'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."

Two young turkeys are breathing a sigh of relief right about now, thanks to President Barack Obama, who spared their lives in a gesture of executive poultry power.
As First Daughters Malia and Sasha looked on this afternoon, the President spared the 4-month-old male birds from becoming Thanksgiving dinner in a White House ceremony known as the turkey pardon.
The lucky birds, named Cobbler and Gobbler, were both born on July 13 and raised on a Rockingham Country, Va., farm. In a nod to democracy or the public appetite for reality-TV competitions, the social-savvy White House took to Facebook and asked the public to vote on which bird would be named the official 2012 National Thanksgiving Turkey.

It's the campaign homestretch, but the Obama girls didn't let that stop them from throwing their favorite dog a birthday party.
Five of Sasha and Malia's dog-owning friends brought their pups to the White House on Monday's no-school holiday for a pre-birthday playdate with Bo, who turned 4 on Tuesday.
"Mrs. Obama and the girls sang him 'Happy Birthday,'" a White House source tells PEOPLE. "There were doggy treats and toys and running around on the South Lawn."

President Barack Obama is gearing up for the election a mere 34 days away, but he has a sweet milestone to celebrate Wednesday: His wedding anniversary with wife Michelle.
"Twenty years ago today, I married the love of my life and my best friend. Happy anniversary, Michelle," Obama Tweeted.
The couple met at Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin in 1989, and shared their first kiss outside a Hyde Park shopping center. There is even a plaque outside, which bears a quote the then Senator shared with Oprah Winfrey in 2007:
"On our first date, I treated her to the finest ice cream Baskin-Robbins had to offer, our dinner table doubling as the curb. I kissed her, and it tasted like chocolate."
