Feel free to laugh. This is what I call my Charlie Brown tree. Due to space and money and a lack of both, this is the 3rd (and last) year that this sad little thing is my family Christmas tree. I think I've seen bigger lava lamps. It's okay though. The kids love it, even if they are both taller than it.

The saving grace is there are a lot of ornaments my kids made themselves, even some with their own pictures on them. That and it's just cozy enough. My children are never with me on the actual holiday; they're always visiting their mother in Florida. So this is just enough to get them excited and in the spirit.
