Is This Christmas Photo Of The Obamas The Sweetest Thing Ever?

The US President got into the festive spirit with a group of children at an annual star-studded event this weekend

Young child + funny face = a recipe for serious cuteness. Something that wasn’t lost on one little boy, who had the Obama family cracking up at a charity event on Sunday.

Hosted by X-Men actor Hugh Jackman, the 32nd annual TNT Christmas in Washington concert saw the President, wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia have their photo taken with a group of patients from the Children's National Medical Center.

The adorable kids, who were dressed as elves, shook hands with the President and helped him with some gifts under a Christmas tree, before posing for photographs with the First family.

And when Michelle asked them to do their best funny faces for the camera, the children really stepped up – we’re talking tongues out and some top notch mouth stretching.

‘That’s a scary face!’ the President laughed, as everyone burst into giggles.

We actually can’t stop aw-ing.

The event saw the likes of Sheryl Crow, the Backstreet Boys and Pitch Perfect actress Anna Kendrick perform, and will be shown on TV in the US on 20 December.

What funny face does your child make to get you laughing? Let us know below.
