With a record count of 40, our family arrived from all over the U.S. to southeast Kansas for our annual Christmas celebration. The youngest in attendance was 5; the oldest was 91.
Some of us met first in Kansas City for a couple of days that included shopping and dinners out, seeing the movie, Invictus, attending a KU basketball game in Lawrence (those fans are AVID), and catching up with good friends who live there.

One afternoon, Amy Uyeki, Rees Hughes, and I took a walk around the sculpture gardens surrounding the Nelson-Adkins Museum of Art and the nearby Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.
