The Obama family shared a gorgeous family photo on social media to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving today.

Michelle Obama posted the family photo on her Instagram with the caption “From our family to yours, #HappyThanksgiving!” It shows Michelle in a black and white sundress with her daughter Sasha next to her, along with Barack and Malia.


The Today Show hypothesizes that the sunny scene is probably from Sasha’s senior prom earlier this year.

Barack Obama also posted a Thanksgiving greeting on Instagram, along with a photo of him and his family in what looks like a volunteering event. The photo shows Barack shaking hands with a child behind a table. In the post, he encourages folks to “give back to those around us” and “give thanks for our blessings.”

This is the third Thanksgiving that the Obama family is out of the White House. It also means it is the third year that the public was not treated to Barack and his daughters’ infamous turkey pardoning.


“Time flies, even though turkeys don’t,” was just one of the many cheesy “dad” jokes Barack Obama made while his daughters cringed. The embarrassment of his teenage girls basically became another Thanksgiving tradition! Scroll down to celebrate this year's holiday with a look back and some of his best pardons:
