Watch Michelle Obama, Sunny and Bo, and the Robinson cousins welcome their last White House Christmas tree

This year, first lady Michelle Obama received the first Christmas tree with her two young nephews, Austin and Aaron Robinson (and two contest winners), rather than teenage daughters Sasha and Malia. The video of Michelle’s remarks is poignant.

Gifs: The White House

when my mom was in elementary school they had to write a story through the perspective of a Christmas tree.
everyone wrote about how nice and happy it was to get decorated.
she wrote a horror story about getting chopped down and propped up in a stranger’s house to die. then had to read it in front of the class.
honestly I don’t know why she didn’t go into writing after that.
