Living with the President

I realize you don't have to look hard to find politics in the news. One practically stumbles over the constant updates just by turning on the radio. And yet, here's another post about politics but I assure you, this you haven't heard.




The neighborhood I live in has several get-togethers throughout the year. December is the month we choose a new president to oversee the following year's activities. Guess who didn't duck fast enough...





Meet the new neighborhood President and his First Lady.
(This picture is from a previous, much earlier campaign.)

Which makes this character the Speaker of the House.

Not so rare photograph of me doing what I do best - talking.

You'll make a great Speaker! ;)

RED MOJO said...

Are those your parental units? So cute. Have a great term in office!

Beth: I do like to speak. :o)

Red: yes, that would be their engagement photo. Dashing aren't they!

Craze said...

Congrats!! Sounds pretty darn interesting.

Shankar said...

A definite improvement over Nancy Pelosi.

Burg said...

You REALLY look like your dad, which kind of proves he'd be a pretty girl I guess.

Craze: first item - the dead tree at the entrance. If you call that interesting.

Shankar: Why thank you. Hopefully my first 100 days will be news worthy.

Burg: I'm not sure if I should say thank you or laugh at the mental of my dad being a pretty girl. :o)

Dean said...

That seems like a pretty risqué photo, exp given the date it was taken. Looks like the presidency is already plagued with scandals. And you look pretty shady in the last picture, like you aren’t telling the truth or something.

Rachel and her Brasileiros said...

charlotte you are pretty

Paul and Sarah said...

Is that a vest you're wearing? Or just a sweater? I can't figure this one out.

And I completely agree with Dean on the risque-ness of your parents engagements picture. But considering she told me that their first real kiss was after they were married . . . I find it completely un-risque.
Does she read this?
I hope not.

Christy said...

Charlotte, you look just like your dad! In a more feminine way, of course.

Jared and Katy said...

First that picture of your mom and dad is COMPLETELY cute. And your mom sort of looks like Kate Winslet. Then the picture of you in SO "in the moment" I love it!

Travis Butterfield said...

I hope you don't get tired of hearing this, but, you look gorgeous in that picture. Stunning, actually.

Travis Butterfield said...

p.s. is that a huge bruise on your wrist? what the heck? does your boyfriend beat you or something?

charlotta-love said...

Dean: your comment made mom laugh. me too. Miss you!

Rachel: aww, thanks.

Sarah: Neither. It's an open v-neck shirt that connects at the bottom. Charlotte Russe last season. Oh, and Mama Mia loved your comment. :o)

Christy: I hope I'm more feminine! thanks though.

Katy: My parentals are cute!

Travis: I never tire of compliments. :o) As for the bruise, it's a birthmark.

Travis Butterfield said...

whew. birthmarks are totally cool. bruises, on the other hand, they kind of hurt.

Charles said...

If that picture was taken recently, you actually look younger than when I last saw you...like 22. And Bro. Hatch says hi.
