Willowdale family’s tree is a TOWERING GIANT
“When we moved into our home 30 years ago, I bought a regular tree and it was dwarfed by our high ceilings,” says Sally, who lives in Willowdale subdivision. The Churches have been custom-ordering a tree from the mountains of North Carolina ever since.
This year, it took 10 neighborhood boys to bring the 16-foot tree into the house and hoist it up. It took a week for Sally to decorate the tree -- even with help from neighbors and friends.
The tree is beautiful, lit up with 7000 white lights (35 strings of 200 lights each) and adorned with over 80 gold crosses, angels, and musical instruments.
