president obama is in the house... (the white house, that is...)



He had a very busy day, but that didn't stop President Barack H. Obama from stopping by my kids' school today for a little volunteer time. The kids were so excited to see him and even though he was in a hurry, he stayed to greet them hello on this special morning.

He even hung out for some photo opps...

He seemed a little stiff, but nerves will do that to a person, don't you think?


Later on, after the festivities and because we weren't invited to any of the official inaugural balls, we had our own ball with Rachel Maddow on the tube and some Obama cookies.


And then we ate them... Yummy Baracko-cookies... (Okay, Naomi licked hers, but it seems generally wrong to talk about licking presidents)Rock on #44!...

It was an amazing day... Besides being pretty much glued to CNN all day, I can't get over what Obama's election means for our country and I seriously have hope for our future. It was such an intensely positive day--everyone seemed so happy and together in their optimisim. Truly, it feels like a real person who understands real issues became president today.
Hope may actually be more than a tagline...

Unfortunately the Obama cookies looked better than they tasted. Nothing could ruin the mood of the day, though!

Those cookies look awesome! Where did you get them? Also, is that Obama beer? I want!

You're right about it being such an amazing day. It's weird, but I actually feel more safe with him in office. I hope he turns out to be all that we expect of him!
