Bush celebrates Christmas at Camp David with wife, daughters and other family members

U.S. President George W. Bush brought his extended family together for a Christmas celebration at the chief executive's retreat at Camp David, Maryland, with gift exchanges and a traditional midday feast on the holiday agenda.
Gathered at the wooded compound in the Catoctin Mountains, located about 60 miles (100 kilometers) northwest of Washington, were the first couple's twin daughters, Barbara and Jenna; Mrs. Bush's mother, Jenna Welch; the president's sister, Doro Bush Koch, and her family; and the president's brother, Marvin, and his family.
The Christmas Day lunch menu called for roast turkey, cornbread dressing, green beans, sweet potato casserole, fruit salad, pumpkin and pecan pies and red velvet cake.
Bush planned to leave Camp David on Wednesday for his Texas ranch and was expected to return to Washington on New Year's Day.
On Jan. 8, the president is scheduled to begin a trip to the Middle East with stops in Israel, the West Bank, Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
