Getting the tree to stand straight in the stand while the other two turn the screws to hold it in place. In this photo they were trying to figure out if some of the lower branches needed to be removed so that the tree would stand flat on the bottom.
Then I held the tree while Jen (my sister) made sure it was straight. K and C worked at making the tree straight for a few minutes, and finally got it to stay.
Stay tuned for more Christmas tree decorating..... And in related news, it's supposed to snow on Thursday!!!!! So excited.
