Our tree is up and has survived without any catastrophes! Maleiah hasn't even tried touching it much which is a huge relief...I anticipated shattered ornaments.
Last year we talked about cutting a tree down since we miss that so much. However, our house is small and spending money to cut down a miniature tree wasn't something that sounded frugal so we are sticking with our little fake tree. We have put less up this year due to busy fingers but it suits our quest for simplicity. :)
