The White House Flickr has been blessing us the entire year of 2011 with behind the scenes pictures of the First Family during the course of the last 12 months.
These candid shots won’t be found on the front page of the New York Times, instead they're for fans of the White House.
So what have learned in 2011 from the Obama family this year? For one they love to laugh, First Lady Michelle Obama loves to dance and President Obama loves babies.
We saw the President take a trip to Ireland and down a pint of Guinness, while Michelle O. went to South Africa and had some one-on-one time with Nelson Mandela.
It was an amazing 2011 for the Obama family and we have the pictures to prove it. Take a look at the 2011 behind the scenes snapshots of the first family.
