Angelina Jolie totes 11-month-old daughter Zahara while running errands on Dec. 9. Two days later, when Brad Pitt returned home to California after wrapping his Jesse James biopic in Calgary, Jolie crossed another item off her to-do list: finding a Christmas tree. With Zahara in tow, Jolie and Pitt drove out to a tree lot in Point Dume (below), where they kidded around with fellow customers and picked out a 14-ft. blue spruce after much deliberation. "They seemed very happy to be sharing this domestic holiday errand," says an onlooker. Once the tree was loaded onto Pitt's truck, the actor rolled down his window to wish the staffers one last happy holiday.
