Washington White House Christmas

The First  family opened the Christmas season this week with festivities at Presidential Park and the White House. First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a tour of the decorated White House.  More than 80 volunteers from 26 states worked on the decorations.... I wonder how you get on that decorating committee... .If you missed it I'll share some of it with you here....




The annual White House Christmas Tree Delivery... This year an 18 foot Douglas fir is delivered to the Blue Room which is the official location of the White House tree




Lions tigers and bears....Oh my!

 


This is a beautiful LED tree....Yep it works Mr. President.
Wednesday was the official lighting of the national Christmas Tree in Presidents Park.



The Douglas Fir decorated in the Blue Room.
 


I absolutely love the decorated Red Room.
