This was one Christmas that we decorated the whole Christmas tree with glass ornaments and gold satin bows. It was so pretty and old fashioned. The tree was 8 or 9 feet tall. It was real and I ended up leaving it up til February. I tried to keep it watered because I was so busy with work that I didn't have time to take it down. My dad came over and helped me get it down. Needles went everywhere!
