I told you here that our children brought us a tree. I thought they cut it down themselves.
Turns out they bought one all tied up so they could carry it on top of the car. Even though Charlie cut about 4 inches from the bottom it was still 8 feet tall. (Our ceilings are 8 feet 6 inches high.)
When we took the string off the tree turned out to be enormously FULL. We put it in the spot we had planned and set it up straight.
I’m of the “get it right in the stand and you’re good to go” school and Charlie likes the extra security of tying it off to hooks in the wall.
Just because our totally decorated trees have tumbled over in the past is not reason enough for me to mistrust a tree stand.
Takes all the fun out. Right?
FYI – It’s tied to the wall.
How do you keep your tree upright?
