Virginia's first family heads home for the holidays

By Anita Kumar

Gov. Bob McDonnell and first lady Maureen McDonnell will head back to the family's homestead outside Richmond for much of the long Christmas holiday weekend.

Yes, the family still owns the house. Remember the governor voted in that Glen Allen neighborhood on Election Day despite moving to the historic Executive Mansion in January?

All five of the McDonnells's children will be in town -- Jeanine, Cailin, Rachel, Bobby and Sean -- and one of the first lady's sisters.

The McDonnell clan will help serve Christmas Eve lunch Friday at the Healing Place, a Richmond nonprofit that provides shelter for the homeless and long-term residential recovery programs for the chemically dependent. It's the second Christmas in a row the McDonnells have served food at the Healing Place.

They'll be on their own for Christmas Day. The mansion staff, including the chef, are taking a day off.
