Pink :: You are so lucky to be in D.C.
I know you are out of town for the actual festivities today but I am so envious of all the things your family has experienced since living there in the thick of things. Your girls will have a greater understanding of how this country works from having spent time there. All the sights and events you have dragged them to and documented will be such wonderful memories for them.
I love the idea that we came up with the last week to do with our families to mark today's occasion. I am going to make it a tradition we will do every four years. We will write a Thank You note to the outgoing (or re-elected) President expressing gratitude for his service to our country. And then a Welcome to your New Home card for the incoming President and their family. We will wish them well in the days to come and let them know they are in our prayers. And this will be done whether we agree with their politics or not. Because being the President of the United States cannot be an easy job — for them or for their families. They seem to age right before my eyes with all the stress. So anyone willing to do the job deserves a "Good Luck" and a "Thank You" along with our prayers. We are each going to write our own note at our house. Little Think will no doubt draw President Bush and President Obama a nice patriotic cat picture as well.
Probably getting teary with all the pomp & circumstance on my TV :: Think

Dear Eavesdroppers ::
If you are signed up in our 2Clever Club to get Eavesdropper Emails,
you will get a copy (at least we hope it works) of the personalized
cards for President Bush and President Obama shown in the photo above to print out. (The Bushs are walking away with Barney their dog and The Obamas put up pink poka dot curtains in the East Wing for their girls) Plus the addresses of where to send
them. It was a little tricky to track down an
address for President Bush's new home. (Lucky Think lives where she does) Print out as many as your family needs. Thanks in advance for always being cool and giving us credit if you pass the email, the ideas or the artwork along to a friend.
If you would like to sign up, click the icon on the upper right sidebar. You will get the next Email we send out in a few weeks.
