Christmas at The White House 2017



All I can say is, "Wow!" 

Walking In - There were tiny lights on the
branches that you can't see. Very pretty.



We started on the ground floor with the Library,
Vermeil, and China rooms. You can only look 
into these rooms.






Pictures taken from inside 
The White House.



The big East Room
Martha and George Washington


There are four fireplaces in this room, 
two on each side. They are on the side of
the Washington's portraits.


The Nativity

Then onto the Green, Red, and Blue
rooms, which you can walk through.











State of Idaho Seal ornament.  I could not
find the Washington one.



Upstairs to The Grand Foyer




Sister Karren/Elder Jarrard



Out the back door.






Then a bathroom trip across the street to the
Willard Intercontinental. 


Top left square has the seal of Idaho.

Mount Vernon Gingerbread House - took 300 hours to build,
weighs 250 lbs., 50 lbs. of powdered sugar, 100 lbs. of salt
dough, 75 lbs. of flour, and over 1,000 fondant tiles.

Festival of Lights

Washington D.C. Temple and Visitor's Center Festival of Lights - you had to be there. There were thousands of lights, pictures do not do it justice.
