All I want for Christmas…

Obama’s no grinch, that’s for sure!  He’s playing Santa to more than just those bail-out recipients.  Six-year old Jasmina Anema, who has leukemia, was scheduled to meet the Prez over Thanksgiving, but fell ill and had to be admitted to Children’s National Medical Center.  She wouldn’t be deterred, though, and made it back to the White House to lay claim to her Make-A-Wish Foundation wish–to meet our POTUS.

Her visit couldn’t have gone better, either.  Obama chatted her up about books and reading while holding Jasmina’s IV bag, and didn’t let her leave without a box of presidentially sealed M&Ms, a yoyo (old school!), and a big hug with the promise, “You can write me any time.  I’ll get it.”

What did Jasmina tell Obama she wants for Christmas?  A violin.

I really wanted to play with Bo, but I guess meeting you is okay, too. (White House Photo, Pete Souza)
