Michelle Obama Tweets About White House Halloween Party for Military Families

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a closed-to-press Halloween Party inside the White House on Saturday night for kids from military families. Mrs. Obama sent out a tweet on the Joining Forces account, and posted a photo of herself with a group of her young guests. It was the First Lady's second "official" tweet.

"Happy halloween! Spending it w/ military kids & families - so proud of them & honored to say thanks. -mo," Mrs. Obama wrote (sic).

The special party, the third time the President and Mrs. Obama have welcomed military families for Halloween, came after they'd doled out treat bags to thousands of kids as snow fell over the North Portico. The White House treat bags this year contained extra sugary candy at President Obama's request. Festive decorations included First Dog Bo dressed as Superman as well as cobwebs, pumpkins, and bats.

The White House this year released two recipes for Halloween, and Mrs. Obama also offered some treat advice for parents: Confiscate the candy.
