The Great Room Christmas Tree

It takes me 2 full days to decorate the Great Room Christmas tree.

So many ornaments that I treasure to place on the tree.

The tree is a 9 foot Silverado Slim that I purchased

from Balsam Hill a couple of years ago. It replaced my 12 foot tree,

that truly got so cumbersome to decorate.

Always up and down a very tall ladder, so this 9 foot tree is easier to manage

not to mention taking up much less space.
