The White House has just released photos of its holiday decorations. The First Lady's theme for this year is Reflect, Rejoice, Renew (as we are still a nation with troops fighting two wars and in the midst of a recession), and she opted to re-use holiday decorations from past White House administrations and things found in the White House Kitchen Garden. We love that her ideas can be used by tweens to inspire their own homemade decorations.
Check out pics of this year's White House Gingerbread House - it weighs about 400 pounds! It's covered in white chocolate and includes the White House Kitchen Garden in marzipan and Bo in marzipan - how cute is that? After Christmas this confection will be moved to the White House Visitor Center for the public to view.
And here's a video by ABC News of the White House Pastry Chef, Bill Yosses, talking about the process of building this year's gingerbread house with shots of Bo in marzipan, the Kitchen Garden, and the dining room in dark chocolate.
