn't fulfill my romantic notions of walking through a Christmas Tree Farm and chopping down the perfect tree but it works in a pinch. We went there for other things tonight and on the way out noticed they had about 20 trees there. They were all frasier firs, big, and $23! And boy were they fresh. So, in the FREEZING cold, the kids and I picked out the best one(as much as one can considering they were all tied up) and then I had to hoist it on top of the van since John is recovering from a minor surgery and is forbidden to lift anything over 10lbs. Last year's tree was from Sam's too and it was probably the best one we'd ever had- so it may become an annual tradition!
