See Michelle Obama Pick Their Last White House Christmas Tree

The First Family is getting in the holiday spirit.

Published November 26, 2016

Now that another Thanksgiving has come and gone, the Obama family is wasting no time gearing up for the next holiday celebration. 

Per tradition, Michelle Obama has welcomed what will be the First Family's final Christmas tree. The First Lady was joined by her adorable nephews, Austin and Aaron Robinson, who earlier this week, helped President Obama pardon a turkey prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. 

For the Obama family's final Christmas at the White House, Michelle decided to do it up nice and proper, picking out a glorious 19-foot balsam fir tree courtesy of Dave and Mary Vander Velden, of Oconto, WI.

Sasha and Malia Obama have been granted some leeway this holiday season, with both sisters missing the annual turkey pardon for the first time in eight years. Additionally, both were MIA at the time of the Christmas tree's arrival, further proving how they really have grown up before our eyes.

The Obama family has been rumored to be relocating to California following President Obama finishing up his final term, but in the meantime, it's heartwarming to see our favorite First Family getting in the holiday spirit.

Take a look at the Obama family's epic Christmas tree below.
