In honor of this great day, the Bush daughters wrote a note full of tips for the Obama girls. They suggested that Sasha and Malia "slide down the banister of the solarium, go to T-ball games, have swimming parties, and play Sardines on the White House lawn."
In honor of Sasha and Malia Obama moving into the White House, we're giving away a set of signed hardcover copies of the FIRST DAUGHTER novels by Mitali Perkins! To enter, all you have to do is complete this sentence in the comments below:
"Hey, Sasha and Malia, here's my number #1 tip about surviving life as a FIRST KID: ______________."
... how to jump on the White House beds. Laura Bush tells all:
It was fun for the girls to get to show (Sasha and Malia) not only that room, but the way the big cross hall can be an obstacle course for little kids to run up and down, and the solarium ramp that you can slide down on your bottom. So they showed them all the special tricks.
... We did a little bed jumping, the girls sort of showed them -- it wasn't the Lincoln Bedroom, it was another bedroom with a very tall bed that we usually put a step out for people to step into when they stay in that room. But instead the little girls did the running jump, and Barbara and Jenna of course aided and abetted that jumping.
When the Obama girls' Mom went to D.C., she checked out two schools for the girls: Georgetown Day School and Sidwell Friends School, where Chelsea Clinton attended. Both are private.
The Obama family isn't selling their house in Chicago, but a moving truck will cart their favorite stuff to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on January 20th, 2009. Oh, and Grandma Marian Robinson is going with them.
President-to-be Obama: Renegade
Michelle Obama: Renaissance
Malia Obama: Radiance
Sasha Obama: Rosebud
The First Daughters in waiting were invited to be on the Disney Channel's hit show. Billy Ray Cyrus seems hopeful that it's going to happen, but after watching their family in action for over a year now, I'd be surprised if Dad and Mom allowed it. But oh, the girls are going to be disappointed, because they're big Miley Cyrus fans.
The campaign's over.
I've been tracking the candidates and their kids since MARCH 24, 2007, and it's a strange feeling to say goodbye to the process and wait for the results.
So here's a shout-out to all the other campaign junkies out there. It's time to give up our addiction and rock the vote.

Meghan McCain says her Dad usually goes to the movies to fight Election Day stress, and my guess is an action-adventure flick like Max Payne since the Senator's a 24 fan. Meghan's superstition is wearing purple, as she confessed to People Magazine this week.
He thinks their corpse bride and evil fairy costumes aren't scary enough, but Senator Obama is in Chicago today to be with his daughters for trick or treating.
