The latest Obama family photo reveals just how quickly Sasha, Malia and their dad, the President, have matured since Obama’s inauguration nearly 4 years ago. First Lady Michelle, however, looks as coiffed and fresh-faced as ever.
The official image was captured on Sunday by official White House photographer Pete Souza, and shows the first family in the festively adorned Oval Office. Their previous photo which showed the Obama’s in the Green Room of the White House was taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, and released in September 2009.
The FLOTUS gave PEOPLE a glimpse into family life at the White House. Apparently, Sasha, 13 and Malia, 10, have not signed onto the Facebook craze. According to Michelle, the girls said “Why would we want to have a whole bunch of people who we don’t know knowing our business? That doesn’t make much sense.” The president isn’t convinced, adding, “We’ll see how they feel in four years.”
They also revealed a little something about their differing TV tastes, “For the girls and me, ‘Modern Family,’ that’s our favorite show,” Michelle admits. The President listed Boardwalk Empire and Homeland as his faves, outside of sports, of course. “Yes,” the First Lady chuckled, “we don’t watch TV with him.”
Word from the White House is that the Michelle and the girls will depart for Hawaii today, for their annual holiday trip. The president will make his way to the island of his upbringing after Congress convenes.
