Christmas at the White House

You know how the saying goes…Never refuse an invitation to the White House!  I’m pretty sure the etiquette folks were talking about the formal, engraved and calligraphied ones. Still, when Jenni B. offered to take me as her guest for a walk-through tour to see this year’s decorations, I was quick to say yes.  I’ve been several times in the last few years, but this year’s Red, White & Blue Christmas  theme is by far the pretttiest. Here are just a few shots:

The stairs leading to The Residence are my favorite place in the White House, I always think about all the people who've gone up and down them through the years, and wonder what it looks like beyond the rope...

I took some pictures of the White House china, and will share that in a later post!
