Merry Christmas from the Obama's

Usually I am not a very lucky person. I don't really win contests and I never catch any of the prizes at Jazz games but this luck all changed last week. I entered a lottery in November to see the National Christmas Tree Lighting at the White House and I won 5 tickets!! We were really far away from the stage and the tree but it was still pretty cool.

Big Time Rush (the group from the Nickelodeon show) performed for Sasha and Malia. I personally had hoped they would ask for the Biebs but I guess they have seen enough of him. Then the President himself delivered a Christmas message and brought up the entire Obama clan to turn on the tree. It is a much smaller tree this year because the one that had been there for 30 years was destroyed in a storm.

Ella Goulding performed and if you don't know who she is look her up. She is great. Enough so that she sang at the Royal wedding. Michelle Obama read Twas the Night Before Christmas with Kermit the Frog. Santa made an appearance. Rodney Atkins, the country singer, also performed. The night ended with One Republic singing their one and only original Christmas song. They were awesome!

It hasn't felt like Christmas around here with the weather so warm and not being home so this was the perfect way to set the mood and kick off the holiday season!
