Sonora California second grader Johnny Crawford (lower left) had the honor of flipping the light switch with House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to light the Capitol Christmas Tree during a ceremony on the West Lawn of the US Capitol on Tuesday, December 6, 2011. Johnny was joined by parents, Lisa and Richard, and his little sister Lizzie and older brother Ricky. The 63 foot Sierra white fir from California's Stanislaus National Forest was decorated with more than 10,000 LED lights and some 2,000 handmade ornaments from the State of California.
