Last year, we upgraded our tree to a 9.5 footer. The smaller tree that I’d had for years, just looked too puny with the higher ceilings in the new house. That smaller tree has now gone to live at my son’s apartment.
After we got the new tree up last year, I realized that because of the bigger size, the ornaments I had just weren’t enough to fill it all out. I needed several more, larger bulbs to make the new tree look right.
