The tree has been with us for five years and it's been a good tree. It's withstood the family cats, child number one, and I was hoping it would make it thru child number two but much to my dismay, Charlie Brown has come to our house this year.
I'm not exactly sure how it happened but it appears to now have an unnatural lean from the top third up. Picture the tree in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". And to add further insult, it is only decorated from the middle to the top.
Baby K has now added "tree wrecker" to her resume. To stop further desecration we have pushed a large tote full of toys up to the base of the tree to hinder her pillaging.
It's an embarassing tree, really. There will be no full-size pictures of the tree this year and it has been decided that the tree will take immediate retirement after this season :-)
Here's a few up-close pics of the girls putting ornaments on said tree.

And here's a photo of my wonderful Aunt M celebrating her 60th birthday! Aunt M-you don't look a day past 35!
