Well, there was a huge debate over where to put it this year because of the girls. We ended up putting it in the corner of the living room next to the pellet stove (first mistake) and the heater (second mistake).
Yesterday while Finley was tugging on the garland (again) I heard needles dropping like crazy on the Christmas presents.
This morning we get up and Gary and I are looking at the tree and it looks horrible! All the needles were falling off, they were everywhere. We were both convinced it wasn't going to last another day! I don't know if we killed it because it was so close to the heat or what but the damn thing was dead!
So......we undecorated the damn thing, chucked it outside (in the back yard of course so the neighbors weren't talking about the crazy people who killed their tree 10 days before Christmas) and Gary headed out to the tree lot down the street to get us another tree. Yep, another flipping tree.
We put the lights back up and garland and I guess sometime before Christmas we will decorate it.
Here are some pics of the carnage
After pulling off the ornaments, lights and garland
Gillian decided to walk through them......
And didn't like it! (Don't worry no babies were harmed)
