Oh Happy, Happy Day!



Fingers (and toes) crossed for the new administration.

I watched it with my coworkers in the library via a live Internet stream. It was lightly snowing outside. Very peaceful.

How about you?

  1. I watched it online while my kids were watching Ariel. Shoulda made them watch Obama, he's a much better role model.

    And I've got to admit, when they announced him and he walked out of the White House, I teared up.

    I just hope he lives up to the hopes we have for him.

  2. Pretty cool. I'm wearing my orange belt and orange shirt to celebrate. Why? Cuz. Doesn't everyone celebrate with orange?

  3. Live streamed at home on the couch after I dropped the kids off at school. Plugged in the big JBL speakers. I cried.

  5. It's thrilling! I'm so excited. Although I hope he doesn't suffer from overly high expectations. I know he'll do his best, but even the best people make mistakes. It's our job to stand behind him no matter what. I see brighter days ahead :)

  6. Watched it during school. It was mandatory! YAY! and LOVE!

    Surprising, though. 90% of the kids at my school are "NObama"
