The One with Christmas Inspiration

We were supposed to be in Denver for Christmas this year. But when Fox got sick the doctor x-nayed our travel plans so we stayed here and had our first Christmas as Evans Party of Three. Last night we opened one gift each. Chris got me a Christmasy DVD and I got him a Mad Gab/Picto Gab card game. We were having fun sounding out the clues and laughing it up. Then we came across this card:

I laughed soooooo hard I cried. (It says, "Ten 'fork' Holler Auto = Denver, Colorado). As if we weren't missing family enough we had to be reminded of it! Haha. It was a classic moment we'll always remember.

I know Christmas is officially over in just a couple hours, but blog posts are permanent so here are just a few Christmas-y things I love:
Light strands in the shape of a Christmas tree from A Merry Mishap:
