We put the Christmas tree up last night with the lights and today we dressed it up with the ornaments. This year we have to put the tree in the corner of the livingroom because of where our turtle is located. Anyway after we had all the ornaments on the tree, Todd laid on the floor scooted under the tree to slide the tree closer to the corner of the room. SNAP, one of the legs on the stand snapped right off. The tree fell thank goodness toward the wall; only 6 ornaments fell off and none broke.
We had an old tree stand from when we had a 9 foot Christmas tree, so as Jordan and I held the tree up Todd scooted under the tree and the 3 of us lifted the tree off the old stand and onto the other stand. So now our tree is in position sitting in a nice BIG sturdy stand.
