Shannon White chose Trees For Sale.  Shannon said, "Growing up my folks always made a big deal about going to get the Christmas Tree.  We actually took the whole day and would drive to a tree farm in the snow and cut it down ourselves.  Mom would make a big thermos of hot cocoa and Dad would chop down the tree we picked.  8-) A really beautiful card, Shannon, and thank you so much for sharing your tradition too!  Good luck in the drawing.
