Let the Tour Begin!

Our view at the start of the White House holiday tour. We learned a few impressive stats on our way inside: 85 volunteers worked from Thanksgiving evening through Tuesday of the following week putting together craft displays and installing them across the White House. Literally an "army of Christmas elves" transformed the White House into a holdiay wonderland! The volunteers, many of them military families, applied on WhiteHouse.gov for the honor -- and the work!
