I heard a big crash and knew what it was I am SO glad she was not under where it fell, she's 18 months and it did scare her. she just can't stay away from all the sparklies and lights etc. My friend said that they have tethered it to the wall before, good idea but there is a huge mirror on the wall where it's at this year. Luckily the tree isn't that big but what if it puntured her or get her eye somewhere...coulda been scary! little babies, and christmas trees...not friends LOL!
