The Obama Family’s Big 2016: The 12 Best Moments from the President’s Last Year in Office

​2016 is almost over, and so is President Obama’s last year in office.

While the Obama family certainly has charmed us throughout the last eight years, 2016 was extra special — we saw Michelle shine, Sasha and Malia grow up, and Barack do his best to embarrass his daughters.

Here are the 12 best moments (in no particular order, because how could we ever rate them) from the Obamas’ last year in the White House.


Michelle Delivers Powerful DNC Speech

The first lady captivated the country with the emotional speech she delivered during the opening night of the Democratic National Convention in July, reflecting on the last eight years, and how her daughters have been affected by their life in the White House.


Barack and Michelle Dance to Usher

The couple that gets down to Usher together, stays together — and Barack and Michelle did just that while jamming out to Usher’s performance during BET’s Love & Happiness: an Obama Celebration in November.


Michelle Slays Her State Dinner Fashion

The first lady decided to head out with a bang, as she stunned in a gorgeous rose gold Atelier Versace dress during the Obamas’ Italy state dinner — their last in the office — in October.


Michelle’s Hilarious Barack Impression

After 24 years of marriage, Michelle has honed her impression of Barack pretty well — and graciously shared her skills during an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in September.


Michelle Stuns on the Cover of Vogue

 

Michelle shut down the fashion game as Vogue’s December cover star — her third time on the front page of the magazine. Dressed in a white Carolina Herrera gown and Monique Péan earrings, Michelle proved exactly why she’s “the first lady the world fell in love with.”


Barack Serenades Malia on Her 18th Birthday

Malia Obama just so happens to share a birthday with the country her dad governs, so it’s only fitting that Barack would take a little time during the White House’s Fourth of July celebration to sing his daughter “Happy Birthday” — and embarrass her in front of all of the evening’s guests.


Barack Reveals Sasha Has a Twitter Account

Just a day after his sweet serenade to Malia, the commander in chief embarrassed his other daughter, Sasha, by revealing that she has a secret Twitter account. “Everybody can tweet, but nobody actually knows what it takes to do the job until you’ve sat behind the desk,” Barack said during a campaign speech for Hillary Clinton, taking a little dig at Donald Trump. “I mean, Sasha tweets, but she doesn’t think that she thereby should be sitting behind the desk!”


Michelle Does the Mannequin Challenge

An end of the year list just doesn’t seem complete without a Mannequin Challenge, and Michelle Obama didn’t disappoint. The first lady put her spin on the social media craze in an amazing video filmed during the Cleveland Cavaliers’ visit to the White House.


Malia Announces She’s Going to Harvard
 

Malia’s all grown up! Barack and Michelle announced in May that their 18-year-old daughter will be taking a gap year before starting college in the fall of 2017 — at Harvard University!


Barack Serves Up His Thanksgiving Dad Jokes For the Last Time

 

While Sasha and Malia peaced out for the White House tradition — “they couldn’t take my jokes anymore,” Barack joked — the president made sure his final  turkey pardon was as pun-filled as ever. “No way I’m cutting this habit cold turkey,” he said, promising to embarrass his daughters with live turkeys and plenty of jokes for years to come. 

Malia and Sasha Attend Their First State Dinner

After nearly eight years in the white house, Malia and Sasha finally attended their first state dinner in March, shocking the country — and their own father — with their elegant debut. “When I was first elected to this office, Malia was just 10 and Sasha was 7. And they grow up too fast. Now Malia is going off to college,” Barck said at the dinner, “and I’m starting to choke up.”

Sasha Freaks Out Over Ryan Reynolds

In perhaps the greatest moment of 2016, Sasha Obama proved she’s just like us — by taking a moment at her first state dinner to fangirl over Ryan Reynolds. We feel you, girl. We feel you.
