The Obamas Gave Out Homemade Cookies to Trick-or-Treaters—Get the Recipe

31 October 2016 4:58 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

They might be known for projects like the Let’s Move! campaign and the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge—but on Halloween, First Lady Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama handed out a deliciously decadent gift to trick-or-treaters: Halloween sugar cookies.

On Monday, the White House grounds were transformed into A Storybook Journey, with different theme stations inspired by tales like Mother Goose, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and Peter Rabbit. As acrobats and Joy of Motion dancers dressed in fiery orange costumes performed on pedestals, the foodie First couple welcomed about 4,000 people—including local Washington, D.C. »

Halloween at the White House: Decorations, Ghostly Visitors, and (Sorry, Michelle) Candy!

31 October 2016 4:07 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

President and Mrs. Obama welcomed trick-or-treaters to the White House for the last time on Monday, and you better believe they’re not leave-a-bowl-of-candy-on-the-porch types.

Thousands of visitors stopped by for a treat, and the historic structure received a fantastical new look for the occasion. Characters from famous children’s storybooks including Mother Goose, Peter Pan and The Wizard of Oz make appearances in the larger than life decor, but Alice in Wonderland steals the show. A gold pocket watch swings from the South Portico framed by giant mechanical white rabbits, and, below, a chess board floor. Live performers even dot the lawn, »

What Does Jennifer Garner Think of Her Cheeky Reading of Go the F--- to Sleep? 'I Just Hope My Parents Don't See It!'

7 March 2016 11:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Forget Mother Goose. Bedtime stories just got a whole lot more fun with Jennifer Garner at the helm, after the actress delivered a wicked reading of the spoof children's book Go the F--- to Sleep. But while fans (not to mention weary parents everywhere) got a collective kick out of it, there are two people whom Garner hopes won't get an earful of her inspired reading: her very own folks. "I just hope my parents don't see it!" she told reporters recently while promoting her upcoming drama Miracles from Heaven in Los Angeles. As for that anguished parental plea that the book parodies? »

Samantha Bee was once an awesome Mother Goose on 'Sesame Street'

9 February 2016 10:13 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is off to a running start thanks to its whip-smart commentary on Jeb Bush and his wilting exclamation point, but let's not forget that Samantha Bee once gave us a formal lesson in rhetoric on Sesame Street -- in a stunning Mother Goose costume. In 2013, Bee appeared on Sesame Street as a rhyme-penning Mother Goose who'd come down with writer's block. Luckily some pals arrive to help her out in this preview clip. So keep in mind as Full Frontal rolls on that Samantha Bee is not just an authority on Daily Show-style punditry. She also knows a thing or two about Dr. Seuss literary tricks.  As a side note, I love thinking of Mother Goose as an agitated Lillian Hellman type attempting to get her inspiration down on paper.  »
