No tinsel because it's messy and unattractive;
Paper crafts made 4 years ago didn't have to adorn the tree; and
Not every single piece had to go on the tree.
An Elmo decoration could hang towards the back; and
They could hang any thing else where ever they liked.
For the first year our tree didn't look like evil, drunk elves decorated our tree.
In all the bonding and negotiating I had time to really notice the pieces we hung:
The Nutcracker. I'm not sure what types of nuts he likes to crack but I wouldn't trust him.
Babushka. Yes, everyone must know about the purple Christmas babushka. I think she must signify the gift of giving. But each gift is smaller than the last. Until you can't open the final one.
An angel. She looks like Medusa. Don't look directly at her of you will turn to stone.
