Obama gifts go to wrong address

Alane Church told WLS News that she received a box of Christmas gifts late because of damage during the shipping process. When the package arrived, it included an already opened second box inside — including personal gifts from the first family.

In a subsequent interview with NBC’s “Today” show, Church said the box included a "beautiful, personal" picture book featuring pictures of Sasha and Malia Obama.

She told the network the album featured "very special, private moments of their year of 2013 together."
