Posted on 12/06/2004 3:09:38 PM PST by GretchenM

Saturday, the president, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld and Condi Rice met with Pakistan's President Musharraf at the White House. Bush said, "We discussed international politics. I assured President Musharraf that there is an opportunity at hand to work toward the development of a Palestinian state and peace in the Middle East." He gave his radio address, saying, "We must do everything necessary to confront and defeat the terrorist threat, and that includes intelligence reform. By remaining focused and determined in these efforts, we will strengthen the safety of our citizens and defend our nation from harm." Vice President Dick Cheney will lead the US delegation to Afghan President Hamid Karzai's December 7 inauguration, the White House announced. The president went to the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia.

Sunday, the First Couple went to St. John's Church in DC. He presented awards at the 27th annual national celebration of the arts.

Monday: On an international level, Bush met with Iraqi interim President Ghazi al-Yawar; Jordan's King Abdullah II; and Senegal's President Abdoulaye Wade. On the national scene, he met with Dennis Hastert and Tom DeLay from the House of Representatives, and Senator Bill Frist, on Bush's proposal to overhaul Social Security. Laura Bush hosted Viviane Wade, wife of President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal, for tea. The First Couple enjoyed time with some of our youngest citizens with a Children's Christmas reception and program in the East Room of the White House.

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.

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?

I was surprised at how much prettier the card is in one's hands than online. So much more detail shows.

Thank you for the great pictures! I knew the ones with the children would be precious.

And Hollywood starlets could take a lesson from Dr. Rice on how to look glamorous.

Received my RNC calendar today. Wow there are some fantabulous pics of the president in it! :-)

"Received my RNC calendar ... "

I was going to go online today and request one -- if you gave during 2004, do you automatically get an '05 calendar? Or should I send more $$ and request one specifically?

Maybe it has to do with the fact that all my contemporary relatives who've gone into military service have joined the Navy ... I don't know, but something in me melts when I see a man in perfect dress uniform, and he's Navy.

But then, I am an absolute sucker for the sea. It's a good thing I live close to it. I think I'd go crackers if I had to be away from the salt air, sunsets on the Pacific, sea breezes, ships blowing their fog horns, the ocean's rhythms and how they speak to the cycles of life (to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens), the feeling of great expanse and freedom imparted when viewing the massive, incomprehensibly massive, waters ... ah, the sea!

Great pics! I missed seeing any pics of the President at the Army Navy game, so these are great.

Doesn't Condi look smashing!

I bet it is killing Elton, Warren, Ossie & Ruby to get a medal from our guy, but it is an honor and they have to just stand there and take it. I love it.
