Michelle Obama is giving military families a first look at the White House Christmas decorations. Family dog Bo, the star of past Obama White House holiday displays, had to share the spotlight with his little sister, Sunny. Two life-sized replicas of the Portuguese water dogs made of satin ribbons are one of the first things an expected 70,000 White House visitors will see this month. Dark chocolate miniatures of the first pets are also part of the annual gingerbread White House display. Another highlight is the towering Blue Room tree, dedicated to military families and trimmed with photos of their joyous homecomings. Mrs. Obama says she wants Americans to never forget the debt they owe service members and their families for the sacrifices they make in serving the country. -- Associated Press
