Hey, all, I received my Christmas card from the White Hosue today! I don't know why I'm so far down on the list, it doesn't seem to arrive by order of the alphabet for one's last name ... but you know, it really did something for me to receive it, even though it's not hand-signed. It's a neat tradition.
G'day Gretchen! Thanks for the ping and looking forward to today's dose... :0)

I got my card last week. It was delayed because I moved and it was forwarded. Don't you think it is prettier in person than it was in the pictures we saw of it? I do. I put it next to my gorgeous picture of George and Laura that they sent. What a thrill huh?
