And so, it begins.

This morning, Barack Obama was sworn in to his second term as President of the United States of America as he took the Presidential Oath. He was joined by wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha in the Blue Room at the White House for the private ceremony.  Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts presided over the quick swearing in.

After the ceremony, President Obama was overheard thanking his family and turned to reporters to say, “I did it!”

Vice President Joe Biden took his oath much earlier Sunday morning at the Naval Observatory.

The private ceremony is actually written into the Constitution and must take place on January 20th.  The public ceremony – the big “shindig” we’re all anticipating – will be held Monday and, according to People, should attract more than 800,000 people.

Both President Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr’s bibles will be used during Monday’s public Inauguration.  Singer Beyonce will be singing the National Anthem.

The weekend’s festivities have been bursting at the seams. It appears everyone is having a “ball,” including the Hip-Hop Inaugural Ball which will take place Sunday night.  On Saturday night, First Lady Obama and the girls hung out at the Kids Inaugural Concert, where there were performances by Katy Perry, and Usher. Finally, the now infamous “Grits and Biscuits” party took place on Friday evening to blowout and, as usual, sellout numbers.

We look forward to hearing more about Monday’s festivities…and seeing all the photos!

Will you be attending any Inauguration 2013 functions?
