1. the pictures are great.
the ones of President Obama and First Lady Michelle dancing together make this 50 something woman melt. You can see how much they love each other, and how smooth a dancer Obama is.

4. They are a beautiful couple. It is so clear how much he loves, respects
and treasures Michelle. I watched the whole thing on C-SPAN yesterday, and I was struck by
how he always went to her car door with her--didn't cede that to SS or aide--before getting in
himself on the other side.

And when Bushie was leaving, what a contrast. Laura had to run to catch up and take Bushie boy's arm.
Obama was there, holding hands with Michelle. Always by her side. This 50-something woman tears up
thinking about how Obama treats Michelle. Such class. That's a conscious, learned behavior. I wonder
if he grew up seeing his grandparents behaving that way.

7. #14 has to be the cutest I've ever seen!
I had to make my peace with the poufy polka dot thingies, though... ;-)

10. Nice pics! And they danced to "At Last" ...
http://www.links2love.com/love_lyrics_441.htm

At Last
~ Etta James

At last
my love has come along
my lonely days over
and life is like a song

Ooh, yeah, yeah
At last
the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
the night I looked at you

I found a dream
that I could speak to
A dream that I
can call my own
I found a thrill
to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Ohh, yeah, yeah

You smile
you smile
Ooh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
for you are mine at last

I wonder if this is a special song for them ... it seems to apply to US and him in any case!
