First Lady Michelle Obama heads to Africa with her family on Wednesday – and she's taking your questions along in her carry-on bag.
Accompanying President Obama on his official tour through Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania, the First Lady, with Sasha and Malia in tow, will have a busy and colorful separate itinerary. 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."

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."
