At Last, a Link Between Michelle Obama and the Mud House

This picture of Michelle Obama reading 'Twas the Night Before Christmas at Children's National Medical Center in Washington D.C. is very sweet and heartwarming, especially because First Dog Bo was also present, but Casey Miller, one of the owners of the wonderful Cherokee Street cafe The Mud House was especially excited: That particular edition was one she helped illustrate while she was working for Mary Engelbreit.

"Of all the versions, they chose ours," Miller exclaims. "After I saw the picture, I got my copy of the book out of my own storage to look at it again. It was a nice reminder. I didn't get recognition -- we usually do, but this time my little name wasn't on it. But it sure is cool."
