Yesterday we made our annual visit to the White House Christmas Tree (not the one inside...the public one on the Ellipse) and I'm working on a photo tour of DC at Christmas for those of you who don't get to visit often. Stay tuned...it might take me a few days. I have a lot of wrapping (I HATE wrapping) cooking, etc. to do so it might take all week. I leave you with a photo of my children from 2005...the year that my older son saw the picketers in front of the White House, and spent the rest of the day telling me that he wanted to picket the White House (note the little brother stifling dissent from the Left). When we got home that day, I had to cut up some cardboard boxes so he could make picket signs. We still have them. A political consciousness was awakened.
