Torin’s letter from Mrs. Obama.

Think back… like, way, way waaaaaay back.  All the way back to October 9, 2010, when Torin wrote a letter to Mrs. Obama suggesting that she redecorate the White House to include a Pink Room or a Glitter Room.  Well, Torin finally got a response!  I cannot tell you how exciting it was for her to receive a large envelope from The White House.  She got several nice pictures, a cute little fact sheet about Bo (her favorite part), some activity sheets, and a nice letter  (she loved the official seal).  There was no mention of the Pink Room or Glitter Room in the letter, which we took as a good sign.  At least Mrs. Obama didn’t shoot down the idea completely.  Torin decided that the White House decorators must still be thinking about it.

What a wonderful response from Mrs. Obama. I still remember the one I received years ago from Jacqueline Kennedy.
