The White House Flickr has blessed us with a behind the scenes look at the First Family during the month of December.
These candid shots won’t be found on the front page of the New York Times, instead they’re for the fans of the White House.
Some of the most intimate moments captured on camera are featured in this collection of photos, from Michelle Obama having tug of war with late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon, to President Barack Obama flipping over the Army Navy football game.
All photos are taken by the White House staff photographers who circle the President and First Lady on every occasion.
Take a look at some behind the scenes snapshots on the next few pages!
