Day 9 - Jan 9th

I was taking down and putting away the Christmas tree when I got the inspiration for this photograph. Jill's folks used to live and work in the Washington, DC area and in 1997, began giving us the White House ornament of the year and they've continued to do so every year since then. They are beautiful, delicate ornaments with a historical insert that always teaches us something. It's become one of those traditions we look very forward to each year! These beautiful ornaments are treasured by our family.

This years ornament celebrated the second term of Grover Cleveland - the only President to serve two non consecutive terms. His second term saw the first time a Christmas tree sported electric lights in the White House.
