Happy New Year - The End of our Tree Project

One of my favorite projects this year - and also for our family and to anyone how visits our house - has been our tree. Unfortunately just before Christmas due to the strength and persistence of our #3 bunny our Christmas tree had a nasty accident.

We only lost two ornaments and the stick snapped in several places. No small child was harmed in the accident - but we all felt a little sad.

We had all been stuck inside due to snow falling outside when the incident happened. Feeling a little sad we decided to rescue what we could of the now year long project. My eldest bunny really loves to use scissors so her paper snowflakes made a perfect decoration. The vase and branch is now on the kitchen counter - I don't put it past #3 to make it up there and demolish it some more - but so far it has stayed out of his reach.

Here is a little recap of our tree.

Wish you and your family a wonderful 2014 & thank you so much for reading.

Thank you - it has been a really fun project - I'm kind of sad the branch came to a bit of a grisly end.

Oh, how I hope you'll make another. It is a simply lovely tradition and I so looked forward to seeing the tree's changing wardrobe over the course of the year. Just love it! And I know the little bunnies loved it too.
