Congratulations President Obama!

*Sigh.* I am so happy, SO pleased about today's proceedings. The girls and I watched the entire thing (well, I watched while they played), and it was just great. During the swearing in, the three of us snuggled on the couch under a Red Sox fleece blanket, and the girls were actually quiet and paying attention. We discussed the new President, said his name about a billion times, and talked about how smart he and his wife are, and how adorable their girls are.

Rory & Fiona ate lunch on brand new Barack Obama place mats, and kept trying to feed him bits of food (Jell-O was the most popular item to share). His head takes up about 1/3 of the left side of the place mats (picture to follow), so it is almost life-sized. He didn't seem very hungry. Perhaps that is how he stays so slender.

Congratulations to the Obama family, and many congratulations to our nation! Brings a tear to the eye.
