We have a slender fake tree that I purchased when we lived in the retirement community apartment in Columbia. The box had to fit in our storage space in the basement so this tree fit that qualification. When we moved here there was no reason to get a bigger tree though granddaughter #1 asked why we didn't have a real tree. She accepted my explanation as reasonable and made the observation we didn't have to spend money on a tree each year. Good point!
She started helping me decorate it on Tuesday evening. I finished it on Wednesday afternoon.
