Fashion plate Michelle Obama proved that when you find a great dress you don’t let it go. The First Lady celebrated President Barack Obama’s re-election victory in a Michael Kors dress she has worn twice before!
The President is celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend, but there are two birds that won't end up on his plate.
President Obama spared the lives of two turkeys, named Courage and Carolina, at the request of his daughters Malia and Sasha.
The President discussed the tradition of the National Turkey Federation's best turkey being brought to the White House for pardoning.
"Today I am pleased to announce, that thanks to the interventions of Malia and Sasha... Courage will also be spared this terrible and delicious fate. Today he'll head to Disneyland where he'll be Grand Marshall of tomorrow's parade."
Obama said that he and his family will also donate two turkeys to "Martha's Table, an organization that does extraordinary work to help folks here in D.C. who need it the most."
During a turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House, Obama also expressed his thanks for the blessings he's received -- and reminded the American people to think of those less fortunate during the Holidays.
"When my family and I sit around the table tomorrow, just like millions of other families across America, we'll take time to give our thanks for many blessings. But we'll also remember this is a time when so many members of our American family are hurting. There's no question this has been a tough year for America. We're at war. Our economy is emerging from an extraordinary recession into recovery. But there's a long way to go and a lot of work to do."
The President reminds the public that economic hardships means that less fortunate people need more help now than ever.
"This is an era of new perils and new hardships. But we are, as ever, a people of endless compassion, boundless ingenuity, limitless strength. We're the heirs to a hard-earned history and stewards of a land of God-given beauty. We are Americans. And for all this, we give our humble thanks -- to our predecessors, to one another, and to God.
So on this quintessentially American holiday, as we give thanks for what we've got, let's also give back to those who are less fortunate. As we give thanks for our loved ones, let us remember those who can't be with us. And as we give thanks for our security, let's in turn thank those who've sacrificed to make it possible, wherever they may be."
Sasha and Malia Obama got to stay up late on a school night.
Michelle Obama took the first daughters, 8 and 11 respectively, to a Miley Cyrus concert Tuesday night in Washington, D.C., according to ABC News.
It's not the first time the tweens have watched the "Party in the USA" perform. Cyrus, 16, also took the stage at the Kids Ball on Inauguration Day.
Earlier this summer, the Obama girls went to a Beyoncé concert with their mom. They also met their favorite group, the Jonas Brothers, during a scavenger hunt the night they moved into the White House.
Did second First Daughter Sasha Obama come close to death as a baby?
That's frighteningly true! President Obama revealed the secret about his youngest daughter during the first ever Internet Town Hall meeting this week.
Obama said, "She got meningitis when she was 3 months old... very dangerous. The doctors did a terrific job."
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), meningitis causes approximately 170,000 deaths worldwide in children under the age of 5.
The 7-year-old is healthy now -- and cute as a button!
Is the White House really divided just like Congress?
That's true! Social Secretary Desiree Rogers says, "The east side is typically the First Lady's side. The West side is typically the President's side of the house."
Desiree reveals the more relaxed side of the White House for WashingtonPost.com, and that the new Prez ditches his suit jacket when he's in the Oval Office. Malia and Sasha enjoy time with the Nintendo Wii and Michelle Obama is comfy being called "Mom in Chief!"
