    So many cute and moving photos. Husband recently made me move my cardboard cutout of Barack down to the basement. I said, why?, he’s just going to be coming back up again in a couple months. But he’s jealous 🙂 and I did it to keep the peace. My little 1 yr. old grandson plays down there with all his toys and he points at Obama and says, “pres-nit guy”.

      Dotster, That entire comment is so funny! I love that you have a card board cut out of the President! Where ever did you get it? My husband would also have me send it to the basement as he has started to refer to the President as my “boyfriend.” “Pres-nit” guy from your grandson is so sweet too.

        My Indy daughter was working pt. time at a fun gift store, in addition to teaching, during the last campaign. They sold them there, and they sold like hotcakes. She got a big kick out of some of the little old ladies who would come in and all go giggling out the door, each with a lifesize Obama tucked under their arms. She gave one to me for a bday gift. It was a big hit!

    WOW WOW WOW Mr. Souza has outdone himself with these sets of pics. I honestly think these are my favs so far, just beautiful. President Obama remains perfection, so stunning. Love all the pics with children and the Miss Florida one.

    Love all these pictures. I’ve never seen a cardboad of Michelle before. He loves it. Miss Florida: I wonder if she knew she would be meeting the President. She seems surprised. Just love the babies. The president needs to make a tour of the US with the title: “Bring your baby to have a picture taken with President Obama.” :LOL:
    That is a sweet lttle girl, in make a wish……she is so fragile. I wonder if she has a bone disease or type1 DM.
    Oh my goodness went back up to the top and wow………..all these new ones added.

    Chipsticks you sure know how to keep us happy. Thank you. Now back to the top.

    Loved Malia’s dress in Chile. I think it’s a lovely spring dress, young, fun, and flirty.

    Michelle is stunning! The image of PBO with the Michelle cut out is adorable, but it does not compare to how completely gorgeous she looks in that last image. Their marriage and partnership is such a beautiful example for us all.

    OT…American Idol is so good tonight. I am entertained, I honestly can’t choose who to vote for, they are all slamming. 😀

    I’ve never seen or heard of a Secret Service agent bringing their children to meet the President. I suspect his little girl wanted to meet the President before her dad’s assignment ended…

    How precious. Thanks Pete for taking us thru this journey with this wonderful family and administration.

    All beautiful photos especially of the children and older folks. I especially like the photo of the justice an d his family. Hope they have a birth announcement in the local paper for master Eli Essiam Breyer the grandson of the supreme court justice. It is possible he too could be president.

    His is the face of the future I guarantee it.

    I’m always so happy to see pictures of our President with children. You can clearly see his genuine love for kids and the feeling is reciprocated. Children are the best judge of character!
