Christmas Trees
Do you have real or fake? Which do you prefer? How is yours set up to keep it away from the little one?

Re: Christmas Trees
We have a real Christmas tree.

We set it up and have presents under it and just teach the babies to be nice to it. We haven't had problems with any of our kids ever trying to do anything to the tree,ornaments,presents to be honest.

Re: Christmas Trees
Ours is fake. It's just easier for us. Surprisingly Piper doesn't bother it at all.

Re: Christmas Trees
Lily is one of those babies who wants to investigate everything. Anything paper is completely irresistible, so we have to keep Christmas trees blocked off when we are visiting family. She is very like I was at that age. Very curious.

Re: Christmas Trees
We do real every year. Usually we go to a local tree farm and cut one down ourselves. That didn't happen this year with the weather and DH's schedule so we got a real one from lowes.

We put it in the dining room kinda behind the table. Carter could get to it but he never really messed with it. I was very surprised. I thought it was going to be impossible to keep him away from it

Re: Christmas Trees
We use a fake tree.
I put all non breakable ornaments on the bottom half of the tree. Did not put out presents until a few days before.

Re: Christmas Trees
We did fake this year... we usually do real, but I didn't want to deal w/ the mess this year. Emma did very well with the tree, I told her NO when she got near it to mess w/ ornaments. We didn't have to gate it off at all. I put some presents under the tree about a week before christmas and they didn't get messed w/ either.
