I was so excited because this is what we woke up to this morning...
Woo hoo! I am just like a kid when it comes to snow! :) School was cancelled, so we got to sleep in and enjoy the day watching the Inauguration. I have been watching all the ceremonies and celebrations all day and feeling so patriotic. No matter who you voted for, it is such an historical event.
I loved seeing the huge crowds and all the flags waving.
I have been dying to talk to Laura and Lindy all day, but haven't been able to get through to them on their cell phones. I know they are FREEZING since they have been standing outside since 6:00 this morning, but this is something they will never forget! They were in that huge throng of people in front of the Capitol and now they are going to the parade. I hope they call soon, but I just heard on the news that the cell phone system in Washington has been taxed almost to the point of crashing. I probably won't hear from them until late tonight.
And, I have to say that the Obama girls are just precious. They are so patient and well behaved. I know there are lots of pros and cons about growing up in the White House. But I believe the Obamas will do all they can to keep them grounded.
I am also proud of the way our country transfers power. What other country in the world does this in such a peaceful and dignified way? That makes me so glad to be an American!
There are a couple of other things I wanted to share with you...
There is a new prayer blog for Harper Stamps.
