For Pat... she has something else to stare at besides the bleach spot on her pink slipper...

Several posts ago, I promised photos of our Christmas tree along with some favorite ornaments.

Here it is - the day we took it down - since we HAD to because the day after we took out the old piano and moved in the 'new' (but used) piano, we awoke to find that the tree had imploded sometime in the middle of the night:

And here are a couple ornaments - not that you can see them very well...

A Department 56 design of a funky fish with long, skinny legs.

One of several photos of Olivia on Santa's lap (the others were buried beneath the branches...)

One of dozens of homemade ornaments made by Olivia who, if given the opportunity, would spend all of her time "doing art projects." (A girl after her Momma's heart!)

There are many, many more ornaments - which I like way more than these. But again - buried!

So much for my plan of keeping the tree up until Easter!
If a Christmas tree falls in the middle of the living room when there's no one around to hear it, does it still make a sound? no.

Whether a tree falls to the south or to the north, (or in the living room) in the place where it falls, there will it lie. -Ecclesiastes 11:3

Oh my gosh, this imploded Christmas tree could possibly do some psychological damage to a person with a sensitive nature ....what happened?!
I'm sure it was quite festive, and even in it's sad state it does beat looking at my stained slipper.
We are a sad and unique bunch, aren't we?! LOL!

When Brillo Man and I were moving the piano into the house, I picked up the tree and moved it slightly to get it out of the way. I think I cracked the base because the next morning it was leaning against the wall. Brillo Man tried to stand it up and...the rest is history! Only had one ornament casuality - and I was able to fix it - so it wasn't too big a tragedy!
