'Tis the season!

Michelle Obama and daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11 – assisted by their not-so-little helper Bo Obama – welcomed a Christmas tree to the White House on Friday.

The 19-ft. Fraser fir from Peak Farms in Jefferson, N.C., arrived on a red and green wagon drawn by two Clydesdale horses while the Marine Band played the classic carol "Oh Christmas Tree."

How festive!



According to tradition, the tree will be displayed in the White House's Blue Room and the First Lady will select and supervise the decorating.

After sampling the scent of the tree's needles, Ms. Obama reportedly gave a thumbs-up and told onlookers, "It's a go."
