Here witness our favorite residents of the White House, Barney and Miss Beazley, playing in the snow last week. The amazing thing is there is an almost prophetic drawing of them playing in the snow — JUST LIKE THIS — at the end of this year’s Christmas decorations booklet.

But what I am really here to tell you is the following exciting news. Tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 12th, Barney and Miss Beazley will both be named honorary park rangers. I think it is going to be in Barney’s annual Christmas vid — I can’t wait. I really, really hope the White House does not miss this opportunity to put these two precious creatures in ranger hats.
