Arizona's Family first met Smith on Christmas Eve 2018, when they had 105 trees. Each year, they add a new tree or two--or three--and every tree has its own theme. "We have teddy bears and then we have the White House tree, which are ornaments from the White House, which helps the Historical Society," Smith explained. "Then we have a princess tree and we have a Disney tree that includes ornaments from all our trips."
