TIMBER!!!!

OMG!! Our Christmas tree fell this afternoon about 1:30! No one was near it - I was in the kitchen and heard this boom and shattering. I ran into the living room and there our beautiful tree had fallen and so many ornaments had shattered. We we're sad! :(((( So, after we tried to calm down and after we got over the dread of having to re-trim the tree, and I mean, start ALL OVER we got to work again! The reason it fell is that it was kind of crooked in the stand because it has a weird stump!

This picture was the FIRST time we trimmed the tree about 3 weeks ago. See how happy we were?

This was right after it fell, and we had started to sweep up all the glass... sad!



Here is the tree now! About 1/2 the lights, but still lots of ornaments! It's now 6:30.
Hhhhhhhhhhhhh...

Now, we can laugh!

We're still blessed. At least it didn't fall during the night or ON anyone...
