Christmas with the First Ladies
Now that December is here it’s time to start decorating, planning crafts for W, and most of all, it’s time to think about what to buy. I was sent this great book, Christmas with the First Ladies: The White House Decorating Traditions from Jacqueline Kennedy to Michelle Obama. Let’s face it, no one decorates for Christmas like they do at the most famous house in America. I’ve always been fascinated by long-standing traditions, especially traditions of past and present First Ladies.
While flipping through this book I came across a few things that I’d like to recreate for Christmas. Since I’ll have about two weeks off from work I’ll have some free time to bake and craft a little more. The one project I’m going to do next week are Michelle Obama’s Gingerbread Ornaments. My family used to make these when I was growing up. It will be fun to share something with W that I did when I was younger.
