Laura and George Bush discovered there wasn't much to load onto the moving truck as they prepared to turn over the keys to Michelle and Barack Obama on Tuesday.
"Very, very few things," Mrs. Bush told PEOPLE in the weeks leading up to the couple's move back to Texas and a newly purchased home in Dallas. "I mean, of course I have a million books, and lots of clothes – now."
Showing PEOPLE around the White House's private quarters on the second floor, Mrs. Bush said she didn't arrive in Washington with a whole lot of clothes, back in 2001, when President Bush was first sworn in.
"But I'm leaving with a lot of clothes, which is great – I'll never have to buy clothes again." Pausing, she added with a chuckle, "As I don't gain a lot of weight."

Former President George Bush celebrated his 75th birthday Wednesday by making his third parachute jump, this time landing near his Presidential library in southeast Texas. Bush made the jump from an airplane flying at 12,500 feet over the Bush library at Texas A&M University in College Station. He landed upright (with the aid of some ground personnel) and grinned broadly at the crowd. "Old guys can still do stuff," he said, "and you might as well go for it."
