Christmas Tree, Take 2

For the second year in a row, we've had to redecorate our tree!  Last year, we had a real tree that fell over.   This year, we bought an artificial tree that was 9 ft tall to go in our FR with 10 ft tall ceilings.  We brought it home, set it up, and guess what??  Our ceilings are only 9 ft tall, not 1o!!

The tree went all the way to the ceiling.  We tried to live with it, but couldn't stand it.  So after a couple of days, we bought a new tree.   We took down the old tree  & put up the new tree in the same night.
Don't you just love how they stand on the couches to reach the high spots??

Here it is!! 
Isn't it pretty???
Next year, we're hoping to only decorate our tree once!!

It all looks beautiful.
Too funny about the too tall tree. Would have never thought to measure before buying.. I would have been in the same spot.

We bought a fake tree our first year here in FL. I thought I was going to miss having a real one, but it's actually been really nice. You can bend it the way you want it and it's great for heavy ornaments. ;-)

I bought a tree... brought it home, put it up, put lights on it, and 6 hours later it fell over. The stand is crap (it's a fake tree with a plastic stand)

I returned it thinking it was just a bum tree. We got the new one up, lights on, decoration on.. and this morning when I woke up, I see that it's severly leaning. Grrrrr.

It looks beautiful! I love your 'ladders' to reach the top of the tree! Haha!

I so wish we could decorate our tree all the way but between the cats and the toddler, it's all about minimalism. Sigh.

PS - I put the top stuff on my tree the same way.
