PO­TUS Fam­ily Scrap­book: Grow­ing Up, White House Style!

What life has Re­ally been like for Pres­i­dent Obama’s daugh­ters, Malia and Sasha!

J-14 - - Front Page -

For nearly eight years, 18-year-old Malia and 15-year-old Sasha have called 1600 Penn­syl­va­nia Ave., in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., home. Com­plete with a movie the­ater, a pool and two bowl­ing al­leys, there’s no doubt that they’ve have had a blast there! “They’ve han­dled it [my pres­i­dency] so well,” Pres­i­dent Obama says. With their dad’s term end­ing Jan. 20, look back on their time in D.C.!

The girls still have re­spon­si­bil­i­ties!

In the White House, the sis­ters have chores to do, such as mak­ing their beds and clean­ing their rooms, even af­ter at­tend­ing events with their dad (like this Thanks­giv­ing ap­pear­ance).

A Christ­mas to re­mem­ber for­ever!

The fam­ily was joined by Rita Ora and other celebri­ties dur­ing the TNT Christ­mas in Wash­ing­ton party on Dec. 14. That year, the girls only asked for money and no presents!

Wel­come to the White House!

Sasha (left) was just 7 years old and Malia was 10 when they moved from Chicago (with their par­ents and grandma!) to

D.C. in Jan. 2009.

Fun fam­ily times!

Last year, the girls trav­eled to Lon­don with their mom. “I love to catch up on the gos­sip in my girls’ life,” Michelle says. “Whose friends are mad at who, and what boys are in the scene!”

They’re nor­mal teens, too!

On Thanks­giv­ing 2015, Sasha and Malia were all smiles with their dad. And even though they’re both in the pub­lic eye, Sasha and Malia at­tended the Sid­well Friends School in D.C.!

The girls get a new

four-legged BFF!

On April 14, 2009, the sis­ters de­buted their new puppy, whom they named Bo! In Au­gust 2013, the girls got another dog

named Sunny.

Sasha’s fa­vorites!

Sasha loves to play bas­ket­ball with her dad at home. She also takes hip-hop dance lessons!

Next up: Malia is headed to col­lege!

Malia is get­ting ready to at­tend Har­vard Univer­sity in the spring of 2017 af­ter tak­ing a gap year. “I’m not ready for her to leave,” Pres­i­dent Obama says. “But she’s ready!”

Sasha gets to­tally star struck!

Malia threw two thumbs up to Sasha as she fan-girled in front one of her fa­vorite ac­tors, Ryan Reynolds, at a party on March 14, 2016.

Proudly stand­ing by their fa­ther!

On Jan. 21, 2013, Malia (then 15) and Sasha (then 12) watched their dad be in­au­gu­rated for his sec­ond term. “They’re smart and funny, but most im­por­tantly, they’re kind,” Pres. Obama has said about them.

Girls’ night at the Kids’ Choice Awards!

At the slime-themed awards show, the sis­ters watched as their mom Michelle gave an award to Tay­lor Swift. Then, they danced to 1D’s per­for­mance!
