Is there a conspiracy against my tree?

Well, I just got done putting my tree back in a standing position AGAIN!  I was working in the dining room while the boys were playing.  I happened to look over just as Caleb pulled the tree down on himself for the SECOND time.  Two more ornaments bit the dust in the fall, in addition to the ornament he broke this morning.  I thought that all the breakable ornaments were out of reach, but I guess I was wrong.

Once again, I didn't have my camera for this photo op.  Needless to say, putting the tree up the first time is the most enjoyable time.  The times that the tree is pulled over...not so much.

To add insult to (my tree's) injury, Lima pooped all over the carpet and my tree skirt the other day.  She had a little tummy problem.  The tree skirt was ruined.  The carpet needs a little more work.  But my poor tree, which is now leaning a little, has no skirt.  Oh, the horror!

We've never had these tree problems before, but we were in a little house last Christmas and Caleb wasn't mobile, and when Micah was Caleb's age, the tree was barricaded between the couch and the love seat.  I guess next year should be better.  But I am determined that the tree will stay UP this year.  I just have to make it one more week without any calamities.  Here's hoping!

Thanks for visiting real mom kitchen. The original recipe for cereal candy includes 4 cups of each of the kix, special k, cheerios, and rice chex. Just as long as you have 16 cups you can do any combination.
