Have You Broken Decorations This Year?

No matter how carefully we pack away ornaments after the holidays, it seems like there's always some sad casualty during the tree-trimming process. Last year I broke two delicate glass ornaments, so I tried to be extra vigilant when wrapping them again 11 months ago. Since we're decorating the tree this weekend, I'll report back to let you know how many ornaments bite the dust.

Yeah a couple, but I've also broken two pint glasses and a bowl in the last two days so it's no surprise, I'm naturally clumsy :)

My daughter managed to break one of the shatter-proof ornaments- it was quite impressive.

My dog knocked a glass ball off of our Christmas tree and it shattered. I also accidentally pulled a piece off of another ornament, but that one is nothing that super glue won't fix.

I did yesterday. My friend, her son, brother, mom, and I were in my living room. I was sitting on our coffee table next to the tree. My friend's son is a baby and he went and hit the tree and a few things fell so my friend moved him. When he went to go back I went to move him and I knocked a glass ornaments off. My brother said my hand hit it, but I didn't feel or see it. I felt so bad.

Youngest daughter broke one when decorating the tree. casherc - what about a toothbrush once it dries to loosen it up and then either vaccum or sweep it up?

Can you let it dry and use a hand vac to suck it up? Or is that not powerful enough?

I didn't... but my little one broke one at Grandma's house!
