We lined up outside the mansion and got in in about 45 minutes.
We were so excited to see him again (we did this last year) and get a picture with he and his wife. We told him how we voted for him in this past election and were so relieved that he got back in office. He thanked us, and I told him that he needs to run for President. Tom also mentioned that we'd like to finally see gay marriage in Maryland. He said he's working on it. We're hopeful. After the photo, we partook in the warm apple cider and cookies, listened to a 4 piece string ensemble playing Christmas music,
enjoyed seeing a train display all gingerbread themed, and checked out the gingerbread houses. We also got our picture taken next to one of the beautiful trees in the mansion. The workers handed us each an ornament in the shape of a snowman that their kids built on the front lawn of the mansion last year. Very nice touch - and in the back it said it was a gift from Governor O'Malley and family.
