Well, I put the tree up last night; I had just gotten the lights done, when the power went out in the neighborhood! When it came back on a few minutes later, I saw that the tree was on the floor, and all of the water was also on the floor--which is wood laminate, and should never get very wet! I think Loki was the culprit--we had gotten the flashlight out, I grabbed it from DH's hand, and maybe Loki saw the beam moving, and tried to get it, and knocked the tree over. I'll put ornaments on later.
I actually have at least 6 trees in the house! The real one (big), and small fake ones around the house, upstairs and downstairs, even in the bathrooms (I'm obsessive, I guess). The tallest small tree is only about 3.5 ft. high, in an urn. I have 1 in the foyer, on a pillar/pedestal, and the other is in the family room, just on the floor now, awaiting a perch! I got them at CVS last year; they're indoor/outdoor, and pre-lit.
