    Oh my gosh, that is one precious picture!!

      One of the cutest pictures I’ve ever seen.

        Agreed! What a bunch of cuties. The look on the little guy’s face looking up at PBO is priceless. He’ll treasure it when he gets a bit older to really understand. Although he seems pretty aware right now. Remember PBO quieting the crying baby when no one else could? Amazing.

          Looks like somebody (the little guy) said something REALLY funny and is being appreciated (=cautioned :lol:) by the big guy. Look at the lady in the back row trying to hold back her laughter and look at the faces of all the adults. Then look again at the cute on little guy’s face. That one looks mischievously sharp! ๐Ÿ˜† Great pic!

    Thanks for this wonderful picture, love is still alive and well. Check out the lady in the red & black print dress in the back. She is in awe, with her hand over her mouth. And the little boy and Pres look like they have a real connection. This picture make you feel all warm and fuzzy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I bet he was indoctrinating those poor innocent kids, turning them into socialist Brown Shirts and recruiting them for his Army. That’s why he’s leaning over, whispering secretly and quietly.

    Sereiously, thanks for the pics. Good eye candy.

      Yes, that baby in the background in the bib looks particularly indoctrinated. So adorable!

    PBO and his family keep pressing on. Their lives are so full of love, purpose, and friendship that they have no time for the haters out there.

    The little boy looks a bit like PBO; two cuties together!

    As i look at this picture and think back over all the bullshit this man has/is going through, it makes me want to cry. This man as a set so big that an elephant couldn’t carry ’em without a wagon. And low lives are constantly shooting at his wife too. I’d have lost my mind. Orange Julius would have been found dead at the second hole and Flush would no longer be able to get drugs in the U. S. i would have gone beserk by now.

      sad isn’t ?

    • October 4, 2011 at 8:36 pm

      I really don’t know how he does it. He’d obvioudly a very healthy person. Like you, yardarm, I’d be beside myself. Way, way, way, way too much cruelty.

      ๐Ÿ˜€ They are simply amazing, and we are blessed.

      I seem to be overflowing with tears today, the beauty of this photograph turned my faucets on, again!

      • October 4, 2011 at 8:46 pm

        Big fresh bouquet to you, Sue.

      • October 4, 2011 at 8:48 pm

        So lovely to see you posting regularly Sue, I hope you know how much we missed you ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Thank you Chipsticks, but not nearly as much as I MISSED YOU!

            Oh, Sue just let your beautiful tears flow. You are such a beautiful and gracious spirit. I am so grateful that you are up and about again. We all missed you so much. I have candles going again, so know that I am thinking of you as well.

            I am now catching up on the rest of the beautiful comments and great news. I was on twitter late doing some one by one twits about the deficient bridges and jobless rates. Decided to post the site and then my spirit said study each state and twit each state. Might catch the eye of a person if seeing the state. Friends, family, etc. I felt better afterwards.

            Sue, please have some restful time as well. Do not get up too soon, if you do not feel like it. You do what your spirit dictates to you. I will continue to think very positive thoughts for you each day. We will make it through all of this. We have each other here in our family as well. Our President gives us energy as well.

            We are so blessed to have our haven here with Chips. What a beautiful spirit she has through all of the hard work that she does daily for all of us. I love her spirit and kindness. It keeps me steady with our focus of what we need to do to continue with our wonderful President. Ending the day with that beautiful photo with the children is so precious. Keep your spirit up, Sue. I love you back also.HZ

      I am with you yardarm756…”I would have done beserk by now”…I say this all the time. God kwen what he was during when he gave this assignment to President Obama and the First Family. I can’t even imagine anyone else being able to do what they do. These people are truly special and I am so proud of them!!! Everyday I thank God for them….for they lives, their courage, their confidence, their faith…I pray that God continue to watch over them…continue to light their paths and guide their steps, give them the right words to say at the right time…may Gd continue to lift them up, and hold them in the safety and comfort of God’s bosom!

    Just precious…..I love seeing PBO with children. Just think if we let the children pick our representatives maybe we’d be a better country. Thanks Chips for giving us something to make us smile ( I feel my blood pressure going down). :).

    This man oozes class. look at the smiles on the faces of the kids and adults. Easily the most charismatic person in American politics today. Have a great night all.

      He’s practically the only charismatic person in American politics today … plus Joe and Nancy! And a few others. But it’s a small group, that’s for sure.

    Such a heartwarming photo—-beautiful. I loved the other ones where he was crouching down on the kids’ level too, making a connection. Obama and kids——tells you all you need to know. You can see his heart and soul. Period. End of story.

    Awww.. this is too cute for words. We have a lab school at UT Austin and the kids there are so cute. They do a lot of good at the lab school; help kids learn to self-regulate, use more mature speech, learn how to use pretend play and a lot more stuff. Good on ya President Obama for highlighting the importance of early education for children.

    Good night Chips and TOD family. I am roaming late tonight, rather morning now on the coast. Just so much to think about and pray and meditate upon. We are so blessed even in the midst of the unkind spirits. We will prevail. Keep the love flowing within our family here. Thank you so much, Chips. I love you back also.HZ
