...We weren't kidding!!!
Notice all of the pine needles on the floor!!!
I've never killed a tree before... well, not before Christmas anyway! It was really sad... and scary. We were very hesitant to turn the lights on, but when we did we had the fire extinguisher handy! haha.
This was the clean up after dragging the tree outside. I'm pretty sure there was only one pine needle still standing on the tree when all was said and done! So sad... We really did get the perfect tree this year! :-(
