First lady Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaMichelle Obama criticizes lack of diversity in politics: one side is 'all white, all men' Obama interrupts Michelle's appearance with 25th anniversary tribute Michelle Obama: Young people feel what's happening now 'not what they were taught' MORE, daughters Malia and Sasha and family dogs Bo and Sunny welcomed the White House Christmas on Friday.

The 20-foot white fir, from a Pennsylvania tree farm, arrived in a horse-drawn wagon and was hauled up the driveway to the North Portico. 

The first lady, her daughters and two dogs inspected the tree and smelled it as they circled the wagon: "We're taking the tree," Obama said.

The White House Christmas tree will be trimmed in the Blue Room, where it will stand throughout the holiday season.
