Do you remember that nice sturdy tree we got... that HEAVY tree we got.
well.... heavy trees should probably be tied to things (like big beams in a timber framed home)... because if not..................
You may find yourself with several broken things.
Fortunately, the dogs were outside when this happened and Abbie wasn't home. I was baking cookies and watched it go over (kind of like in slow motion)
It was easily re-stood, Ed got some nice tuff bailing twine and we tied it in place. The lights were re-arranged and the ornaments that survived were put back. But sadly, some were badly damaged.. and even sadder.. some were ornaments that Abbie had received as gifts. Oh well.. all replaceable.... but next time..
tree will be tied....
