First lady Michelle Obama, along with daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, received a special delivery on Friday morning: an 18.5 ft. Christmas tree.

With dogs Sunny and Bo on hand, the dressed-up family – sans the President – had smiles on their faces as a horse-drawn carriage pulled up to the North Portico of the executive mansion with its precious cargo.

President Obama Pardons Thanksgiving Turkeys – Which Was Crowned Big Bird?

Caramel and Popcorn are delicious together, but neither snack-named turkey will be eaten this Thanksgiving, as both were formally pardoned by President Obama on Wednesday.

Popcorn was the winner of the public vote and the star of the official bird-pardoning ceremony, though the runner-up, Caramel, will be spared as well.

"And now, before these turkeys get away, with the power vested in me, I want to grant Popcorn a full reprieve ... from cranberry sauce and stuffing. We wish you well," Obama said. (Watch the clip below to see how it all went down.)

It was a red-hot Fourth of July around the country, but celebs on both coasts played it cool as they hung with friends, attempted a human pyramid, and hit the beach – or Slip-N-Slide! – in search of some Independence Day fun.

Kendall Jenner, 17, gave a tiny nod to her country in this itty bitty American flag-inspired bikini when she hit the beach with sister Kylie, 15, and Jaden Smith, 14, – a.k.a Kylie's rumored beau.

She will be meeting with middle school students in Senegal, taking questions from teenagers in Johannesburg, and comparing notes with other First Ladies – including Laura Bush – at a summit in Tanzania, where she'll also take in a cultural performance by the Baba wa Watoto youth troupe.

Washington, D.C., was spared the big winter storm it had been expecting Wednesday, but President Obama and his daughters were still seen frolicking in the snow – at least in this adorable photo he posted online.

"What a real snow day looks like," the Obama team wrote in posting the image to Facebook and Twitter.

That seemed to be a wry joke, perhaps making fun of the hype (and government closings) over the major winter storm that never materialized in D.C.

It's a big day for the Obamas.

While watching President Barack Obama be sworn in publicly for his second term in office, Michelle Obama and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, looked on proudly from the platform in front of the Capitol.

But not all eyes were on the Commander in Chief, who officially started his term on Sunday. Many Inauguration watchers have been eager to see what the women in his life would be wearing.

The First Lady, who is sporting a new do, dressed in a navy Thom Browne coat and dress with the fabric inspired by the textures of a man's silk tie.

She accessorized with Reed Krakoff boots and a jeweled belt and gloves from J. Crew and earrings designed by Cathy Waterman. At the end of the Inaugural festivities, Michelle's entire outfit will go to the National Archives.

Monday's inauguration festivities are expected to draw in about 800,000 people as the country's top officials are publicly sworn into office.

But on Sunday President Barack Obama was in no shortage of good company in a room with two of his biggest supporters: daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, who joined their father in a private White House Blue Room ceremony as he placed his hand on his wife's family Bible and officially began his second term as President of the United States.

So how did his leading ladies, including First Lady Michelle Obama, mark the milestone?

"I'm so happy. Yay!" Malia was heard saying.

'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!
