How To Decorate a Christmas Tree

Christmas trees are an important symbol of Christmas. It is essential that they are decorated properly.

Mommy and Daddy needed some help this year. They've tried to enlist help from Trixie and Emmet in the past, but Trixie just sits on the couch and Emmet tries to lick all of the ornaments. Now that I'm two, I am an able and willing elf.

Little did Mommy and Daddy know that I am an expert in tree decorating. I've seen Charlie Brown's Christmas special.

Follow these simple steps, and you will enjoy a beautiful tree that would envoke envy from even Martha Stewart.

When choosing beads, pick out the shiniest, goldest beads that you can find. Gather them all in one place on the tree for the most dramatic impact.

Gold beads can perform double duty - a tree decoration AND joo-wry (aka, "jewelry").

When Mommy and Daddy aren't looking, go bowling with the colored balls. It's fun watching Emmet chase after them!

When putting on the ornaments, choose carefully. Be very delicate when opening the hanging ribbon.

Before you actually hang the ornament, kiss it, hold it up to the branch you chose, make sure you are happy with the branch, then hang it carefully.

Hours later, after painstakingly choosing the perfect branch for each ornament, step back and enjoy your masterpiece.
The final step is to hope that Santa puts some gifts under your tree on Christmas Eve!

For those of you who are more visual learners, here is a quick step-by-step tutorial.
