On Wednesday afternoon, President Obama and the First Lady met with a group of moms in the Oval Office to talk about how health reform has benefitted their families. They talked about the critical role that moms are playing in helping their families access quality, affordable health care by encouraging their adult children, family members and their peers to sign up for coverage.

First Lady Michelle Obama said that she’s involved with this issue “because I’m a mom.”

"It’s our job as mothers to make sure that our young people are informed about their “invincibility,” to make sure that other moms and families out there really understand what this law provides and that they can take advantage of it. This is the beauty of it. People have choices. They can go on to the website; they can talk to a navigator; they can learn for themselves what the law means and what it doesn’t mean. And that's really, really what we want people to do, is educate yourselves. Get that education. Make the choice that's best for your family, because the options are there."

Earlier this week, the first White House Holiday Social took place. Pinners, Instagramers and White House Twitter followers from near and far gathered at the White House to take in the 2013 holiday decorations and learn about what goes in to transforming the People's House for this special time of year. Social guests joined White House Chief Floral Designer Laura Dowling for a craft project, learned about the making of the White House Gingerbread house with Executive Pastry Chef William Yosses and talked to Joining Forces Executive Director Rich Morales and Deputy Director Rory Brosius. Throughout the day, they shared photos and updates with their social media followers using the hashtag #WHHoliday. Check out some of the coverage here!
