Obama and His daughters

Obama reported for dad-in-chief duty over the holidays, spending time with his two daughters, Sasha, 10, l., and Malia, 7. Above, the president-elect took his girls out to shaved ice at Kokonuts Shave Ice and Snacks while the family vacations in Hawaii.

The Obamas have worked hard to keep life as normal as possible for their daughters, but it's hard keeping the adorable future first kids out of the spotlight...

... photogs snapped the girls over the weekend playing with their friends in front of an ocean-side villa in Kailua, Hawaii that the family rented for the holidays.

Barack takes the girls out for a father-daughter lunch at a local shopping mall in Honolulu, the day after Christmas.

Malia, l., and Sasha, r., join their father and mother Michelle as they board a charter flight to Hawaii from Chicago on Dec. 20.

The future first daughters have plenty to be thankful for! Here they are helping less fortunate children by passing out food with their parents at St. Colmbanus Parrish and School in Chicago on Thanksgiving.

The whole family stands together on election night--looking fabulous in their coordinating outfits.

Things may get easier for the girls once they have the protection afforded by the White House. They were no stranger to the spotlight before their father's election. Here they are with their father on the campaign trail in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Sunday, May 4, 2008.

Obama gives Sasha a lift while waving to supporters after a rally in Ames, Iowa, on Feb 11, 2007, the day after he formally announced he is seeking the Democratic nomination to become president of the United States.

Obama spends his time off of the campaign trail this past summer with Malia and Sasha. He talks to them as they tour the USS Arizona Memorial with family and friends in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on Aug. 14, 2008.

During his time off in August, Obama takes a stroll on the beach with his Malia, l., and Sasha in Kailua, Hi.

Obama hugs Malia as they watch a Fourth of July parade in Butte, Mont., Friday on July 4, 2008.

... and rides the bumper cars with Sasha at the state fair.

Obama laughs with Sasha before speaking at a campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa on July 4, 2007.

Obama, along with his wife Michelle and daughter Sasha, sing happy birthday to his daughter Malia, r., during an Independence Day house party in Pella, Iowa on July 4, 2007.
