We have had our Christmas tree up for a week. We put up the ornaments last Monday, and within 24 hours the bottom half of the tree was stripped of ornaments by the cats and kids. It is really sad. Also, the boys seem to think that glass bulb ornaments are balls and are supposed to be thrown. I think they've broken nearly 10 already. We also have a bunch of plastic ornaments and bells and things that they like to play with and leave around the house to be stepped on.
