White House Holidays

My own apartment is pathetically decorated, so I am living vicariously through the White House’s decorations this year. It’s the People’s House, after all!

At Holidays 2012 | The White House you can get all of the following:

  • A recipe for Ginger Crinkle cookies from The White House Pastry Kitchen [I’ll be baking them next week!]
  • A download of the official 2012 Holiday Bookmark [It features Bo!]
  • Instructions on how to make your own holiday snow globe, one of the featured decorations in the White House this year [Yay for arts & crafts time!]

You can also look at pictures of the holiday decorations through the years (I love that the Kennedy family took a sleigh ride on the South Lawn), and watch a video of the First Family turning on the Christmas lights.

    I love having holiday decor, but I do less of it if no one is coming over to see it. Still, gotta have the Christmas tree.

    Bo is cute 🙂

  3. Bo! He’s so adorable. I was actually watching a behind-the-scenes about the decorations the other day and I saw them putting together the life-sized Bo replica. I’m also ridiculously thrilled that the National Christmas Tree came from the county where I live.
