Here is a cool thing to put in your scrapbook(s)! The White House will send out personal greetings signed by President Bush and Laura for the following events. Even if you are not a Bush fan, it is still a neat keepsake to receive. I did this a while back when Alex was born and the card came within a month or so.
BABY'S BIRTH GREETING
A baby birth card will be sent within a year of the birth. Please make your request after the baby is born.
A birthday card will be sent to individuals celebrating their 80th (or greater) birthday. Please make your request at least 6 weeks in advance of the birthday.
A wedding card will be sent to couples after the event. Please make your request after the wedding.
