The Obamas welcome Cameron to the world

We had a wonderful trip to Hilton Head this past weekend to visit with my parents. I am in the process of downloading and editing the 800+ photos. We went a little crazy with the continuous shooting mode on my camera. But we got some great shots that I will be sharing over the next few days.

In the meantime, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a note from the Obamas welcoming Cameron into the world. A few months ago I sent in a letter to the White House with her birth date and our address. I had read online that you can do this within a year of your baby's birth and receive a signed note from the President and his wife.

The card reads, "Welcome to the world! Your arrival is a cause for great celebration for your proud family. We wish you a long an happy life filled with chances to learn, ideas to explore, people to love, and dreams to fulfill. Sincerely, Barack Obama / Michelle Obama"

I think I'm going to put it in a picture frame and hang it on her wall. If anyone else is interested in receiving your own congratulations, you can find directions here.

Oh that is fun. I remember writing the President as a kid in school & getting a letter. Very cool!
