President Barack Obama watches as his daughter Sasha,10, pets the 2011 Thanksgiving Turkey, Liberty, alongside her sister Malia,13, during a ceremony at the White House on November 23, 2011.

Since 1989, every U.S. President has pardoned a turkey for Thanksgiving. “The turkey’s name is Liberty — there he is — and along with his understudy named Peace, he has the distinction of being the luckiest bird on the face of the Earth. Right now, he’s also probably one of the most confused,” the president explained.

  1. [...] President Barack Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia took part in the White House Thanksgiving tradition of pardoning a “lucky turkey.” Beginning in 1989, the President of the United States has pardoned a turkey for Thanksgiving each year. This year, the lucky bird’s name was “Liberty.” {Black Celeb Kids} [...]

  2. Sasha is finally past Malia’s shoulders. I remember when she came to her waist. Sasha is really slimming up and getting her little curves. Lord help Barack. He needs to get reelected just to keep the Secret Service for the girls.

  3. Both girls r cuties I love my first family Happy Thanksgiving to everyone I came up here personally to say that! Please enjoy and be safe!

  4. Sasha is getting tall & I think looks the most like her dad.

    Malia looks like mom & I see has her style in dress.

    Both young ladies expressions are like, ‘really, aren’t we going to eat him next year?’

    Love my first family!

  5. Natasha (Sasha) has really slimmed out and is getting very tall. I love her jacket.
