Treats from the White House

November 01, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

More than 2,000 kids got candy from President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House.

The Obamas smiled, chatted and passed out goody bags to parents and their children who came in costume. Michelle Obama wore furry cat ears.

The candy bags included White House M&Ms imprinted with the president's signature, dried fruit and a butter cookie made by White House pastry chef Bill Yosses.

Tiera Thomas, 11, said that she was excited to get candy, but that the best part was meeting the president, who touched her hand and said, "Happy Halloween."
