Christmas in Kansas

We arrived to balmy 55 degrees at midnight. I was thinking this was the warmest Christmas we'd ever spent in Kansas (at least in recent memory). The next morning, my dd and I made our way to Lawrence to Allen Fieldhouse. She's a Senior this year and very excited about how well the football team has done and is crazy about roundball. This is the scene inside. Here we are, decked out in blue and red, rock chalking with the best of them.

Of course, KU won. All the while, the weather was changing rapidly. Here's the car when we got out.Here's me inside, sopping wet after walking through the ice and snow.

Here's Peyt cleaning off the car. I would have helped, but we only had one pair of gloves between us (they were mine).

We made it home safely by driving extremely slow and being patient. Thankfully, it didn't snow anymore while we were there. Basketball gifts were in big demand.
And KU Jayhawk items were very popular.

What a fun Christmas you had. I lived in Topeka many years ago and totally understand the weather change. Happy New Year to you!

Thanks for sharing the pictures. What a great looking group of kids - and all smiles at Christmas!

OK, what is rock chalking? Glad you had a good time.

Happy New Year!
