U.S. President Obama and first lady Michelle greet military personnel during a Christmas day visit to Marine Corps Base Hawaii in KaneoheA Chicago-area family got a belated Christmas surprise this week – a book of family photos from the White House meant for the Obama girls’ godmother, according to media reports and the White House. Alane Church, who lives north of Chicago, told NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday that her family got a box of Christmas presents a week late from an uncle in New York. Church said the gifts appeared to have been re-boxed by the U.S. Postal Service. The photo book was addressed to “Mama Kaye + Papa Wellington from Barack, Michelle + the girls.” “Mama Kaye” is the Obama girls’ godmother, Eleanor Kaye Wilson, who lives in the south Chicago suburbs.
