As you can see by the date, this is a few weeks ago. After we got Trevor off to school, we spent a lot of Epiphany undecking the tree.
This year, we brought the tree in a little too soon. The needles just fell off as soon as you brushed against them already at Christmas.
Once the decorations were off, Connor & Diana had all kinds of fun running their fingers along the branches to make the needles drop off the tree.
Then we swept them, and then vacuumed them.
Lee snipped off the bare branches and it was pretty easy to contain all the mess to one corner since nothing dropped off the tree pole anymore!
