CHRISTMAS TREE UP, CHRISTMAS TREE DOWN!

Print Friendly

We were finally able to round everybody up to go get the Christmas tree. Grampa picked out the perfect one and we raced home to decorate it. I cooked honey baked ham (with Justin’s honey coating recipe), cheesy mashed potatoes, and fried okra while the children had fun hanging lights and ornaments. Just before bedtime, I filled up the tree stand to the rim with water.

The next morning, I walked in the living room and, right in front of me, it came crashing down. Ornaments and broken glass flew everywhere! I suspect one of the cats made a narrow escape. Thank goodness there weren’t any gifts under the tree yet because, after the guys stood the it back up (and bolted it to the wall!), I had to clean up two gallons of water mixed with needles and glass shards. Yuck and ug!!

Hugs to all,
Angela
